When you’re trying to accessorize your dorm room, you need an interior that makes you feel comfortable but able to fit in a small space. The good news is, you don’t need huge carpets or oversized lamps to make your room feel like home. Carve out a home away from home at school with the following tips.
Remember, the right rug can tie the dorm room together, increase the comfort level of what may be a cramped space, and offer visual appeal that makes your dorm room feel more like home.
You probably have many mementos, pictures, and other keepsakes in your room at home you’d like to take with you to college. Take time to curate these things and only take what you need to feel at home; too much, and you’ll clutter your space. College life is demanding for most, and coming home to a stuffy and messy dorm isn’t conducive to good study habits.
Take Advantage of Wall Space
What most dorm rooms lack in terms of floor space they make up for in wall space. While you may need to share the available real estate with a roommate, you can make your dorm feel more like your own with movie posters, tapestries, your own artwork, or even prints you can check out of the local library. Just be sure to follow your school’s rules for decorations and compromise with your roommate to avoid friction over wall decorations.
