How to Make Your Dorm a Home Away From Home

When you’re trying to accessorize your dorm, 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 dorm 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.
 

Make It Comfortable, Not Cluttered

 
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 dorm decorations and compromise with your roommate to avoid friction over wall decorations.
 

Consider a New Dorm Rug

Winter Warrior Rugs Your Home Needs As The Season Gets Colder

Winter is fully upon us. While 48% of homeowners planned to decorate their homes in 2018, there are many of us that need that decor to be practical as well. Nothing beats the dynamic duo of beauty and practicality. Area rugs are perfect examples of that dynamic duo and as winter winds get stronger and snows get deeper, you’ll wish you had some draped around your house. Whether you’re thinking of custom rugs, outdoor rugs, or those braided rugs your aunt was so fond of, winter calls for a few places that rugs are extremely convenient.

The Garage

The perfect place to have an outdoor rug is the entrance from your garage to your home. Tramping snowy, slushy, salty boots into your house isn’t ideal. Having a place to remove those boots outdoors without having to tread on the bare garage floor will save your entrance way. Of course, having a rug there will also help deter the risk of slipping from a wet or frozen garage floor surface.

The Foyer

Tis’ the season for entertaining, so set up your entryway as such. Wherever people enter your house the most should have a sturdy, spacious rug in the entrance. Shoes come off and are left there, saving that entryway from becoming a slippery, muddy, disaster zone as a first impression. Make sure the rug is big enough to let people inside so they aren’t standing in the doorway trying to get their boots off on a rug that’s too small.

The Pet Entrance

Our furry friends still need to go outside to do their business in the winter. While the summer doesn’t cause us much need to wipe paws, the winter is a whole different animal. Wherever your pet exits and enters your home after they finish their business should have an area rug. This way your excited doggo won’t be trouncing around dirty paw prints while you struggle to wipe those wet paws off. You know how people and pets are entering and exiting your home this winter. Put some area rugs in the appropriate places and you’ll find yourself doing a whole lot less floor cleaning than you would’ve without them.
