Layout Ideas

DSCN1714 (1024x768)

No matter what your college dorm room looks like, there are probably dozens of ways to rearrange it.  Don’t stick with the boring, typical college layout everybody else has.  There are even some theories that talk about how college dorm room layouts can affect your social life and your entire experience at college!  So why not give it a chance?  If you try something crazy and it ends up looking horrendous, you can always change it!  All you have to do to get started is imagine what the room would look like arranged in different ways.  If you come up with any brilliant ideas, draw them out so you can remember them.  I find it’s best to have a tape-measure handy.  If you move your room around without measuring furniture, you’ll be really frustrated if something doesn’t fit where you thought it would.  With the right tools and determination, you can create a wild design that fits your needs as well as your personality.
