Walking into a drab dorm room, with its cold cinder block walls and concrete floors, can be daunting for someone who just left home for the first time. It’s not always easy to see the design potential and envision this space as home right away. While posters and a mini-fridge can help breathe life into a dorm room, they don’t add any warmth.
To remedy this, we’re sharing our favorite cozy enhancements to help transform a dorm room into a warm and inviting space! And here’s the good news for you, parents — you don’t need to spend a ton of money to cozify your kid’s dorm room. A few small, inexpensive touches — a soft throw blanket for chilly fall nights, some colorful plants, and a furry throw rug — can really perk up a dull dorm room and make it feel like home.
