When it comes to decorating your dorm room, it can be a tough challenge if it's not exactly endearing; you also may not have a lot of space to work with!

However, it can be a fun challenge and you can actually add a hint of your own personality and style to it if you have the right student bedroom essentials that help make it feel like home.

At Clintons’, we’ve put together a list of our favourite dorm room decor ideas to help you turn the space into something that’s truly yours!

Let’s take a look at some of the creative dorm room ideas to help you get started with your school year.

1. Fancy Cushions

The one spot in the dorm room that’s truly yours is your bed, meaning you have the liberty to go all out!

Why not go for fancy blankets and colourful throw pillows like our ‘Home is where mum is’ cushion or the ‘Me to you’ cushion to add a hint of personality and pop of colour to your room?

Not only is it an affordable option but also an excellent way to add instant fun to the room without overpowering the other decor items. If you want to personalise the spot even more, then you could perhaps place a few figurines on your bedside table.

For those days when you have to prepare for your exams, the one thing that’s going to keep you awake all night is tonnes of coffee or hot chocolate drinks - for that you certainly need a mug.

However, instead of going for the regular ones, why not choose from our collection of mugs and drinkware?

For instance, you could either purchase our Wendy Jones graduation mug or go for something simple like our Mr Perfect mug. Or else, you could also get it personalised with your name on it - the best way to let your roommates know what’s yours!

4. Canvases

Your dorm room can feel stark and cold; after all, nothing can compare to the feeling you get when you’re at home.

That said, why not brighten up the room a little by gathering all those memorable photos you took on your last family trip, making a beautiful canvas out of it and hanging it on your wall?

Perhaps you could use some of the images to clip them with fairy light and then place that over the wall.

Either way, it’s one of the most creative dorm room decor ideas and the best way to remember those good ol’ days you spent with your friends and family members.

5. Photo Frames

You could choose between our black floating 8x10” or silver floating 4x4” photo frame based on the size of your photograph. Perhaps, you could also go for our silver mirror bead frame and add your parents' photo to it.

It doesn’t matter which photo frame you choose, these are the best way to decorate the desk area in your room while keeping your special memory near.
