3 Creative College Dorm Seating Ideas
So you were lucky enough to fit one lounger or butterfly chair in your dorm room? Although that's great if you only have one friend, you'll ultimately want to create more dorm seating! Beyond the obvious, which is investing in a mini-futon or dorm sofa, there are some alternative dorm seating options that take up less space in your college dorm room.
1: Turn Your Dorm Bed Into a Couch!
Transform your Twin XL bed from the place you sleep at night, to a dorm room sofa by day. How, you may ask? It's simple, with a plush pillow style headboard! Adding one of these Twin XL headboards not just makes your dorm look nice, but it also turns your Twin XL dorm bed into a dorm seating spot! In dorm life you just have to be creative when it comes to your space, and by turning your bed into a sofa, it doesn't get more creative than that. Besides being creative you also have to be practical. The nice thing about creating a support cushion with a tufted pillow headboard as a sofa is that you can also use it as a traditional dorm headboard. Keep this college headboard up against your dorm wall so you aren't tasting cinder block while you sleep.
2: Try a Dorm Mini Futon.
Why MINI? Because mini FITS!
Dorms can get really small, especially when sharing the spot with a roommate. The tough question on "going small" always comes with dorm furniture. On one hand you want college seating that can fit you and your friends, and on the other hand you don't want a huge college sofa the size of your dorm room dimensions. Our suggestion is to get the futon, but in a mini size. By getting a mini college futon you still get the versatility of a fold-down sofa couch bed, yet by making it small you can fit it in your dorm without worry that it will engulf your entire room.
3: Dorm Floor Pillows - The Hottest Dorm Trend of the Year!
College floor pillows are a popular dorm item that belongs at the top of your dorm supplies checklist! These oversized floor cushions add a chill, laid back vibe to your dorm decor without taking up much space. Well, these oversized floor pillows do take up a bit of floor space, but because they are flat they can easily be stored under your dorm bed or leaned against your dorm room wall when not in use. Any girl's or guy's dorm room setup can get an upgrade from these high quality floor cushions. And with extra large floor pillow dimensions, multiple college buddies can sit on one comfy dorm floor cushion, making them a good value to really maximize the seating in your college dorm room!
