Dress up Your Dorm with Window Treatments

Dress Up your Dorm with Window Treatments

Starting college can be one of the most exciting times in your life. You get to go to a new place and meet new people. You can start fresh with a blank slate and are given the opportunity to completely redefine yourself to thousands of new faces.

Decorating your dorm room

is one of the best and easiest ways to convey your personality to your new roommate and new friends. By adding a

simple window treatment

that suits your personality, you can jumpstart the process of defining yourself as an independent and young adult!

We love helping young adults make the transition from high school to college and we have the perfect


and design elements to help you do just that in your dorm room.

It may seem like a

window treatment

isn’t going to help you redefine yourself as an adult, but here are a few easy ways that you can use your windows to add some unique decor to your dorm room. These simple tricks will be sure to grab the attention of everyone that walks in:

1. Add Color

Color is one of the best ways to show off your style to anyone who comes into your dorm room. At Arizona Blinds, we have all of the colors to fit the latest trends such as using vibrant pigments like teal and tangerine.

2. Choose a Unique Pattern

Patterns are what give that unique design element to an otherwise ordinary room. Just using color blocks isn’t something that is going to grab the attention of your visitors. Try paisley, stripes or floral designs to make sure your dorm stands out.

3. Make Your Windows a Focal Point

Dorm rooms are not always the most spacious rooms and creating a focal point for the room can be quite a challenge. Using your window as a focal point is a simple yet often forgotten design concept. By creating a one-of-a-kind window treatment for your room, everyone’s eyes will immediately be directed towards it. This simple trick will be sure to leave your friends wondering how you were able to get so much style into such a small space!

Not only is a dorm room the first space a young adult ever gets to call their own, but it’s the first opportunity they have to define their

decorative style

. These small spaces aren’t a lot to work with, but fortunately it doesn’t take much time or money to truly make it your own. These tricks will work wonders for setting the perfect decorative style in your dorm.
