Your college student's dorm room offers a unique opportunity to blend style and efficiency in a smaller space. Creative storage is a must, as are personal details that reflect their style and make their new space feel like home.
The key to decorating a dorm room is to choose complementary themes that still allow for individual expression. Stick with neutral-hued furnishings that serve as a foundation for layering on color and pattern.
Choose pieces that can be personalized — like pillows or wall art — to make the space their own. Don't forget towels and totes embroidered with their initials to keep everyone's belongings straight.
Even the smallest of spaces can feel open and spacious with bold colors, whether all around or on just one wall. If paint isn't an option, try a few removable wall decals to liven up the room.
