Your dorm room is a vital part of your life at college. Adding homesickness to your list of burdens as a student is best avoided. As is putting up with a soulless dorm room you don’t feel at home in. Just like your room at home, your dorm room should be as much a sanctuary as a place to work and play. And you don’t need to spend a week on a makeover to make your dorm room feel like home.
1. Make Your Bed More Familiar
A predominant piece of furniture for any dorm room is your bed, so to make your dorm room feel like home, you should make your bed feel like home too. If comfort is an issue, put egg-crate foam topper on your bed so you can sink in and fall asleep quickly. Bring a pillow, pillowcase, blanket or comforter from home, preferable freshly washed in the laundry detergent scent you’re used to. You could even make a pillow out of an old shirt you loved.
