College Poster...
Spiced Up Dorm Decorating

College poster and vinyl wall decals help spice up the dorm decorating

College dorms are perfect places to try out your decorating skills.

  • Of course, you can't choose your own furniture.
  • And of course, you cannot damage the walls.
  • And yes, of course, they are typically small spaces shared with another
  • and need to cram,err...hold all your possessions for the next few years.

Okay, so they are probably NOT perfect places to try out your decorating skills.

And yet, if you can show off your decorating skills here, you can do it just about anywhere. Right?

Right.



Besides, this small space can be your personal blank canvas. And you can make as many decorating mistakes as you want...and put it down to "finding your own style".

1. Sports, Music, Fashion, College Humor and other College Poster

The easiest way since time immemorial is putting up teen posters. However, instead of simply sticking them up with tape or glue, give them a snazzier look by putting them in frames.

Color the frames in one of the colors from your bedding. Now the wall looks neat and changing the posters is a snap too.

Want it even easier? Washi tape makes for great frames in different colors and patterns.

2. Vinyl Wall Decals, Stickers, Borders and Murals



Dormify Gift Card - $50

Don't want the hassle of putting up hooks (stick on ones, of course) and buying frames for college posters?

Then removable vinyl wall decals are your answer. Everything from flowers to sports figures; from Iron Man to Barbie; from colorful dots to black silhouettes can be found here.

You can even customize by turning your own photo into a wall decal!!

3. Quotations - Inspiring College Poster



Some Days Box Sign

Get inspired every time you enter your room.

Add a quotation to your dorm decorating.

Quotes can be in the form of an art print, tin or wood signs, or wall decals.

4. Name in Wooden Letters

Okay, so this is very popular at homes, where everyone already knows your name and your room.

Makes sense to have it in the dorm room too. Hang wooden letters to spell out your name or your initials; or get removable wall decals customized to your name.

If you are the D-I-Y kind of person, head on to Michaels, buy a wooden plaque and do the honors yourself.

5. Chalkboard and Dry Erase Wall Decals

College life is a rush of activities – classes, tests (ugh!!), parties (yayy!), dates (ahem!). Black & White Chalkboard or Dry Erase Boards will ensure you can note down the details even as you run out the door.

They even come in such fancy designs; they are eye candy when not being used too.

6. Peel and Stick Mirrors

This one is mainly for the girls. Peel and stick mirrors work better than a college poster in sprucing up a girl's room.

Without damaging the walls, you get beautiful art on the walls, since they come in many shapes – butterflies, flowers, stars and more. And the functionality of multiple mirrors in your room!

7. Have you heard of Wall Pockets?

Not interested in wall art prints?

You must have heard of wall decals that look like picture frames, wherein you can stick your favorite photos on; but have you seen these Pink & Orange Wall Pocket Decals?

Created in eye-catching designs, you can fold them to create pockets to hold light, flat objects such as movie tickets, CDs, Valentine cards...
