Cute Dorm Room Decorating Ideas

BY: jolene | Jul 17, 2020


College dorm rooms come in all shapes and sizes—not technically, they're all pretty small—but the one thing they all have in common is that they are basic. Like really, really basic. The only things guaranteed to come in a dorm are a bed and a desk. The rest is up to you. But shopping for your new home away from home is part of what makes going away to college so fun and maybe a touch overwhelming. So Groupon Coupons partnered up with The Home Depot to make it easy to visualize how you want your new dorm room to look. We put together a few Pinterest-style mood boards to make shopping for your new space fun and easy. (And bonus—we're going to help you save some money along the way!)
