Every year, thousands of college freshman pile into their dorms during orientation week. Greetings ensue amongst students while they are all moving their mis-matched furniture and belongings in and most likely, judging the rooms of others in comparison to their own.
What all students have in common during this stressful time is the excitement and eagerness that accompanies the task of setting up a living space of their own — and decorating it.
Whether it is through a million pictures thumb-tacked onto cork boards, or the classic posters of The Beatles and Bob Marley hung high above unnecessarily large stereo systems, everyone has their own dorm personality. Of course, it’s important to tap into this personality when setting up your dorm, so it will embody who you are.
At first, the prospect of decorating your dorm room to match your style and personality seemed a difficult task.
You need to have a maximum storage capacity — and of course optimal comfort. Sturdy storage bins and multiple hanging closet organizers let you make the most out of your small space. You can also used memory foam pillows and mattress covers to add a homey feel to your room. Use duvet set, rug and several posters also perfectly illustrated your personality.
