Creative Dorm Room Decor
Don't let white walls and plain floors take over your dorm room; add your own style with creative projects.
Bedding is an important part of your dorm room, since most students spend a lot of time studying and relaxing on their bed. Try a solid comforter with patterned sheets or mix patterns like a stripe with a floral. You can never have too many pillows! Choose different colors and textures to add spice to your bed.
Create a large rug on a budget by lining up two smaller, identical rugs. This extra-large rug will save you from buying a bulky roll of carpet, since most schools do not provide rugs. Another trick to craft a large rug is using sample carpet tiles from a home center. Pick out different colors and create a large pattern to suit your fancy.
Create storage for your dishware with a double-tier shelf that will provide more room for more dishes. Choose a box set of dishes that will add to the graphic pattern of the room. These Asian-inspired dishes become a piece of art in the room, along with having their everyday dish duties.
