Now that high school graduation is complete, it’s time to find items that will make your dorm room feel like home. Your dorm will be your refuge, your sanctuary, that little corner of campus that you can truly call your own – so why not make it uniquely you? Keep reading for 9 items from HomeGoods that will help create a space you’ll want to spend time in, even during those dreaded all-nighters.
- Desk Chair
You will likely be spending a lot of time at your desk doing homework or studying for exams, and the chairs in dorms are never very comfy. Not only will a plush, velvet desk chair make it easier to sit and study for hours, but it also looks wayyyy cuter than the one your college will provide.
- Desk Lamp
Perfect for studying into the wee hours of the night, this lamp comes with a bonus feature: a built-in USB port for charging your phone. Plus, if you’re an early riser and your roommate is not, the softer lighting is a great way to keep the peace and not wake each other up!
- Full Length Mirror
Mirrors aren’t just for checking your look, they can also make your room feel bigger, which is super important in small spaces. We loved this one that has lots of color and texture, adding so much personality to your space.
- Decorative Throw Pillows
When dorm room decorating, an easy way to add character is with throw pillows. Mixing and matching pillows with fun colors and patterns is a quick way to incorporate your fashion sense into your room, all while making your dorm extra cozy.
- Pencil Holder
Add a stylish touch to your desk and keep all your desk essentials organized in one cute pencil holder, so you never have to ask your roommate if they have an extra pen. P.S. Containers like this one are also great to store makeup brushes or toiletries in your bathroom!
- Dry Erase Board
Keep yourself organized, remind yourself about tests and projects, leave messages for your roommates, or tape up some photos from home – all you need is a little bit of wall space.
- Storage Seat
When it comes to decorating your dorm for maximum efficiency, you need to use every small-space hack you can find, and there are two things you always need more of in a small dorm room – seating and storage. This ottoman helps with both of those problems! It is super comfortable to use as a chair when your new group of friends comes over, and the top comes off so you can store extra blankets, shoes, or books.
Greenery can bring any space to life, but in case your school has limitations on bringing real plants into the dorm, prevent the risk of getting written up by bringing this cute faux plant instead. Plus, you’ll never need to worry about your roommate overwatering it.
Don’t cut corners when it comes to your bedding comfort (or style). You’ll likely be sleeping on the same sheets for the duration of your college career, so spring for a comforter set that’ll only get better with time. This floral set is 100% cotton so it’s extra soft, almost like falling asleep in a bed of flowers.
It’s hard to feel motivated when your space is totally bland. Legends Outlets is here to help take your dorm room to the next level and create a space you and your friends will love to hang out in.
