For college students, a dorm is a home away from home — it’s no secret that living far away from family is hard. So it’s important for students and their families to make sure that their college dorms are a pleasant and motivating environment. There’s nothing better than creating a tranquil atmosphere that reminds you of your family, friends and happiest moments in life.

When a student moves into a dormitory, the first impression is not exactly outstanding. Let’s face it, dorms lack character. However, you can easily add a touch of personality to your space by decorating your walls without breaking the bank (or the rules). We’ve listed 4 print products along with creative ideas that will help you add pizzazz to your room. Here’s a look:
