Walmart’s “Buy the Room” feature allows college bound students to quickly and easily select and order everything they need for their dorm room, including bedding, storage and decorations.

Introduced last year, the feature makes it possible to add groups of items to one’s cart with a single click.

Here is what three LHS students have to say about their favorite “Buy the Room” options:

 

 

 

 

 

Katelyn Peterson, senior

“I want to decorate my room [to be] very unique and simple at the same time.”
Favorite “Buy the Room” look: Floral Prep
“I prefer it because it has all my favorite colors in it.”
