Guys Dorm Room Ideas

Decorating is hard, harder than it looks, especially with everything you have to juggle entering into a new year in college. It’s especially hard for guys: interior design is a woman’s game, and the majority of decorative knick-knacks and what have you are a little too girly for a guys’ dorm room. But don’t fret- we can tell that you’re fretting- we’ve come up with the top hints and tips updated for 2018 that will help you decorate your dorm room at school, keep things organised, and generally put together a cool place to live for the next few years.

Pack Light and Keep the Essentials

We’re all weighed down by stuff. We own so much stuff that homes are built with special spaces like attics and basements and storage closets just to store it all. And that’s in homes, dorm rooms are absolutely minuscule. When you’re packing to leave home, bear in mind that there just won’t be room for all the stuff you might want, or think that you’ll need. That way, you can save on space.

Not just that, but clutter looks bad. Nobody will want to spend time in your room if it stinks and looks like a tip- sorry to be blunt, but it’s true. It would be a lie to say that your friends have the same expectations that your mum did of you to ‘keep your room tidy’, but at the very least make it a pleasant place to be.  Don’t let this hold you back from choosing the right decor for your room though.  Creating a space that’s aesthetic and attractive will keep you motivated throughout your journey within the college world.

Masculine Color Schemes

There’s nothing wrong with trying to portray a little manliness through your decor. Hey, women are all about girly color schemes and patterns: polka dots, flowers, pink and yellow… But what we don’t see enough are masculine, powerful color schemes that give a room a completely different feel. Most rooms are either neutral, or feminine; but what about a space for the guys?

You can make a room immediately look more masculine with a color scheme that revolves around colors like black, dark green, and navy blue. In particular, try to stick with bold colors and patterns rather than fiddly intricate designs. A great way of achieving this is to have, say, a navy blue bedspread and a couple of navy blue decorations on the wall- you don’t have to have everything be the same color just to suggest a color scheme.

While we’re on the topic of bedding, in most cases, this will be the main focus of the entire room.  This is due to most dorm rooms being relatively small in size, the bed will make a large statement so you’ll need to choose what type of bedding you’d like best wisely.  Don’t worry, there are many styles of bedding to choose from after you’ve decided which color scheme suits you best.

A Straightforward Household Rota

Now that your place looks nice, why don’t we keep it looking nice? Back at home, you may have had to keep your room clean, do the dishes, or vacuum; maybe you didn’t have to do anything. But now you’ve moved out, you have to do it all. If you don’t, nobody else will (and if your housemate does pick up the slack, they’ll hate you with a brightly burning passion expressed through passive aggressive notes).

Don’t beat around the bush. Turn around and face the truth. Put together a straightforward household rota which clearly delineates your responsibilities and theirs, and keep to it. And if your new flatmate doesn’t want to, call his parents and tell on him. Well, maybe don’t go that far, but do try your best to keep the toilets clean, won’t you?

Make it Your Space

In life, it’s important to have somewhere that’s your space. Not just somewhere you like to be, but somewhere where you’re completely comfortable, completely happy and completely at ease. Somewhere you can retreat from the outside world, either alone or with friends. Your dorm room can be that little space that you need, sometimes, to keep sane!

When (or if) you do ever decide to decorate your little personal space: make it yours with posters, photos and personal bits and pieces. It doesn’t have to be absolutely plastered with your most personal possessions, but little things that remind you of home can be a great comfort… And most freshers suffer from homesickness far more than they let on. But this way, if you’re ever having a bad day, you can retreat to your you-space.  Below are some of the more popular posters we’ve found to be trending and make for a great addition to the room.

A Dart Board

Okay, so your bedroom is looking great, quite possibly the best at the university and you’re keeping it neat and tidy, but what about creating some fun? Board games like Scrabble or Monopoly might be out the window- bear in mind, you have to get along with the people you’re living with for the next few years- so what about a dart board? Darts are the perfect game for a social get together, and it’s just as good if you’re bored alone.  Shopping for a quality dart board is relatively easy.  Reading reviews, researching the product well, and checking the return options just in-case something doesn’t turn out right, all of which we’ve done nicely for you!

Just make sure that you improve your aim enough that you’re not sticking the dart in the walls or ceiling, and make sure that you hang the dartboard somewhere that isn’t, say, just above your sofa or above your roommate’s bed. You might not get your deposit back if you pockmark the walls, and you might end up in prison if you kill one of your mates with your bad aim.

Here are a few dart board options we found which make the perfect addition to the dorm room.

 

 

The Necessary Room Decor

If you don’t have one, why not convince your flatmate/flatmates to chip in for a TV? There are loads of free channels these days, and the TV licence is often covered by the company that own the halls. And since not everyone will have one, your little room will become a social heaven. And having a TV also means that you can finally get to unpack the Xbox, and put the dartboard away. Except now, you’ll be throwing the controller at the wall in a fit of rage.  Stay tuned for an updated list coming soon of more offers for dorm room decor.

A Mini-Minibar Mini-Fridge

This one doesn’t need much explanation. Having a little mini fridge stocked with alcohol is a guarantee of good times. Having a little mini fridge stocked with alcohol will make you friends all on its own. Having a little mini fridge stocked with alcohol will mean that you don’t have to keep going on beer runs in the middle of the night when you run out. And hey, maybe you could shove some snacks in there too if there’s any room. Alternatively, if your fridge is already full, have you thought of using a cupboard or a shelf for your alcohol storage needs?
