Make Your Child’s Dorm Room a Home
It’s time to face reality. You have to send your child off to college. To make matters worse, you are not allowed to go either, and who would have thought that would even be brought up? You say that you have to come. In spite of that, you feel enthusiasm for your offspring. Words cannot describe what you are feeling. Furthermore, there is a sadness being you are watching your child turn into an adult.
But when they leave home you can send them off in style. Here are some some tips for decorating your child’s dorm room.
On the off chance that you still have time to plan, go and visit the school of their choice. Start taking notes about understudy living. Bring a measuring tape so you can measure the amount of space there is.
A few schools don’t care for holes in their walls so pose your questions while you’re there. Also ask who the roommate will be. Organizing the dorm room is much less demanding with the roommate there. They can add their own input, and your child and the roommate can work together. This will help prevent any future conflict.
As far as furnishing the space goes, start considering ways to make the room look more noteworthy. Make sure the room is not cluttered. Hide what you can in a storage ottoman that doubles as a foot rest. Use book racks for storage and look vertically since that is where you will have extra space. Look for multifunctional attire racks. They not only hold dresses but hold much more than a typical clothes rack.
Don’t be afraid to express your ideas since more likely than not, your child will have no idea what they want. You could make a diy gallery headboard.Have your kiddo make a collection of things that make them feel extraordinary. Make them take things that remind them of home.Even if you have to decorate it, it’s important for your kids to have something that will make them feel nostalgic.
Go bold with color and take the ordinary to extraordinary with a style fit for a king or queen. Be the saint of the day and don’t be reluctant to upgrade and bring the bling or include a tiny bit of flare. Not only will you be the hero, but your child will know you came through as only a mother of father could. Maybe your child won’t even leave but stay at home!
