Dorm Shared Spaces Inspiration

Moving away to attend college is a big step in life. Whether you are choosing to share an apartment or live in the dorms on campus, it is likely that you will share certain living spaces in your home away from home. From bathrooms to communal lounges, there is a lot to consider when it comes to furnishing and stocking your new living quarters. At PBteen, we have the dorm shared spaces inspiration to get you off on the right start.


Getting to know your new roommates is an important first step when moving into your new apartment or dorm room. What better way to relax and get acquainted than in a lounge setting. Creating a polished theme within your lounging space is easy when placing a black and white color scheme within the room. Regardless of the furnishings you use within your lounge area, choosing soft faux fur slipcovers in white creates a cohesive look throughout the room. Accenting the room with gold throw pillows, lounge chairs and floor lamps brings the glitz and glamour to your design. Finish off your polished themed lounge setting with pops of color by using throw pillows or decorative art throughout the space.


If you are looking for a more universal setting for lounging, opting for a lush preppy themed lounge may be right up your alley. Creating the preppy theme begins when you choose furnishings such as a generous sized sectional sofa or seating center. Accenting your furnishings with throws and pillows in bright colors offers an inviting feel throughout the lounge setting. Placing framed prints in white or blacked finished frames complements the theme for all to enjoy.


Setting up a universal study space should be done with comfort and productivity in mind. With the many hours that goes into studying while away at college this is one room where our dorm shared space inspiration really comes in handy. Choosing a sit and stand desk gives you the freedom to work on all types of projects in a comfortable position. Placing decorative chairs in fun shapes and designs brings the study space to life. Dressing up your desk with glam desk accessories offers a sophisticated air to the room without going overboard. Placing one of our golden finished task lamps in your study space lets you workday or night with adequate lighting. Accenting your study space with metallic rugs brings the whole design together for a finished look to be proud to show off.


Sharing bathrooms and shower spaces may take a little getting used to when you first move into your first apartment or dorm. We have you covered with the shower essentials you need. Using our shower caddies gives you the peace of mind of knowing you have everything in hand when heading down to the shower. No more forgotten shampoos, soaps or other bathing accessories you need. The shower caddies are available in a wide range of color and design options to appeal to your own personal tastes. With deep pockets and drawstring closures, never fear losing or leaving important shower accessories behind.


This may be the first time you have had the responsibility of doing your own laundry, or you may be quite accustomed to the task, but sharing laundry facilities is quite different when you are away from home. With the laundry essentials we offer, washing and drying your clothes is never a major hassle. Our laundry bags work well in your dorm room or apartment as hampers to keep clutter to a minimum. The generous size of the laundry bags allows you to keep detergents and softeners close by when heading to the laundromat or communal laundry center in the dorms. The durable handles make carrying easy. The compact design of our laundry bags gives you the ability to store them away between uses with ease. So, go ahead and take comfort in knowing you have what you need with our dorm shared spaces inspiration.
