Dorm Lighting - Because Your Overhead Dorm Light is Not Enough
One of the dorm essentials you need to make sure you have on your college dorm checklist is a dorm light. Your college dorm room may have an overhead dorm light, but you will find that the light it puts out will not be enough. There will still be dark corners in your college dorm room which isn't conducive to studying. You don't want to hurt your eyes trying to read your college textbook at night. These dorm lighting options will not only allow you to add some extra light to your college dorm room, but they are also compact and add to your dorm room decor!
1 - Clip Light - Dorm clip lights are great for college dorm rooms. They are compact and take up no space on a dorm desk or college nightstand. The large clip allows this dorm essentials item to be securely attached to your dorm desk or even the headboard or frame of your dorm bed. The portability of this college supplies item will allow you to be able to study wherever you choose to in your dorm room so when you want to relax on your dorm chair or dorm bed and study, you don't have to squint your eyes to see and uncomfortably angle your college textbook to see with the overhead dorm light. Plus when your roommate is sleeping, you won't have to leave your dorm room to study or disturb them with the overhead dorm lamp as you'll have a small dorm light to study by!
2 - Flashlight - This might seem like a random dorm item that you would not really need for college, but our dorm experts recommend having at least one or two flashlights lying around your dorm room. You never know when you'll need an extra flashlight, especially in cases of dorm emergencies! Dorm room power outages are rare, but not unheard of. Sure, you could use your phone flashlight, but that will just drain your cell phone battery–which is a big problem if you don't have electricity in your dorm room! This LED Flashlights - 3 Pack includes three mini flashlights, which means you can have one in your backpack, in your dorm room, and maybe one to share with your roommate if you are feeling generous. These compact flashlights can even be used when your dorm has plenty of power, but you want to study in bed with as little light as possible to avoid waking up your roommate.
3 - Christmas Lights - Don't underestimate how much some dorm Christmas Lights will add to your dorm room decor. They'll add some extra lighting to your college dorm room, but they'll also complete your overall dorm room decor theme. You can create designs with one string or multiple strings on your college dorm wall and have multiple strings of all one color or multiple colors. The possibilities are endless! Wrap these dorm essentials around the outer edge of a large dorm message board for a unique look to your dorm room decorations! These dorm necessities will add extra pops of color to your dorm room and make it feel even more like a little home away from home.
