15 Amazing Dorm Room Pictures That Will Make You Excited For College

I’ve never thought of dorm rooms as particularly appealing… until I started looking at these pictures. Some of these dorm rooms are gorgeous! It actually makes me want to go back in time so that I can live at college and decorate my own tiny space just like these.

While some of these dorms are obviously spacious and may be found in more expensive universities, that doesn’t mean that a small dorm room in a not-as-nice college can’t be decorated to look just as amazing. Let these pictures inspire you. These students are seriously creative – borrow from their ideas to make your college living space as nice as possible. Here are 15 awesome dorm room pictures that will make you excited for September:

 

1. Put sheer shades over your windows and decorate with strings of lights, window decals, and pretty bottles and vases.

2. To save space, put shelves or a dresser behind your bed. It can also act as a headboard and make your bed look less boring. Initials on the walls and pretty lights around your bed are also really nice touches.

3. If you and your roomie are on the same page, you can coordinate with colors and patterns for a really nice stream-lined look.

4. Create a loft type space by moving your bunk beds around like so. Securely hang a hammock for a boho vibe. The lights are really pretty too!

5. If you’re stuck in the lower bunk, make it more appealing by hanging lights from the bottom of the top bed.

6. To maximize space and make your room look cozier, put a small couch or futon under the top bunk. This is also good for guests.
