Even though I have a bachelors degree I have never lived in a dorm room but I do remember when my husband and I got married and moved out on our own for the first time. Decorating your own space is probably the most exciting part. I get that same feeling every time we move homes. Which sounds funny but when you are military it happens a lot. Ha! A whole new space to decorate with new colors, patterns and styles. The hardest part is trying to figure out how you are going to do it on a budget but still make it look cute. It is totally doable. I still decorate on a budget and not because I have to nowadays but because who likes spending retail on something you can make look just as good inexpensively? Not me!
Before I show you all of the DIY goods for decorating I want to share with you a tip. I know looking at dorm rooms can sometimes be a little overwhelming, especially when you are not in an apartment and sharing rooms but actually in a room of cinder block and concrete. Yikes! Have no fear though you just have to get a little creative.
The tip is to always think about storage when bringing in every single piece. Dorm rooms are small and you usually have to share one so there goes half of your space. Storage is essential. Hopefully your bed will have enough space to utilize the room underneath and if it doesn’t go out and buy bed risers right away.
Right now though, we aren’t thinking about storage. We are thinking about making it look super cute and like something you want to live in for the next several months. Check out all these awesome dorm room decor ideas and get your diy on.
