Paul is with Hans Greenawalt from Ikea in West Sacramento talking about how to make college dorms rooms fun and stylish this Fall.

Hans brought a bunch of funky furniture from Ikea to show Paul all the options out there for students.

He suggests checking with the school, and the student's roommate, BEFORE shopping to make sure everything you buy and bring is allowed.

Some of the looks shown are all white with pops of color to add character and light to a room. In addition, lights and photo frames make great desk decor.

Hans also likes the mod and graphic theme, which highlights black, white, and more pops or color.

Who can forget storage? Furniture that doubles as storage is great for spaces like dorms, such as ottomans that open to a large storage space. Functional furniture, pieces with more than one use, make great additions to small spaces.
