Dorm rooms of even well reputed colleges are not maintained well enough. The flooring of these rooms is not that perfectly done and is not at all pleasing to look at. To make it colorful and appealing cover the vacant areas with rugs and carpet squares. Make sure that you use bright colors which will act as a focal point and add warmth to your room. Keep in mind to leave spaces for door swings thus avoiding condensation.

After several hours of studying all you need is a comfortable bed to sleep on that could take away all your tiredness. So make sure that you make your bed fluffier and relaxing. You can even use two mattresses to avoid the hard springs underneath. Use sham and inserts and even pillows to add coziness to your bed. Deploy highly textured fabrics for bedding as they hide dirt and stains. Moreover, you will have to layer your bed according to the seasons.
