The 18 Best Dorm Rugs That Will Ever Grace Your Closet-Sized Space

You may be short on space, but you'll never be short on style with these picks.

Urban Outfitters Leaf Print Fringe Dorm Rug
Urban Outfitters

Dorm rooms are famous for being incredibly tiny (and still somehow housing more than one person?!), so trying to decorate and add personality can be a challenge. Adding a rug makes a HUGE difference — it's an opportunity to add color, texture, and warmth without taking up additional space. Not to mention, if you don't have a rug in your dorm room, you're dooming yourself to walking around on cold tile floors for the entire semester, and that definitely won't help you feel at home.

The good news is, there are plenty of stylish, affordable rugs out there that will fit perfectly in your dorm room (just look for rugs that are around 4'x6' or 5'x7' — like the ones featured here — to be sure!). Whether you're into fringe or sheepskin — or bold, interesting colors or neutrals — there's a little something for everyone.
