Whether you’re excited or a little bit nervous, starting college is a totally new experience. A homey, personalized dorm room is the perfect way to ease that transition. But maybe you can’t afford the tricked out MTV Cribs-style rooms you’ve seen all over Instagram. Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered with super easy and low-cost ways to make your space your own!
One of the best ways to take advantage of a tiny dorm room is to find out if your school’s residential offices will loft your bed. A lofted bed frees up floor space for additional storage and will make your room feel larger.
Geometric decor is totally in right now, and extra storage space is a must in a cramped dorm room, especially when massive shelving units are not in the budget. Dress up your walls with a variety of different shapes for easily storing books, jewelry, makeup, or small trinkets.
