Shop College Dorm Room Essentials

Your college kid is going to love choosing all the dorm-room essentials they need and you’re going to love shopping for everything on Rakuten, where you can get coupon codes for savings on your purchases from select merchants!

Going to college can be a nerve-racking time for students, so you’ll want to help their transition to college life go as smoothly as possible by outfitting their dorm room with all the cool gear to make it their home away from home. You have a lot of choices in college dorm decor, but your main consideration will be the size of the room. Is there enough space to put a bed, dresser and desk? Does your child have one roommate or more? A helpful option for maximizing space is under-bed storage. Another is shelving, but you’ll want to find out the dorm rules before installing shelves with hardware. There also has to be enough wall space for art and photos to personalize your child’s room, so consider purchasing removable hanging strips or damage-free hooks. Whatever you decide, be sure to shop through Rakuten for Cash Back on all the dorm supplies you buy for your college student!

Another dorm-room essential is sufficient lighting. Be sure to supply your child with adequate college dorm lights so they can study without worrying about eye strain. Space is a consideration, so think about compact desk lights or, if they have plenty of room, a tall corner lamp with bright bulbs. Creative students will adore an array of string lights, which come in different sizes, shapes and wattage, adding brightness and a touch of whimsy to their personal space. No matter what dorm-room supplies you and your child choose, be sure to go through Rakuten for promo codes to get great deals!
