Looking for ideas on how to spruce up a dorm room? Try adding organizational pieces like drawer carts, garment racks and storage benches to your dorm room. Or spruce things up with a headboard and some new comfy bedding. There’s so much you can do, even with a small space.

And when you’re finished decorating with new furniture, don’t forget the lighting. Amazon has great deals on Kasa smart light bulbs ($18 for 2) and Kasa smart light strips ($20 after coupon). These smart lights can be controlled by an Amazon Echo smart speaker ($60) — another smart dorm-room buy.

Below, the best dorm-room furniture for back to school.
