Let’s face it…dorm life is a sweet and sour experience that, if missed, is well, missed. Aside from the unknowns of roommates, privacy, and noise control, we do have the ability to add sugar to the situation and design a dorm room to accommodate most of our needs. One being, ironically, to increase the space of a very small space. The average square footage of a college dormitory is approximately 12′ x 19′, and with two people, that’s pretty tight. Solution? Create a loft for your bed to increase the space for a study or sitting area. Sweet.
