College dorm comforters are another essential part of college dorm bedding and will really make a big impact in the overall look and feel of your room. Often times when you don’t have much more than a bed, the comforter becomes somewhat of the focal point in the room.
Making the right choice for what types of college dorm comforter you choose will depend on several things, being mostly your personal style preferences and what types of fabric you like the best.
The first important thing to consider is the color scheme of your room. If you haven’t already chosen a color scheme, it’s going to be the main guiding point in making sure things coordinate and will really help make your room feel much more relaxing and seem less cluttered or mismatched as many dorm rooms often do.
When choosing colors you’ll want to make sure both you and your room mate agree – if your room mate loves pink but it instills feelings of nausea in you, you’ll want to make sure you both pick colors you can compromise and agree on together. Maybe pink is out as a main color, but she can add a few pink touches and you’ve chosen a a baby blue and brown scheme instead, which can look great with a few pink accent pillows.
You’ll also want to factor in things such as the curtains you’ll be hanging on your windows and also what types of college dorm rugs you’ll be using. The comforter you choose will be the most important in making sure it all ties together well.
Pattern Vs. Solid
Choosing a pattern versus a solid print will also make a huge difference. If your room will likely be filled with a lot of clutter or items, then a solid print might help make it seem neater. If you’ll be going with the minimalist approach, then perhaps a decorative blanket with an intricate design may help give the room some interest and show off your personality.
Choose a Theme
Some designs are much more grown up and sophisticated, while others are more wild and crazy ranging from brightly colored polka dots to animal prints. Your room should be a reflection of who you are and the things you enjoy and the surroundings that make you the most comfortable. Some say that college is the last chance you’ll have for those crazy blankets, while others say it’s time to be “more grown up” – really it’s all a matter of your own personal choice what you decide.
