Modern Dorm Room With Multifunctional Furniture and Futon
When buying furniture for a dorm room or other small living space, choose pieces that are multifunctional. A futon is the perfect example; by day it can be used as a sofa, but by night it can instantly turn into a full bed. Here, white tables on casters are used as an entertainment center and a mobile coffee table and the cubed bookcase not only stores books and kitchen essentials, but serves as a room divider, too.

Mini refrigerators are useful, but they aren't all that attractive. Personalize your dorm room refrigerator using strips of washi tape. We created an abstract stripe design with metallic gold tape. Chalkboard adhesive over the freezer allows you to further personalize the appliance. A light turquoise stacked shelf creates a cute and useful pantry for food and kitchen accessory storage.
Dorm Room Wall Photo Display on Rusted Mounted Hooks
Using wash tape to mount metal clips is an intriguing and stylish twist on the traditional picture frame display. The rusted looking finish of these clips adds texture and a vintage feel to the postcard display.
Cute Mixed Pattern, Colorful Dishes for Dorm Room Living
You don't want to spend a lot of cash on basic dorm dishes, but that doesn't mean they can't have great style! Pick a mix of inexpensive, patterned bowls in small and large sizes for everything from cereal to snacks. Add a few microwave-safe plates to complete the set.
