If you are packing for your or your child’s fall semester it might feel like a lot has changed! Well, that is true. We are in the new normal where health and safety are top priorities and a lot of choices revolve around them. Guidelines from schools and indeed your own, justifiably put sanitizers and personal hygiene at the top of the list. Once you get past this list to deciding the furniture, you’ll realize that some things haven’t changed all that much. Like the key considerations in deciding the number and types of dorm furniture to help you settle down comfortably. For starters, you should resist the temptation to load up and get too much dorm room furniture. And then you need to evaluate the space available for your dorm furniture. It’s a good idea to lean towards multi-functional and compact furniture so that you have enough room to move around. And most of all, you need to personalize your room with what matters most to you. It’s all about feeling at home away from home even as you make the most of your time at college.
Easy as pie, right? Now you are ready to move forward to the next step, deciding which dorm furniture is right for you. Many schools provide a dorm bed. It would be your base for chilling out, sleeping, texting, catching up on Netflix throughout your college life. Most often, it is the other furniture in the room that makes a big difference in customizing your dorm décor.
Here are some unique dorm room furniture ideas to settle in style, especially for you –
This one was easy. A space for your books, stationery, and other supplies from your school lets you score some points for being organized! Go for an open, multi-functional storage bookcase to give you the flexibility to stack a variety of items and accessories. With a spacious top, it gives you the freedom to display a photo frame and decorate it with clocks, vases, and more. A bookcase with drawers adds options to safely leave your keys, glasses, and other smaller valuables.
Here’s a prediction. Your social life would be active and the right mirror ensures you look your best whenever you step out. When you want your accessories handy for last-minute adjustments, get a storage function mirror for its added convenience. Need a head-to-toe view to get your dressing right? A touch of gold over the door mirror hooks on conveniently to the door saving space while still giving a full-length view.
You may have experienced this before. Items tend to pile up quite quickly and a compact room can look cluttered in no time. A well-designed drawer cabinet gives you the flexibility to access your items easily while keeping them out of sight. A spacious 7 drawer cabinet makes the best use of vertical space on a small footprint with versatile storage options.
Considering how long you would be on your bed, it would be very convenient to have important stuff within reach. A wooden nightstand shelf with a drawer would look elegant while adding storage and decoration space. You can add a night lamp on the spacious top and also use it to leave your iPad, mobile, and more. Add an indoor plant and the effect would be awesome!
Academics can be taxing and it pays for you to be prepared with the right learning aids and generous whitespace. Invite your friends for your brainstorming when you have the convenience of moving around your whiteboard with stand. You can also take a more traditional approach with a set of two wall-mounted whiteboards.
Do you tend to be the hub around which your gang operates? Then you need every bit of surface space you can get for your group huddles. From food to beverages and plates to laptops, books, and more, a folding resin table adds the space you need. Want to hang out outdoors? You can conveniently carry it along as it is weatherproof.
Wish you could have a comfy bed and a convenient sofa with enough room for both? Wish granted! A convertible futon sofa lets you combine a spacious sofa and bed in one item of furniture. And your genie is not done yet! A split-back futon sofa lets you adjust the backrest at different reclining positions when you hang out with your BFF.
Who likes to stay put in a fixed dorm chair? It’s a lot more convenient when you can move around on the smooth wheels of an adjustable chair. A swivel office chair with a mesh backrest would upgrade your comfort by a few notches.
That’s all it takes to personalize and lord over your den at school! With the perfect dorm furniture ideas to settle in style, we hope you enjoy the journey through college life and follow your heart!
