On those days when you are mentally and physically drained because of school, sometimes you just want to come home to a space that is cozy and intimate.

Out of all dormitory decors, this is one of the most crucial. Not only does it add variety to your wall, it also helps you organize your day and reminds you of important school due dates. An absolute investment to those who are forgetful!

3. Comfy Chair

This is obviously a necessity. You need a spot to relax other than your bed right? There are many modern chairs at the moment that are not only cheap but also very aesthetically pleasing. Make sure it’s one of the top things on your checklist!

5. Faux Fur Rug

When looking for dorm essentials, don’t forget a rug! Nothing feels more satisfying than rubbing your skin on a soft fur rug. Got tired or cold feet after walking back and forth across the school campus? This is the best thing to come home to. It also brings life to your dull and monotonous floor.

6. Paper Lanterns

If you’re planning to throw a mini party or a get together, consider investing in paper lanterns. Apart from fairy string lights, these cute light decors come in different colours and shapes which also add the perfect cozy yet entertaining vibe to your little living space!
