Big Ideas in Small Spaces: How to Ace Dorm Furniture

Melissa Enciso

Getting back into the semester groove can be daunting for some; living in a dorm or studio apartment requires an eye for space-saving functionality without losing your taste in style. Whether you're looking for a smart way to dine, an easy way to tidy up, or a new lounging piece, we've rounded up some of our faves to fuel your study sessions!

Here are some of our favorites for the school year ahead:

Stylish Dining

 Our favorite newcomer is the 3-Piece Counter Height Table Set. This modern design blends bohemian comfort with unobtrusive design; elevated seats let you step away from the rest of your space while adjustable shelves help you store away any dinnerware or napkins. Ideal for small spaces, the two chairs slide perfectly underneath the tabletop to keep everything in place.

If you prefer something a bit closer to the ground, check out our 5-Piece Mid-Century Dining Set. Complement your dorm with a clean design that seats 4, perfect for hosting study sessions! Just as space-saving as our previous table set, the chairs slide in smoothly to keep a tidy look.

Lounging Essentials

To make the most of your study breaks, we're including our tried & true classic, Gaming Floor Chair. This BCP favorite has multiple adjustable positions, so you can enjoy gaming, tv show binging, or catching up on a book! The best thing about this chair is you can fold it up when not in use, so you can hide it away when you have guests over. Our gaming chair comes ready to use, no assembly required with 360-degree swivel that moves with you!

We doubled up on our dorm furniture, so what you see isn't all you get! Take for example our Upholstered Sofa Bed Futon, an ultimate dorm favorite thanks to its extensive features. Choose from 3 adjustable positions to find your perfect angle, whether it's study time or snack time! If you're tight on space, you can use this futon as your full-time bed, so you get the functionality of a sofa and a bed in one!

Storage Must-Haves

It's important to keep your dorm as tidy as possible during the school year, as they say, a decluttered space equals a decluttered mind! We're currently obsessing over the Vintage Hyacinth Storage Basket; this durable design is crafted with 100% natural hyacinth over a metal wireframe for lasting use. Though its primary use is for storage, this basket can also be used as a stylish plant basket for any indoor greens, or cover the basket with the included lid and use as an extra seat!

If baskets aren't enough and you need to know what's what in each one, our Set of 4 Pantry Baskets does everything you need. These natural handwoven hyacinth baskets come equipped with a chalkboard label & marker so you can organize each basket accordingly. The baskets hold up to 15 pounds of stuff, perfect for any room in need of cleaning up.

Home is what you make it, and with a little creativity and clever placement of furniture, you can turn your dorm into a personal paradise! No matter how small it is, you'll have all the space you need.
