What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

College is just around the corner for students everywhere, which means it’s time to plan the move to your new college city and start making memories that will last a lifetime. The first and most important thing you’ll need to start shopping for before you hit the college campus is dorm room essentials.

It’s no secret that most dorm rooms are typically small and cramped, but there are so many options available for you to create a comfortable and enjoyable space that you’ll find hard to leave when you have to get up for that 8 AM lecture.

Although most dorm decorations seem to be geared towards girly styles and decorations, this decorating guide is just like Saturday--it’s strictly for the boys! You want your dorm room to be a comfortable and fun place to hang out, which is why turning it into a styled up man cave will make it your favorite spot to bring your friends, veg out, and watch some sports any day of the week. With OCM’s high quality products, you’ll transform that boring freshman dorm into the ultimate spot to party, study, and live. 

The key to creating the perfect freshman dorm space for you and your friends is to find pieces that speak to you while also preparing you for the ups and downs of a hard-working freshman year. We have all the tips and tricks you need to design your dream man cave while saving you the time and money that it takes to search everywhere else for the perfect products. 

Catch those zzz’s in your man cave’s new bedding

Let’s get started with every dorm’s biggest focal point--the bed! Other than in the classroom, your bed is one of the places you’ll spend most of your time throughout your freshman year of college, especially when you can get a chance to sleep in. You want to be sure you have the comfiest bedding and bed accessories so you can get a restful sleep each night that will prepare you for a long day of studying and classes. 

Just because you’re creating the perfect dorm man cave doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort and quality! OCM offers so many different beddings options from sheets to comforters so you can mix and match to find your perfect combination. 

If you’re overwhelmed by all of the options, OCM also offers value paks that have every bedding essential you need, taking the tough decision out of the equation!

If you are deciding to go the mix and match route, the first item you’ll need are a quality set of sheets that make crawling into bed after a long day worth it. OCM offers a wide variety of colors and types to choose from at reasonable prices, so you’ll be able to find the perfect set for you without breaking the bank.

OCM offers extra comfortable mattress pads and fleece blankets that fit perfectly over a twin XL dorm bed so you can add some additional cushion to those run of the mill twin beds that come with each room.

Blankets 

Who doesn’t love a good cozy blanket on their bed? Like we said earlier, just because you’re designing your dorm room man cave doesn’t mean it can’t have some ultra cozy accents here and there. If we’ve learned anything from college, finding little things that make your day a little better will help immensely. Crawling into bed with one of OCM’s amazing blanket options will do just that time and time again.

No matter what route you choose to go, posters will always add a layer of individuality to any room, even if you are sharing it with another person. 

Organization and Storage
