Every college student knows that a cool dorm room is a must-have. With that in mind, decided to do some digging into the top trends for the coming school year. What it found is not surprising: If you want to stay on-trend, metals, indoor plants and chic storage options are the name of the game. Though it doesn’t have a formal dorm room collection, Kirkland’s inventory backs up its research.

We’re not surprised to see these styles top the list. Mixed metals and succulents have been some of the most popular design elements of the last few years. That said, what sets many of these pieces apart is that they feel age-appropriate. They’re cool and grown up, yet still fun and playful enough to feel right at home in a college dorm.

With options ranging from full-on furniture to smaller décor pieces, there’s something to fit just about every style in order to make your dorm room feel like you. Plus, with individual pieces ranging from $7.99 to $59.99, there’s also something to fit a variety of budgets.

Don’t believe us? See for yourself.
