Getting ready for college..part 1 ..Decorate that Dorm Room

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Our precious children leaving the nest to venture onto college campuses across the country. What an exciting time for them. I have sent two of my three children to college so fat, and I have learned a few  things along the way to make their home away from home as cozy and functional as possible. Thought I would share some of my favorite finds with you.
The bedding is very important. They will spend a lot of down time sitting on their beds or snuggled under the sheets. There needs to be a durable comforter or duvet cover to withstand the constant flopping on it.
 I highly recommend PBTeenbedding. I have purchased it for both children and the comforter and
duvet held up for all four years. They are running a big sale this week. The sheets are the best also

They are soft and durable.

These are 3x5 flags from Amazon. The flags, in whatever style you like, are a great way to cover a window with just a few tacks. Also they cover a lot of barren wall space easily. They are light and easy to hang on a cement wall with double face tape.

The beds in the dorms are not the most comfortable. I highly recommend using a topper. Bed bath and Beyond. They offer the variety and range in prices to give you many options. 

Organization is key with these small dorm quarters. This modular cubby system is from Target the canvas boxes cone in a varity of colors for both guys and girls. Different shaped boxes for different storage needs. Comes in a few stains depending on your taste. Holds up well.

If there is a closet, taking the doors off temporarily helps to gain access to the clothing. Adding organization inside the closet helps a lot. 

This bed received a fabric headboard and some personal details. Lots of pillows on the bed help to add comfort. Love the body pillow. Target has the, and also has covers in different fabrics. Enjoy decorating your dorm room with your student. With alittle thought it will be comfy and cozy and functional.
