It is back to school season. Some of your kids may be entering college for the first time and you are preparing them for dorm life. It can be a stressful time but if you are organized you can make it an exciting experience. Here are some tips to making a tiny dorm room feel a little more like home.

  1. Rearrange the furniture first to find the best layout that is the most functional and gives you the most open space.
  2. Work with your roommate and design your room as a team. Coordinate your bedding and accessories so you don’t have clashing colors.
  3. When buying furniture for the dorm room, choose multifunctional pieces like futons.
  4. Loft the beds to create more space underneath for studying or lounging.
  5. Warm up the floor with a large area rug.
  6. Spice up the walls with decals since you most likely won’t be able to paint the walls. You can also transform your door with decals that you can write on like a whiteboard.
  7. You must have desk organizing accessories to keep a clean space that will inspire you.
  8. Go vertical with storage containers, bins, or baskets so you will have more space to move.
  9. Bring items from your childhood into your new space to make it feel more like home.
  10. Oversized posters can be great for the walls to transform your space from drab to fab.
