    19 Products From Jet That'll Make Your Dorm Room Feel Like Home

    Because dorm decor doesn't have to begin and end with piles of dirty laundry and a few cheesy posters!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pack of four pretty melamine cereal bowls that prove cereal for dinner can look super classy.


    Price: $6.99

    2. A bright electric kettle perfect for whipping up a cup of coffee or tea (or soup??) during those late-night study sessions.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter to take with her to her dorm. Since she is not a coffee drinker, this is great for boiling water for her tea. Water boils pretty quickly and it's a really good size for one or two people." —Winelover

    Price: $18

    3. A Himalayan salt lamp to counteract that sterile dorm overhead lighting with a nice warm glow.


    Promising review: "I love the look of it and the dim light it provides. They also say that that the salt cleanses and deodorizes the air and can help with reducing allergies and asthma symptoms. I do not have allergies, nor do I have asthma, but I like the lamp anyway. I have one for each room. They give a nice dim light and a peaceful atmosphere to the room." —DCMunchkin

    Price: $16.40

    4. A simple hairpin leg laptop desk to add a pop of color to any problem set.


    Promising review: "We needed a writing desk for a small space in our office, and this one is perfect! Stylish, yet functional, and just the right size. Love the hairpin legs!" —Business Buyer

    Price: $50.15

    5. A set of two collapsible sequined storage cubes, because you're going to have to clean up your own shit now (and these will make even your clutter look glam).


    Price: $9.50

    6. A bedside storage caddy so you can keep your most valued confidantes (your phone, your snacks...) close at hand.


    Promising review: "I really like this item! It holds my iPad and is a great place to put the TV remotes. Now my night stand isn't cluttered with all those things. Perfectly hidden and doesn't stick out at all." —Lovescats16088

    Price: $17.70 (available in three colors)

    7. A wicker laundry basket with a removable canvas liner, because laundry is inevitable, but chaos is containable.


    Promising review: "This looks very nice and has gotten a few compliments from people who have it. I actually bought two — one for colors and one for whites — and they look great side by side. They are lightweight and easy to carry or you can remove laundry bag and just carry that." —chelbythesea

    Price: $17.06

    8. An industrial-style caged table lamp that's a major upgrade from the typical dorm-room desk light.


    Promising review: "Loved the size and color. Perfect as a desk lamp/nightstand lamp. Only con is I wish the shade were sturdier." —Jessica

    Price: $20.55

    9. A microfiber comforter and shams set in a beautiful print, because (pro tip!) prints hide the food stains better.


    Price: $14.88

    10. A shower caddy so you can tote your toiletries to and from the shower (thus ensuring none of your dorm-mates sneakily use any of your shampoo).


    Stay away from my DevaCurl, Lauren!

    Price: $13.99

    11. A vintage-inspired area rug to add a little polish (and a lot of color) to your dorm.


    It's 2' x 3', so it'll fit in pretty much any (temporary) home!

    Price: $24.35

    12. A cozy throw, because everyone needs a security blanket sometimes (and if it's got pompoms, so much the better).


    Price: $16

    13. A single-serving coffeemaker you can brew directly into your travel mug when you're late for class.


    Promising review: "The coffee brews like any other machine except there is no hot plate where the cup sits. The cup is insulated so coffee stays very warm without a hot plate. It brews then shuts off. Very clever design all the way around." —august41

    Price: $14.88

    14. A one-stop cookbook tailor-made for college students, because your needs are valid and your hunger is real!


    Price: $9.12

    15. A handy little sandwich grill for anyone who understands that melted cheese is an absolutely essential study tool.


    Promising review: "This sandwich maker is really neat. I have not yet made an actual sandwich in it because I am too busy making pancake bites in it. I can pour pancake batter in the wells, let it cook, and I have finger pancakes I can just dip in the syrup. I had one a long time ago that I made sandwiches in and loved it. Buy one, you will not be sorry." —purpleflowers50

    Price: $11.88

    16. A set of three adorable (and very convincing) faux succulents, because you're just learning to take care of yourself — it's too soon to take responsibility for actually-living plants!


    Price: $37.88

    17. A framed chalkboard that's a cute upgrade from the standard dorm-room dry erase.


    Price: $11.99

    18. A metallic pouf to provide all-important extra seating for parties. (Study parties, obviously!)


    Price: $46.48+ (available in gold and silver)

    19. A vintage-style mini fan, because nothing blows more than an overheated dorm room.


    Promising review: "We purchased two or these and then I purchased another two for bedrooms. I think they move air better than any fan I have owned and just as important they are attractive enough to add a bit of style to whatever room you use it in. My husband thought I was crazy for spending so much on a little fan, but than he felt the air output and said we needed more! We could not be happier with air flow or design." —McHillberry

    Price: $59.99
