Popular Dorm Wall Posters

You might be sharing it with somebody else, but odds are your dorm room is going to be the first place that’s really yours. You can eat when you want, sleep when you want, and if it matters to you, you may decorate pretty much how you want (aside from keeping to school-side rules.) This list will help give you a few interesting ideas for posters according to what’s most popular online so you’re not stuck with the same old content everyone else has.

Before you buy

Bear in mind that whatever poster you pick out, there are a few tips for room decor which we’ve heard down the grapevine which helps keep everything in check. This is a brief checklist of what to consider:

  1. Think about the color scheme in the rest of your dorm room. Color coordination is important, so no matter what you pick out, make sure it matches the color of the wall it’s going to hang on or any secondary or tertiary colors you have going on throughout the room.  Some of these accent colors may come from pillows, chairs, furniture, and more.
  2. If you’re sharing a room, it’s a common practice to run things by your roommate/roommates before buying. If for some reason they are pathologically opposed to Thanos raining supreme over your bedside, which happens to be your favorite movie, then having a sick Thanos poster with clever quote to Thor on the wall won’t be worth the passive aggressive hostility you’ll get for the next few months to years.
  3. The last two items we suggest thinking about is where you’re going to hang your poster and is there sufficient enough room to hang it?

Great, so we’ve gotten past the boring ole’ introduction to the page and now we’ll dive into the fun part, the actual wall art pieces themselves and a few more decorating ideas that we update regularly.

Natural Wall Art Posters

Space Themed Canvas Prints

Here we have a 4-piece space canvas theme which works with many different color variations including blues, blacks, purples, magenta, or pink.  This combination of pieces works with masculine or feminine color schemes and adds a unique touch to any dorm bedroom.  Try positioning these over the bed or desk for best results.

Here are a few photos from users placing them over a bed or couch in the living room area.

What users are saying:

Users have mentioned that they love the inexpensive artwork of the space themed canvas prints.  Paintings don’t always have to break the bank and they’re blown away by how pretty they are.

Above we have a nice collection of another space themed set, showing a few planets, eclipse, and asteroid belt surrounding a planet.

Here is the set shown above a bed over a nightstand with a masculine blue, yellow, and beige color scheme.

Real art

There’s no need to stick to the same derivative posters on your room walls. The great thing about decorating your dorm room with original works is that you can find something that really speaks to you, and not only that, but they’re a great conversation starter. Now, these could be a little bit pricier than usual, but (depending on what exactly you choose) are completely original. Alternatively, they could be prints of famous artworks: something interesting like a Francis Bacon print, for instance.

At the very least, when you do leave, you’ll be able to take your art with you to your new home, wherever that might be. Or, if you can’t be bothered lugging it in the back of your car or hiring a moving van, you can always sell it- and it might command a high price not far off what you bought it for, at least if the artist managed to make a name for themselves…

Flags

Now, this might depend on what exactly you’re studying. But say you’re studying Geography, French or Spanish: what’s wrong with a few flags to liven up the room? They show new friends what you’re into, where you’re from and who you are. After all, going to university is almost always the first time you’ve lived alone, or at least away from home; pick out something that’s going to show everybody who you are and what you’re about.

There are also cool obscure flags out there like the weirdly shaped flag of Nepal, the Frisian flag which is covered in hearts, or the flag of Russian province Zheleznogorsk, which features a bear breaking apart an atom with of all things. So flags can be weird, obscure and even funny.

Avoid clichés

The first thing you should know is that almost everyone you meet at university is going to have some sort of posters on the wall above their bed, or on the back of their door. And for some reason, most people will have one or more ‘classic’ posters in their college dorm room. Here’s a brief list of all the most recognizable posters that it’s probably best to avoid:

  1. Great Wave off Kanagawa, that Japanese print of an ocean wave
  2. That poster in French with the cat on it
  3. Anything to do with everyone’s favorite movie, Pulp Fiction
  4. Last but not least, Che Guevara

None of these are particularly inspiring, and if you do choose one of these then all I can say is that you’re not the only one. On the other hand, some people think of posters as an opportunity to tell the world something about themselves: I’m from Paraguay, so I have the flag of Paraguay above my bed; or, I’m studying music, so here’s a poster of the most obscure band I know. This can be a good conversation starter when you’re just starting out at uni, and have to make a lot of new friends in a short amount of time.

Fan made movie posters

Movie posters are always a good choice. But there’s a recent trend where movie fans are creating posters of their own for their favourite films! These can come in any number of different styles, but the ones that we really like are minimalist ones- peppered with references or in-jokes- that we think look so much better than the real deal. Check out Etsy for some great home-made examples.

This take on a Star Wars poster is awesome- rather than the cliché New Hope release poster, this is a minimalist take on the Death Star. This one’s a nice take on Rocky: it’s a boxing glove on a plain background. Of course, there’s far more than this out there; just search for your favourite movie on Google and something will almost certainly come up.

  28. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  29. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this
    site could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.

    Excellent blog!
