20 College Dorm Room Ideas to Channel Your Inner Minimalist With

Minimalist Dorm Room Ideas

Living in dorms comes with it’s ups and it’s downs.

One of the ups being:

College students get to decorate their new dorm rooms in (almost) any way imaginable! As someone who likes to decorate, I know that customizing a blank canvas of a room can be a lot fun.

Some like to go to town when adding decor, and some prefer to take a more minimal approach.

I myself, lean towards minimalist when putting my interior design skills to work.

I just can’t stand clutter! I purge my stuff probably way more often than I even need to.

But:

We all like what we like, so to each their own!

However…

When choosing a minimalist theme for a room, one of the most difficult parts is choosing the decorations that will be used. Because, well there are are only a few used!

String lights and photo collages are popular options, and for good reason. They help transform a cold, uninviting dorm into a cozy paradise away from class.

And that’s what we all want, right – just a comfortable place to relax in? Easier said than done though, of course!

Another problem is:

It’s hard to come up with dorm room decor ideas out of thin air!

Lucky for you though, I’ve got 20 minimalist dorm Room ideas ready for you to browse. Use them as inspiration for what you do with your dorm room.

…or just copy one! After all, as they say imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery.
