Dorm Bookcases + Media

First Apartment Bookcases and Media Furniture

Beyond the dorm, stepping out into your own first apartment is an exciting milestone. Many of the items you’ve collected throughout your dorm years will easily transfer over, such as your window treatments, rugs and bedding items, but you may find that when you make the big move, you need some basic pieces of furniture to really turn your first apartment into a home. One of your most needed items, especially if you’re in grad school, may be first apartment bookcases and media furniture. Specially designed to maximize your space in your new place, these versatile items give you room to organize everything from your books to your files without taking up a wealth of floor space. Shop PBteen for storage and furniture solutions that are sure to help you make your first apartment a success.


A simple, medium-sized bookcase cube may be all you need when you first move in. With enough space to place textbooks and other books, there is room to place bins or cubbies to help store personal items and necessities. If you find that you need more space to store everything from folders to sports equipment, perhaps consider a bookcase or display set. With these types sets, you can stack up smaller units exactly how you’d like the configuration. If you’re short on floor space, you can easily stack units that go up the wall, rather than across, allowing you plenty of room to not only store accessories, but to showcase decor and decorative items as well. These stacking sets can be either small or large, with the larger sets having enough cubes and cubbies to use up an entire wall’s worth of space – but leaving you plenty of floor space to stretch out and add other furniture.


For media solutions, there are stacking sets completely devoted to media use only, with enough room to place a flat-screen TV or large monitor in the middle of the set. With these sets, you have enough room for your television, video games and other media needs. If gaming is an important part of your life, consider a gaming console specifically meant for video games and their accessories.


Tower storage units and shelves are also a great idea. While these come as one unit and are not stackable, their height allows you plenty of room and space. These work well not only in your hallway or living space, but also in your bathroom or bedroom to store toiletries and other personal necessities.
