Summer may still be in full swing, but it won’t be long before temps begin to cool and college kids head back to university. If you’ll be shopping for your dorm room soon, we’ve got a few suggestions for pieces that will work twice as hard for you while taking up the same amount of space. Read on for our favorite 2-in-1, space-saving dormitory essentials to help you kick off the new school year in style.
These are perennial favorites across the world – from small attic and studio apartments to dorm rooms all over the globe. Just because you are short on space and wish to maximize the square footage does not mean that you need to sacrifice style, and these ingenious IKEA bedroom compositions showcase precisely that.
Loft bed frames can be used to turn that tiny dorm room into a living room, bedroom and kitchen at the same time, while smart storage units, cabinets and side tables ensure that you can keep this common space a lot more organized. When it comes to small bedroom designs, versatile IKEA solutions and their smart Scandinavian form is truly top notch.
Just like with carpeting, dust will cling more to anything that’s covered in fabric. If you’re going to have upholstered furniture in your bedroom, go for something that’s easy to wipe down, or choose pillows and cushions that can be removed and washed.
Use a color that is already present in the bedroom and repeat it with bedding and pillow cover choices to create a lovely bedroom that is both exciting and serene at the same time.
While many homeowners concentrate on other accessories and decor in the bedroom a touch too much, they forget that at the end of the day it is indeed all about the comfy, relaxing bed that meets your specific design and ergonomic needs.
Controlling the amount of dust that collects in the bedroom can be quite a challenge given the fact that it’s the room where you dress and undress for the day, store your clothes, and sleep for several hours every night.
If you live in an apartment or a “cozy” home, then you know just how much of a hassle it can be to try and position your furniture (or even fit all your furniture) in a way that looks good and is relatively functional.
