Types of Dorm Wall Accessories

To give you some dorm design inspiration, here is a quick overview of the main types of college apartment decor available in our collection.

  • Pinboards: Multi-functional pinboards make a welcome addition in just about every dorm room. They allow you to put up important notes and memos along with some of your cherished pictures and memories. Our pinboards come in a range of shapes, sizes, styles and colors so that you can easily coordinate them with your other decor. Magnet boards are a good alternative to push pin boards as well.
  • Wall decor: The quickest way to uplift your dorm walls is with some choice pieces of wall decor. Explore our college dorm decor selection to find eye-catching wall art, tapestries and murals that will fill the space with color and serve as fantastic conversation pieces. We also carry decorative objects like major league sports signs, boho-style wall garlands, cute wall letters and state flags to show off your pride.
  • Mirrors: There are many different types of dorm mirrors you should consider for your space. For example, a full-length mirror is a must-have for checking your outfits before heading out the door, while a vanity mirror will help ensure that your makeup is just right. We also carry wall mirrors that let you check your hair and accessories, in decorative designs that serve as a piece of stylish wall decor in their own right.
  • Calendars: Dry-erase calendars make it easy to stay on top of your schedule. Available in either whiteboard or acrylic designs, our calendars allow you to write down due dates, exam dates and even hang-out dates with friends. Once the date has passed, simply erase it to prep the board for next month's important appointments.
  • Headboards: Since the headboard takes up a good deal of visual space in the room, you want to ensure it comes in a style you'll love looking at. Our dorm headboards are designed to complement all of the other decor in the room. They feature soft and smooth upholstery with details like tufting and scalloped silhouettes. We carry both modern and more classic headboards to suit your preferences.
  • Shelves: Shelving and other types of wall storage solutions will help you stay organized while adding an extra decorative touch to the space as well. Many of our shelf and wall storage options are also designed to hold photos, letting you display all of your favorite memories with ease.

Create the ideal space to study, sleep, hang out and relax in with the right college dorm decor from Pottery Barn Teen. From beautiful wall art and chic mirrors to convenient calendars and handy pinboards, we have all of your decor needs covered.
