Student accommodation in Sunderland can be pretty basic but it is a real comfort to a parent to know that their child is safely housed and not having to fend for themselves in bedsit-land. It is a wrench to leave your new student in hall but you can make the surroundings a little more homely without having to spend a fortune if you choose some budget rugs to brighten the place up a little. Although most halls of residence don’t allow furniture or fitted carpets from home, rugs are almost always allowed and as well as making the room brighter and more comfortable can also go a long way to improving noise, especially for those living below.
Cheap and cheerful
Unless your student is very unusual indeed, you will probably find that the rug you buy to brighten up their room will not be looked after particularly well. For this reason you might want to consider a flat-weave rug which does not have a pile to catch all the odds and ends that always seem to end up on a student’s floor. However, if this doesn’t bother you too much, a long pile rug next to their bed will really make them feel cared for when they are far away from home. Most long pile shaggy rugs come in a variety of colours so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
Choose a shape to fit the room
Most internet rug stores offer a range of shapes and sizes and if the room is big enough a large round rug makes a great centrepiece as well as giving a nice soft area for lounging on or just for keeping student toes warm. Circular rugs are a great way to fit in a touch of luxury to awkward spaces and as well as giving a soft landing area for feet in the morning they also soften the contours of what can be quite a utilitarian space. If you are a parent leaving a child alone for the first time it can be quite a wrench but with companies like Rug Zone offering a fast free day delivery service on almost all rugs in stock, you will know that they will have nice warm toes and a reminder of home all installed on the floor of their student accommodation almost before they have unpacked their things.
