Dorm Room Must-Haves to Accessorize Your College Living Space

University Loft Dorm Room with AccessoriesHow will you accessorize your college dorm room? If you’re one of the lucky students in more than a thousand colleges and universities that outfit their residence halls and student housing with University Loft’s modular, solid wood student furniture, you’re off to a great start! But what else can you add to your tiny dorm room that will help you maximize and personalize your college living quarters?

Here are just a few cool items to “tweak out” your dorm and help you make the most of your residence life:

The Dorm Room Refrigerator:

What better place to start than with the coolest item of all (aside from your University Loft student furniture, that is)? Dorm room refrigerators run the gamut from a retro-chic Coca-Cola-styled 6-can mini fridge to a more spacious and functional dorm fridge that has a write-on/wipe-off dry erase front panel.

Bunk Bed Accessories:

Your University Loft bunk beds are already the ultimate in dorm room cool. After all, they can be configured in myriad ways to personalize your college living quarters. But if you’ve got the top bunk and don’t want to have to keep climbing down to reach your stuff, try  a bedside caddy to keep your tissues, cell phone, magazines and other small items handy.

Laundry, etc.:

Got dirty clothes heaping in a pile and taking up space in your dorm room? Maybe you should check out Bongo Buckets. This assortment of large to small pop-up cylinders can help you tame your dirty laundry and even desktop items. Or you can organize your shoes, clothes and toiletries with the Complete Dorm Room Organizer Package.

Obviously there are many more dorm room accessories that can bring out the best in your on-campus living space, and we urge you to check out the product reviews and make an informed decision before you buy. But items like these – along with your University Loft modular dorm room furniture – might be a great place to start.

What about you? What are your favorite dorm room accessories?
