Dorm Decor You Need to Check Out

With the start of the school year comes the start of dorm room decorating. Your dorm will be your new home for the next few months, so decorating is a must! Here are our favorite dorm room decorations to turn any boring college dorm room into a cozy yet stylish oasis.


Tapestries are a staple for any college dorm room. With thousands of options the possibilities are endless! One tip we have is to hang a string of lights behind your tapestry for a cool effect with warm lighting.

Picture walls are both creative and easy to do. If you’re ever missing your favorite people back home this is a great idea for you! Print photos of all your friends and family (and dogs) to make a huge photo collage that can turn any boring wall into a picture masterpiece.

Changing the lighting is key in making any dorm room feel cozier. Hang up some string lights to completely transform the vibe of your dorm.

Plants are a great way to add some décor. Buy some colorful pots for your favorite succulents to transform any desk or windowsill into a greenhouse masterpiece. Just don’t forget to water them!

We hope that your new dorm room feels just like home. Good luck this semester!
