Dorm Rugs & Curtains
Dorm Rugs + Windows
Part of living in a dorm or off-campus apartment is the realization that you might switch dorm rooms or roommates in the future. Does that mean that you shouldn’t decorate? Not at all. Customizing your room – even if you end up changing down the road – goes a long way to helping you have tons of fun at college. Expressing yourself with decor helps you feel at home, connects you with other people and makes it easier to end up with great friends for life. Putting your personal touch on the room is exciting and inspiring, perfect for studying and relaxing too. At PBteen, we want you to feel comfortable in your home away from home. Our dorm rugs and windows accents bring major style and warmth to the room. Here are a few design ideas.
Rugs and window treatments are awesome ways to infuse pops of color and personality into a dorm room or apartment. They’re distinctive and bright, and don’t require any nails to work. That’s a big help if your dorm has certain rules. Of course, we offer other ways to hang artwork and other favorite personal decor too, but rugs and curtains are a major swathe of excitement with practically no work at all.
Besides fashion, there are other reasons rugs are a popular addition to dorm rooms. One is comfort. If you have to get up early in the morning to use the bathroom or take a shower, it’s really nice not to have to touch cold tiles with bare feet. A cozy rug lets you get your bearings while you put on some slippers.
Rugs also let you study anywhere and in any position. When you’re trying to solve a problem or come up with an idea for an important project, anything goes. You can hang upside down from the foot of your bed, lay out on the floor or just lean up against your bed. A rug makes sure you’re comfy if you decide to sit on the floor.
Blackout curtains are another functional and stylish piece of decor that makes it easier to study. That’s especially true if you use your laptop a lot. No one wants to deal with glare when you’re trying to read. Blackout curtains let you decide how much sunlight you want in the room. If things are too bright, they block it all, no problem.
Looking for a chic room theme? One possibility is to use bold colors and awesome patterns to bring Paris fashion to your space. Ivory, turquoise and bright pink grab lots of attention right away. Custom accent rugs let you match endless hues. Choose striped or polka dot drapes in black-and-white. For bedding, mix and match monotone motifs with exquisite faux fur pillows.
Want some prep flair instead? Focus on a solid rug with a large border and bedding with simple designs. Stripes give the room a nautical feel. Complementary colors like green and pink capture the essence of preppy style.
