27 Excellent College Dorm Room Ideas

Are you going to college and have dreams of a great dorm room? That first step outside home to stretch your wings is both exciting and cool. For the first time, you get to decorate a room that is away from your house, and make it your very own. If you have a shared dorm space, you can demarcate the areas which are yours, and decorate that area according to your preference. The point of a dorm room is that it should reflect your personal style.

After you have your dorm room alloted, there are many ways in which you can set it up. If you want inspiration, websites and magazines have plenty of College Dorm Room Ideas. Your personality and choices come into play in a big way when you are doing up a dorm room. You can play with the furniture in the room and give it a personal touch with memoirs and mementoes. Personal picture frames or posters are great visual ideas to decorate a dorm room. Depending on whether the room is only for you or whether it on a shared basis, the bed also needs to be chosen. Your dorm bed should be comfy without being elaborate, and sturdily built to last several years. You can go for a single bed or a double bunk according to the number of people you are sharing the room with. You also need several bedsheets for your room. If you want a touch of vibrance, add bright splashes of color in the form of cute cushions and pillows. To enjoy relaxed periods between hours of study, you can set up a cushy beanbag in the dorm room. Curtains also go a long way in adding to the look of the room. Bright cotton curtains in different patterns give a cheerful feel to the dorm room.
