Decorating your box room can be a little tricky. Perhaps you’re struggling with how to make it work as a modern office space, whilst still feeling like a cosy place you want to relax and unwind in at the end of the day. Fear not, there are plenty of small things you can do to decorate without risking your deposit.
With our box room ideas, we’re making sure you can do everything you need to in yours. From space-saving storage to desk essentials – we’ve asked the experts at AllSole for their tips and tricks…
#1 Trick the eye with mirrors
It can feel difficult to make your box room feel anything other than dull and drab at times. Sure, your space might be limited, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a fab room that LOOKS big – right?! Mirrors are a key feature to have in any box room. Investing in a large floor-standing mirror will instantly make your room feel bigger, improve your lighting and will make for a quick fix in terms of styling. Add in some smaller, decorative mirrors to balance the space too.
#2 Adopt some easygoing plants
Don’t let a compact space stop you from being a plant-mom! Plants are the perfect way to breathe new life into a room. There are plenty of plants that are easy to nurture in small spaces, making for the perfect roommate (Cacti and Succulents shouldn’t let you down). Plus, pots and plant stands are another easy way to decorate with no risk, no commitment and no difficulty – which is perfect for rented accommodation.
#3 Make it yours!
Remember that you don’t have to stick to the latest trend or Instagram phase, this is your space! There’s so much that can be done with the things you have lying under your bed and the books on your shelves.
Find beauty in the ordinary and get cracking. You could create a side table with your magazine collection or display your favourite accessories on a bookshelf instead of flinging them into a cupboard. You don’t have to display your favourite prints in a wall-gallery, try leaning them against a bare wall and watch the space improve.
