When I helped my daughter move into her first college dorm room,
I wasn’t prepared for how tiny her room would be! Floor space
was definitely scarce, and it was obvious she would have to come
up with some creative storage solutions.
Decorating a dorm room can be tricky, because obviously your
roommate will want to have a say in how the room is decorated.
Whether you are moving into a dorm room for the first time or
you are looking to re-decorate your existing dorm room, hopefully
these decorating tips will give you and your roommate some
creative ideas to give your dorm room a great new look that you
both will love.
Vacuum sealed space bags are great for transporting clothing to
college. You can purchase these inexpensively at Walmart or on
eBay. You won’t believe how much you can get into these bags. I
don’t recommend the extra large bags, because they are quite
heavy when full and difficult to carry. These bags can be stored
under a bed or stacked in the closet.
Small storage ottomans or benches can provide seating and storage
areas, and are easy to move around and fit into small spaces.
They are great for storing blankets, pillows, hats, gloves, and a
great place to stow away book bags or back packs.
