Available in a wide range of styles, table and floor lamps are another simple opportunity to inject the space with personality. Your turn: How do you make a dorm room feel more like home?

Find a corner to call your own. Whether it is a small table pulled up to a sunny window, a closet that can be curtained off from the rest of the space, a tiny unused nook or a cabinet with a work surface hidden inside, it is important to find somewhere that lets you fully commit to your creative practice. There will be times when you must leave your work in the middle of a project, and it is so helpful if you can leave some of your materials out rather than needing to clean up completely every time. Don't fret if the only space you can find is a bit out of the way — sometimes a desk with a spectacular view is not as conducive to good work as a tiny nook, where you can focus your energy on the task at hand.
