Moving into residence can be an adjustment, especially since the rooms are a lot smaller than what you may be used to. Fortunately, there are a number of ways for you to maximize the space when living in a small dorm room at a reasonable price.
The first trick, use bed risers. Your bed takes up a good proportion of your living space in residence. Using bed risers will lift your bed off the ground a couple of inches and provide you with a ton of more space for storage. You can purchase these for a decent price from places like Walmart, Amazon, and Bed Bath & Beyond!
The second trick is over-the-door organizers. Over-the-door shoe organizers can also be a life saver. They’re not only a perfect place to store shoes, but can also be used to store anything from cleaning supplies and hair products to snacks! It’s super cheap and a great way to save space for your drawers.
The third trick is to have a bulletin board! If you have a feeling that your desk will start to clutter immediately after you move in with things like, notes, reminders or even jewelry, there’s no need to worry. Bulletin boards are a great way to decorate and hold up certain items.
Last But Not Least!
Lastly, for any extra random space you may need to store things, it’s a good idea to purchase some stacking drawers. You can buy these individually in all sorts of different sizes and colors. These are great because you’re able to stack as many as you’d like and you can fill them with whatever you’d like.
Clutter is chaos, and that’s the last thing you need while trying to focus on enjoying your time in college. Hopefully these tips will help make your room more spacious and save you the hassle of clutter!
