Everyone knows the best part of moving is decorating.

Moving away to college is exciting, scary, and of course, a lot of work. But all that elbow grease really pays off, especially when it comes to dorm decor. 

You want to make the most of those four cement walls, as it will be your home for the next few months, at least. The sooner you start shopping, the more options you’ll have which will cut your stress level in half.

Dorms are meant to show off your personality and your style, so ditch the cliche Kurt Cobain smoking a cigarette or Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s posters for something more unique, like what we have listed here!
