Create a dorm room that feels and functions like a home. It’s bad enough that you’re away from home, homesick and are waking up in a strange room all of a sudden. Don’t make the new-to-college experience even worse by not decorating your dorm that best reflects your style, inspires you, and helps you get back on track. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive for it to be a desirable destination. In a dorm room, you have stuff that you make use of day after day so, strive to make everyday items beautiful to blend in with the dorm room décor. Learn to build upon what you can get at dirt-cheap prices and easily. Rethink how you want to organize your dorm room, right before you decide to frame some meaningful work upon the walls.
According to IKEA Interior Designer, Fredrik Biel, “Your dorm room needs to function just like an entire home. It needs to be a bedroom, a living room, a study and have lots of storage space. Unlike your bedroom at home, you need to store more than just clothes and shoes in your dorm room.”
He suggests creating a place for storing things like bedding, cleaning products, and toiletries that’s hidden away from view behind two curtains. It offers an easy, cost-effective alternative for adding color or pattern to the dorm room.
