Dorm Room Makeovers


Dorm room makeovers are easy when you get great ideas. Sometimes it’s difficult to image all of the ways you can decorate your dorm room. Especially when you haven’t yet seen the layout or size of the room. Before moving into your dorm room, you can begin your purchases with the appliances (that are allowec), bedding, electronics,and shower items. Generally, dorm room beds are Twin XL (extra long) but always make sure to check with your residence hall. Better safe than sorry. Whatever you do, purchase a mattress protector. You might not have a clue where that bed has been or who has been on that bed.

When adding another piece of furinture, such as a bench for extra seating, take measurements of the space where it’s going to be placed. The last thing you want, is to bring a bulky piece of furniture to your extra small dorm room. You might end up with a very upset roommate.  So this is probably the best time to get a hold of your future roommate and ask what they are bringing to avoid future conflicts.

Dorm room walls are painted some type of white color. Nailing things to the wall are a no no. Make sure to bring Command (or similar product) no-damage hooks or strips, to avoid damaging the walls.  The right product can make it easier for you to hang anything from light weight tapestries to wire photo displays.  Anything that will make your room a little homier and comfortable.
