The standard desk, chair, bed, and bookshelf that come standard in most college dorm rooms are anything but unique but it’s easy to inject personality into a room with a few key pieces. Rather than waiting to see what’s available locally, now is a great time to coordinate with a roommate and shop online for items that will make a dorm room feel a bit more like home.
One item that can really pull a room together is a great area rug. In college I had a plush tan one that went well with my floral comforter and my roommate’s forest green one that was procured once I got to school. It was one that held up well during my four years and was neutral enough so I never really got tired of it but it was just sort of blah.
If I were to do it again, I’d switch it up and go with a comforter that complimented a colorful rug with bold patterns that would better camouflage years of wear and tear and give my room a trendy look.
