You'll be the talk of the dorms if you pimp out your dorm room with these items!

1. Lay the groundwork.

Of course you'll need a great rug to block out those cold dorm floors. Pick something bright and fun! Or maybe something shaggy and soft.

2. Hang art.

Of course you should bring photos of your family and friends, but also make sure to bring some other things to hang that show off your personality. Maybe it's a funny print or a boho wall hanging or a poster of your favorite band. It's even better if there's a story behind it!

3. Play music.

Everyone will want to listen to music in your room if you have a cool wireless speaker to play it on!

4. Have yummy food.

Sure, anyone can order pizza or heat up some ramen. But you can have people over for late night hot dogs cooked right in your dorm-size steamer.

6. Breathe life into your space.

Succulents can help breathe a little life into your space and are also very difficult to kill - a great starter plant for a college student!

Get some extra seating for when people come to hang that can also fold up when you need more space.

10. Refresh.

A lot of colleges ban candles from dorm rooms due to them being a fire hazard, so instead you should refresh the smell of your space with a great home spray - or you can just use your standard Febreze!
