Schools offer dorms for efficiency, not elegance, meaning many lack pizazz. The cramped space, stark walls and dim lighting can make your study spot seem more like prison than home. Avoid dullness and start this school year with style by investing in the following dorm decorating ideas.

Spice up those bland walls with dorm decorating decals. Who ever said stickers were only for kids? Embrace your creativity with a variety of wall stickers aimed toward older customers. Pick any theme from abstract designs to nature-based. Check out spots like Roommates Peel and Stick where most decal prices range between $13 and $25. Blik Wall Decals has a huge variety of stickers and also offers a customize option, where customers create personalized wall art for dorm decorating.
