There’s nothing quite like moving to a new city – new people, new food, new culture, and new places to explore. But when you finally walk into your hostel in Nagawara, all you see are blank white walls and basic furniture. Nothing reflects the vibrance and excitement of your new city. There’s nothing to prove that this space is going to be the setting for a whole new chapter of your life. But don’t worry, you don’t have to settle for blank spaces and boring decor. With these easy DIY projects, you can soon turn your room into a comfortable and stress-free zone that matches your vibe and suits your personality. So, let’s check them out:
DIY Wall Tapestry
Tapestries aren’t just for the uber-rich or super-fancy. You can have a wall tapestry in your own hostel room. Your favourite bedsheet will do the job. Hostel beds tend to be narrow single ones, so your beautiful double bedsheets will be out of commission while you’re living in a hostel. Unless you turn them into a tapestry. Simply drape your sheet over one of your walls and you’ve just created an accent wall for your hostel room. You can easily change the bedsheets to match your decor and colour scheme or choose a vibrant printed one to add an exciting pop of colour to your space.
Washi Tape Photo ‘Frames’
We’ve all seen the artsy photo walls that define hostel rooms on Pinterest and Instagram. But framing all your favourite shots can be both time-consuming and expensive. Not to mention, your hostel warden probably won’t give you permission to drill holes into your wall for those photo frames either. So, what do you do? Washi tape to the rescue! Colourful printed tapes like washi tape can easily be used to create faux borders for your photographs. You can mix and match the colours and shapes to add some personality to the process. It’s cheap, quick and looks really cool. Best of all, these tapes are really easy to remove so you can switch up your designs as often as you like.
Photo Frame Message Board
Life in hostel is always busy, sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Sometimes you wish you had a designated place to write reminders for yourself or your roommates (especially when it’s their turn to sweep the room). But a whiteboard can be so expensive, not to mention how much space it takes up. Luckily, you can DIY a message board for yourself using any old photo frame. Simply replace the photo with a plain sheet of paper and replace the glass. Then you can use that surface to leave messages and reminders with a whiteboard marker that can be easily erased.
No, we don’t just mean growing them yourself. Succulents are all the rage right now, but they’re finicky to maintain and keep alive. But just because you don’t have a green thumb doesn’t mean you can’t make your room seem gorgeously green. You can DIY your own indestructible succulents out of felt and “plant” them in an old coffee cup. Now you can enjoy the beauty of having succulents in your room without having to worry about watering your plant babies.
Give Your Fan an Upgrade
While you might have spent a lot of time in between classes decorating and beautifying your room in your hostel near Pesit, have you ever considered adding some colour to your ceiling? Specifically your ceiling fan. You see, with all the art, photos and crafts adorning your walls, it seems a little odd to have a plain white ceiling fan. It’s really easy to give it some upgrade (without causing any damage to the blades) if you rely on simple decals or washi tape. Since these are easy to peel and very light, they won’t affect the speed of your fan, but they can add major style points to your room. Turn to Pinterest if you need any design inspiration.
With these easy DIY projects you can easily turn your hostel room from drab to fab. So, make sure you try them out. Your room will become a talking point among friends and definitely the backdrop for all your Instagram photos.
