22 back-to-school furniture and decor buys to take your room to the next level

It’s August! Which means you’re already starting to think about going back to school if you’re a student (or parent of a student.) When I was a college student, I remember many friends being unhappy that summer was coming to an end. I, on the other hand, was excited because not only did I love school but I also loved decorating my dorm and making it my own.

I will admit that I probably bought way more than I actually needed, and spent too much on dorm supplies. It’s absolutely possible, and necessary, to decorate on a budget during college—whether that’s in a residence hall or off campus apartment—and even post-college (if you live in a small space, here are some home goods we recommend).


Below, I’ve rounded up 22 dorm furnishings (all under $300!) to help you start the school year on a high note—including items for the bedroom, bathroom, and living room. If you’re looking for kitchen supplies, last week I gathered the best kitchen accessories to pick up now. Happy shopping!
