While everyone is adjusting to a new normal by wearing face masks every day, the global pandemic has also brought on other new challenges, which include virtual remote learning for some schools and colleges.
If you’re a college student who is now diving headfirst into virtual learning, especially in a new space (yes, even if it’s your childhood home), Bed Bath & Beyond has created a brand new shopping experience just for you.
Bed Bath & Beyond’s new College From Home page features everything you need to completely outfit a study-from-home space.
Once you navigate to this new page, not only will you see top-rated essentials — think expandable standing desks, filing cabinets, tech accessories and more — but the page allows you to search by three room styles compiled by Decorist’s design team, including Chill Camp Vibes, Low-Key Bohemian or Modern Glam.
Once you click on your favorite style, the page populates everything you need to complete your space — it’s like having an interior designer do all the work for you.
To find out your personal style before designing, you can opt to take the decorating style quiz that can help narrow down your options when building out your new college-from-home area. And if you do want a professional’s touch, Bed Bath & Beyond teamed up with Decorist to offer online interior decorating services.
With more people adjusting to a new type of work or learning environment this year, searches on Bed Bath & Beyond’s site have increased more than 200 percent for desk and office chairs compared to the same period last year, as noted in a press release from the retailer.
These work and study-from-home setups aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, which is why designing a comfortable space will help foster productivity and a sense of “normalcy” for you — whatever that may be.
And while you’re shopping for college gear at Bed Bath & Beyond between now and Sept. 30, you can receive 20 percent off your entire purchase each time you shop. All you have to do is sign up for the *free* College Savings Pass.
