Everybody knows that dual function storage and cool, cozy bedding make a dorm room, right?
Ironically, if you are looking for dorm decorating ideas for a guy, not a girl, interesting stuff is hard to find.
Being a decorator-mom as I am, I had a hard time finding guys’ dorm bedding, storage and furniture for my son that would have any personality. I mean, I had gathered XL twin sheets- no sweat, but as far as nice dorm comforters and coverlets, I had to dig deeper. I guess, because guys are not as vocal as girls when it comes to their dorm rooms, they are being almost ignored by the retailers. Who cares if every guy’s room looks the same? Well, some of them do, just don’t say it.
After spending hours going through online stores, trade shows and catalogs, here are my latest finds:
Bedding for guys’s dorm room
You cannot go wrong with this great coverlet. Deep blue with contrasting ivory stripes will make dorm room decorating fun and easy to use.
Cozy up with this soft weathered denim. This completely reversible set shows off a yard dyed striped pattern in khaki and white for the flexibility of changing the look each day.
Want a rustic feel? This classic black-and-red lumberjack plaid is accented with cable knit pillows, making this masculine duvet cover perfect for a rustic feel.
In crisp shades of grey, black and a pop of red, the oversize plaid brings an urban feel to the room.
Oops! Forget about white sheets! Just get the diamond matalesse coverlet and decorative pillows of crisp navy blue.
