Six Affordable Ways to Liven Up Your College Room

Brought to You by our Partners at Target

Decorating your room in college is exciting. You’ve got a blank canvas to show off your personality and turn your space into the go-to hangout spot among your friends. The problem? Budgets are tight! That’s why Target pulled together this list of affordable ways to liven up your space.

1. Brighten up your room with a decorative mirror.

Whether your room is dressed to the nines with sports memorabilia or it radiates all things glitz and glamour, adding a mirror will never look out of place. Not completely sold, yet? Mirrors can actually create the illusion of a larger space, and they reflect light to help brighten surroundings. How’s that for an affordable way to liven up your room? Shop decorative mirrors from $29.99.

 

 

2. Turn a plain bed setting into a work of art with throw pillows. 

If you ask us, you can never have too many pillows. We know how important those quick power naps are in between classes—but besides providing some much-appreciated comfort, throw pillows are a cost-friendly way to achieve that straight-off-of-Pinterest aesthetic. Stay on budget with throw pillows from $19.99.

 

 

3. Personalize your décor by hanging photographs.

For a look that can’t be duplicated, how about hanging up some of your favorite photographs? It’s more than just a trip down memory lane, it’s décor that’s unique to you. You can get pretty creative with the way you display your pictures as well—such as designing a gallery wall, mixing and matching different frames, or creating a collage. Get started with frames from $9.99.

4. Add a touch of personality with a wall decal.

Why have solid-colored walls when you can spice them up a bit? Wall decals are easy to use and totally temporary, so you don’t have to worry about any hard labor or pesky room fines. We’re big fans of the classic inspirational quote adorned above the bed, but you also can’t go wrong creating a perfectly patterned accent wall instead. The choice is yours! Find inspiration with these wall decals from $4.99.

 

 

5. Bring “life” to your space with an artificial plant. 

Since we’re speaking of ways to liven up your dorm, how about actually adding some life to it? Okay, artificial plants might not really be alive—but you get the point. A little bit of greenery may just be the perfect pop of color you need in your room—and it’s the official Pantone Color of the Year! Look now for artificial plants from $7.99.

6. Build your bed into the ultimate accessory with a “Bed in a Bag” set.

Think of your bedding as a must-have accessory. Just like how the perfect pair of shoes can pull an outfit together, the right bed setting is the final touch that completes your room’s look. Start building your perfect bed with bedding sets under $50.
