How to Achieve an Instagram-Worthy Dorm Room

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

Your dorm room is a blank canvas for you to start completely fresh — you can build an entirely new space for yourself and get as ambitious as you want with decorating (well, as long as your roommates are okay with it). As exciting as that may seem, your freedom is unfortunately bound by some pesky dorm and college apartment rules — for example, no nailing or drilling your favorite art frames, gold-plated key hooks, or photos of your BFFs on your wall.

Lucky for you, VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fasteners are here to save the day and your dorm. Their easily removable adhesive hooks and fasteners make it so easy and convenient to adorn your dorm in the cutest décor. Once your room is complete with VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Fasteners, you’ll want to snap a photo ASAP to show off your dorm masterpiece on the ‘gram. #cutestdormoncampus

Keeping your space neat and cute

One essential part of adding that chic, Instagram-able touch to your room is by creating a gallery wall. Pull up your Pinterest board and start gathering your inspo, because that perfect gallery wall you’ve always wanted to create is now 100% attainable. Hang up all of your gallery wall pieces with the easy-to-hang VELCRO® Brand HANGables® adhesive wall hooks and removable wall fasteners to safely keep your décor up throughout the entire school year. Some of our fave gallery items that really pull the look together include new or vintage art prints, large statement photos or framed pieces, small knick-knacks with gold or rose gold accents and a few photos of friends and family for that perfect personal touch.

Another key to achieving a truly aesthetically pleasing living space is by keeping it as clean and organized as possible. In a dorm room, you’ll probably have limited space for extra dressers, drawers or organizational furniture (especially if you’re sharing the space with multiple other roommates). Using your wall to hang all your extra accessories is an easy, accessible and affordable way to organize your belongings without ruining the ~feel~ of the room. Using one of the chic and colorful VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable wall hooks, feel free to create an entire wall filled with your statement necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and your most fashionable purses.

Don't let organizational pieces ruin the vibe

Nothing’s worse than a room with organizational furniture that just don’t match the room. From discreetly hiding your plastic drawers underneath your bed frame, to keeping your dirty laundry bag in your closet, there are tons of tips to follow to keep those temporary furniture eye-sores out of sight. So why don’t we do the same with temporary fixtures for all our wall pieces?

You can thank VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fasteners for their sleek and modern design, which add to the stylish vibe of the room rather than ruining it. Whether you’re looking for stylish hooks for hanging your keys or coats or want an unnoticeable wall fastener for your picture frames, there are VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Fasteners to ensure your room’s vibe isn’t killed. Plus, the adhesive wall fasteners come in several sizes and shapes, including L-shaped corner pieces and rectangular fasteners, making it super easy to conceal behind all of your wall decorations.

Goodbye, hammer and nails!

One of the biggest challenges of achieving that perfect dorm aesthetic is getting around all those annoying dorm and apartment rules. As you may know, most dorms and college apartments don’t allow for you to nail or drill holes in your wall to attach securely fastened furniture and décor on your walls. They also typically don’t allow any sort of tape or tacky surface in the event that it may rip off some of the wall’s paint.

So, before you grab your hammer and nails or duct tape to start beautifying your bland dorm room, grab some safe and secure VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fasteners and Hooks instead. Both the adhesive hooks and fasteners are extremely easy to remove and guarantee not to create any damage to the wall or rip off any paint. That way, you won’t get charged with any of those move-out fees at the end of the school year (hooray!). The removal process is way easier and quicker than removing tough nails and tape anyways, giving you more time to focus on all of your final exams and projects during the end of the semester.

Ready to start planning for your dream décor for your dorm? You won’t want to forget to pick up your VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Fasteners before decorating your dorm to perfection. Getting that Instagram-able room has never been easier!
