dorm room essentials beddingAre you a parent sending your teen off to college for the first time, or maybe a student entering college for the first time? I remember my time in college at Florida Gulf Coast University like it was yesterday. The small stark room, generic furniture, and tiny closet. It was important for me to have all of my dorm room essentials while also having a home away from home. I wanted style, design, and lots of fun ways to store my belongings. If this is the first time you or your college student has lived on their own, it is important that they show off their personal style but still have all of the comforts of home. Having lived through dorm life first hand, I can absolutely attest to the dorm room essentials list that I have created.

  1. Towels

  7. Furniture Accents for Tight Spaces

Students moving into the dorms are going to be faced with many new experiences, including feeling homesick for the first time. I remember when I moved in to the dorms for the first time, many many years ago, and how homesick I became. Fortunately for me, I had an incredible roommate who took me shopping. We stocked up on all of the dorm room essentials we needed to turn out dorm into our home for the next year, and beyond. You can do the same for your college student, keeping things fresh and stylish by shopping at At Home.
