It can be among the college student’s worst nightmares: the phone rings and the voice on the other end says, “Great news, Honey. We’re coming to visit and we’re almost there!” Aaaargh, the parents are coming, the parents are coming! What’s a dorm room dweller to do? First, take a deep breath. Second, take inventory: what needs cleaned or disposed of? Third, do the math: how much time do you have to clean up your act? And finally, thank your lucky stars if you have University Loft student furniture in your residence hall dorm room or student apartment.
Why? Well, for starters, University Loft furniture for students maximizes your dorm room or student living space because it’s ultra-customizable. Need to create space in a hurry? Simply reconfigure your student beds into one of several bunk-bed style layouts. Or, if you need to create hidden under-bed space, de-bunk your bunks!
Next, if your desk and dresser drawers aren’t already crammed full, load ’em up. University Loft student desks and dressers feature English dovetail joint construction, which means that your drawers will hold up under the most extreme loading conditions. Better yet, the drawers feature full-extension drawer glides. This means you can hide clutter (or even incriminating evidence of a recent party) all the way in the back of each drawer! By the way, each drawer is rated to hold up to 100 lbs. of…stuff.
If you still can’t get rid of your clutter, knock on the door of the dorm room next door and ask your neighbors for some temporary storage space. Just make sure their parents aren’t visiting, too. Otherwise, it’s every student for him or herself!
