Dorm rooms are tight! How tight? The dimensions of a double at Washington University’s Dardick House is 10.5′ X 17′. That small. But you can totally make that work! Here are some helpful ways to get the most out of just the space around your bed.
1) Bed Risers
Rise up, ye greatest of mattress and maketh room for my crapeth! The cool Power Bed Risers raise your bed 7 much-coveted inches off the floor. One of the risers features “twin 110-volt, 15-amp grounded power outlets, as well as twin USB 5-volt DC outlets with charging light for convenient charging of handheld devices.”
Your twin-size bed, now on bed risers, fits right into this shelving unit that holds up to 180 lbs. of your favorite goodies. The no-tools-needed unit has two tiers. The shelves adjust in height every 1″.
3) Wheely Cart
Now that the over-the-bed storage has been handled, it’s time for – you guessed it – UNDER the bed! This cart on wheels is 23.7 x 6.3 x 24 inches and will be able to conveniently hold anything you don’t want seen. You know what we’re talking about. (We don’t even know what we’re talking about.) Anyway, this gadget will also fit nicely in your closet under hanging clothes, so pick up a couple. Who doesn’t like stuff on wheels?
4) Ceiling Net
5) Bedside Caddy
