Where to find the best dorm decor
If there’s one thing I learned about being in college and living on campus, having a lackluster bedroom can make you feel like you’re in a jail cell. The paint on the walls isn’t the prettiest color, and it can look cold and dreary if it’s not decorated to make you feel at home. That being said, in four and a half years of being a student, I’ve done a lot of shopping and finding the best places for bedroom decor.
First up is HomeGoods. I found so many things here to decorate my room. I mainly use it for bedding, pillows and blankets, but have also found it for wall decor. Bedding can be extremely expensive, but they have name brands at a discount, and they also have bedding to fit any vibe you’re looking for.
The next place is TJMAXX. To make this even better, we now have one in Stephenville that is fully stocked. This is where I also buy bedding, kitchen decor, and fun little accessories to add to my bedroom. Everything is so cheap and you can shop here with any budget to get what you need to make your room more comfortable.
Hobby Lobby, another newly added store in Stephenville, is the best for all things wall decor. They have bi-weekly sales where things are 40-50% off, so as long as you go on a week when wall decor is on sale, you can get what you pay for. Not to mention that all of the wall decor is super high quality and will last you through college for as long as you want to keep them. They have designs for every person’s aesthetic. This includes flowers, quotes, random paintings, and anything else you could think of. You may not even know what you want your room to look like, but one look around Hobby Lobby and you’ll get it all.
Shopping to decorate your college dorm can be stressful, but these three stores can help ease some burdens. They are super easy to shop for and are always super organized. Remember, get things that will make your bedroom feel like home.
