5 Tips for Major Dorm Room Style

Are you, or your child headed off to college this year? We want to help take your dorm room to the next level with 5 impactful decorating tips. Read on to learn how to make your dorm room POP!

1. Wow with Wallpaper

Temporary wallpaper will make a big statement in your room. Dorm rooms are small, so (good news!) you won't need a lot of wallpaper. Decorate the whole room in a simple wallpaper pattern or pick an accent wall and go bold with the pattern and color! Peel and stick paper is such a fun way to make a statement in a dorm room.

2. Cover the Floor

Most dorm rooms don't have the best flooring options, so cover up your floor with a fun rug. Choose a big rug to cover the entire floor or choose a small accent rug for the desk area or walkway.

3. Customize The Bed

Make the bed more unique with a headboard! Headboards can be a DIY project or twin sizes can be found at numerous stores for excellent prices. Upholstered headboards will be comfortable for reading in bed and colorful and patterned headboards will create a fun focal point in the room.

4. Coordinate with Roommate

If you want to create a coordinating look for the entire room, coordinate with your roommate. An easy way to achieve this is to purchase bedding sets that are reversible and have each bed show a different side of the bedding. Another way to achieve this is to purchase matching bedding and have different throw pillows on each bed.

5. Create a Room that Reflects YOU!

This might be your first time decorating on your own so finding your own personal decorating style might seem hard. To start finding your style, gather photos of things you love. Once you gather your inspiration, apply the colors, patterns, and textures from those photos into your decor and you will eventually create a space that reflects you!
