The Do’s and Don’ts of Dorm Room Décor

Dorm rooms usually turn out to be of small size. It is also possible that you share the room with another person. This makes choosing the right dorm room décor a serious challenge for you. Because of sharing, it pays to have a char with your roommate before you embark on implementing any décor. This is because chances that your roommate will not approve of your choice of décor are high. Below are just some of the do’s and don’ts that you need to take care of when considering a décor.


It is never a good idea to embark on shopping for décor even before you set foot in your dorm room. It pays to have a look at the room first and have a chat with your roommate about the most appropriate décor you both prefer. It is also not a good idea to over-purchase since the room is small and your roommate will also bring in other items.


The fact that your dorm room is small requires that you only pack the essentials. Only pack clothes that you will need during your stay and leave the rest at home.

Matching Look

One serious mistake that most dorm roommates commit is to have matching items in their room. This serves nothing when it comes to dorm room décor. You need to consider what both of you bring into the room so as to create some contrast. Doing so can indeed make your small dorm room colorful and lively to be in.


It is in your dorm room where you can make effective use of artwork. Indeed artwork is most appropriate in the room considering that college authorities will not allow you to undertake any painting. It pays to consult your roommate on the best wallpapers to invest in.

These are no doubt just a few of the do’s and don’ts of dorm room décor you need to keep in mind to make staying in your dorm room lively.
