7 Things From Home Depot You Need in Your Room

I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of back-to-school is always dorm shopping. I love getting to unleash my inner Joanna Gaines and pick out the perfect pieces to create my dream room. Sometimes, I get a little carried away and find it difficult to create a cohesive look. This year, I may be living at home, but I’m letting my imagination run wild with Home Depot’s dorm styling guide.

Whether your style is boho or glam or anything in between, Home Depot has got you covered for back to school (away or at home). Their styling guide makes creating your dream room so easy, so you can spend more time enjoying it and less stressing about which rug will match your comforter. Below, shop my favorites for your new dream space.

This retro-style mint green mini fridge is everything. Not only is it so cute, it even has a freezer compartment, perfect for storing your pints of Ben & Jerry’s (a study essential, IMO).

In my opinion, a good speaker is a back to school essential. Whether you’re chilling in your dorm with friends or just trying to drown out the sound of your siblings across the hall, this Bluetooth speaker is your perfect companion.

Pouf, homedepot.com, $50, shop now

A pouf is the room essential you never knew you needed. It serves as a functional piece of extra seating (or a stepping stool to boost yourself on to your elevated dorm bed) and adds a touch of boho style to any space.

A colorful headboard is just the thing to give your room an instant refresh. I’m living for this one’s seafoam green hue and geometric shape.
