9 Ways to Redecorate Your Dorm for the New Year ...


Ringing into the New Year means adopting resolutions that will assist in improving your lifestyle, but here are some ways to redecorate your dorm to improve the space around you, too!

Too often we overlook our apartments, rooms, or dorms when entering the New Year because we’re so focused on those new "I’m going to the gym every day!" or "I’m never eating a piece of chocolate again!" promises.

This New Year, adopt some of these ways to redecorate your dorm and feel refreshed from the inside out!

1. De-Clutter Your Closet

De-Clutter Your Closet

One of the most life-changing ways to redecorate your dorm is to first de-clutter your closet!

This means going through everything and organizing your closet as though you were just moving in.2

Don’t be afraid or shy away from throwing some things away.2

If you know that you will never wear that shirt again, give it to someone, donate it, or throw it out.

This is a great life lesson for the New Year: learning how to be honest with yourself and say NO.

2. Move Your Furniture around

If your bed was near the window, switch sides with your roommate.

If your desk was facing a wall, move it to fit as a corner piece in the room.

Basically take this opportunity of entering a new year to make some changes, after speaking with your roommate about the changes of course!

In my freshman year of college, both of my roommates and I changed our room 2 times during the second semester and we felt much better about the changes because we felt fresh!

3. Add Another Mirror

Add Another Mirror

Adding mirrors opens up a room – it’s great feng shui!

Target is the best place to visit to achieve this goal.

There is a great selection of mirrors in all shapes and sizes that will look great in any room.

I loved keeping mirrors on the back of the door, above my bed, and on top of the mini fridge in the room.
