One of the most important things to be organized in college is to keep your bedroom spotless, which can be very difficult with the size of college dorms. Finding good bedroom organization products that work for you is key and because I am obsessed with organizing my room, I’ve put together this post with some of my favourite dorm room storage ideas.
We all know that Amazon is the place to go for pretty much everything we need, and it really is the best place to find a huge variety of bedroom organization products. They also have amazing bedding and decoration items that you can find in this blog post: UNI BEDROOM IDEAS | THE BEST & CUTEST DECORATION UNDER £25.
For now, let’s focus on my favourite dorm room storage ideas and how I personally like organizing my room.
OUR FAVOURITE BEDROOM ORGANIZATION:
1. Storage Baskets
One of my favourite organization tips for bedroom is finding a place for everything, and if you can’t find a place for it, it might mean that the object doesn’t have a purpose anymore or you don’t need it. Storage baskets are great for bedroom organization because they hide stuff and make the room look decluttered.
These baskets are great for open shelves or drawers because they are nice to look at and you can use a basket for different categories such as uni stuff, stationery, clothes, etc.
Other storage baskets I recommend:
– Plastic baskets for thing such as makeup or cleaning products that could ruin fabric baskets.
– Patterned large baskets these are perfect if you have an open closet and want everything to look tidy and cute at the same time.
2. Drawer Dividers
Anyone who has drawers and uses them on a daily basis knows how messy and hard to keep tidy they are. I was BAD at keeping drawers tidy and functional until I started using drawer dividers.
Now my drawers look incredibly pretty and let’s not talk about my stationery drawer… just flawless. These are really cheap and they come in a lot of sizes which makes accommodating them to any drawer really easy.
This is one of my favourite dorm room storage ideas because it’s extremely easy and it will change your life big time.
3. Clothes Storage Bags
This is one of the best organization tips for bedroom if you have little to no space. I used to keep all my clothes in my suitcases in college and they took up a lot of valuable room.
These clothing storage bags are great for bedroom organization because they are cheap, will make it really easy to move in and out of your dorm room and they will save you a lot of room.
The reason I love to use these when organizing my room is that I can pack whatever I don’t wear and put them under the bed and forget about them for months.
Other storage bags I recommend:
– These Garment storage bags are great for delicate things such as suits or gowns that you can’t put under the bed but still want to have them properly stored.
– Extra Large Storage Bags are great dorm room storage ideas if you need to store duvets or big blankets.
4. Behind the Door Shoe Storage
I remember arriving in my college dorm and thinking: “where the heck am I going to put the 36 pairs of shoes I brought?”. Organizing my room in college was really challenging and I learned a lot of great organization tips for bedroom, and this is the one that literally changed my life.
These shoe storage things are not going to make your dorm room pretty but they will completely change your bedroom organization game.
They are super practical and will stop you from going crazy trying to figure out where to put your shoes without stepping on them every 2 minutes. And they are cheap, which is a must in college.
5. Rolling Cart
This might sound weird at first, but trust me, it’s one of the bedroom organization products I used the most. These rolling carts are perfect to keep things that you use on a daily basis and you need to have in a handy place.
I would keep some books and stationery, toiletries, chargers, things that I needed close to me and I didn’t want wandering around making the room look cluttered. This is genuinely one of my favourite organization tips for bedroom.
Other rolling carts I recommend:
– This smaller rolling cart is absolutely perfect to keep your toilet organized.
– This pink rolling cart is SO cute and perfect to double as a bedside table!
6. Makeup Desk Organizer
This is a bedroom organization product we should all use. This makeup desk organizer prevented me from having the makeup all over my dorm room desk, which wasn’t particularly big. They are really cheap and will make a huge difference in your room.
This is one of the most useful organization tips for bedroom that are not just for college girls but for anyone who has a lot of makeup and wants a clutter-free space.
This makes such a huge difference when organizing my room, it’s unbelievable!
7. Drawer Storage Unit
These storage units are incredibly useful if you don’t have much storage space. This is one of my favourite bedroom organization tips ever because they look really classy and clean and they can hold so much! They are perfect dorm room storage ideas for extra clothes, underwear, linens or towels… pretty much anything!
Don’t be afraid of investing in bedroom organization products such as this because they’ll come in really handy when you move out and need furniture for your first apartment!
Other dorm room storage ideas I recommend:
– This under-the-sink cabinet is perfect if you have your own bathroom but it’s still tiny.
– Smaller version of a drawer storage unit in case you just need a little bit of extra bedroom organization but don’t have much room.
8. Storage Ottoman
Storage ottomans are perfect dorm room storage ideas if bedroom organization is important for you but style is more important. They add extra seating if you like having your friends around, you can use them to store blankets, pillows, whatever you want really and they double as beautiful dorm room decoration pieces.
These are genuinely amazing bedroom organization pieces and they helped me massively when organizing my room!
Other Storage Ottomans I recommend:
– Same ottoman in grey, in case you are going for a different colour scheme for your dorm room storage ideas.
– This Cube Ottoman is perfect if you don’t want it as big or it looks too big in your dorm.
9. Jewelry Organizer
Jewelry is one of the most annoying things to keep organized because it’s so tiny and there are so many little pieces. When it comes to bedroom organization, especially in college, you want to find dorm room storage ideas that you can use in more than one way.
This Jewelry box is perfect to keep all your bits and pieces in one place when you are in your college room but it’s also perfect to use when you travel or go back home for the weekend.
Some of my favourite organization tips for the bedroom are always things that I can use outside of my college dorm or that will stay with me for a long time.
Other Jewelry Storage Units I recommend:
– This Jewelry Stand Holder is another lovely option if you don’t travel much or don’t like the idea of a jewelry box.
10. Clothes Rail
You probably won’t have much space for clothes in your college dorm, so here’s one of my favourite dorm room storage ideas that I still use on a daily basis. Clothing rails are great bedroom organization products because they are cheap, you don’t need tons of space and it will give you room for a lot of clothes.
This one has wheels which makes it very convenient if you need to move it around to clean, instead of having to take all the clothes off and then move it.
