DormCo Presents New Ideas on How to Make up for What a Dorm Room Lacks

DormCo presents things a dorm room lacks and how to make up for it with compact dorm storage solutions.

Buffalo, NY, March 27, 2016 --( College rooms lack certain items and areas of storage. The college room can be quite small, even more so when the area is shared with a roommate. With the room lacking certain storage areas, the college student may feel like certain dorm essentials won’t able to be brought to college. However, with compact, creative storage solutions, the college student can greatly increase the amount of storage.

The room will lack storage in mostly two areas. There will be a lack of pantry space and a lack of desk storage. The desk may not have upper shelves or drawers. In fact, some rooms may have neither. Stacking books, notebooks, and other desk essentials on top of the desk is not an option when there is only the small surface of the desk available. That space needs to stay available for the college student to study, work on homework, and have a laptop or tablet set up. The storage solution to make up for this lack of storage for desk accessories is to invest in desk shelving like a desk bookshelf. This necessity will create space for college textbooks, notebooks, and more to be stored on the desk without taking up work space. Should the desk also lack drawer storage, a thin plastic drawer organizer can be added underneath the desk while still allowing the college student to have leg room. This dorm organizer is perfect for college textbooks that won’t be in use until later in the semester and extra desk supplies such as notebook paper and writing utensils.

There are going to be times the college student cannot or does not want to eat in the cafeteria. This means there will be certain convenient food options such as macaroni and cheese or cereal kept on hand and cooking items for these food options. The only place to store these dorm essentials is in the closet. However, this can easily result in spilled food on clothing, and the student won’t want to keep pots, pans, cooking utensils, and food near clothing items. Having a slim rolling pantry cart where these food items can be stored is essential. With a slim rolling cart, these items can be kept in one convenient location that can easily fit between a desk and the mini-fridge or wherever there is some extra space.

While the Residence Hall Room can lack certain storage areas for supplies such as study accessories and pantry items, these dorm essentials can be easily stored with compact storage solutions. With compact, designated dorm storage solutions for each of these necessities, the student can have a more organized, clean room.
