Decorating Your Dorm Room

decorating your dorm roomAs you settle into your college life, enjoying the new freedoms and responsibilities as an adult, you may want to try to make your dorm room feel more like home. As a place to study, relax or enjoy time with new friends, your dorm room should say something personal about you. Most college students do not have the time or budget to hire an interior decorator (and really, would you?) but there are ways to take your dorm room from its cinder block or plain white walls into something unique and inviting.

The focal point of many dorm room is the bed, so be sure to have linens that show off your style and that are comfortable and feel like “home” to you. Reversible comforters give you extra options for when you need a change, and throw pillows can be covered easily with different fabrics for a new look any time. You can also consider stringing up some holiday or other novelty lights for fun and to give you softer lighting. Decorate your walls with homemade murals of photos, your own artwork or use colored chalk to create your own wall designs. Hang curtains or use sheer fabrics to help screen out sunlight.

Your dorm room does not have to be just a place to throw your books between classes, and it should incite feelings of relaxation and fun while you study. Making your dorm room into something reflective of your own personality and tastes can be simple and easy, using your own creativity and design skills.
