Starting college is a super exciting time for any young adult. But we know that it can be scary too, especially when you have completely new surroundings to get used to. We've put together a little guide to help you settle into your new home as quickly as possible.
It is likely that your dorm will have standard white walls and dark carpets, and in most colleges you aren’t allowed to put anything on the walls that will leave any marks or damage. Adding some bright cushions will give a burst of colour and additional comfort to your new home. Get creative with our Bigz dies, they are perfect for soft craft makes!
Put your own stamp on your dorm with bunting, plants, photographs and any other decorative items that you like. It’s likely that you will be spending a lot of time in your room so it’s important to make it as homely and comfortable as possible.
Think clever when it comes to storing your belongings as it’s highly unlikely that you’ll have much space to play with. Storage boxes and organisers are perfect as you can pack everything away neatly in corners, under your bed and on top of your desk. Why not have a go at upcycling some of your storage items to give them a fresh new look. Sizzix have a range of making essentials and dies to choose from!
Complete your room with all the essentials needed to help you succeed. Get ready for your semester of lectures by creating fun, personalized covers for your notebooks. Check out our Scoreboard Dies here. Or, how about creating your own deadline board or desk calendar to help keep you on track!
