Check It: Essentials for Your DormAugust 1, 2017
Back to school is a busy time, you can’t be expected to remember everything. As you’re daydreaming about your perfect dorm room this summer, make sure you add these must-haves to your checklist.
An ultra-plush bedding set
From studying to binge-watching Netflix, chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time on your bed, so make it COMFY.
Fun and fashionable storage
Even if you don’t come with much, you’ll definitely accumulate a fair amount of stuff over the course of a semester. Invest in cute storage containers to stay organized and keep clutter-free.
Command hooks & wall mounts
There’s nothing glamorous about them, but they’re life savers in small spaces. From mounting your TV on the wall to having a place to hang your scarves and handbags – you’ll appreciate the extra utility.
A game plan
Make your dorm feel like home and coordinate with your roommate! You’ll love walking into a cohesive dorm at the end of a long day and it’s a great way to bond and get to know one another.
Dorm hall lighting can often feel like the harsh lights in an office or classroom. Warm up your room with strings of firefly lighting or decorative lamps.
You’ll be spending a lot of time in your dorm, so put in the time early on to make it feel like a home. Bring pictures, posters, throw pillows, quirky keepsakes, and whatever else you love for a solid start.
