Easy Dorm Room Art Ideas

Hi Everyone,

As you can see, I'm still in the Back to school mode.  Did you live in a dorm room while attending college or university?  I lived at home during my undergrad years, but did move to the US to complete my MBA studies.  There I lived in a tiny second floor apartment in a house owned by a 90 year old lovely lady.  Sadly, she didn't want us to put up any artwork so there wouldn't be any holes in the walls.  And I'm assuming that most dormitories are the same......that is why I wish PosterJack existed in my university days because they have some creative ways to hang personal art.

So if you’re looking for dorm room décor or gifts for kids about to go off to college or just for yourself, Posterjack.ca has 5 unique photo art ideas to bring a piece of home to school.

1.  Art Shelf -- Create an art shelf with Framed Photos and Photoboards of everyone back at home.

2.  Add personality without the paint -- Create a great accent wall in a dorm room with a large Peel & Stick Poster.  Peel & Sticks are safe to use on any surface (won't mark the walls) and are re-stickable up to 200 times.  I absolutely love this idea and would have used these in my old flat.


3.  Canvas Collage -- Send your son/daughter to school with a collage of your favourite family memories on a Canvas Print. PosterJack's Collage Designer make it easy to create one.

4.  Photo Clothesline -- Decorate your dorm room from one end to another with string, clothes pins and your favourite Fine Art Prints. Also such a fun creative way to display art....and so easy to change it up!


5.  Corkboard Gallery Wall -- Create a gallery wall that's easy to change up as your create new memories.  Simply layer different sizes of Posters and Fine Art Prints on top of a corkboard.  What student doesn't own a cork board....so easy!
