With the semester fast approaching, many young people will be heading off to college soon. Moving to a new dorm is an exciting experience that can also be a little daunting. Here are some tips for making your dorm room feel a little more homely.
Surround yourself with pictures that make you smile. Hang photos of your best friends, your family, your dog – anything that reminds you of home.
Adding plants makes any space feel a little more homey. If you are worried you won’t be home much, opt for succulents as they require minimal attention and still look doarable.
Create a Study Space
You’ll have many nights in your room writing essays, frantically reading, and preparing for exams. Create a comfortable study area where you go to work and avoid working in bed if you can. This will help you switch off when you are not doing college work.
Colorful storage spaces like drawers and baskets can make a dorm room feel much more homey and vibrant. Grab a brightly colored laundry basket to make laundry seem like less of a chore.
Grab a bedside lamp with dim light setting to create a cozy atmosphere in the evenings. Candles also add a homely vibe to a living space.
