I love all things that do double duty. Whether that’s a reversible top or a fashion item that doubles as a decorative piece when you’re not wearing it, anything that can serve multiple purposes is going to save you money and make you feel more creative. If there’s ever been an argument to step away from the Kindle and actually buy a real life book, this is it – consider how much a pretty coffee table book can add to you apartment.
Decorating in college isn’t easy. You don’t want to spend a lot of money beautifying a space you won’t be in forever and you don’t really have enough room to really go to town. That’s why coffee table books are so ideal. You can read them first, then use them as space-efficient pieces to add color and interest to your room. If you don’t have a coffee table, try displaying them on your desk and stacked on your nightstand.
Need some recommendations? Here are some of the books that’ll feel right at home in your space. The content ain’t bad either.
