For many families, sending kids to college is a monumental step. As parents, we want them to be prepared and have everything they need to succeed while they are away, including some of the comforts of home. One of the most important purchases for students living on campus is college dorm bedding. Fortunately, there are a variety of options to fit almost any budget and any situation.
Because they must accommodate students of all sizes, most dorms feature extra-long twin beds. This is important to consider as you look for the right teen bedding. Many stores carry special back-to-school sets that include everything you need to sleep comfortably in a dorm: a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a pillow case, and a comforter or blanket. These sets come in a wide range of colors, styles, and fabrics to help your student personalize and sleep comfortably in their space.
It is recommended that you buy two or more sets of sheets for the school year so that your student always has a fresh set on hand in case they are too busy to do laundry for a few weeks! The best fabric choices depend on your personal preference. 100% cotton is soft and stain-resistant, but it can also wrinkle more easily or shrink when it is washed. Poly/cotton blends, while not as soft as 100% cotton, are both durable and stain-resistant, making them a great choice for super-busy college students.
Many parents purchase foam mattress pads or covers to enhance the comfort of the dorm bed. You can also add fun extras such as colorful throw pillows or fuzzy blankets to brighten the space. Purchasing the right bedding will help your college student get a good night’s sleep and feel right at home.
