For your desk: Invest in an accordion folder. Trust me, finding important papers will be much easier. Since space is so limited in dorms, find multi-functional items such as a desk organizer lamp. They are ideal and can hold as many items as you want.
Now that you’ve organized your dorm, it’s time to decorate! All I have to say are three words: lighting, lighting, and more lighting, because dorm lighting is horrible. Overhead florescent lights just don’t get the job done, but a sleek floor lamp, pendant lamps or a desk lamp give you great results.
Carpeting: Some dorms may have carpeting already, but to jazz it up and make it your own. Pick out a cute little rug and place it anywhere you want to add personality.
Seating: You’ll probably have guests in your room, so to make their visit comfortable and relaxing aim for a little couch and pair it with a few decorative pillows.
Final Touches: Since we’re heading towards the cold season, place flameless, battery-operated candles all over your dorm. These candles are an extreme must-have because they mimic a real candle without the fire; they are also scented and come in different scents such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice even mom’s apple pie! These aromas will make the environment in your room very cozy and pleasant.
