|A Dorm Room Should Feel Like Home|
Begin by selecting a color theme. Most dorm rooms are not allowed to be painted, so your expressions of color will have to be found elsewhere. Neutrals create calm, soothing space, and make a room look larger. By neutrals, I don’t mean just solids. Combine prints, stripes, patterns, and add accents with textures or bold, wild colors. Color blocking is another great look, using a different solid of coordinating colors for bedding, curtains, wall art, chair cushions, etc. ‘Boho-glam’ (bohemian glamour) uses eclectic color combinations and patterns from India and Southeast Asia.
Make certain your student has excellent task lighting and a comfortable desk chair. There are so many options available, each can look customized by the color and style you choose. Curtains on spring rods are inexpensive and easy to make out of sheets or lightweight fabrics to add an extra layer of interest.
Blinds are easy and inexpensive fixes. Build a headboard out of wood, covered in batting and a fabric of choice. Hang mirrors to make the room appear larger and add some sparkle. An area rug is always comfortable underfoot.
There’s never enough storage, so add ottomans to use as seating for visitors and extra storage. Closets never have enough storage, so getting an organizer is key. There are some excellent retailers that sell everything from basic school supplies to furniture for easy one stop shopping.
