1. Full length mirror

3. Storage ottoman

Dorm rooms have limited storage space so a good idea that both doubles as storage and décor are storage ottomans. These can also become additional seating for when you have friends over, while holding inside blankets, jumpers or anything else you might need.

4. Coat hanger

Coat hangers can be a cute way of displaying some of your favourite pieces of clothing, handbags or even hats while maximising closet space. As you will probably not be able to drill anything to the wall, our suggestion is to buy a standing coat hanger for that awkward corner in your dorm room.

Dorm room walls are plain and simple, and some people like them as they are. However, if you like the minimal look does not mean that you have to give up on a little bit of art on the walls. Art can be just as simple as you want it to be, just print out your favourite designs and pop them into a plain frame.
