If this is your first year in college, congrats. You are likely excited about meeting new people and living on your own. But, before you pack your entire room to go with you, you should know that your dorm room is nowhere near the size you are expecting.
Some students are able to see their dorm before they move in, but if you are like many other students, you won’t actually see the room until the day you move in. Below, we will go over some dorm room storage hacks to help you easily store all of your belongings.
- Vertical Wall Space Is Your Friend
You will have an open wall or two on your side of the dorm room and you want to make sure that you use it. Vertical shelves and storage options will provide you with the most bang for your bucks. For example, the inside of your closet door may be bare, therefore, hang a shoe rack or use a peg board and attach some shelves to it. Once you have done this, you then have created additional space for your items.
