DIY options

If you’re worried about the cost of buying new furniture, there are many DIY options for rustic decor in a boss room. These can be made from reclaimed wood, pallets, and other unusual materials. For a more unique look, make your own headboard using reclaimed wood or a leather-like material. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to sew. Many colleges now provide sewing supplies and instructions.

Buying plush area rugs

While choosing a rug for your dorm room, remember that size matters. While larger rugs look great in your home, smaller rugs will look better in your dorm. For most people, a 5’x8′ rug is the best choice for a dorm room. You can choose a rug that is either 4’x6′ or 6X8′ and it will fit on the majority of the floor area. If you’re worried about having to share the space with others, consider a smaller size like a 4×6 rug. Unlike larger rugs, you can still maintain your personal style with a smaller rug.

Adding a headboard

A headboard can be a great way to add a rustic and farmhouse touch to a room on a budget. For a rustic look, consider using an old headboard, a corrugated metal piece, or an upcycled wood piece. The key is to get creative with the design. Try to add a headboard in a unique color to complement the room’s decor. Wood color will be especially good if you’re trying to create a rustic decor look.

Adding a burlap bow frame

Adding a burlap bow frame to your rustic decor is easy to do, and the finished product looks more expensive than it really is. You can make your own burlap frame from leftover wood, and the distressed white finish goes well with burlap and twine. There are many different ways to accessorize the frame, from adding a burlap bow to decorating it with burlap ribbon.

Buying a wooden framed corkboard

Buying a wooden framed corkboard for cheap dorm decor is a great way to add rustic charm to a room. You can use your favorite color scheme to create an interesting collage that will be pleasing to the eye. You can also decorate the board with pictures and art that you like, such as postcards and greeting cards. Another idea is to paint the corkboard and add a border.
