7 Essentials for Your Dorm Room
If you live on your school's campus, ensuring that you have all the necessary supplies for your dorm room can be a daunting task. Since college is one of our specialties here at College Gloss, we have the seven essentials you need for your perfect dorm room.
If your bed is not bunked, then use a set of bed risers to prop up your bed frame. By doing so, you’ll have extra under-bed storage space, which will be helpful due to the small size of your new abode.
Posters and Photographs
Nothing makes a dorm room feel more like home than having decorated walls. Hanging up photographs of your best friends and family will prevent homesickness and will provide topics for conversation among your roommate and guests. In addition, selecting posters of your favorite actors, movies or causes to hang up will help show the campus world your interests and passions.
White Christmas Lights
A college staple, these classy lights have made statements in dorm rooms for a reason – they’re simple, yet inviting and comfortable. These lights work well for movie nights with friends or when you want to read or study, since the harsh lighting from standard dorm room lights is often too strong.
Microwavable Macaroni and Cheese
For the nights when you have too many assignments to even think about leaving your dorm to eat at the dining hall, having a few cups of microwavable macaroni and cheese on hand will always come in handy for late nights spent studying.
Although paper towels are often provided by your college in the public restrooms, there are a few occasions in which the paper towel dispenser will be empty. During these times, having a roll of paper towels will surely come in handy. Paper towels are also great to have on hand when sharing snacks with friends, cleaning your room and painting your nails.
Back Rest Pillow
A cozy back rest pillow is a trusted companion for when you want to curl up in your bed to read a magazine without sinking into your mattress. Because there are so many designs and colors on the market, you’ll surely be able to find one that matches your room and personality perfectly.
A shower caddy allows you to easily transport all of your necessary toiletries from your room to the bathroom without dropping or losing any of your belongings.
With these essentials, you will surely stay comfortable and at ease in your dorm room all year long.
