Getting your Dorm Room ready this Semester

 In Self Storage

Fall semester is on its way. If you are like most you will be moving into a new dorm room or small apartment for your semester at college. To help you with the process of getting organized and moving into your new dorm room you can trust us at All American Self Storage in San Mateo to help. Whether you need a storage unit for your extra items or need some organization tips like the ones listed below we are here to help.


Add much Needed Floor Space

Dorm rooms are limited when it comes to square footage. You can make more floor space available to you by using bed risers. Bed risers create enough room under your bed to store totes that can carry extra school supplies, clothing, and accessories. Bed risers can easily be purchased at most home goods stores.


Temporary and Removable Wall Storage

Most dorm rooms come with a bed, desk, and a dresser. This doesn’t give you a lot to work with when it comes to storage. Removable wall storage can help you organize your smaller accessories. Stick on Pods are made to hold small things like make-up and toiletries. You can easily put these on the inside of bathroom cabinets or next to your vanity. Command Hooks are perfect for hanging anything from clothing accessories to wall art.


Hidden Storage

The trick to keeping your dorm room organized is to have a variety of hidden storage options. Over-the-door organizers are a great solution when it comes to storing the smaller accessories you need in your dorm room. Ottomans are great for lounging and storing extra blankets or larger accessories within them.


Dresser Organization

Most dorm rooms only give you a small dresser to fit the majority of your clothing in. Don’t let your clothing storage situation get out of hand. Making your own or buying drawer dividers are a great way to organize all of the clothing you plan on storing in your dresser.
