Urban Outfitters dorm decor is a huge trend for college. Whether you need a tapestry, wall art, fluffy pillows, or anything to make the perfect dorm decor aesthetic… Urban Outfitters will be your go-to! Shopping for your dorm for the first year of college isn’t always easy, and with a few budgeting tricks, you can allow yourself to splurge on the comforter you have been wanting. Super trendy, boho and modern, Urban Outfitters dorm decor has it all, not to mention it is every college girl’s guide to fashion. Let’s get started on these 8 trends!
1. Shag Pillow
One step into Urban Outfitters online website and you are already hooked. I know it can be hard to choose only a few things from there without going over your budget. Shag pillows are a totally groovy, trendy move for your dorm. If you pair a purple shag pillow with a white comforter, boom! You are already aesthetic. Most college decor doesn’t all come together overnight. I strongly suggest bringing the basics on move-in day, bedding, rug, (etc.), and then seeing how you develop a routine from there. This way you won’t buy something that you don’t need! For instance, maybe your roommate planned on getting a storage shelf for the two of you to share, or a full-length mirror on the back of the door. After all, dorm rooms are pretty small and don’t give you much room to work with.
2. Wall Decor
If there is one way to make a statement in a dorm room, it is a trendy, chic, modern wall hanging. This could be of anything you want, Urban Outfitters has no end to selection. You can get your money’s worth with this item, because you can use it year after year, and even hang it up in your home when you return from school in the summer. Wall decor is probably my favorite way to brighten up a room, especially dorm rooms. My college is pretty old, and the dorms were built over 20 years ago, so when I moved in, it wasn’t too glamorous. It is reassuring to know that a little decor can make all the difference, and have fun with it!
Ok, are you even in college if you don’t own a tapestry? Seriously though, all jokes aside, this is one you’ll need. Tapestries offer a huge pop of color and style to your dorm room you now can make your own. Totally worth it, too, and be sure to take a bunch of classic college pics with it! Tapestries are sold in a wide variety of colors and styles, so if you aren’t too sure which color is for you, you can wait until the school year starts and ask your roomie what her thoughts are. Staying neutral is a good thing!
4. Wall Mirrors
If there is one thing truly one of a kind about Urban Outfitters dorm decor, it is their mirrors. Super cute, trendy, and it will make your room appear to be bigger. Plus, sometimes sticking to the simple decorations is actually the best way to add style to your room! I love adding wall mirrors, something about it just feels so sophisticated. Who said dorm rooms have to be boring?
5. Patterned Rug
If there is one thing you for sure will need when you arrive at your new dorm, it is a rug. Dorms only come with the bare basics – a bed, closet, and desk. That is all. So with this in mind, have some fun with adding your own texture to the room. A patterned rug can do more than just be cozy in the morning, it actually adds a lot of vibrancy to the room itself! Get cozy with this new pop of color.
6. Signature Letters
One of the best ways to add simple decor to any dorm room is by hanging your first initial. You could place it on the window sill, on your desk or bedside table, and so on. This is just a cute and friendly way for personalizing your room! Letters can be sold individually in the form of a wall hanging, or you can get it on a pillow. Of course, pillows are not just for sleeping, they are also for adding decor!
This is the ultimate dorm room decor essentials. Urban Outfitters puts a trendy, boho spin on traditional white Christmas lights that everyone has in their dorm. Also, aside from being a must-have and aesthetic, putting these lights up is not as hard as it looks, and you’ll use them for all the years that you live on campus! Super cozy at night, they are every college student’s night-light. This purchase will bring you to a classic aesthetic vibe in no time.
Last but not least, storage is essential in college. Between your books, school supplies, makeup, and miscellaneous, you are going to need an efficient organization regime. The good news about that is Urban Outfitters has a huge selection of storage and shelving. If possible, you could even get a couple of shelves to adhere to the dorm wall, to save space and avoid clutter. You will really get a lot of use out of this because of how easy it is to get unorganized in college. Keeping your room clean just got ten times easier!
