100 Progressive Dorm Room Items

From Fleecy Bean Bag Onesies to Anti-Distraction Headphones

— September 6, 2019 — Life-Stages
With the back-to-school season quickly approaching, students may be scrambling to purchase essential dorm room items, however, thanks to this comprehensive collection of state-of-the-art products, students can ensure they have a fun and successful school year.

These products have an array of useful functions, spanning from anti-distraction headphones for students who need help staying focused to unbreakable phone chargers for the student who always damages their charging devices. Another must-have for late-night study sessions and before early morning exams is a high-quality coffee maker to ensure students are alert and prepared. Students should also consider some practical yet stylish dorm room decor -- the options range from elegant storage pieces to storage-integrated desktop lamps that are equipped with charging stations.

Life can be stressful for students, so to minimize stress, consumers can consider one of these dorm room item must-haves.
