It's college move-in day. You unlock the door to your assigned dorm room and stare in awe. This looks nothing like "Zoey 101."

Immediately after finding out which hall I was assigned to for my freshman year of college, I went straight to YouTube to search up "Hatch Hall Dorm Room Tour." After getting an insight into what my home for the next 10 months looked like, I logged onto Pinterest to find ways to spice up a plain and bland dorm room. A-Ha! I've found the goldmine.

Suddenly, my Pinterest feed is overflowing with inspiration. I decided to dedicate a whole Pinterest board to my future college dorm makeover. Here, I've included some of my favorite decor items that I think will make any dorm room feel more like home and a bit more welcoming. Along with listing these tried and true decor items, I've included various stores that have these items for sale with varying prices. So here's to decorating a 130-ish sqft room! Oh, and don't forget shower shoes.
