Sheets, towels, clothes… It looks like you're all set to head to your new dorm room. Exciting times ahead! However, you might be forgetting about what would definitely become your coolest sidekick: a mini fridge!
This practical appliance can take your #StudentLife to the next level and help you turn an impersonal dorm room into a home away from home, as well as bringing you several more benefits.
As for size, budget and design, you're really spoilt for choice: you can find a ton of different modern and retro mini fridges here.
These compact appliances can be handy in many scenarios, but let's focus on the benefits that they'd bring you in a dormitory.
A mini fridge won't take over your dorm room
Trust us: we know the importance of space in dormitories! Since these rooms are usually designed to only fit your essentials and there's already so much that you're planning on bringing in yours, everything must count.
A mini fridge, however, won't take up a lot of space at all, so you really don't need to worry about it;
Plus, because they're available in lots of different sizes, it won't be hard to find one that can fit in the most space-optimizing spot, whether that be next to your nightstand, inside a cupboard or even on top of a desk.
Choosing a quirky or retro mini fridge can make your dorm room look more homely and truly 'yours'
The fact that most dorm rooms look the same doesn't exactly help against that nostalgic feeling that you can experience once the novelty excitement wears off. That's why it's important to turn your dorm room into a proper home away from home!
As well as pictures, posters and other decorative elements, a one-of-a-kind mini fridge can help you refurbish your dorm and take it from basic cookie-cutter room to your cozy bedroom;
Choosing a quirky model like one in your favorite color or a vintage mini fridge is also an opportunity to showcase your good taste and unique personality.
