If you are a university goer, then your first term will be quickly coming to an end! And, we all know what that means – it’s nearly Christmas! The majority of students will venture home over the Christmas break from uni to celebrate with family and friends – but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start of the festivities by decorating your student flat just like you would at home. Whether you fancy yourself as a Christmas fiend or you fall more into Grinch category, it can be nice to give your student flat a touch of tidings of comfort and joy! Get merry with your friends and flatmates in the run up to returning home, and give your flat that festive feel by making the most of your smaller space without breaking the student loan budget. So, here is our Newcastle Student Housing ultimate guide to making your student flat feel festive…

Buy affordable decorations!

It might be the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also an extremely expensive one, especially for students strapped for cash after blowing the student loan. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the festivities! If you’re looking to jazz up your student digs, there are a number of great options to keep things affordable! Hit the high street and go bargain hunting for low-cost Christmas items to deck the halls. Baubles, token tacky tinsel and so on can all be picked up in Primark, Poundland or even your local supermarket! It might not last forever, but it doesn’t have to be – it’s a bit of fun to last a couple weeks!

Get crafting!

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a Kirsty Allsopp, why not throw back to your Art Attack days and get crafting! Not only is this a great way to stay within the budget, but it could make for a fun festive activity for you and your flatmates to enjoy! Take you DIY decorations to a whole new level this year! There is no end of crafting creations to inspire you online, so have a Google and read some top DIY blogs and get cutting and sticking!

Let there be light!

Fairy lights are an essential for every student flat, but even more so around Christmas time! Give your flat some true sparkle and shine with drapings of fairy lights, inside and out. They create a cosy ambience that can help create that Christmas tree vibe without attempting to drag one through your front foot.

It’s all about the scent!

There is no better way to create atmosphere in a room than with a classic Christmas scent with festive themes candles and diffusers! Yankee Candles array of Christmassy options in their Christmas collection, from cinnamon to gingerbread and red berry scents you’ll be spoilt for choice. Candles are the ultimate item for a winter wind down and will make you feel all cosy and warm in your student flat.
