Hopefully you want your dorm room to look different than every other student's dorm room on your floor. First off, you'll need some dorm decorations and dorm room accessories, since plain-looking rooms are too generic. All students, it seems, will have a poster or two of their favorite band or celebrity, so take a different approach. Get a unique dorm room rug. Better yet, make it one with a sophisticated yet still eye-catching pattern like this Linx Eco-Friendly Woven College Rug - Empire Yellow & Gray.
Dorm room rugs are examples of cheap college stuff that you'll get years of use from. This rug is made from tightly bound recycled materials; it's durable, and you can even put it outside! But leave it atop that dorm floor where it belongs. You might be surprised how much better a room can look, especially a small dorm room, with a rug for college covering that bare floor. By choosing a cool and intricate design, that plain dorm room will take on a lot of character and unique quality. So don't let your dorm room feel like just some cramped sleeping quarters. Add a dorm rug to your college supplies and make it your home away from home.
