Are you sending off a child to college this year? Or maybe you are heading off yourself?
Looking back to my own university years my room was one of the most important things to me when I started school. It was my first time being apart from my family (a HUGE adjustment for me) and I wanted my room to be my home away from home, to remind me of those closest to me while still representing who I am. The only problem? Have you seen how small those dorm rooms are?!
This is where Posterjack comes in! If you are not familiar with Posterjack they are a Canadian online photo printing company with a passion for photography. They create original and unique works of art to display in your personal space.
Students can decorate their dorm room with some fantastic photo art tips from Posterjack to maximize every inch of space.
- Make your room feel bigger with reflections! Metal prints and lacquer frames catch and reflect light helping to make a small space feel bigger
- Make a statement. An oversize poster makes a strong statement as well as creating a focal point, tricking the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it is.
- 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.
- Add personality without the paint. Most locations will not allow you to use paint on the dorm walls but you can still create an accent wall with Peel and Sticks.
- Inspiration boards. My personal favourite – create a collage of all the people, places and things that inspire you – perfect for above your desk to remind you why you are there and your goals.
All of these products can be ordered in three simple steps off of the Posterjack site:
- Upload a photo.
- Select your print and size.
- Sit back as Posterjack delivers right to your door (bonus here!).
Parents – this would be a great move in gift for your kids so that they can take a little piece of family and history with them as they embark on this new stage in their life!
