With the end of summer quickly approaching, the end of summer often can mark a new adventure for many kids heading off to pursue post-secondary education.
For many attending university or college, this often means that they will be heading out on their own. Moving away from home and taking up residence in a dorm room. A dorm room offers the chance for students to claim a space and come into their own, often in limited square footage.
I can remember when I would visit my husband at university. His dorm room almost felt more like a jail cell. The cement walls were covered in a thick coat of white paint. The environment was very cold and unwelcoming. He wasn’t allowed to paint the walls of the room. I wound up printing off pictures and bringing him posters to help cover up the bare walls. Anything in attempt to give his personal space more home-like in hopes to ward of feelings of home sickness and just overall boredom. He deserved a place to call his own. All university and college students taking up residence in a dorm room do!

Posterjack has 5 photo art tips to make the most of the small space.
1. Make it feel bigger with reflections – Metal Prints and Lacquer Frames catch and reflect light which can make a space feel bigger.
2. Make a statement – on oversized Poster makes a statement and also creates a focal point, tricking the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it is.
3. Create continuity – use a collection of Canvas Prints that have the same soft colours and are the same size for a natural flow throughout the room.
4. Add personality without the paint – create a great accent wall without the paint or damage with Peel & Sticks.
5. Inspiration boards – create a collage of all the people, places and things that inspire you – perfect for above a desk or workspace.
