It’s Time to Upgrade Your Dorm Desk Chair — Here Are 10 Options Under $100
It’s no secret the desk chairs that come with most dorm rooms kinda suck. They’re not the most comfortable, even if they come with a cushion, and if you’re the type of person who goes all-out on decor, your chair probably sticks out like a sore thumb. But you don’t have to be stuck with your boring, standard-issue chair all year; if you hate the chair in your dorm room, you can always buy a new one to replace it with.
Purchasing a desk chair is a quick and easy way to personalize your space while giving you another comfy seating option besides your bed. Just keep in mind that most dorms don’t allow you to remove furniture from your room, so don’t try to sell your ratty old chair or stash it away in a storage unit for the semester unless you clear it with your RA or residential life staff first. Some schools will allow you to return your unwanted dorm furniture and replace it with furniture of your own choosing. If none of those options are available at your school, you can still get yourself a new desk chair; you’ll just have to hold onto your old one as well. You could always use it for extra seating when you have guests — or, more realistically, it could become your laundry chair.
Below, check out 10 desk chairs that are sure to be major upgrades to the one you got stuck with on move-in day.
