10 Small-Space Storage Solutions for Every Spot in Your Dorm Room
I can’t be the only one who experienced a moment of absolute shock when I walked into my freshman dorm room and saw just how tiny it was with my own eyes. I remember thinking, “I knew it was going to be small, but this small?” My housing website did a brilliant job of making the microscopic room look much larger online, and suddenly that carload of stuff I had waiting for me outside felt way too large to fit into my new home.
After testing out a ton of different storage products in that tiny dorm room, another tiny dorm room the next year, and now a 400-square-foot studio apartment in New York City, I consider myself an expert of small-space storage solutions. My biggest takeaway is that if you’re willing to invest a little bit of time and money into your space, it’ll pay off big time. (My second biggest takeaway? Don’t just shove your stuff into the closet to deal with later — you’ll end up regretting it.)
Below, I’m sharing some of my absolute favorite small-space storage products that will make every zone in your room more organized, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.
