2. Natural Light
Don’t hide behind those blinds, open them up and let in natural light.
Natural light is one of the best things to have in your dorm room because it can brighten up the space instantly.
Let the sun wake you up in the morning, use the light to warm up your room a bit, and be able to look outside and see how nice it is.
If you still want something covering your window, go for a sheer or light curtain that will still let light in while giving you some privacy.
