If you are concerned about your roommate’s color choices, it is best to stick with pale colors for yourself. This way, your space will not feel chaotic. Dress up white linens with interesting pillows. If you and your roommate decide you are interested in some extra design, then apply self-adhesive temporary wallpaper to your walls. This is a great way to add your own flair to your new home.
Rather than going out and buying the first footrest you can find, purchase one with storage underneath. That way, you can neatly store extra blankets or pillows, but you will also have room for your feet to rest. Desk storage is also very important. Keep in mind that a desk is not simply a place to set everything down upon entering a room—in fact, doing so can make your room look very cluttered.

Storage cannot be stressed enough. Having bins, containers, and files helps keep you organized in the small space you have. Organization means less clutter, and less clutter means that people will actually WANT to spend time in your small, shared space.
With school just around the corner, the next few posts will be devoted to tips on how to make a dorm room shine to its utmost potential. First: the setup of dorm furniture when you first get the keys to your room is generally not the most organized setup. Rearrange the furniture to make your space look larger (it’s possible!) and more inviting. Even a small gesture like moving one bed horizontally against a wall and adding decorative pillows invites it to be used as a couch for lounging friends.
While designing rooms for children, be sure and choose a color palette that can be easily adjusted as the child ages. Although a young girl may be extremely passionate about bright purple, it is quite likely that by next week she will be more interested in the color orange. Choose a color that will allow linens and accessories to adapt as the child does.
Before purchasing an expensive piece of furniture with an interesting color, look for a similar piece of furniture at local consignment stores or thrift stores. It is quite common to find timeless styles in these places—for an awfully affordable price. Then go out and purchase high-gloss spray-paint. Your colorful piece will turn out great, at a fraction of the cost.
Trays are an excellent way of organizing a space without much effort. Place a tray on top of an ottoman to serve as both a holder for drinks/food, but also store remote controls or magazines. Place a different tray on your vanity to hold all toiletries. Colored trays give you an opportunity to hold true to whatever color scheme you have already begun in a room.
