Why Buy a Dorm Trunk?

Getting everything from your child's bedroom to their dorm room isn't likely to happen. That doesn't mean your teen can't pack the essentials. Here are a few reasons a dorm trunk is a smart buy whether your teenager is a freshman or returning to school for their second year:

  • Dorm trunks make it easy to pack up clothes and personal belongings. If it fits in a trunk it will probably fit in their dorm room even if it is a tad undersized.
  • Dorm trunks do double-duty as in-closet storage for many students. Personal materials, passports, winter jackets and once-in-a-while shoes can all live comfortably in a trunk. You can even add organizers to make a trunk more functional.
  • Your student can use their trunk as a coffee table or piece of furniture. No need to buy furniture just for a semester when a sturdy trunk can take care of business and look cool in the process.

What Styles Are Available?

Stylish trunks make it easy for your teenager to turn their dorm room into a designer-inspired space. Here are a few go-to looks you can find at Pottery Barn Dorm today:

  • Natural wood trunks. These trunks add a modern touch to any dorm room. They're also durable enough that they can be used semester after semester without showing signs of wear.
  • Colorful styles. Natural birch is a great look for modern and mid-century dorm rooms, but some students prefer a little bit more color in their space.
