Design Your Dorm Room With this Cool App

Posted -

Decorating your dorm room is one of the most exciting aspects of going to college (hello, we’ve been playing house since we were kids!). For the first time, you have complete control over how your place looks—and how clean it stays, which is both a pro and a con. But with so many decorating options to consider—Christmas lights or dog lamp?—getting started can be tricky.

Luckily, Dormify has created a new app to help style your home away from home. You just answer a few questions about your personaltiy and style preferences, then their Design Plan Generator gives you personalized dorm themes, from boho glam to punk princess. The app even suggests design options for your roommate based on your results, so your entire room is color-coordinated. The handy app acts as both an interior designer and a personal shopper, allowing you to buy furnishings directly from the site. When you connect to Dormify through Facebook, you can share your saved looks with friends and see their picks as well. Or if you’re looking for someone with professional taste, Dormify offers styling advice through chat, email, text, and more!

The app is completely free and the quiz is pretty fun (as is anything that can tell you more about yourself). Bonus: if you order bedding through a “collection” (a set, which at the very least includes a duvert or comforter, a sheet set, decorative pillow, and a decorative throw blanket), you get 10% off at

Smart shopping and happy decorating, collegiettes!
