Dorm Decor

tassle1With the graduation ceremonies and parties finished, it is now time to focus on the Dorm-Ward Bound students. Getting ready for college can be overwhelming enough, and shopping for room decorations can add to the anxiety. Everyone wants to have a cool dorm room. We researched  how to make the most of dorm living. With these decorating hints, you’ll have the best room on the hall.

Rearrange your space. The first thing that the experts recommend doing is rearranging the furniture in your room. Before unpacking, move everything around to give the room a whole new look.

Start with decorating your bed. The bed is really the centerpiece of the room. That’s where you can bring in a lot of personality. By putting your bed flush against the wall for a daybed look. The bed takes up less space and doubles as a couch.

Raise the standard. Elevating beds onto risers, allocating a minimum clearance of 24 inches above the floor. The added height allows space for storage bins underneath the bed. Plan on purchasing an extra-long bed skirt between 24 and 30 inches in length to hide risers and storage containers.

Work with a neutral color. Using a neutral color throughout the room can bring the room together. You (and your roommate) may have different tastes, but if you have one unifying color it looks more cohesive.

Maximize your space. Making the most out of minimal space by brining in accessories with double uses. Ottomans are great for seating and inner storage. Utilize the closet doors as another option for storage. A hanging shoe rack doesn’t take up floor space and can also be used to store socks, t-shirts, and undergarments. Be sure to purchase a closet rod extender with adjustable height and width to maximize the height of the closet. Organizational or decorative baskets are a must in any closet.

Use your walls. Creating a gallery wall with pictures adds an easy, personal touch to any room. Temporary wallpaper jazzes up a plain white wall or ceiling.

Hide dorm floors. Provide panache underfoot. Don’t be afraid to add personality from the floor up. Decorative rugs, carpet squares, or bound carpets make an eye-catching focal point and bring warmth.
