4 Steps to Designing Your Ideal Dorm Room

  1. Color Palette and Theme: When deciding what the color palette and theme of your college dorm room should be, keep it simple. Less is more when you're starting out because the space will most likely be smaller than you think. Stick to soft colors and minimal patterns. Or if you choose to have a statement piece, such as your headboard, keep your pillows, sheets, and duvet on the minimalistic side.

  2. Bedding and Textiles: Your bed is the heart of your dorm room, so keep this space crisp and inviting. Opt for pieces and patterns that you know you won't get sick of over the course of the year(s).

  3. Soft Lighting: Add some charm to your room with a light fixture that is both practical in size and functional. Every inch counts, so make sure this is a piece that you can place on your bedside table or desk.

  4. Personal Touches: Incorporate your personality into your dorm room by displaying your favorite books, framed photos, and cherished keepsakes.
