Congratulations! You did it, and you’re off to college. Now it’s time to gather all the essentials and decorate your dorm room to reflect your unique personality. There are a few things that every college student needs for Dorm Room Décor such as; Bedding, Room Accessories, Study and Storage Organization.

Lifestyle expert Julee Ireland, It’s a Glam Thing, shares some of her favorite money-saving dorm room decor products and tips to help you decorate!

1. Target

When it comes to decorating your dorm room, the first thing to consider is your bedding theme, color, and pattern story.  This will be come your surrounding board for your room.  There’s no place like home, but if you have a stylin’ room and a comfortable bed, you are all set! Target has really great dorm room collections this year with a variety of fun patterns, colors, and accessories to match.  What I like best about Target is their pricing!  I found a great dorm room 5-piece bed in a bag set for $34.  You can’t beat that price.  One of the hot trends this season is wall tapestries, and they have accent pillows, rugs, towels, and more to complete your doorm room look!


Available online and in stores nationwide

2. Wall Pops/Nuwallpaper

I love Wall Pops and Nuwallpaper because they provide a great way to personalize and decorate your dorm room walls without damaging them. The have a variety of peel and stick removable decals and wallpaper in an array of eye-catching designs and patterns. I love the dry erase board wall decal dots to help you stay organized and their photo frame decal to create a collage on your wall with photos of your family and friends. They’ve got you covered with patterns and colors to suit everyone’s style and add some flair to your dorm room walls. Prices range from $3.75 and up.

3. Hang-O-Matic

Wall art is like the icing on the cake when it comes to bringing the design of a room together but it’s not easy to hang it right the first time. We’ve all been there, where we thought we measured correctly and went ahead and pounded the nail into the wall only to discover it’s not level and we end up with five holes in the wall when we only needed one! Hang-O-Matic allows you to measure, level, and mark your hole all in one! Now you can hang your artwork perfectly, on your first try, without a hitch! As a designer, I literally never leave home without it and I am telling you this is one of the best inventions since sliced bread! Everyone needs the Hang-O-Matic. It’s a must for at home, designers, the office, and now your college student to create the perfect gallery dorm room wall. Price $14.99
