With a son heading off to the dorm in the fall, the fun of shopping for his home away from home has begun! Something that we have realized is dual-purpose items are a must! As well as finding items that will not break the bank, since I am sure teenage boys in a dorm will be breaking enough as it is!
At Costoffs, they are dedicated to producing reliable furniture with versatile uses and timeless looks at a reasonable price. “We make affordable furniture for small spaces, and he believes that everyone deserves a comfortable and convenient living space” – Sonny, Founder.
Types of Desks to Consider:
Computer desks are often equipped with several drawers, cabinets, and shelves for plenty of storage space. The perfect option for a small space.
These are designed for those who don’t need many files, papers, and other items that are very close to them. They are always simple and modern in design, with a large and clean rectangular surface, four legs, and an open underneath compartment. Sometimes there are small drawers on the side and extra hutches.
Mobile Computing Desk
These desks often feature adjustable height and wheels, which allows you to work in any place you like without restrictions. The biggest drawback is that it comes with a compact-sized tabletop, which may only hold a laptop or a notebook.
The L-shaped desk allows you to change between different tasks or screens easily.
We received an L-shaped desk for my son. He recently built his own computer and loves playing online, and needed more space for the second monitor he just bought. He had the desk built by himself within half an hour, mind you, he is only fourteen. He said it was easy to assemble, and the instructions were clear and easy to read. This L-shaped writing desk measures 147cm/58”L, 112cm/44”W, 74cm/29”H overall.
Types of Chair:
Ergonomic Office Chair
The ergonomic office chair is specially designed for those at their desk every day. This breathable mid-back design features a densely knitted mesh backrest; this mesh office chair allows better airflow, accelerating heat and moisture dissipation. The mid-back design supports your spine’s natural curve and protects your lower and middle back as it prompts you to sit straight.
If you like the cool look of the gaming chair, it is worth buying to be your home office chair. Apart from the design, most gaming chairs have bigger seats and higher backrests than normal office chairs, which is more suitable for large-sized people. It also has a headrest, lumbar support pillow, armrests, and even a footrest that is comforting after those early morning classes.
You might want to think outside the box for different storage ideas; this is where the dual-purpose furniture will come in handy.
4 Tier Foldable Wooden Flower Stand
You might want to consider a plant stand that could also double for knick-knacks. This shelving unit can be a display stand for plants, photos, handicrafts, books. It can also serve as a fancy storage shelf for toiletries, towels in the bathroom. You can use this in the dorm, patio, balcony, etc.
3-Tier Slide Out Storage Tower/Bathroom Rack Rolling Castor
The pull-out storage tower is perfect for use in the dorm, bathroom, laundry room, bedroom, etc. This tower provides ample storage space for items and helps you to keep everything organized.
4-in-1 Large Capacity Trolley Makeup Case
Keep all your bathroom essentials in one place when heading from the dorm to the bathroom. A transformable makeup trolley case consists of 4 detachable compartments which can be freely combined as your demands. The top compartment can be used as a small makeup carrying case; the middle two drawers can be removed to make this 4-in-1 makeup case into a 3-in-1/2-in-1 case according to your work requirements.
Beauty Trolley Rolling Cart
A rolling cart has a top working area with several compartments & appliance holders such as two hairdryer holders. It offers 5 Slide-Out Drawers to store more makeup or tools.
Make sure to take note of the size of the dorm area and measure doors and the area itself to ensure that everything will fit!
