Hostel life can be pretty great. What’s not to love about living with your friends every day and doing everything together? If you’re living in a boys PG in Vijayawada, you probably agree. But there are some things that hostels miss out on. The rooms are pretty basic, if not completely bland. And with multiple people sharing the space, they tend to get pretty cluttered too. So, how can you transform your hostel room into a more livable place without worrying about losing your security deposit to the owners who don’t appreciate your creative ‘changes’ in the rooms? We have the answers. With these amazing hostel room hacks you’ll be able to make your hostel room a lot more functional and comfortable. Let’s check them out:
Get bed risers
When you’re dealing with a space as small as a hostel room, you have to think creatively about how to create space for storage. Getting Bed Risers is a simple and inexpensive way to do just that. You can enjoy the feeling of a lofted bed and use the newly freed space for additional storage in your room. Sounds like a win-win situation to us. Thinking of a place to pack away extra luggage, seasonal clothes etc?Now you know where to do that.
Shut the door
The door in your room can feel like a wasted space, but that’s only if you’re not using it to its fullest. The back of your bedroom door can actually be a great space for you to use once you’ve added a few command hooks. Use it to hang your keys, umbrellas, other accessories, or to hang up a shoe organiser that’ll protect your collection of footwear and make them easily accessible too. Another way to use your door is to affix a full length mirror to it. This will make your room seem bigger and give you a perfect spot for your mirror selfies.
If you’re trying to maximise the space on your desk or inside your drawers, buying organisers is a good way to do it. And sure, you can buy some expensive organisers online, but it’s equally easy to repurpose some items that you have lying at home. Ice cube trays can easily be reused as jewellery organisers, feel free to reuse cardboard boxes as desk dividers, fashion stationery holders out of empty cans and more. Using these items to compartmentalise your storage space will make it a lot easier for you to stay organised in your hostel room.
Don’t skimp on lighting
When you’re living in a girls hostel in Chennai, your room will probably come with one main tubelight. And that’s great, but if you’re sharing a room with a roommate or if you don’t want to get out of bed every time you need to switch off the lights, it can be inconvenient too. That’s why investing in a desk lamp, or a bedside lamp can be a huge help in your hostel room. This will ensure you have better lighting when you read or work, especially if you and your roommate have opposite schedules. You can even buy one of the laptop light clips that you can attach over your keyboard if you’re working at night.
With these hostel living hacks, you’ll be able to create a space that’s a lot more comfortable and useful, without worrying about damaging your room. And since these hacks are pretty inexpensive, you don’t need to worry about having to blow your entire monthly allowance on them either. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and try them out in your hostel room.
