Most dorm rooms are teeny tiny. And sure, you probably don’t need a lot of stuff when you go off to college, but you still need some stuff. How are you gonna fit it all in? And how are you going to fit it all in in a way that doesn’t make your dorm room look like a complete disaster? We’ve got a few ideas.
One of the best ways to take advantage of a tiny dorm room is to find out if your school’s residential offices will loft your bed. A lofted bed frees up floor space for additional storage and will make your room feel larger. Want a little more privacy? Just looking to divide the room up a bit? Curtains are an easy way to add colorful pattern and some order to your dorm. If you’ve lofted your bed it’s a great idea to hang curtains from the railing. It’ll give you a little extra personal space—perfect for those not yet used to living with a roommate.
