Back to college: Dorm room decor 101

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  (WOTV)-   At first glance, a dorm room doesn’t exactly scream “personality”  All it needs is a little love and attention and it will become a reflection of your fantastic tastes. Whether you are a first-time college student or sending your own student away to school, follow these tips to make a dorm room your own:

DORM ROOM DECOR 101:

-Know your space.  Before you even start shopping, figure out what you are working with. Is there a bunk bed? Does the dorm come with a refrigerator? Most colleges will provide this info for you.

-Coordination is key.  A dorm room is a shared space. Talk with your roommate to create a palette of colors for your room. You don’t have to match, but coordinating will help the room feel like yours instead of just your half.

-Spice up the walls. Try a collage! Let it give the extra glimmer it needs with a cute lamp.

-Maximize seating.  Don’t forget an extra chair for your friends to come hang out in.
