Are you looking for some cool ways to decorate your dorm room or apartment, or some really cool stuff you can buy to make it stand out? A college dorm room that is nicely decorated and has interested stuff definitely stands out from the typically, boring rooms that just have a beer pong table or a couch and futon. Thankfully there are several ways you can make your apartment stand out from others, with a combination of unique decorations, interesting gadgets, and overall flavor!

Interesting Dorm Room Idea #1 - Unique Lights

Why settle for normal, boring white lights when you can get something colorful and fun that will really make your parties stand out? This is where interesting lights come into the equation.

Option 1: I personally love these Bud Light Party Lights of beer cans, in a set of 10. They are perfect for a bar or any dorm room that is beer-friendly. Check them out below.

Option 2: Another awesome option for unique lights are these flip flop lights (for indoor use only). If you love the beach or even if you just want your dorm to feel like a beach... these lights are for you.

"Light up your luau or your year-round tree with these flip flop lights!"

Interesting Dorm Room Idea #2 - Neon Signs

You can be the normal dorm and get a college beer poster or an unmotivational, funny poster. But if you really want to be different, you need to get some cool neon signs for your dorm!

I think neon signs are awesome because they obviously light up and really stand out.

For instance, I absolutely love this one below - "It's 5:00 somewhere." This sign plugs into the wall and has an on off switch built on the cord, and it can be hung up pretty much anywhere. Check it out below.

Interesting Decoration Idea #3 - Get Huge Vinly Wall Stickers or a Wall Mural

Instead of getting a poster or putting up pictures on the wall, you should consider getting a big wall sticker to put in your dorm. These are not only easy to put on and take off, but also look really, really awesome at the same time.

For example, getting a nice wall decal of your own college logo is a great idea and shows a lot of pride in your school.

Another idea is getting a pro sports team decal, but you obviously have to like the same team as your roommates to do this!

Option 1: This one below is a huge wall mural of the NYC skyline and I think it looks absolutely amazing. The mural consists of 8 panels and is as easy to apply as regular wallpaper, and will honestly make you feel like you are living in NYC! Check out this NYC Wall Mural for yourself.

Option 2: If you want to go a little smaller and simpler, check out these peace sign decals, which I think would look good in a girls door room. If you're dorm room is already going with a colorful, fun theme, then you should consider adding these to your walls.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, taking some time and spending a little extra money to decorate your dorm can go a long, long way.

Think of all the fun parties you will have and all the Facebook photos that will show up online, with your awesome dorm room in the backround. The memories of your college years will be even more special because of it.

Hopefully you liked these cool dorm room decorating ideas that I've mentioned!
