Decorating your dorm is so exciting because you get to create your own little space! At the same time, it’s overwhelming because you have to figure out your aesthetic, what you want and where to buy it all without spending a ton of money!
Look no further, here are some great places that’ll help you create the cutest dorm no matter what your style is!
Urban isn’t the cheapest place when you think about it but they have cute tapestries to hang on your wall that aren’t too pricey and a good selection of Twin XL bedding which can be really hard to find. If you like indie, boho vibes then take a look at Urban for some personal style, accent pieces.
Dormify is awesome because you can buy everything for your room to match a certain theme. That’s right they sell stuff separately or in a collection. The prices aren’t terrible but they aren’t the cheapest. Check out Dormify for style specific accents to add to your room.
TJ Maxx has great decorations and bedding during August and September when school starts. You can find the cutest accessories and high-quality bedding for cheaper prices there!
