Of course, everybody knows that dual-function storage and cozy bedding make a dorm room livable. Ironically, if you are looking for cool dorm stuff for guys you’ll have trouble finding many items that are inspiring.
Being a decorator-mom that I am, I had a hard time finding guys’ dorm bedding, storage, and furniture for my son with any personality. I guess, because guys are not as vocal as girls when it comes to their dorm rooms, they are being almost ignored by the retailers. Who cares if every guy’s room looks the same? Well, some of them do, they just don’t say it.
Gratifyingly, I found some things for your guy’s dorm room!
That’s, of course, after spending hours going through online stores, trade shows, and catalogs. But since I think I saved you some legwork, here enjoy my latest finds:
Bedding for guys’ dorm room
Do you like denim? Then obviously you can’t go wrong with this great coverlet. Deep blue with contrasting ivory stripes will make dorm room decorating fun and easy to use.
In case you want to cozy up with this soft weathered denim use a completely reversible set for the flexibility of changing the look each day.
Want a rustic feel? This classic black-and-red lumberjack plaid is accented with cable knit pillows, making this masculine duvet cover perfect for a rustic feel.
In crisp shades of grey, black and a pop of red, the oversized plaid brings an urban feel to the room.
Oops! Forget about white sheets! Since they are hard to maintain just get this navy diamond pattern coverlet and decorative pillows of crisp navy blue.
In crisp shades of grey, blue and a pop of green, the oversize plaid reminds of the days on the beach.
Dorm stuff that is also functional
Use this magazine rack for desktop or hang it on the wall with magnets. It is cool in any color, bright or gray. In fact, you can also use it for your rental apartment.
This is where function and decor unite! Firstly, notes and lists can be written on the front surface; secondly, rear compartments hold a phone, mail, pads; in addition, metal hooks at the bottom hold keys, scarves, bags, etc; finally, stainless and whiteboards are magnetic. Available in: real bamboo dry·erase, white magnetic dry·erase (comes with 3 strong rare earth magnets), and magnetic stainless dry·erase.
Cool and creative storage for a dorm room
These decorative storage boxes are cool and have a lot of character. They are made of fiber cardboard with harness leather detail. They sell them in sets of 4.
Getting organized with this neutral, retro decorative storage boxes system gives you extra seating and storage in one. Clear your clutter under the black lid of this collapsible canvas container. For those who appreciate a creative design, it is a true find. A cute design printed in black with a television image is really cute. In addition, when fully expanded, it fits perfectly on your shelf. It also folds flat if you need to store it and save space.
This tote is, supposedly the strongest Shower Bag out there! It holds over-sized bottles, like shampoo and shaving cream, in the main area. And while the space for the bottles is separate the pockets can hold various things like your toothbrush, razor, floss, toothpaste, and more! Not to mention that it has an easy carry handle. And for a not-exactly-neat-freak, it has the most durable extra strong construction.
This portable dorm closet is convenient and easy to handle. For starters, you can just put your clothes. And then you can lift it up and transfer clothes to the bag or suitcase. Tada! You are ready to go. With a large enough suitcase or bag, you can simply pack for college and then have your clothes all set to hang once you move into your dorm room.
