No matter how hard institutions try to update the look of their residence halls, there's something about dorm rooms and campus apartments that look...well...dormy. Luckily, with a few simple steps you can re-design your dorm room in short order:
Turn off that ugly fluorescent box that comes standard with the room and try using swag lamps instead. Look for plug-in chandelier and shade styles to get affordable style in a snap. (Safety tip: make sure to get help with electrical any work.)

Is a battered old table lamp included with the room? Perk it up with patterned lamp shades (or just stuff it in storage and start with a new one). Complement it with a throw rug and fun headboard. Who needs boring when bold will do much better?

With your lighting squared away, you can personalize the space a bit. Think textiles to soften, scented candles to kill the scent of ramen wafting through the halls and modern wall mirrors to lighten the look of your room:

At your school dorm (or in rented small spaces in general), even just a few small decor improvements can go a long way.
