For college freshmen, the first few weeks of a brand-new school year can be exciting, stressful and confusing all at once. The best way to help ease the transition is to make your new college student’s dorm room as comfortable and accommodating as possible. Between classes, clubs, football games and part-time jobs, your new college kid is going to want a nice place to catch a nap. Here are our favorite dorm room decoration ideas to help you and your smartypants pull off the best room in the hall.
It’s no secret that dorm rooms are typically short on space and storage. Giving everything a proper place will help keep things in order, even through the chaos of exams and late-night study sessions. With our huge selection of day planners, wall reminders, calendars, decorative storage boxes, rustic shelves and hundreds of other smart and stylish items, we have all your student organization needs covered. Don’t forget a nice journal and some stationery so your not-so-little scholar can keep in touch.
Since most dorm rooms are pretty drab and painting is not usually permitted, help make the room sophisticated and stylish with a few key home decor items. Keep things simple and comfortable to make the biggest impact (and entice your college kid to spend more time studying) with colorful wall art, pillows, lamps and other cozy essentials. We especially love bold throw pillows and blankets to brighten up a small space.
We’ve Got Spirit, Yes We Do
Nothing keeps the spirit alive like, well, a little school spirit! We’re not sure that there’s such thing as “too much” school spirit, so go ahead and infuse a little enthusiasm for your student’s new home away from home into every corner of his or her new dorm room. From mugs and heavy-duty plastic tumblers to pillows, canvas wall hangings, blankets, yard signs and tote bags, we have every major university in this area of the world covered. After all, we have some fabulous school colors in the DFW area and beyond, so decorating around them is easy to do.
