Moving into a dorm room can be a drastic change from the comforts of home. Make the transition to dorm life easier by adding a few special touches to freshen 

Colorful Bedding
Instantly transform any dorm room with an attractive comforter like the Twin Comforter set shown above. It is bright and cheerful and comes complete with a sham and pillow, and will provide a polished look.    

Wall Decals 
Not sure if you can paint those dreary dorm walls? Wall decals will add character and are easy to apply. Decals can be reused too. Remove them carefully at the end of the year, and you can reuse them in your next dorm room. Zulily has this adorable black chandelier wall decal and four pages of other wall decals here!  

Make the room cozy and friendly by adding a rug. A rug like this gray stealth shag rugwill warm the space and add style and texture. 

Side Table
night table (shown above) with a contemporary and chic silhouette brings fashion-forward design to your dorm room. A Stylishly sweet, photo frame offers a charming way to display a favorite photo while helping to create a comfy and cozy atmosphere. 

Good lighting is a must. A lamp by your desk or for reading in bed is important for the health of your eyes.

Dorm rooms can make you feel claustrophic. Be sure to maximize your space with efficient storage. 

Other elements, such as fairy lights will add warmth and plenty of sparkle to the room too! Get creative and enjoy your new home away from home!
