Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I have a niece that has ADHD and is a monster (7th grade). I got her this for her birthday and my bro said it has actually helped her focus a bit more. Try it out, pretty cheap ad doesnt hurt!

You can always replace the fluorescent tube with a warmer color temp. Its a dorm so its probably a 4000K lamp. Going to a 3000k lamp will help with the warmth.

But beyond that, I think for dorm rooms its best to use lots of small light sources as opposed to say a single cheap floor uplight. But if you are looking for the cheapest and simplest solution, getting a floor lamp is the way to go.

But Like I said, I think lots of individual sources of light make a room feel cozier than one bright lamp.

Get a salt lamp.

Get some command hooks and hang christmas lights.

Put LED tape light behind your TV or run it across the wall for RGB lighting.
These tetris lamps are cool.

I guess it really just depends on your style and the space.

The downside to using lots of different light sources is its a pain to turn them off and on. However, you can get wifi outlets for pretty cheap of Amazon...then you can turn all your stuff off and on with your phone. Or you can program them using the timer function to automatically turn off and on.

Couldn't you just buy something that moves around so that the sensor can detect movement?

Some kind of desk motion toy like this thing, this other thing, or that thing.

Purchase Link:

I have to say, this is a ridiculous for such a simple toy. You can buy ferrofluid much cheaper, this seems to only have knob that moves a magnet closer and further from the fluid.

Here's a $26 version of the same thing:
