sending kids off to college. To start, your student should talk to his or her new roommate about the necessities (fridge, microwave, TV, etc.) and decor. Find out what colors they both like and discuss how to decorate their shared room. Next, select the bedding, which will set the tone for the room.
As for the details, lightweight canvas art, posters, and wall decals are ideal for covering plain dorm walls that you can't paint or put holes in. Area rugs warm up cold tile floors or add color to bland carpeting. Decorative pillows add color to the space, too. Lastly, ward off homesickness by finishing the room with keepsakes from home, such as framed photos.
