Dorm Room Makeover
Maximize your Dorm Room Space
and make your room more
College students, lets face it, move in day for most students is a stressful
experience for both you and
your family. With all the traffic, hundreds of students
all moving in at the
same time, many moving away
from home for the first time, getting organized, meeting new friends, signing up
for classes and trying to fit in.
While the cost of college goes up every year,
one thing remains constant...
the dorm rooms are always going to be the same
And speaking of fitting in, one of the more difficult tasks you are going to
face is fitting everything into your cramped room. Dorm rooms and
apartments were not designed to hold all the necessities of today's college student.
With a combination Loft Bed and Futon, make
your college room feel like home and the place where everyone wants to
If you are like most students, along with your books and clothes you'll have a
computer, printer, TV, microwave, refrigerator, DVD and probably a comfortable
chair or futon you would like to fit into your room.
Gain More Space - Get Better Organized
Become a More Productive Student
"I think it is important for students to personalize their residence hall room,
especially since it is their home away from home. Their room is also the
place where they spend the vast majority of their time - so it needs
to feel comfortable and hopefully a place where
students can feel productive."
Lo Biondo, assistant dean of Residence Life Duke University
For the cost of about three typical college textbooks (or ten large pizzas) you
can nearly double the space in your room by using a loft bed, and get years of
use from it. A loft bed allows you to raise your bed off the floor freeing
up valuable space for your personal items underneath.

now he has a place to hang his
wet towels" ...Joan
Typically, students place their desk
underneath, but also we have seen students put
or a complete entertainment center underneath their bed. If you are
going to be stuck in this small space for the next four years, why not do a
Dorm Room Makeover with a loft bed and make it fit your needs.
A loft bed is the
easiest and least expensive way to increase living space. Raise the
bed off of the floor and use the area underneath. Students will use it
throughout their college career
and often into their first apartment.
Does your college have a specific loft bed height requirement? If so, you
can use our
customize a loft bed to meet your college's requirements. Our lofts meet
or exceed most
college's loft bed requirements.
Empty space is wasted space...
Use the space above for sleeping and
gain more living space underneath.

Using two lofts in your room will give you an additional 64 square feet of living space
(it's like adding an 8'x8' addition to your room), and will actually make your small room "livable".

Move In Day Suggestions
We found this Rubbermaid Wheeled Storage unit to be very
helpful during move in day. Our daughter placed her clothing inside and we
were able to wheel it into her room. She stored it underneath her bed and
kept her out of season clothes inside. The lid kept everything clean and
free of dust while it was under her loft bed.
