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.
A mini fridge is easy to carry and install
When you move to your door room, there's always so much that you must try and cram into your parents' car, but a little mini fridge will not take up too much precious space in their trunk. It's also much lighter to carry than bigger fridges;
Dorm rooms haven't always got as many power outlets as you wish, so it can be a challenge to place your workstation and other appliances around them. However, because mini fridges are so compact and versatile, it'll be a breeze to find one that works for yours.
