Automated Dorm Room Could Have Been Better with University Loft FurnitureHave you seen this video? It shows the dorm room that University of California at Berkeley college student Derek Low, um, upgraded. You see, Low, a UC Berkeley freshman has some serious technological skills and apparently wasn’t quite satisfied with his campus dorm room in its unaltered state. The result? BRAD, or Berkeley Ridiculously Automated Dorm. It’s a pretty impressive dorm room makeover, but it’s missing a few things that might make it even more dazzling: University Loft student dorm room furniture. (More about that in a minute.)

Frankly, it’s easy to get blown away by the razzle-dazzle in the freshman’s dorm room. Lots of bells and whistles that apparently cost Low a few hundred dollars and took about three months to plan and install. (And my university wouldn’t even let me install a homemade loft bed when I was in school. Sheesh!) The Berkeley student now has a wildly automated room that runs off motion sensors, voice command programs and mobile apps. Window shades open and close, lights and music go on and off, and there’s even a spinning mirror ball to enhance the room when in “Party Mode.”

What would have made the student’s dorm room even better? Well, the best place to start when accessorizing any residence hall dorm room or student apartment is with better student room furniture from University Loft Company. ULoft furniture has been outfitting university housing for more than 25 years, producing top-quality modular student furniture (made in the USA, by the way) that is not only built with solid wood that’s stronger than oak, it’s also environmentally friendly.

So, way to go, Derek! We salute your skills and initiative. Now let’s work on getting some ULoft furniture in your dorm room. It’s downright dazzling even without the upgrades!

What about the rest of you? What would you add to Derek’s dorm room?
