No one wants the hassle of arguments over dorm room décor. Of course you can have lines of demarcation and simply split the space and decorate individually, with no reference to each other’s likes and dislikes. Or, you can agree on what to do. There are benefits in having a harmonious dorm room in more ways than one.
1. Respect Communal Areas
One of the best tips for decorating a shared dorm room is to respect the neutral vibe of the important communal areas. You may both have quite vibrant and distinct styles, but make sure there is even just a single part of the room that is representative of a calmer, more impartial atmosphere. Having an area or two like this will create a sort of middle ground that balances out both your and your roommate’s style.
