Creating the ideal dormitory room Tips to help make the transition easier
With the school year getting set to start at university and college campuses across the country, Canadian Tire has some tips to help prepare students moving away from home and provide peace of mind for parents preparing to empty their nest.
• Furniture and accessories in a dorm room can be sparse so keep that in mind when creating the shopping list. Try researching products online and if possible, plan a visit to the residence first to see what's needed and what will work best.
• Ready-to-assemble desks and book shelves are perfect for students who are moving away and if ordered online, can be sent directly to the student's dorm to avoid loading down the vehicle.
• Adequate lighting is a must for students and dorm lights are not always the best. A desk lamp and extra
light bulbs will come in handy.
