Ceiling Medallions: The Perfect Dorm Room Decor?

August brought a whole new wave of wide-eyed, eager freshmen to America’s colleges, ready to embark on the next chapter of their lives. Now about two weeks into the semester, millions of kids are now faced with the challenge of making home – their new dorm room or apartment – truly feel like “home.”

If your son or daughter hasn’t had the chance jazz up their new digs, we have a unique and creative idea to spruce up their new living quarters – ceiling medallions.

Why Ceiling Medallions?

As more and more folks seek creative yet affordable ways to spice up their places, ceiling medallions are transforming into an increasingly popular option

Here’s why ceiling medallions make sense for your college student:

Ceiling Medallions are minimalist

When it comes to design and Generation Z (the age cohort your kid is in), less is more. After all, this is the generation that grew up with flat screen TVs and sleek, razor thin phones as the norm.

When it comes to décor, it doesn’t get much more minimalist than solid colored ceiling medallions:

They are what they are, nothing more and nothing less – the type of “silent strength” that’s made companies like Apple and Tesla the king of design.

Ceiling Medallions are customizable

While Generation Z loves their minimalism, they love customization even more. Just like their elders (Millennials), Generation Z is used to getting what they want, when they want it. It’s this appetite for customization that’s killing off industries like cable TV – people don’t want to pay for hundreds of channels they’ll never watch – they want the power to customize things to their own liking.

Since many ceiling medallions (and all of ours at Henta) come pre-finished white, your kid can decide to decorate their medallion however they want.

Prefer to keep things low key? Keep it simple:

Aiming for something a little more unique? Paint it how you’d like…


Ceiling Medallions are affordable

Plain and simple, most college kids don’t have a ton of money. It’s a weird, transitional period in life where you’re no longer covered by mom and dad’s payroll, but you also don’t have a full-time job. That means money is tight and you can ill-afford to spend a lot of dough.

That’s the beauty of ceiling medallions – especially ours at Henta. Almost all of our medallions can be purchased for less than $40 – about as much as a nice pair of jeans.


In a weird way, ceiling medallions with their minimalist design, ultra-customization and affordability, encapsulate all of the defining features of a tailor-made, picture-perfect Generation Z product.
