It’s that most wonderful time of the year when we get to pack our kids off to school. If you’ve got a university-bound student and they’ll be living on their own for the first time this year, why not spoil them a bit with some cool dorm room pieces.

Dorm rooms are notoriously small and devoid of personality. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be turned into a relaxing sanctuary or stylish study space. Because of their size, multifunctional furniture is a must.

Instead of a standard bedside table, think outside the box and use a kitchen cart, a filing cabinet or a repurposed locker. This adds lots more storage potential.

These small spaces really work hard. Students have a lot of stuff, so be sure to send your kid off with some good storage options. Covered boxes and oversized baskets are a great way to contain the mess and keep the space neat and conducive to studying. After all, a tidy space really has a positive effect on mental wellness.

And for our final tip, we really suggest changing out the light fixtures. Hang a dramatic pendant or get a pretty table top lamp. It will really help beautify the space and set the tone for relaxing evenings.


These new Zenza table lamps let off a warm glow and create the most beautiful cascading light patterns around your room. Check out our online store, or call us for even more selection (416-778-8778).


Wishing all the students out there – and their hard working parents – a smooth transition into the school year.
