    Dorm Decor Essentials

    Have you just graduated high school and find yourself now preparing to go back to school in the fall? If you will be staying on campus in a dorm room or a campus apartment, you will find that they provide you a bed and a desk and little else.

    So we wanted to make it easy for you to find everything you need to decorate your dorm room or campus apartment, from Twin XL Dorm Room Bedding, to shabby chic shower curtains; from room darkening and blackout window curtains to soft sherpa throw blankets; from decorative throw pillows to stylish furniture protectors.

    Before you get started with making your dorm decor choices, check out our Dorm Room Checklist. We also encourage you to read this guest blog we posted titled "Everything You Need To Know About Decorating Your College Dorm Room" for more tips and advice. 

    When you're ready to start purchasing your dorm room decor, decide first whether you want to get items that match perfectly in a collection, or if you would prefer to have items that complement each other but don't match exactly. At Lush Decor, you can find curtains, bedding, throws, shower curtains and more in matching collections such as Serena, Reyna, Stripe, Sausage Dog, and others. You can also find plenty of items that have subtle designs or simple solid colors, with or without embellishments, to create a coordinated look that doesn't exactly match but looks great together.

    Don't forget you will also need some additional items like wall art, mirrors, and other items to complete your dorm room and make it feel more like home. To help you stay on budget, you can find most of those items at your local thrift store.

    We have great options for men and women who are heading off to college. From fancy and frilly comforters like Belle, Serena and Reyna for a more glam look, to more gender neutral stripe patterns like Boho Stripe and Hena Stripe for a more calming look.

    The standard size for the bed in a college dorm is Twin XL. So your best bet for a quilt or comforter set to fit perfectly is Twin XL bedding. You can also get away with using a full/queen size quilt or comforter, which will offer a nice overhang.

    Lush Decor also offers an annual Back To School Dorm Decor Scholarship, which we offer to two students who are attending college, whether they are in undergraduate or graduate school. It's a small way we can give back to the community. Be sure to apply before the deadline.
