Your white walls are poorly patched. There's a crusty stain on the carpet. You live in a sea of beige with all wood furniture straight out of the '70s. You feel like you're living in a closet. Dorm life may have you feeling a little more than homesick for your cushy room back in the 'burbs. But before you get together your transfer papers, Money College has a few dorm ideas from an interior designer that will transform your room and hopefully, your state-of-mind.

Sharon Kreighbaum runs Staged Makeovers where she does interior designing and staging, which she described as using what people already have and re-designing the space. Her staging know-how made her perfect to offer readers five dorm ideas. Kreighbaum based her dorm ideas off of a room that she staged and re-decorated at Ohio's Miami University.
