Five Tips on How To Make Your College Dorm Room More Comfortable
Your dorm room can seem a little bland and uncomfortable when you first move in. Plus, college dorm rooms are usually quite small, and they only become smaller once you split it in half with your college roommate. Add in any essential dorm furniture and you may not have much room left! You're starting a new adventure that is exciting, but it can also be a little stressful and unfortunately can cause some homesickness. However, with some rearranging, decorating, and certain dorm essentials, you can make your college dorm room feel more like home.
2 – Standard Size Pillows – For an extra cozy dorm room, you'll also want to include at least one standard size dorm pillow to your Twin XL or Full sized dorm bed. No matter how cozy your college bedding is, if you don't have a comfortable and supportive place to rest your head, you won't be able to get the good, quality sleep you need to crush your college semester. If you don't need anything fancy, we do have a standard microfiber dorm pillow but, if you want to upgrade to something a little more supportive, we got you. With luxury down and down alternative options and even college pillow options that are configured for side sleepers, DormCo has the perfect dorm pillow (or pillows) for your dorm bed!
3 – Dorm Seating – Small dorm rooms and college apartments are usually lacking when it comes to cozy dorm chairs and other college seating options. If you want more options than just your Twin XL bed, dorm desk chair, and your college dorm floor (gross) you'll want to bring some additional dorm seating options with you to college. Of course, small dorm spaces aren't the perfect home for big, bulky furniture, which is why our college chairs and dorm sofas are made to be as compact as possible with some options even folding up so they can be stored out of the way. With a cozy college seating chair and spacious dorm mini-futon or sofa, your dorm room will become the best spot to hang out at around campus. Comfortable dorm seating options will also make your college dorm the perfect place to study and do homework, so you don't have to worry about any distractions that might arise at your university library.
4 – Dorm Room Rugs – College dorm rugs are important college supplies since dorm room floors are made of cold, hard linoleum and won’t create a very comfortable environment. And, since our goal is to help you create the perfect home away from home, it is important to make sure you have essential dorm items that make your dorm room feel welcoming. The cold linoleum of your dorm floor is not going to make your dorm room feel like home, and adding dorm necessities like a college rug to your dorm room is an easy way to improve that not so cozy dorm room floor. With a variety of different colors, styles, fabrics, sizes, and prices, you can get exactly what you need while sticking to your college friendly budget. Whether you need to cover a small area of your dorm room or just need a college area rug, you're going to make your dorm room feel more comfortable and turn it into a place that you love to relax in after a long day of college classes.
5 – Headboards & Other College Décor – In order to make your college dorm room feel like your home away from home, you'll want to add in some dorm décor pieces that show off your style and your interests. DormCo has unique college décor accessories that can really complete the style of your college dorm. Ranging from colorful college desk organizers to dorm mini lights and college wall hangings, this varied selection of college dorm décor is just what you need to make your dorm room feel like home. And one of the biggest pieces of dorm décor that can really change up the look of your dorm room and Twin XL sized bed is a college headboard! Not only will a dorm headboard increase the comfort of your extra long Twin bed, it will also become a huge part of your college décor! At DormCo, you can choose a simple neutral color Twin XL headboard or go with something a little more eye-catching with stylish colors and unique patterns.
