It’s that time of year again. College students are getting prepared to go back to school to face their trials of constant studying. But the first step before classes begin is to get your dorm room set up and make it as cozy and comfortable for yourself as possible, and the best way to do this is by exploring your options for great home decor. Check out these home decor ideas that will never make you want to leave your dorm room.
Buy Your School Colors
Some students take great pride in the schools that they attend. They show school spirit, go to their games, and any other events to show their love and support for their school. One way to take this a step further is by buying your school colors and putting them in your dorm room. You can buy sheets, pillowcases, quilts, covers, rugs and more to flash off your love for your school. If you’re having trouble of what decorations would be suitable for you in your dorm and you love showing support for your school, this would be a good place to start.
Make Your Dorm Feel Like Home
Sometimes when we are away at school, we have a tendency of getting a little homesick. We miss our family and friends, and we can get a little gloomy. The best way to cure yourself from being homesick is by making your dorm room feel like you never left home. Going about this route can be fairly easy. All you would have to do buy some products that would interest you the most, as well as remind you of the feeling of you being back at home. For example, buy your favorite colors and coordinate into different things to make your room flow more, such as having the color scheme of your bed coordinating with your rug. Implementing these ideas into your dorm room will have you feeling like you’re back at home.
Everything so far might be seeming to come together for your dorm, but something is missing. What could it be? To make your space for more like home and feel more comfortable, try adding some photos around your room. Pictures of family, friends, your pets, your favorite musician and more will help make you feel even more at home and more comfortable. Even trying something such as a photo mural might help liven the room up as well to exude vibes that make you feel the coziest that you possibly can in your dorm room.
Add Plants To Your Dorm
Plants are the very basis of what gives our planet life. From the grass, to our gardens and to through the trees, plants exude a calming, nurturing nature throughout the world that can make us feel serene and at peace. With college being stressful enough as it is, why not experience this feeling by adding plants to your dorm room? While adding in a touch of nature, having plants in your room can make you feel like you’ll always be close to being outside.
Buy Comfy Furniture
We know that most dorm rooms aren’t exactly the biggest, but that doesn’t mean you can’t style it with some furniture of your own. Sometimes you don’t want to sit on your bed to do homework; you want to use a desk. One thing to remember when buying furniture for your dorm is to not only get something that’ll be most comfortable for you, but can also add more style into your room.
Add Decorative Throw Pillows
Sometimes coming home to your bed and your standard pillow can be boring at times. So liven up your bed a little by decorating it with throw pillows! Throw pillows are decorative, stylish pieces that you can add to your bed to make it look even more lavish. They can come with many designs on them, even quotes! You can even make your chair look more chic and snazzy by placing one of these pillows on your chair. Adding throw pillows in your warm will help further accentuate the beautiful, vibrant vibes within your room.
Every day before you go to class, you always want to make sure to look your best. You might think that you have everything together at first, but how sure are you that you look your finest? The best way to do this is obviously by checking yourself out in the mirror, but not just any mirror. You want to check out the leaning mirror, a mirror where not only you can check to make sure you look great before class, but it also comes with a rack on it as well! You can hang your bags, jackets, hats, and scarves on this so you’ll be ready to go and have everything you need for the day.
Almost every day, students have to plop down at their desks to do some serious studying and homework for their classes. When they do, they see the same thing (their laptop, their clock, their pencils in a cup, etc.). The rest of your dorm room is vivid with bright and vibrant decorations, so why not do the same thing for your desk as well? Start off with something small like a mini draw set, or pictures with quotes on them. Then maybe consider adding fairy lights and some flashy, nifty containers as well. That way when you enter back into your room, your desk will at least have some livelihood to it the next time you get ready to study.
Pretty, Chic Storage
College students have a lot of textbooks and materials that they have to keep track of. The last thing you want to happen is for your room to become a clutter of all of your school materials. So the best way to keep all of your things organized is by having storage in your room. You can use these to put all of your materials away, and when it’s time to go, you’ll already know where it is. Buy some storage that come with a decorative finish, so that way it doesn’t just look like another bland accessory in your dorm room. Put storage pieces in your room that you’ll admire every single time you walk in.
There are so many ways you can go about decorating your dorm room to make it fit your personality the best. The most important thing to remember is classes can be long and overwhelming, so when you come back to your room, take these ideas in mind to make you feel more at home and relaxed!
