So, once again September is in full swing and the summer break is fading into a distant memory…yes, it’s sad but true! Now you’ve packed up your stuff and left home, it’s time to start a new adventure and a chance to show off your awesome summer memories. Why not play around with your artistic flair and personalise your university dorm room? That way, you can take with you all the memories of home and of friends you left behind.
We are always blown away by our customers’ creativity. Check out 10 ideas that our customers have created to help inspire your new dorm room!
Idea 1: Photo display kit
Create a photo survival kit. In a box, put all the things you’ll need to create a photo display when you get to your down. Then, if you’re ever feeling a bit homesick you can just look up and see the smiling faces of your loved ones!
Include your photos, some mini pegs, sharpies (of every colour of course, unless you want to add text using our website) and some lovely fancy string to hang them on.
Idea 2: Photo Bunting
Bunting is used everywhere in the summer – you can’t escape it sometimes! So give your room that summer vibe with your own photo bunting – choose flags or fairy lights to make your bunting unique.
Idea 3: Create a Polaroid Pinboard
Maybe you are sharing a dorm room and your new roomy doesn’t want anything on their side of the room. Simple – just pin or stick them onto your wall. You can also use them to help you with revision. Associate a picture with an important fact. That crazy night out in the big city = X+(YxZ)
Idea 4: Show off your travelling memories
Add them to a display! Maybe your travel game has been strong this summer, or maybe you’ve stayed closer to home. Either way, this display is a great way to show off what an awesome time you’ve had to all your new friends.
Adding photos to a world map is a great display idea for all your travel memories
Idea 5: Add colour to your room
We know you can’t paint your dorm but our Vintage prints and Limited Edition frames can add a splash of much-needed colour. Look out for any limited edition ranges coming soon. You can also use our Custom prints to add your own border patterns and colours!
Idea 6: Stick them!
That beginning of term organisation has kicked in and everything has its place…especially the pictures on your wall.
Idea 7: Turn Polaroid style prints into a shape
Add a little more love to your room with your own picture heart or even create the word ‘LOVE’ – give it a try! This works great with our official Polaroid Prints!
Idea 8: Stunning verticle display
Coloured ribbon makes for a cool vertical display
Idea 9: Washi Tape it
We love washi-tape! Use some coloured or patterned tape to easily hang your prints on the walls!
Idea 10: Put a frame on it
Some dorms won’t let you hang things so why not pop your pics in a frame and prop it against your wall? Our Black polaroid Style Prints with a black frame really help your memories to stand out.
Tiny space? Don’t panic, our Mini Polas fit in tiny frames too.
Now it’s your time to be creative! Remember that we love to share our customers photos. Just share them on Instagram tagging us @wearesupersnaps and using #supersnaps too!
