Determine which color suits you the best, and if you don't have the option to repaint your dorm room, then incorporate some decorative items in multicolored hues.

    1. 6. Revive those timid floors

The dorm room just seems so yucky. Despite having hardwood or laminate flooring, most dorm floors are nasty, and one very tactful way to revive them is to cover them up with some exciting rug. Carpets are rather expensive for a student, but you can get some second-hand shrubby or printed rug. Cover the worn out floor under your chair or desk, or simply lay it neatly in front of your bed, and voila!

These genuinely creative and inexpensive tips will undoubtedly transform your seemingly boring dorm room into an awesome shelter.
