Are you a college student? Moved out and living away from your home? You must be enjoying your independent life in the dorm rooms of your college. It is a place, where the students can relax, study, read novels, watch movies, play games, etc. In short, it's like a home away from home.
However, you can be creative and decorate the room in your own style. This small room is going to be your home for several months; so, you should make it comfortable and inviting. Here are some creative ideas to help you out.
If you share a good rapport with your roommate, and your tastes are similar, then you can take his/her help for decorations. Before taking any step, it is essential to understand the college rules, and take the necessary permissions.
If you have a big budget and enough space, then you can purchase a TV set, stereo, cleaning supplies, desk lamps, trash can, linens, and towels as well as basic kitchen gears like utensils, can opener, etc. If you have a small space, then you should look for storage items like plastic rolling storage baskets.
Always opt for multi-functional items. Attach metal towel hangers or plastic hooks to the closet door or at the back of the room door, where you can hang your clothes. This will provide more space in the room and will also keep things organized.
You can increase the storage space by selecting a high bed, or by raising the bed with cement blocks or bricks. Store your luggage and boxes under it.
If you have an artistic hand, then you can draw beautiful murals on the walls, using colored chalks, or butcher paper, and colored pencils. This can be an appealing addition to the wall decorations. Such murals can be easily removed or washed off.
Decorate the windows with suction cup decorations and colorful curtains. Select the curtains that suit the overall theme. Plants make the atmosphere refreshing, lively, and give a more homely feel. Place a potted plant at the corner of the room.
With these wonderful ideas, give a personal touch to your room and get an appreciation from your friends for your creativity. Your beautifully decorated dorm room will give you a feel of being at home and you will never be homesick.
