“ Tidy Room. Tidy Mind.  ”

We have all heard that quote, haven’t we? It’s pretty self-explanatory and does make sense.

I don’t know about you, but when I try and work in my office, and there is rubbish everywhere, pens flying in all directions and papers stacked up to my eyeballs- I can’t work. I can’t be productive because I can’t concentrate on getting anything I need to get done. 

Which is why I turned to my good old friend, Pinterest. There are a lot of fantastic desks and office spaces on there which are beautiful and something worth dreaming about, however, at uni, you just don’t have space. You have to make use of what you’ve got, which 98% of the time is not a lot. 

Don’t threat! I’ve compiled a list of 15 Uni appropriate desk inspirations, to give you space saving ideas and just some general inspiration on how you can jazz up a dull workplace. Unfortunately, this does mean that you no longer have any excuses for not doing your work.

Reading lamps which attach to the wall are a perfect space-saving idea and mean you can carry on working late into the night! YAY!

Nothing beats having lots of cute quotes and pictures on your wall above you, to bring a smile to your face when your drowning in coursework and deadlines.

Folders, folders, folders! What more can I say? They have saved my life; I don’t know how I would organise all my work without them.

Personalise your desk area to make it more of a work friendly zone. If you love travelling pin a map up, if you love cats, pin lots of pictures of cats up, the list of possibilities is endless.

Stands to keep your notebooks up off your desk to give you more space to work is the best idea since sliced bread if you ask me!

Fairy lights make any room or area 10000% better.

If you can choose, picking a desk place near a window will help get light in, and make it easier to work.

Just like the fairy lights, plants also make any area 10000% better although at uni I would probably stick to the fake ones because you know, less stress.
