Command™ Model has formally named you their first Director of Dorm Design. What are an important ideas to bear in mind when adorning a small area corresponding to a dorm room?
It is all about ensuring that issues are doing double responsibility and using your actual property — not simply your ground area, however your wall area, your door area. [It’s] doing issues which are double responsibility. If you are going to carry some further seating in, herald a storage ottoman. That approach, it is seating, nevertheless it’s additionally storage, store-organization. I unintentionally mentioned that earlier, and I used to be like, “I simply made up a brand new phrase: store-organization.” [Laughs]
Then using your wall area … The beauty of Command™ merchandise is you’ll be able to cling issues on the wall with out leaving harm, and you do not want any instruments. That is one con a couple of dorm room — I am certain there’s lots — however the greatest one for me is that you just’re not allowed to color. You are not allowed to place any holes within the wall, so mainly, they’re like, “You may’t have any persona on this room in any respect,” however with Command™ strips, you’ll be able to.
For years, that is all I considered them as — simply as strips, in order that approach you’ll be able to cling up posters or small issues. However they really now have strips that may maintain as much as 20 kilos. They’ve hooks that’ll maintain as much as 15. You may really put up little cabinets, you’ll be able to put up mirrors, clocks, dry-erase boards — not simply posters now. You may actually make your area your individual.
One factor that I have been recommending is [that] you’ll be able to’t paint the partitions, you’ll be able to’t put up wallpaper, however you’ll be able to put up cloth. Go to a material retailer and get a cool cloth that you just like in a print or a stable, and you should use Command™ strips to place it up on the high of the ceiling, and it creates good cloth panels on the wall. That approach, not solely are you able to get some shade and texture within the room, nevertheless it additionally helps with acoustics.
What are another distinctive methods to make use of Command™ Model merchandise in an area?
Like I used to be saying earlier than, Command™ Model is not nearly Command™ strips. They’ve merchandise that enable you cling and make the most of every kind of various issues.
Two of my favorites are the 20-pound strip, as a result of once more, you’ll be able to put up little cabinets, you’ll be able to put up these little troughs the place you’ll be able to arrange all of your toilet stuff and put it on the wall. Additionally, the hooks that you could cling your garments on, that you could cling your e-book bag on — they’re going to maintain as much as 15 kilos. You may line these up on the again of your toilet door or your dorm room door on the wall, and you may make the most of that actual property from high to backside, not simply left to proper.
