HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Summer is coming to a close and that means college students are moving in for the first time or returning to school in just a few short weeks. Dorm rooms historically haven't been particularly glamorous but colleges and universities are making vast updates to their housing options to attract more students. Even with the addition of private rooms and apartment-style living, the traditional dorm room still exists. This type of room usually consists of bunk beds, a couple desks and dressers and they don’t have a lot of frill, or privacy, for that matter. For those who live in a dorm room such as this, creating a space with a bit of privacy isn’t completely out of the question.
We have worked with students across the country to create this privacy by adding curtain tracks and curtains to their bunk beds. Adding curtains to a bunk bed can create a comfortable study space and help eliminate distractions (like your roommate).The curtains can be pulled closed to keep light from coming in, especially for any mid afternoon naps! If eclipse curtains are used, they not only block out light, they help absorb sound. That's a win-win!
For a project like this, our ceiling-mounted curtain tracks will work to transform your bunk or loft into your private space. These tracks can be installed directly into the ceiling if you have a loft, you can use clamps if your room has a drop ceiling, or you can add them in the frame of a bunk bed to cover the bottom bunk. After the track is installed, add our Bunk Bed Privacy Curtains. This awesome fabric is not only machine washable, it also blocks 98% of light. They are 48 inches wide and 36 inches tall and are available in beige, navy and black. But if you need different sizing, simply give us a call and we can make custom curtains for you!
