Decorating my dorm room was one of my favorite parts of moving in! It can be difficult squeezing all of your belongings into such a small area, but it is possible! This is my second year living in the dorms and I have found what works best for me in the small space. I think it is important to make your room as comfortable as possible, as you will be living there for about nine months. I would suggest bringing plenty of pictures, a cozy blanket, your favorite quotes/ images/ posters, and maybe a rug if your room isn’t carpeted. I have found those large plastic three-drawer organizers very useful because they can hold a lot of things and are easily able to be tucked away. I even put some colored paper in front of the clear part of the drawers to give it some personalization!
Here is a list of things that I think are important for anyone living in small space:
-Command Hooks: actual hooks and the velcro ones!
-Push pins (for a bulletin board if your room has one)
-A three-drawer organizer
-An ottoman (the hollow ones can hold so many things and they make for a great foot rest!)
-Plenty of picture frames with pictures of friends and family
-Pillows, pillows, pillows!
-Bins (bins and containers of all shapes, sizes and colors are wonderful for holding things such as: lotions, paper/ notebooks, snacks, stationery, etc!)
Below are a few pictures of my drawer organizer, bins, and entire room!
