Going to college is an exciting time for teenagers. For the first time, they’ll be living on their own without you under the same roof. As exciting as this transition is, however, it’s also an overwhelming one. One way you can help make this transition easier is by helping your child decorate her dorm room so that it reflects her personality and individuality. It’s important to remember while you’re preparing to decorate that space is limited and that your teenager will need to coordinate with her roommate before taking over the whole room.

If their decorating tastes are patently different, you’ll want to make sure that your teen decorates only her side of the room. These six blog entries look at several different dorm room design options that could be the perfect inspiration for your teen.
