  • get a lift or bunk bed (if they are not already in your room)
  • maximize your dorm room space by downsizing
  • maximize your desk and closet space

Tips to maximize your dorm room space

Our first piece of advice is to get some multi-purpose furniture. As well as being multifunctional and stylish, futons and ottomans also save space. Ottomans can serve as extra seats and provide storage for utensils, books, and many more. Get creative! Speaking of furniture, we also recommend that you downsize. You won’t be able to bring all the furniture from your previous home.

Long distance moving companies New York offers would be more than helpful even for the heavy stuff, but we would advise you to get a new lift or bunk bed. This way you will have more space for a desk, a chair or even a small fridge. Our final tip is to maximize your closet and desk space. There are a variety of desk organizers to choose from. Use the surface of your desk for items such as pencil cups, paper trays, and drawer dividers to help organize your workspace.

Space in the dorm room closet is always very small, so if you used storage NYC you made a great decision. For everything else, you can add a cubby with storage cubes to create extra space in dorm closets. Place clothes, shoes, and bath accessories in them. Aside from a shoe rack, you can also add drawers, shelves, and storage drawers to really maximize your dorm room space. We hope these tips helped you settle in and that you will enjoy the times to come.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
