Get Comfortable

The first thing to buy when planning out your dorm room decor is a comforter. Find one you like and work off of its color scheme and style as you do the rest of your shopping.

Here are a few we love:

By Your (Bed) Side

A bedside table is a must, and your dorm may not come with one. It’ll be your charging station, drink holder, a place to stash books, and so much more.

This happy turquoise one is great when you’re tight on space and has a hole in the bottom so you can run a power strip in for charging.

Light The Way

Every bedside table needs a hard working lamp. The key to dorm room ambiance is to ditch the florescent overhead light and use lots of lamps instead.

Sweet Dreams

Keep bad dreams away with a funky DIY dream catcher. Use a doily, embroidery hoop, and lots of yarn and ribbon. Making these is a great roommate bonding project for the first week of school.

This dramatic canopy is surprisingly simple to create. Thread the top of a large printed curtain through an inexpensive curtain rod and attach it to the ceiling with command hooks. Swoop the fabric a bit and secure it to the corner of the ceiling with another rod and hooks. Let the rest hang down the wall behind the bed.
