The Easiest Dorm Room Hack that Every College Student Needs

This post is sponsored by the VELCRO® Brand and Her Campus Media. As always, all opinions are my own!

Raise your hand if you love decorating, but only when it doesn't require a lot of work! When my sister went back to college this year, she had been looking on Pinterest for ideas on how to decorate her room since she's living in her Sorority House this year. She decided on putting up a gallery wall over her bed and I was SO excited to help her put it together! I love making gallery walls and thanks to the new VELCRO® Brand HANGables® removable fasteners, it was easier than ever to put everything up on her walls with no hammers and no nails.

The VELCRO® Brand HANGables® strips and hooks are all easily removable and damage free to your walls, so you never have to worry about ruining your walls' paint and when you're living at school it's even more essential! They even have damage-free strips that are meant for different weights so that you never have to worry about something falling down once you hang it. They're so secure and the instructions are simple, easy to follow and make what normally would be a drawn out process so simple and quick. When you're living at school, there's a ton of rules about hanging things up that don't allow you to use drills/hammers/nails or anything that will ruin the room's paint; the VELCRO® Brand has officially solved that problem!



I'm not going to lie... I'm pretty jealous of how her room turned out, hah! There's so many times I really needed these VELCRO® Brand HANGables® strips before and I wish I had them sooner! They make enhancing a room, like a dorm-style room, so simple and most importantly, so customized. The VELCRO® Brand HANGables® hooks are perfect to make a little DIY project with for your jewelry - since you're limited with space, hang the hooks on any sort of frame or board and drape your necklaces on the hooks! So many endless possibilities - these are seriously helpful in almost every situation ever! They're also life savers when it comes to making every little bit of space usable. Since you're likely cramped for space in your dorm room as it is, using every space possible makes things much easier.

And notice how none of the wall fasteners are showing in my sister's room - they're so sleek and don't ruin the vibe you're going for in your room! These adhesive wall fasteners come in so many shapes/sizes and styles so no matter what you need them for, there's a style that'll help you decorate your room easily. And if you're not in college anymore like me, get a pack to decorate your office or bedroom - they're life savers, especially if you live alone!


So, I love all of the VELCRO® Brand products, but if I had to pick a favorite it would hands down be the VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties. They're perfect for organizing a mess of cords - phone charger, laptop charger, hair tool cords, headphones - the list is never ending! I've been using these to make myself more organized when I travel and my sister has a bunch of them in her room to keep her cords organized now too. They come pre-cut so they're ready to use and they're re-usable. They're adjustable so you can tighten or loosen them and they're great for any sized cord you have! Seriously genius!


After seeing how well these worked (and how simple and quick it was to set everything up!) in my sister's room at school, I've been using these VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fasteners in my own home too - kind of hard to say no to any cute wall print/art now that they're so simple to hang up! ;) I'm starting to find pieces for a wall of prints over my desk and I'll 100% be using these VELCRO® Brand tools so that I can set it up all on my own!


Have you used the VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fasteners before? I want to know where else I can use these - it's becoming addicting hanging things up! ;)
