5 Ideas for Decorating a Dorm Room

Dorm rooms are so small and so plain that you cannot picture yourself living in one for a whole semester, right? All it takes is a little decor to make it comfy. So, if you have a paper to write you should give it to Thesisrush.com and get down to sprucing up your dorm room.

Here are 5 ideas to get you started. 

  1. Get an Open-Cube Storage Set

There isn’t a whole lot of space to work with in a dorm room. You will need somewhere to stash all your stuff. An open-cube storage set will come in handy. You can use it to display your collectibles and store the rest of your stuff in the enclosed drawers.

  • Get a Headboard for Your Bed

Dorm beds are painfully plain and small. They are an eye-sore whenever you go to sleep or bring someone over. A headboard will solve all of that and make your bed look bigger and more comfy. The headboard will also make the room feel more homely. For aesthetics, you should consider getting matching headboards with your roommate.

  • Get a Small Couch

Where will your friends sit when they come over for a game or a movie? You should really consider getting a small couch that can sit two or three people. You should also consider getting throw-down pillows in case you plan on inviting more than one or two friends – these pillows are just as comfortable as a couch would be.

  • Bring in Some Art

You don’t want to be staring at plain walls all day – it is depressing. As such, get creative and bring in some art. Most students decorate their walls with pictures of their favorite celebrities, graffiti, and generally framed pictures that they feel express their personalities. You can do the same – just make sure that your roommate is okay with it. You can also simply get the wallpaper.

  • Soften the Lighting

Most dorm rooms feature just one overhead bulb that shines bright. This is bound to cause a lot of inconvenience at some point. For instance, you may need to study while your roommate needs to sleep. As such, change the bright bulb for a softer fixture. Additionally, you will need to get a fashionable headlamp that you can use when the main lights are turned off. You will spend a lot of time of your college life in your dorm room. It will be where you retreat to get away from it all, where you party, and where you work on your homework. It will be like your safe space, so make sure that it is comfy and inviting.
