7 Dorm Room Essentials Every Student Needs

Hey everyone,

In less than a month the summer holiday is over and the study days begin. Summer is my favorite season of the year for so many reasons. The days are longer, the sun shines, going to the beach with friends and the list goes on. Although, I have to admit that I kind of like it when it's getting darker earlier in the evenings. Maybe many of you have graduated high school and are of to starting as a freshman in college this year. It's an exciting and new chapter and I'm excited to start mine in September. You'll learn so much more new things, get to meet so many new people, and you'll grow as a person. It's also a step towards becoming more independent. Maybe you have decided to move out and get your own dorm room. I'm still not sure if I'm going to move out, but it's sure fun to have more freedom. It's also a great excuse to start shopping for some cute decor for your new place. There are so many things you already need to think of when going to college. To make it easy, here are 7 dorm room essentials every student needs. Let's get right to it! 

7 Dorm Room Essentials Every Student Needs

Besides wanting your room to look nice, it's also important that it's comfortable. You're probably going to study there or inviting your other roommates over from next door. Pillows are just inevitable for a movie night in and make your room look cozier. 

I use the blender almost every day. You can make so many different smoothies with it and it's also very healthy. My favorite smoothie would have to be with yoghurt, blueberries and ice cream. Besides the ice cream it's healthy.. When you're in college this can be a quick and easy way to eat lots of fruits or vegetables. 

My favorite headphones are the Bose Silent Noise cancelling. They really cancel or the noise from outside and you feel like it's only you and the movie or music that's playing. It's very handy if you want to study and block out the noises as well or just want some me-time. 

What is even a dorm room without any mirrors?! Every dorm needs at least one mirror, just to check once in a while if your makeup is still ok, to fix your hair or in the morning to take a look at your outfit. And besides, mirrors do make a room look bigger.

This gives your room that extra personal touch. You're probably going to have a lot of new experiences, and the best will become memories you'll always want to remember. I have to confess that I don't that much pictures, but from now on I'll take a picture of an experience I want to remember years later. 

I got to know this brand trough a Youtuber and I really want one too now! Lovesac is a brand that sells beanbags. I used to have a beanbag many years ago in my room and it's really comfortable. I think if I would go to a campus I would definitely want to have one in my room! 

Starting your year well organized will save you from getting stressed quickly. You can write all the important tasks that need to be completed on the to do list chalkboard. It's best to not use this as a planner only, you still need to write the homework assignments in your normal planner. Just keep this for the big events or birthdays coming up. 

There are of course so much more dorm room essentials that every college students needs. A few more essentials are:

Polaroid Instax 
Laundry hamper 
Desk lamp
Hair dryer
Window panels
Travel mug 
Lucite makeup organizer 
Extra pairs of sheets
