Have you sufficiently decorated every square inch of your dorm room? What about the door? And I mean the outside and the inside. Yup. I thought that there might be an area that you were forgetting.
There are a lot of rules about what you can’t do to your college dorm room, but dorm doors are normally the space people encourage you to decorate. RAs often coax freshman to decorate their doors to showcase their personalities and interests. Sometimes, there’s even a prize for who has the best door.
That shouldn’t make you feel the pressure. At the end of the day, it’ll about having fun and showing who you are, like I previously mentioned. Even though the focus is often on the outside of the door, I urge you to decorate the inside, too. When you see these 17 adorable designs, you’ll be glad you have two sides of a door to jazz up.
1. Window and Flower Basket Dorm Door Decoration
This is so clever and cute. And it makes use of that stash of construction paper I know you have.
2. Multicolored Floral Garland Dorm Door Decoration
Most schools allow you to decorate your dorm doors. If yours doesn’t, you could decorate the frame of the door with a garland.
3. 3D Flowers Dorm Door Decoration
I wish I had more doors so I could do this all over. Doing the three-dimensional centers is soooooo worth the bit of extra effort.
4. Friends Photos Dorm Door Decoration
A full-length mirror is so helpful when deciding on your outfit. What makes this one special is it’s surrounded by photos of friends and has the Friends logo on the mirror.
5. Bow Dorm Door Decoration
Why should presents be limited to Christmas and birthdays? Feel like you’re “unwrapping” a present every time you enter your dorm.
6. Llama Dorm Door Decoration
You’ll be the envy of your floor if you have something this cute hanging from your door.

Because everything is better with polka dots. The white gives a clean feeling which is very welcome in dorms.

12. Washi Tape Triangles Dorm Door Decoration
It’s Washi Tape to the rescue again! If you can’t find Washi Tape, you could use construction paper and a zero transfer tape that won’t peel the paint off your door.
13. Hearts Dorm Door Decoration
I really do heart this. The placement of the little hearts makes it even better.

This isn’t even on its door and I already want it. It will help your roommates and floormates keep track of where you are without the need to text you.
