  • School Supplies

You’re attending college to jumpstart your adult career. Why not select school supplies that inspire you to do your best? Pick a planner, a personal laptop, notebooks, pens, and even highlighters that make you excited to attend class!

  • Cooking Appliances

If you’re lucky, your college campus will have a dining hall. However, you’re not always going to want to leave the dorm for food. One of our best dorm room decorating ideas is to choose small appliances that fit your style.

For example, this Retro Mini Microwave oven in Cream is sure to maintain the personal style of your dorm room while functioning as a helpful appliance! Similarly, this Retro Air Fryer Toaster Oven comes with 7 cooking functions, and your dorm mates will be sure to comment on its adorable appearance.

  • Cleaning Supplies

You won’t have access to your mom’s cleaning cupboard anymore! Take some time to collect the proper cleaning supplies you’ll need to keep your room fresh. Air fresheners, sanitizing wipes, paper towels, and dish soap are a few cleaning must-haves.

  • Storage Containers

Dorm rooms are small spaces; therefore, you’ll need storage containers to keep your items organized and out of the way. Lucky for you, storage containers come in all shapes, colors, and sizes to help you match your organizers to your style.

  • Hygiene Products

We recommend thinking through your shower routine to ensure you pick up all of the necessary hygiene products for your dorm room. Toothpaste, dental floss, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are the basics!

  • Mini Refrigerator

Your residential hall may have a kitchen available for everyone to share. However, having your own modish Mini Refrigerator will be highly convenient for both you and your roommate. Imagine not having to walk all the way down the hall for a snack!

  • Decorations

From posters and framed pictures to throw rugs and tabletop decor, you’ll want to select a few decorative items to make your dorm room represent your style! Take some time to consider what you can add to make you feel more at home during one of the most pivotal years of your life.
