College Décor Dos and Don’ts
Before you start shopping for your dorm décor, it’s always a good idea to check and see what you can and can’t do. For example, some college dorms and apartments won’t let you paint or put nails in the walls. Even if that’s the case, however, you can still get by with tape, poster putty, or wall hangers that won’t cause damage when you take them down at the end of the year. Another décor don’t? Don’t overdo it. College dorm rooms and apartments are small and can easily become cluttered. The key to excellent dorm room décor is simplicity - a few great pieces go a long way. A décor do? Plan some of your decorating ideas in advance, but don’t buy everything at once. Bring the essentials but give yourself time to get used to your new space and discover your new personal style!
