38 Dorm Room Storage Solutions

From Cushion-Topped Tables to Reclining Bookshelf Chairs

— July 15, 2014 — Art & Design
Going away to college can be an incredibly exciting time, but to make the transition from living with parents to a tiny dorm room, most students need to invest in some practical dorm room storage solutions to make the most of their new space. Fortunately, beyond just buying a few dedicated shelving units, there are tons of other furniture designs for tables, chairs and beds that serve as multipurpose places to do homework, projects, hang out with friends, eat and sleep.

Because they need to suit a range of needs on a shoestring budget, these kinds of storage solutions for students are usually able to transform to take on different shapes, which can be really impressive, space-saving and also very cost-conscious.
