College Dorm or Childhood Bedroom?

Teen bedroom loft style

This is a tough subject. Your friends have gone off to their four-year schools and you’ve decided to stay home and commute to college. Or maybe you went to college and discovered it was so much fun that you had to come home – back to the bedroom you thought you left behind at the end of high school.




Going away to college is a time for independence and very often students express that separation from their parents by decorating their dorm room. It’s almost like having your first apartment, except you need to share a bathroom with thirty other people. Parents also get their chance to redesign your old bedroom into a spare bedroom with less posters, less mess and maybe even a new memory foam mattress!




The funny thing about staying home is that most students never consider redecorating their childhood bedrooms.  Not sure you fall into this category?   Look around. If you’ve got your six-grade class photo on the wall or a poster of Drake and Josh, it’s time to make a change and find your inner DIY-self. You could even get some new, modern furniture from furniture in fashion!
