10 Insanely Cute Wallpaper Ideas For Dorm Rooms

So, you just moved into your dorm and you are looking for a way to spice things up a bit?

Decorating a dorm room is very easy because of the size of the space per person; so, it doesn’t require much.

At the same time decorating a dorm can be a bit limiting due to space and keeping things minimal but somehow making your space as homely as possible.

Wallpapers are a good option for your walls instead of paint; easy to remove and last for as long as possible; also, they are cheaper than paint!

Even if your dorm room has a rule against sticking things on the wall, don’t worry you can always use the gentle adhesive that I will recommend in this post, they come off the wall without ruining the initial paint on the wall.

When it comes to painting, you can’t change them or keep repainting them whenever you start hating the color; for a college student on low funds, this might be quite impractical.

That is why wallpapers are better in my opinion, and why I will be recommending some of my favorite ones in this post.

Let’s get started.

1. Decorate with checkered wallpaper
