Decorating Your Dorm Room

Transforming Dorm Rooms: Tips and Ideas for College Students

Are you a college student looking to spruce up your dorm room? Look no further than Florida Tech’s Columbia Village for some inspiration! While the exterior of the dorm complex is stunning, the interior spaces can use a little extra flair. That’s where Cristy Heath, district customer service trainer for Bed Bath & Beyond, comes in.

Heath took on the challenge of decorating a dorm room and common area at Columbia Village to provide students with ideas they can replicate in their own spaces. She understands that for many students, their dorm room is their first opportunity to truly showcase their decorating style without parental input.

Dorm decorating is a big business, with students spending an average of over $900 on decor. However, some students, like Florida Tech junior Lindsay Isaac and graduate student Nicardo Cameron, opt for a more budget-friendly approach by repurposing items from home and collaborating with roommates.

Heath’s tips for dorm room decor include starting with the bed, as it is the focal point of the room. She recommends investing in comfortable bedding and mattress pads to make the standard college bed more inviting. Additionally, maximizing storage space is crucial in a small dorm room, so innovative organization solutions are key.

Whether you’re going for a glamorous look like Heath’s model room or a more neutral palette for the common area, the goal is to create a space that reflects your personal style. Remember, your dorm room is your “me” space, so make it your own!

So, if you’re looking to elevate your dorm room decor game, take some inspiration from Cristy Heath’s stylish designs at Florida Tech’s Columbia Village. Your dorm room can be a reflection of your personality and style, making it a cozy and inviting space to call home during the school year.
