4 Student Housing Mistakes to Avoid

When you’re in the market for college furniture, there can be many pitfalls to dodge. When you purchase university furniture, you don’t want to have to replace it in a few short years. The following are 4 student housing mistakes to avoid.

Mistake Number 1

Letting Your Friends Jump on Your Bed

greenfieldNaturalTwin_0067 72This is not a problem if you have the Open Loft Bed or Bunk Beds because there is just no room to jump. One will end up smashing his head on the ceiling or top of the upper bunk. Loft beds from University Loft Company are safe and study towering up to allow room beneath for storage and a desk. The bunk beds can be stacked traditionally, but they can also be placed in creative ways just to be different or to get more space out of your room. Now, a twin bed could be problematic especially if things start to get a little rowdy. (I know of a couple of youngsters who ditched their evening classes to jump on the bed and make silly faces in the mirror. Let’s just say they were having cabin fever of the lecture halls and used this activity as an outlet – I don’t judge.) The way the twin beds set, there is room beneath for a couple of two drawer chest side-by-side. University Loft creates college furniture that saves space and allows for much storage.

Mistake Number 2

Buying Cheap Imitation Furniture

Imitation jewelry dazzles at first and takes on the look of real gold, real diamonds and real gems, but after wearing them for a few times, their dazzle fades and their shine dulls. They may even break. Purchasing student housing furniture that looks like University Loft may be good for a while but, like imitation jewelry, the dazzle with fade and the shine will dull and sooner than you like, it will break down. You will end up back at square A needing to purchase more furniture for the student residence hall. University Loft college furniture has survived floods and hurricanes and has come out still standing. It is built to last.

Mistake Number 3

Purchasing Bulky Student Furniture

Our furniture is built like a tank, but can also be easily reconfigured with our Tool-Less System™ to offer you a space-saving advantage. Twin beds can raise up to junior loft beds adding extra storage space under the bed. You can also take it all the way up to the top with a loft bed and place a podium desk and three drawer chest right under the bed. There are so many creative ways to make the most out of your room.

Mistake Number 4

Doing Business with an Unethical Company

Know that the company from which you purchase your student housing furniture is one with a good reputation of high standards and ethics. University Loft Company is that company. Our customers are satisfied with our service and product. Our customers are important to us. We don’t just sell furniture; we build relationships.
