Dorm Room Essentials To Create A Stylish Space For Lounging, Studying, and Sleeping

For many up and coming college students, living in dorm rooms is the first time they’re able to completely decorate and choose what their living space looks like. These dorm room essentials aren’t necessarily the blueprint of what your dorm should look like, but they are the basics that will help create a fun, comfortable, and productive space for you your freshman year. In fact, these dorm room essentials to create a stylish space for lounging, studying, and sleeping are essentials that you can continue to use once you move out of the dorms and into a house or apartment. It’s always important to add your own unique twist to everything, so remember that despite these essentials that everyone should have, your room will always have its own distinctive feel.

1. Lights, Lights, Lights

I can almost guarantee you that your dorm room lights will either be too bright or too dim, so getting your own lighting in the room is first on this list of dorm room essentials. Without good lighting, it’s hard to study in your room and definitely not fun to relax in your room, so lamps and adjustable LED light strips are perfect additions to your dorm room. You can even get LED light strips that change colors, which can be fun for different occasions.

2. A Good And Cute Desk Lamp

A nice desk lamp can come in handy at any time, both when you’re studying hard for a test and when you’re reading your favorite magazine. The design of it is important too! If it looks nice, you won’t always associate it with studying!

4. Storage

You likely won’t have too much storage space in your dorm room closet, so finding good dressers or cubbies that won’t take up too much space in your small dorm room is at the top of the list of dorm room essentials. Ideally, find something that goes with the flow of your room, for example something that fits under your bed could be great for looks and space optimization.

5. Decorations

Decorations are absolutely dorm room essentials, as they are what sets your dorm room apart from the rest. Posters, pictures, paintings, and tapestries are all great for personalizing your dorm room. Most dorm rooms have pretty ugly walls, so I recommend covering them with as much as you can.

6. A Good Desk

It’s obvious that being able to study in your dorm room is a dorm room essential, so a good desk is important. Most dorms provide their students with desks in their dorm room, but if that’s not the case with your dorm, make sure to get a desk that not only works as a good study space, but has some space for storage. When you’re in such a small room, there’s never too much storage space.

7. Rug

Dorm room floors are bland and often gross, so any type of rug that even covers a small space on your floor is a dorm room essential. Rugs not only make your dorm look better, but they make the room feel more homey and less gross.

Speakers are dorm room essentials for anyone who likes to relax and listen to music, plus if you plan on socializing with other people in your room, a speaker is necessary.
