While college kids aren't known for being quite as concerned about the overall style and appearance of their rooms, the fact remains that buying good college dorm bedding is important. A dorm room will be home for a while, and making sure that it's comfortable and at least a bit of your own is important. Luckily, there are plenty of bedding options available that make it easy to get comfortable. There are a few things to remember when you're buying bedding, whether you're doing it for yourself or for your kids. Here are just a few things to remember to help make it easy.
Most college dorm bedding will need to be relatively small in terms of size. Twin, full, and full XL bunk beds are among the most common options, and finding a good set of bedding in that style is important. Fitted corners are obviously preferred so that the bedding doesn't slip, and in most cases deep pockets will be all that you need. These fit mattresses up to sixteen inches thick. Any mattress thicker than that will require extra deep pockets, but the odds of needing these for a college dorm mattress is slim. Still, it's important to think about it.
Durability matters when you're buying college dorm bedding. There's no way to avoid the fact that no matter what, the bedding is going to take some abuse. Spilled drinks, dropped food, dirty shoes, and numerous other things will occur to a college bed. With that in mind, most dorm bedding is made from durable one hundred percent cotton and is around three hundred thread count. This is affordable and durable, and also designed to stand up to plenty of washings without losing its comfort or its color. In other words, it's a smart purchase well worth thinking about.
Color may not matter to everyone but it's still worth considering, and you'll be able to find college dorm bedding in almost any color you can imagine. It's important to note that just because it may say 'college dorm', that doesn't mean it's not a perfect fit for a kid's room in your home as well. Designed for bunk beds or for smaller beds, these bedding sets are the perfect option for dorms and kids' rooms. And best of all, most of the best bedding options are made in America. That lets you buy with pride as well as confidence.
