7 Ways to Deck Out Your Dorm Room
Transforming your dorm room from gritty to fabulous doesn’t exactly come with an “easy” button. But there are fun ways to makeover and completely deck out your private space without the hassle. Get your roommate on board and check out these seven easy tips.
1. Choose A Bright Color Scheme
Selecting a color scheme is the first step towards decking out your dorm room. First, coordinate with your roommate on the color of choice for bedding, rugs and matching accessories. After long and tedious days of classes, stimulate your creative side by coming home to bright and vibrant colors.
Give your dorm room the makeover it needs by rearranging furniture (if possible) and playing around to see what works best for the space you live in. Sometimes moving a bed from one side to the other can make a world of a difference.
Remember, your room is a reflection of you, so feel free to integrate personality into your private space. Don’t be afraid to splash color on your walls with lively art pieces and photographs. Check out etsy.com for colorful one-of-a-kind artwork at an affordable price. Don’t feel limited to fancy up your white walls; applying decals are fabulous alternatives to permanent looks,

Nothing is worst than clutter in your work space, especially in smaller rooms. Create a home for your stationary by making your own desk accessories using household products; i.e. cups, jars, and flower pots. Bins are also extremely compact and handy in storing school books, clothes, and personal items.
After long days of classes, your room becomes your private sanctuary. A place to escape, unwind and reflect. Every morning when you wake up, wouldn’t it be great to feel inspired and motivated before attending to your daily routine? Keep your mind organized and focused by designating a wall designed for your personal notes, cards and daily inspirational messages.
