Going to college or sending your kids there? If you are going to have a dorm room, you need to decorate and personalize it somehow. Dorm rooms are often rather small and you still need to accommodate a lot there, and express your personality adding some touches. Let’s see what options you may take and get some inspiration.

Girly And Glam Rooms

If you feel girly and glam, it’s high time to express yourself in the room décor. To make your dorm room cuter you can go for metallic, better gold, accents here and there – from gold polka dot decals on the walls to metallic lamps and accessories. Pink and blush are welcome: buy some pink or blush pillows, curtains, maybe rugs. String lights are great to make the space cozier and more inviting and their light will also make the room more glam. One more idea is to hang various wall art pieces: red lips, photos of various famous women you like.

Black and navy with white will make the space beach-inspired. Warm woods will make it cozier, lights will make it much more inviting. Add personal photos hanging and various geometric patterns and accessories to make the space look cooler. Various textural textiles like crochet blankets or faux fur rugs will make your room more eye-catchy.
