Organizing your Dorm Room for Success

  • Has your child been struggling when it comes to the adjustment of college and living in their dorm room? The problem could be in the way that their dorm room is organized. Organization is key when it comes to having a successful study space. We at 1st Choice Storage in Gautier have gathered some dorm room organization tips for success below.
  • Add much Needed Floor Space
  • Dorm rooms are limited when it comes to square footage. You can make more floor space available to you by using bed risers. Bed risers create enough room under your bed to store totes that can carry extra school supplies, clothing, and accessories. Bed risers can easily be purchased at most home goods stores.
  • Temporary and Removable Wall Storage
  • Most dorm rooms come with a bed, desk, and a dresser. This doesn’t give you a lot to work with when it comes to storage. Removable wall storage can help you organize your smaller accessories. Stick on Pods are made to hold small things like make-up and toiletries. You can easily put these on the inside of bathroom cabinets or next to your vanity. Command Hooks are perfect for hanging anything from clothing accessories to wall art.
  • Hidden Storage
  • The trick to keeping your dorm room organized is to have a variety of hidden storage options. Over-the-door organizers are a great solution when it comes to storing the smaller accessories you need in your dorm room. Ottomans are great for lounging and storing extra blankets or larger accessories within them.
  • Dresser Organization
  • Most dorm rooms only give you a small dresser to fit the majority of your clothing in. Don’t let your clothing storage situation get out of hand. Making your own or buying drawer dividers are a great way to organize all of the clothing you plan on storing in your dresser.
  • With a clean and organized dorm room your child can focus and feel comfortable while they are away at college. For all of the other items that just couldn’t fit into the small space of their dorm room, use a storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Gautier. We have a variety of storage options that fit every budget.
