Now that summer is halfway over, it’s time to start thinking about Back-To-School Basics - including Dorm Room Essentials! With limited space available in customary dormitories and apartments, the need to create your own sanctuary and some privacy is crucial; so why not spruce things up with some evergreen features that will breathe life into your new home for the next few months of your adult life. With fake greenery, not only will you eliminate weekly chores (watering, weeding, etc) and void any expenses on upkeep and replacement, but you’ll be able to welcome in year-round coziness without the hassle. Today we’re sharing five tips on how to transform your basic tile-floored dorm room into a haven from the storm they call college with the help of fake and artificial plants and flowers.
Create your own garden of paradise within the confines of your dormitory with the help of an artificial garland. We love the idea of stringing several strands of an artificial sage and ivy garland over a bed to create a dreamscape canopy that will undoubtedly bring personality to boring dorm room walls and ceilings. If you're looking to showcase a hint of romance, why not showcase a mix of peonies and berries along your bed’s headboard to evoke a little femininity within your concrete walls.
If you’re really looking to escape the prison-like walls of your dormitory, why not splash some serious foliage throughout them with the help of hanging greens. Not only will it bring character into the space, but it will evoke a sense of serenity. A complementary collection of fake hanging plants might even help relax you from the confines of your college dorm.
Rather than showcasing cheap posters on the wall, why not get creative by creating a one-of-a-kind flower wall with our extensive collection of loose fake flowers. Trending on Instagram, this easy-to-do project will not only add so much color to the room, but it will give the environment a taste of fresh air. The best part, you can continuously change and update the look with our seasonal-inspired sets of loose stems.
For added personality and charm, why not introduce several fake desk-top sized plants that can help accentuate a space with year-round color and texture. Fake succulents (like an artificial cactus or a fake aloe plant) make great table top accents when arranged and displayed with your own personalized decor.
If you love the look of freshly picked flowers, why not opt for an artificial arrangement of fake flowers that will effortlessly bring color and texture to your confinement. Because fresh flowers aren’t cheap, fake flower arrangements are a great alternative as they rarely need maintaining (maybe some periodical dusting) and can add romantic charm. Now only will they put a smile on your face upon entering, but they’ll fool your friends into thinking you have the greenest thumb on the floor.
