I have a senior in high school, so we have spent the last few months touring colleges and checking out door rooms. Surprisingly, little has changed when it comes to dorm rooms since I went to college many years ago. Amazon Prime Student is definitely a great way to get what you need for your new dorm for a stress-free back to school time!
Smart storage is the key to make a small space like that work for you. Here are our top 10 Dorm Room Necessities:
#1 AmazonBasics Bed in a Bag
This bed-in-a-bag set comes with sheets, comforter and pillowcase and pillow sham for that hard-to-find Twin XL size in dorm rooms. They have a lot of cute prints in this one!
#2 AmazonBasics 6-piece Cotton Towel Set
This is an awesome price from AmazonBasics for a set of 6 towels.
#3 Extra Plush Mattress Pad
The mattresses in dorm rooms are not the most plush, but adding an egg crate or a plush mattress topper makes all the difference in the world.
#4 Bedside Storage
Due to the layout of your dorm, you might not be able to reach the desk, and bedside storage makes things so easy to storm your phone, a couple books, maybe a candy bar.
#5 Deluxe Popup Laundry Hamper
You definitely want a laundry hamper that you can easily carry down to wash your clothes that holds the laundry soap, and it’s collapsible!
#6 Bed Risers
This is how you get magical storage in a door room. You’ll be amazed at how much stuff you can store under the bed in a dorm room.
#7 Collapsible Storage Boxes
Under the bed storage is a must in dorm rooms. These are collapsible, which are even better for space saving.
#8 Self Sticking Hooks
Hooks are great for storage, or hanging those twinkling lights, and you definitely want some that are easy to remove.
#9 Multi-Tiered Hangers
Dorm closets are tiny. Sometimes you even have to share, so making use of space with tiered hangers is a great way to go.
#10 Dimmable Desk Lamp
One of the best things you can do is respect your roommate. Using a desk lamp that you can dim when someone else in the room needs to sleep or rest is all about being a great roommate.
