Back to school is quickly approaching. If you are a first year student who will be living in a dorm, you are in for one of the most memorable years of your life. When I lived in a dorm my first year of college I had no idea what to expect. I was stuck in a triple residence hall, which is the smallest living accommodation my university offers. Over the course of the year I certainly learned how to make the most of new home by adding personal touches to the bare walls, making my space organized, and storing my things that I wasn’t using. Here are some of my best dorm decorating tips to make your transition into a smaller space as smooth as possible.

In a tiny dorm room, one of the best things you can do is maximize storage. My freshman year I was crammed in a room with 2 other girls and any type of storage you can get will be great for saving space. Having smart storage lets you utilize every single nook in your dorm room from behind the door to under the bed. If possible, one of my biggest tips is getting a look at where you will be living before you actually get to move in. I YouTubed videos of my dorm online and you may be surprised at the number of people who give dorm tours! I was able to see what the size of the dorm was and how many drawers my desk had.
