                       Dorm Decorating Tips
As we all know, dorm rooms aren’t exactly luxury living spaces. When you open the doors to what will be your first
independent “home,” all you will see is cement walls, two beds, two desks and maybe some bad curtains. Since you
will be spending your entire freshman year in this new home of yours, why not make it your own? When decorating
your dorm room, two of the most important factors are color and cleanliness. Buy things that are helpful for organiz-
ing, and things that add some life to those dull walls. All of this is possible even if you are on a budget. Here are some
helpful tips for decorating your dorm.


1.	    Photo	murals
 Pictures are cheap to print, and give a personal
touch to your space. Put up pictures of your
friends, family, pets, and places you’ve been. It’ll
make you feel right at home!
2.	    Throw	pillows
 There’s no better way to add a quick splash of
                                                                                                      To stay organized, keep things such as
color and comfort to your drab room. You can                                                          magazines, books, and other miscellaneous

3.Window	decorations
 You probably don’t have much of a view, so why not
brighten up the window? Affix some simple suction
cup decorations, and if you’re crafty, make your own.
4.	Curtains
 Dorm room curtains are notoriously ugly, and every
room will probably have the same ones. Replace them
with some colorful curtains of your own and you’ll in-
stantly personalize the room. Just don’t lose the original
curtains.


6.	Lamps
Fluorescent dorm lights are bad for the soul and not good
for your eyes either. Lamp light will make your room feel
much more like a home.
