What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

1. Choose a Rug With a Fun Design

If the rest of your dorm room vibe follows a simpler approach with minimal patterns, then a rug with a busier design is a fun way to add some color and creativity to your space. If your room consists of colors like pinks and blues, then finding a rug with these complimenting colors can bring your space together and make it seem cohesive without looking too cluttered. A patterned rug is also a great way to experiment with different designs and colors in your room without it being overwhelming.

On the other hand, if you are going for a more maximalist trend approach in your room then choosing a rug with a bold and intricate design that rivals the patterned bedding or throw pillows you might have picked out can give your space a look of varying colors and patterns that are different but create a fun overall look. A large, patterned rug is a fun way to add a maximalist flare to your dorm room floor and can instantly brighten up your space.

There are plenty of different styled rugs out there and each one can take your room in a different direction and bring out a new aesthetic. You can really have fun with the patterns too, mixing and matching designs and colors until you get your desired look. You can use a rug to contrast the other colors in your room to make them stand out or find one that matches the colors you’ve already chosen in your room. Just find a rug with a pattern you love and your room will surely come together.

2. Pick Out a Simpler Rug

A simple rug option can give you a cozy vibe without the extra design

Sometimes a simple rug is the way to go.

If bold carpet patterns aren’t your style, you’re more of a minimalist at heart, or you are just looking for a simpler rug design, rugs that are on the plainer side can still take your room from being the bare room you moved into to the fabulous room where everyone wants to hang out. Because let’s face it; a room that is more put together and welcoming is more likely to be the hotspot where everyone wants to be.

Similar to how you can incorporate a patterned rug to compliment a less busier room, you can do the opposite with a plain rug design. Choosing a rug that is absent of patterns and designs can allow the other aspects of your room to stand out. Just like how on the flip side of this if you prefer your room to have a more clean look, then a simple rug with minimal decor and colors can help you achieve this look.

But just because you want a simpler design doesn’t mean your room has to be boring. If you opt for a more neutral colored rug then you have more freedom to play around with textures or solid colors. You can pick from an extremely fuzzy rug, a plain bright pink rug that matches your bedspread, or a rug that is plain in color but has a design etched into it. The options are limitless but regardless of the route you take, your rug will look amazing.

3. Create a Layered Look With Different Rugs

If you’ve been searching for a room aesthetic that is different and trendy then creating a layered rug look in your dorm room might just be the thing you’ve been looking for. Layering your rugs in your dorm might seem silly, but it can actually look good and can give you a unique look that no one else on your dorm room floor will have. Plus, there are so many fun ways to go about it!

One way you can achieve this look is by taking a more bohemian approach and mixing different neutral designs and patterns to create a collage vibe on your floor. Boho style is all about natural colors and rustic designs, so finding rugs at your local thrift store that are different in design but all fit a boho vibe can give your room a fun look.

Layering your rugs can also be a cool way to play around with mixing textures and different patterns. You can layer a fur rug over a thinner, less cushioned rug to give your space more depth without sacrificing the comfort of a fuzzy rug. Or, play around with textures like suede or a faux fur area rug. You can have a lot of fun layering your rugs and experimenting with different looks.

4. Experiment With Different Rug Sizes and Placements

Similar to layering the rugs in your room, experimenting with varying sizes and shapes of rugs in your dorm room can give your space a unique look that is sure to make your room stand out. No one ever said you had to pick one large rug for your dorm; instead, pick out a few smaller rugs that you like and place them around your room. You can put one by your bed, under your stylish desk chair, or anywhere you feel you need a little extra cushion.

By choosing a variety of rugs you can purchase fun rugs with silly sayings, pictures, or neat designs that you like but might not want on a large surface. This is also a time where you can try out varying textures as well. For instance, maybe you want a fuzzy rug by your bed so your feet won’t be cold in the morning, but you also have a different rug in mind for in front of your closet or by your door. With this trend you can have it all.
