If your child is going to college and moving into a dorm room this year then you might be wondering what they need to take. From the essentials like a comfy bed and a pan to cook in, to those home comforts like a picture of the dog and a box of their favorite cookies. Little touches can really make their new dorm room feel welcoming like some window film.
Once you have bought all the essentials, you might be wondering how to tackle decorating your child’s new dorm room. Here are just a few things to remember when moving them into their dorm…
Moving away from home can be a daunting experience so make sure that you have a few home comforts is not only great for settling your child in but also so your child feels at home in their new room.
One way to make sure that they really do feel comfortable in their new room is buying them a Tempur Mattress. With memory foam, muscle and joint support, as well as outstanding quality, they will have a great night’s sleep every single night.
A Tempur Mattress can make them feel as comfortable as possible and have a great quality night’s sleep which will leave them refreshed and ready for the next day. A comfortable natural memory foam pillow and cute sheets will make their new bed feel welcoming and comforting too.
Whilst you might find yourself packing everything under the sun into your car ready for the journey to university, it is important that you remember to pack the practical items that will be essential for your child.
This can be everything from storage boxes for shoes and bags, to hangers for the backs of doors. This will allow them to make the most out of their space and have everything they need to be organized into the right sections. Another great thing to pack is spare light bulbs, bin liners, and a screwdriver. Although not necessary straight away, having spare light bulbs will cover any that break or are faulty which saves them from sitting in the dark.
Getting Through The First Year
For many, moving away from home can be a struggle not only because everything is strange and new but also because you are living out of your comfort zone. One way to make sure that your child feels comfortable in their new home is to send them with food, snacks, and symbols of home. This might be photos for the walls, momentous of home or even a candle that smells familiar. These small touches can really help to get them through the first year.
Bright And Bold Colours
In order to make their room feel extravagant, unique and perfect, you could think about adding a pop of color here and there. From bright colored cushions to fairy lights and bunting (dependent on their taste), adding bright colors can make their room feel a little more exciting and disguise the fact that it might be a university flat with a standard wardrobe and bed.
Embrace your child’s move to college even if it feels daunting. In doing so you will be able to help them move in, make them feel comfortable in their new room and be a great support for them back at home.
