Graduation season is here, and do you know what that means? High school graduates will be off to their chosen college at the end of the summer. So it’s time to start planning your dorm room décor. We have begun to see a trend in upscale dorm rooms, and Fabrics Unlimited has some great ideas and inspiration that won’t break your bank. When working with a small space such as a dorm room you have to take a few things into consideration your budget, your layout, and your style.
Maximize your Layout:
Functionality is key when planning the layout of your room. When your space is small you have to avoid the risk of overcrowding and over doing. Maximize your layout by getting your furniture higher off the floor. Raised beds will provide more storage space underneath the beds, or a lofted bed can provide more floor space. Another way to maximize your space is by using storage ottomans or something similar, these ottomans can be dual purposed and used for seating or step stools.
Coordinate with Style:
In most dorm room situations you are sharing a small space with another person. So you will want to create a look that coordinates to avoid clashing. One way to do this is to create your own fabric covered headboards using a bright vibrant pattern. This way your headboard will be multi-functional and play as artwork as well. Opt for solid colors that tie in with the headboard when choosing your bedding, this way each person can have a look that suits them. This will help make the space functional without being overwhelming.
Wall decals, lamps, pillows, rugs, monograms, and memorabilia are some other ways to make your doom room truly yours. These small accessories are usually cost efficient and do not take up much space, they can also be moved or changed to create a new look.
Fabrics Unlimited provides a wide selection of fabrics for headboards, bedding, and pillows. We also have rugs, art work and accessories to give your future dorm room a look you can’t resist. On staff designers are here to help you coordinate fabric and create your dorm room dream.
