Being on campus is not all about studies alone. It is also about the way you choose to live. Though campus dorm rooms are always space-challenged, with a little thinking you can make this small space a fun zone.

Dorm decor is not a costly affair. In order to make your dorm room livelier, you can add some colourful dorm bedding to it. Always go for dark shades while choosing your dorm bedding as they can easily hide any coffee spills and other stains. You can even personalise your space by using wall decals that are easy to apply and won’t damage the walls. To get rid of the clutter around your dorm bed, you can opt for storage bins that can prove effective in managing your small space.

No matter how well you know your roommates, there are times when you need your own private space. In order to create your private space in the dorm, you can add some screening around your bed with beaded curtains or even with a printed flat sheet. This will not only add to the decor of your small space but will also help you get some privacy.

Smart and colourful storage bins can be additionally used as platforms for colour coordinated lamp shades and photographic frames to add a decorative touch to your dorm room. One of the easiest ways to give your dorm a spacious feel is by adding mirrors around the space. This is not only a cost effective way of creating the feeling of more space but can also brighten up your dorm room with more light.

Living away from home does not mean that you have to settle. It is a better idea to take charge of your small dorm space and make it reflect your personality with the right selection of dorm decor.
