Tips for Dorm Room Decorating

Dorm Room Decorating
When decorating your dorm room there are a few things to keep in mind. Make sure you’re having fun, get creative, and let your personality show through!

Times have changed since I graduated college ten years ago. However I recently helped my younger cousin move into her dorm at the University of Cincinnati. We decorated her walls together.

Whenever I decorate any room, I like to start by drawing a template. My cousin and I drew a little sketch of her room before we started. We positioned her bed and desk first because we were unable to use the wall space above them. Next we drew the areas that we wanted to decorate and decided what to put in these areas.

Most young adults going off to college are on a tight budget. The money they do have they’re trying to save that for food and fun activities, not room decorations. One inexpensive way to decorate your walls is with posters, either by themselves or in frames. This is what we did for my cousin. My cousin loves art, animals, and music so when we went to posterservice.com we shopped mainly in the art and music categories.

Since dorm rooms can be small, plain, and often have little to no natural light, we wanted to stick with colorful posters. An important interior design tip for decorating walls is to hang things in odd numbers, never even numbers. So on her smallest wall we chose 3 posters and hung them in a “V” shape. We called this “Marc’s Wall” because we only used posters by Marc Allante.

On the left of the wall, we hung up the poster titled “Chai” by Allante. In the middle bottom of the “V” shape, we used the poster “Two Step”, and on the right we hung “A Portrait of Hong Kong”. Some other great posters that are colorful and also very popular are Lion Rasta, Circulation, Melody of the Night and one of my favorites Let That Sh*t Go.

My cousin has an old soul and is a fan of classic rock music, so on Bob Marley Guitar one of her other walls we did a music theme. It was hard for us to narrow down our choices because Posterservice has such a great selection of music posters! We ended up going with Pink Floyd Masse, Grateful Dead – Golden Road, and Grateful Dead – Summer Tour in one area. We also used our black corrugated poster frame to hang The Beatles Yellow Submarine. My cousin also loves Bob Marley, so right above her bed we put a popular poster titled “Bob Marley Guitar”.

The final poster we hung in her dorm room was on her door. We decided for this spot to use one of her favorites, Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. Once we were finished with her room, it went from looking like a prison cell to a comfortable, inviting, and fun living space!

Our Kurt Cobain Obsession

Kurt Cobain Obsession

It’s no surprise that as a poster company, our sister company, Posterservice, has a wide range of variety when it comes to posters. We love everything from fine art prints to goofy humor posters. Quite possibly our most popular type of poster is our music section. There are so many genres of music that it makes it really easy for us to get the posters that our customers are looking for. If you’re perusing our selection you may see a bit of obsession emerging…. We love Kurt Cobain and Nirvana posters.

As of right now we have a total of 11 active posters that involve Cobain, and one on the way to our warehouse to become a best selling hit!

For those that don’t know, this year is the year for documentaries about Kurt Cobain. The first, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck came out back in late March. This documentary took a unsympathetic approach to the life and death of one of the most well known rock stars. The second documentary is actually more of a “docu-drama” and made its debut to the screen yesterday, June 11th. This particular documentary is entitled Soaked In Bleach is more of a dramatized exploration into the death of Cobain.

These two documentaries are on our employees list of must-sees but to hold everyone over until they can see the films we’re here to share some of our Kurt Cobain/Nirvana posters to get us all in the rocking mood.
