Adding Pazazz to Your Bed Room

Just because you're living in a dorm room doesn't mean your bed has to look ordinary or cheap.
You can easily create an luxurious look by adding a few pieces to your bedding. These additions are
generally inexpensive and will make your entire room look fantastic.

Decide on a Color Scheme
Before you go out and get the items you will need to create an elegant looking bed, decide on the color
scheme you want to use. Try and combine three colors that complement each other in order to create a
more visually appealing look. Consider using a blend of patterns including florals, plaids, stripes and
animal prints.

Add Lots of Layers
When you look at magazines or visit hotels, you will notice that the common element of luxury
bedding is a lot of layers of soft, elegant linens and pillows. To create the most luxurious effect be sure
to include the following bedding products: a bed skirt, a mattress topper and pad, a fitted and flat sheet,
a down duvet, two euro pillows with covers and cases, at least two down bed pillows with covers and
cases, and finally at least one decorative pillow.

Caring for Your Linens
Once you have purchased all of your bedding components and have achieved the look you want,
you will have to take special care of your linens in order to maintain their quality. Be sure to take the
washing and drying instructions that come with your linens and put them with your washing products.
Depending on the fabrics you have purchased, your linens will need some specific care to keep them
from fading or shrinking. Keep all bleach products away from your new bed linens. The chemicals in
bleach can quickly damage the colors. If you have just used bleach in your washer on other items, do
not put your linens into the machine without running a second rinse cycle while it is empty. This will
ensure that any residue bleach has been removed.

Dorms Housing Problems

For college students, having a safe, comfortable place to live is an essential part of being able to focus and do good work in school. But whether it's a convenient on-campus dorm or an off-campus apartment, student housing presents challenges that students need to consider before they decide where to live each semester.  One of the clearest problems in student housing is the need students have to find places to live that are close to campus. On-campus dormitories and apartments offer one solution, but many larger universities have so many students that auxiliary campuses and buses are the only way to provide enough accessible housing.  High demand for student housing near urban campuses or large schools may cause real estate prices to rise, making nearby apartments and rental houses unaffordable for students. Off-campus housing also places the burden of paying for utility service and commuting to and from campus on the students themselves. For students who take ou
