-- Olathe, KS--July 24, 2012--Heading off to college is an exciting time for students and their families. Students are ready to embrace new opportunities and experiences but what they may not be prepared for is living in a limited space environment of a dorm facility or residence hall. Since space is at an absolute premium, it is important for students to put some careful thought into getting the most out of their living quarters.
While it is true that many facilities come with basic dorm furniture like a permanent bed frame and cheap mattress, most students prefer to express their own personality and style. Simple changes like the addition of an inexpensive headboard and colorful bedding can do wonders for a drab dorm space. Make the space your own with the following:
Save Space: Consider switching from a traditional bed frame to this space creating alternative. While traditional bed frames stand 6-8 inches high, a platform bed frame is 14 inches high, effectively doubling the under bed storage space!
It doesn’t take much for a small space to become cluttered. Consider keeping your space nice and neat with under bed storage bins. Make sure they have casters to make them easy to roll for added convenience.
Give your space a cozier feel with dorm furniture. Remember that inexpensive doesn’t have to mean cheap furniture. You want furniture durable enough to withstand a college lifestyle. Check your local furniture store for specials on headboards, nightstands and chest of drawers.
If you have any available space you might want to look at purchasing a student desk. A quiet, comfortable workstation within the confines of your dorm room can be vital to your ability to concentrate and study effectively.
Students keep notoriously long hours with late nights and early mornings. That makes the quality of sleep absolutely crucial. You aren’t going to get a good night of rest on an old, lumpy mattress! Opt for a new student mattress to ensure the quality of sleep you get each night so you wake feeling refreshed every morning. Shop your local mattress store for a Back to School Mattress sale where you can find a good deal on a suitable mattress for your dorm room. Brighten it Up: Put the finishing touches on your space with your own style! Brighten up the room with brightly colored bedding and other decor including lamps and pictures.
Your dorm room is your home away from home. Take a little time to make it a comfortable, enjoyable place to be by choosing the right dorm furniture, bedding and accessories. Take the time to research your local mattress store, furniture store and decor store to find the perfect items at prices you can afford.
