Students are in a tricky position and there’s no denying it. On one hand their natural instinct is to spend as much time in bed as possible – of course, whether that’s spent sleeping or doing something else is entirely dependent on the individual. But on the other hand they can often find their creative hands tied by a combination of overbearing landlords, the likelihood that they will have to move houses every twelve months as friendship groups and personal circumstances change, or simply having limited funds as working takes a back-seat to studying. So what to do with an area of space that you spend most of your time in, but either can’t afford or aren’t allowed to decorate?
