Is your kid about to graduate high school, leave home and enter the idealistic world? Well, if so, you have plenty of work to do in order to help her or him to prepare. And you and your kid have a long to-do list – from filing a FAFSA form to buying some of the dorm necessities. Also, you may be tempted to focus most of your attention on things such as start dates and tuition deadlines, but what goes in your dorm room of your kid is in fact very important. The decor can help her or him to organize, and provide reminders for homework due dates and make a focused environment. So, considering all that in mind, here are some unique decor ideas for helping your child start college off right:
- Dorm wall whiteboard
Once college starts your child will be busy, from running to class to attending social events to doing projects. By keeping reminders in plain view or jotting down notes rapidly will help your teen to stay organized. And for this reason, you should consider buying her or him a dry erase board. Since this product sticks to the wall and peels off with no trouble, making it perfect for dorm rooms that do not allow nails. Actually, without causing any damage the whiteboard is the easiest product to take off the wall.
And she or he won’t have problem remembering important dates with a whiteboard positioned over your child’s desk. Your teen can leave notes for her or his roommate.
- Whiteboard paint
Whiteboard paint is basically clear paint that turns any surface into a dry erase board. And while you can get the product in a clear version, your child still cannot use it on her or his dorm walls – altering or painting the dorm or room furniture is against university policy. Also painting a dry erase board wall with Remarkable is really nit trick.
But, you can paint it on other items, such as furniture. Is your teen bringing a table to school? Well, paint it so the table could act as a writing surface. And what about a bed tray? Your teen can jot notes on it at the same time as doing homework in her or his bed. Principally, anything else your student owns can become a whiteboard thanks to Whiteboard paint. And only paint the whiteboard on furniture you own – a lot of schools have provided dorms that come with desks, so leave the property of the university alone.
Certainly, check out the Ghost Whiteboard if you do want a whiteboard for the walls that is bigger than the foam Whiteboard. The transparent sheets follow the walls and come off clean – and that means no proration!
- Dry-erase calendar By getting a Weekly Whiteboard you can help your child keep her or his busy college schedule in order. This whiteboard is broken down by day, which allows your child to plan out the whole week. And you could hang the board somewhere in your child’s dorm where it is easy to see.
It is important in college to stay organized and on top of tasks, and it can help to hang whiteboard products in your child’s dorm.
