This fall millions of students will be moving back into their dorms. Adjusting to life in the dorms can be hard, especially with little to no decor. Making your dorm room homey and comfortable is an important part of feeling at home at school.
This semester, don’t let your dorm room be dull and lifeless! You can add some life and character to your dorm room walls with some of our favorite options below!
1. Wall Decor - CanvasPrints.com
One of the best ways to turn a dorm room into a more inviting space is to hang some art on your walls! That’s why CanvasPrints.com is offering a 10% discount to any student with an active university / college email address! If you don’t have the luxury of a large amount of wall space, our canvases start at 8” x 8” inches, perfect for creating a smaller reminder of a big moment. You can also simply prop these up on a shelf or your desk. Just upload your favorite photos with your friends and family, and you’ll have a memory hanging up in your room in just a few clicks!
2. A Great Comforter
After a long day of classes, studying and walking all over campus, you’ll want to return to a cozy, inviting bed. Although most dorm room beds are relatively small, finding the right bed sheets can make it feel much more luxurious. One of our favorites is the Brooklinen Down Comforter or one of our custom pillows or blankets - it's an incredible, all season comforter that provides warmth without weight, and a cloud-like softness.
3. An Extra Long Phone Charger
There’s nothing worse than having to set up your room based upon your only outlet in the room. When you get back to your room and just want to relax and mindlessly scroll through social media, bending over backwards to charge your phone is a total pain. Save yourself the struggle and get a durable 10 foot long charging cord so you can veg out in total comfort.
4. A Fan!
It’s not uncommon for many dorms to not have AC. If this is the case, there’s no bigger life saver than a good ole’ box fan. Even better, you can get a clip on fan to place in any spot you frequent in your room! These are a great way to keep your bed even cooler at night.
5. An Area Rug
A cold, hard tile floor can be somewhat depressing, adding an area rug can make the place feel much more cozy and warmer. You’ll thank yourself while you're studying for exams in December, and your feet aren’t freezing like everyone else!
