Create a Study Space
Studying is supposed to be a big reason for being in the dorm in the first place — why not make it cute? Let’s start with a desk. Choose a desk that you love. One that makes your dorm feel like it’s YOUR space.
Use Rugs in your Dorm Room
Any chance you get, use fabric to lose that sterile feeling and make your dorm feel cozy and cute instead. Rugs can add a pop of color. Rugs also help define different spaces; especially helpful in small spaces…like a dorm room!
Get the Lighting Just Right – No One Likes the Dr. Office Lighting
Another super important element in a naturally blah dorm. Add lamps for lighting and personality. Lighting don’t have to be boring. Choose a few different lamps for different reasons, but always choose cute when decorating your dorm. You will need task lighting for your desk.
In keeping with keeping your dorm all cozy, you will want to throw in another lamp or two.
Style with a Mirror to Make Your Dorm Feel Bigger
You always need a mirror, right?? A dorm is not exception! Might as well use a cute one, too.
Use Cute Storage Ideas & Get Creative
Storage space is most likely at a premium in any dorm room. Storage doesn’t have to mean ugly plastic bins either. There are a million ideas for cute storage! Think outside the box. Anything that can hold something can be used for storage. Use what you love.
I use vintage suitcases to hold photos at home. Who says they can’t hold papers, or binders??
Bring in Some Plants to Liven Up Your Dorm
Plants are always a great idea when decorating any space; especially when it comes to making your dorm cute & cozier. They are an especially good idea when you are trying to make your dorm feel more like home. You don’t have time or light for plants you say? Faux plants are your best friend here.
