Decorating a Dorm Room

Summer went by fast and school is about to start! Before you send any kids off to college, make sure they have everything they need for their room. The dorm is their new room and they need to love it! With the small space, you may be thinking that it’s difficult to decorate, but with a little help it’s not that hard! First you need bedding, which will most likely be the biggest thing in the room the most important. The colors in the bedding will determine the color scheme for the rest of the room. The next thing you need to think about is storage. With the space being tight, storage is very important. Think about different storage systems that will fit in the space, and organize as much as possible. A desk is very important, so find one that fits in the room with lots of drawers and space for a laptop and school work. After organization comes the fun part: the decorating! Use the wall space to hang curtains, put up pictures, bulletin boards, and other decorations that go along with your color scheme. After that, the room should be ready!
