Decorating your student house for less

Whether you’re in newly built halls of residence or an older rented property, student accommodation never feels quite like home. From stained walls and dull decor, we’ve compiled a range of tips and offers to add those personal touches to your room and make you feel right at home even if you’re miles away.

Personal Touches

Adding photos of friends and family can really cheer up your decor and make your room feel like your own. Adding a string of fairy lights can be a simple way of incorporating colour and sparkle to jazz up your student space. Shop online or in store at Argos’ 740 stores to find a range of furnishings and accessories to add personal touches including photo frames, fairy lights and wall art. Rise customers receive 3% cashback on all purchases. Say goodbye to dreary decor!
