6 Themed Decor Ideas That Will Take Your Dorm to the Next Level

Moving into a dorm is possibly the first chance you get at being the interior designer of your own space. Of course, you could go the traditional route and just grab some curtains, area rugs and other design basics. But if you’re looking to go the extra mile, check out these themed decor ideas that you can use as inspiration!


1. Bookworm

Could you think of anything more cozy than turning your dorm room into your own little reading nook? Didn’t think so! Besides adding some literary themed wall art, we suggest setting up a plush bean bag under a floor lamp for the ultimate reading space.


2. Sports

Man cave, anyone? Get ready to gather your floor-mates in your dorm room for the big game. You’ll want to make sure you have some comfy bean bags for convenient game viewing, and a magnetic dart board will provide entertainment during commercial breaks. Don’t forget to display your favorite team hats with an over-the-door hat rack!


3. Beach Paradise

With decor like this, you’ll be headed to paradise every time you get back from class! Neutral tones paired with shades of turquoise give a subtle beach feeling, but the palm tree wall decals are what really makes this space pop!


4. Music

Want your dorm to be the go-to spot to hear the latest hits? While a good audio system is a must, we suggest taking it a step further with some themed throw pillows, musical posters, and string lights for ambiance.


5. Travel

If you’re an avid traveler – or you just have a case of wanderlust – you might as well make your dorm room feel like an adventure as well. To make it more personal, fill the space with photos from your own travels!


6. Glam

Sometimes you just want to live like a Hollywood star, and that’s okay! It may be a dorm room, but you can add some easy glamour with golden tones, faux fur, and a little Audrey Hepburn.
