Whether you would like to go for a man cave style or dreamy feminine dorm, decorating a room can be quite costly. With all the expenses students have, decorating your room might take some planning, discipline, and out-of-the-box thinking.

There are some DIY projects that you can undertake and more affordable online stores that might sell items you’ll need for the project. This all seems complicated and time-consuming. How can this be done easily and conveniently? Here are ten ideas to decorate a college or university dorm for students.

Recycle scrap items
Scrap materials can go a long way when decorating a college room. Some students have scored the lottery in dumpsters and landfills by finding items such as neon lights and signs they can use. Alternatively, there are other decorative elements that students can find and recycle either at landfills or directly from people disposing of their old things away.

Go green
Going green by having a lot of plants in your college room can make the room seem more beautiful and decorated. At the same time, the space will feel much cleaner and botanical if that is the look you are going for. You can buy or even make your own pot plants at a very affordable price.

Start a simple DIY project
Instead of buying everything you need at college with indoor interior design elements, consider having small DIY projects to save some money for more important things. As a student, you might need an essay writing service. You can easily find help by using a professional personal statement writer service and, in this regard, Ca. EduBirdie ranks as one of the best in that field. The best part is that this statement writer service is not very costly so you can share costs between decorating your room and boosting your academic performance. This personal statement writer service personalizes the work it does for you to suit your preference and vision of that assignment they are handling.

Print photos for your wall
Empty walls can make a room feel like it is no man’s land. One of the best ways to decorate a room with a small budget is by printing photos, framing them, and hanging the frames on the wall. Alternatively, you can even use canvas print photos if you’ve got a little more money to spend.

Get area rugs
Depending on the style of your room and the taste you are going for, getting area rugs can make a major difference in decorating a dorm. There are different designs and patterns to choose from, including fluffy, Arabic, and even custom-designed rugs hand-crafted for you.
