Study Abroad 101: Make Your Dorm Room Seem More Like Home

| 18/03/2014 | 2 Comments

Although in most cases dorm rooms are not something we think of as home, we can go a step further in making it seem more like it than you would imagine. Even if you have to spend a single semester in that place, you would still benefit from making it seem like home, rather than having a bare room that looks like a hospital room. The following tips will give you some pointers on how you can make your dorm room more homey:

  • You should first start thinking about the things you can avoid bringing along, especially if this is your first time leaving home to live away from it. Now its something completely normal to possess a great number of personal belongings as we grow up, but we should focus on the purely practical aspects of the move, rather than personal and sentimental items we could bring with us.

  • You should also focus on the areas you need to work in or rest, such as your bed, study desk, bookcase and so forth. These will and should take priority over all other pieces of furniture you may bring along. The last thing you want is not having a chance to study or rest properly while you’re there. After all, you or your family will be paying a good deal of money for you to study, so certain things will need to be a first above all.

  • You should also focus on proper lighting if you want to ensure you have no trouble with reading and studying inside the dorm. Most dorms have insufficient or poor lighting that may hinder your reading, so you should still get a good desk or task lamp that helps you get some learning done. This will also help keep you from distracting your roommates, assuming you have any.

  • Use some DIY ideas for your temporary space, as this will allow you to spruce up your place as well as make it different and useful. Make sure you don’t go too far with your improvements, as they may become a hindrance instead of help.

  • Add in a new rug or a carpet that ties the place in. You can save up some money to buy something that looks great and it also makes the room more comfortable to live in. If you have some limited seating in the room, then adding a good rug will allow you to use the floor for study, rest and relaxation, assuming you leave your shoes at the door instead of dragging them all over it.

  • Add some seating that suits the overall mood and setting of the room. You can add some easily stored seating such as mats, cushions and poufs without ever having to buy additional chairs or even a couch. Stack them in a corner and use them when you need to. Even if you don’t need to use them too often, they can still sit there for times when you may.
