Make Mirrors Do Double Duty

Many dorm rooms won’t have mirrors (or anything beyond the basic furniture). If this happens to your student, be ready to add a mirror.

He’ll need it for grooming and checking that he looks good. Because the guys do want to look good too, you know.

I’d suggest one dresser or wall mirror and a door mirror. He’ll want to take that last look on his way out, to make sure it’s all good. In a pinch, the full length mirror is the way to go.

But a mirror can do more for his dorm room. It will reflect light, making the room just a little brighter. A mirror can also make the room feel larger.

All good reasons to pick up a nice, affordable wall mirror!
