15 Ways To Make Your Dorm Look Trendy Without Spending A Fortune

One of the best things about going away to college is the opportunity to decorate your dorm room. It’s fun, but it’s also a big responsibility. You want your dorm room to represent all of the best parts of your personality, and while you want it to be unique and maybe a little quirky, there is probably also a part of you that wants it to look ~trendy~ and ~cool.~ Unfortunately, making your dorm room (or just your bedroom) look chic and stylish can sometimes be pretty expensive – the stores that sell the cutest things often come with high price tags.
