Ah, college dorms. Those cozy, cell-sized rooms that give you the independence you've longed for since high school, and the close quarters you've been avoiding since your last class field-trip. Thanks to their sparse interiors, dorm rooms offer students a blank slate, a veritable invitation to insert personality and pizzazz. Make sure that you and your future roommate are on the same design page, then read on for a breakdown of how to take your dorm from drab to fab!
Step 1: Choose your bedding wisely...
Let's be honest; if you're not fortunate enough to have a window in your dorm room, the beds will become the main focal point. Aside from sleeping, studying, and skipping class in the sack, it's likely that beds will also provide additional seating and storage. Suffice to say, picking the right bedding is a key move. The patterns, colors, and throw-pillow options are endless, so find a style that speaks to you (and rock it!).
