A college dorm becomes your home away from home when you live on campus, so the right bedding is important to turn your room into a comfortable college hangout. Whether you’re a new Freshman or you’ve been around campus for a while, your bed is your retreat space after a tiring day of classes and social activities. So when you start back to school shopping, make finding the right bedding a priority. Bedding can totally change the look and feel of your dorm room and is an inexpensive way to show off your style and create a comfortable environment in your room. This article answers some of the most frequently asked questions about college dorm room bedding.

FAQs about Dorm Bedding:

What type of bedding do I need for my dorm?
Your bedding should include fitted and flat sheets, pillowcases, blankets and bedspreads or comforters. These can be purchased separately to create your own distinct style or as a complete college bed in a bag set which takes away all the guesswork. Make sure you purchase two or more sets of sheets and pillowcases. Having two sets means that you can change your sheets more often, eliminating the need to wash your sheets in order to have clean sheets. Since laundry typically isn’t a top priority for the average college student, let alone sorting different color loads, consider keeping laundry simple by having your bedding all in the same color family.  You’ll find a wide range of top quality, discount dorm bedding styles available in a variety of fun and colorful patterns, as well as numerous college sports bedding patterns featuring actual university colors and logos at Domestic Bin.

Is there a standard size for college dorm beds?
You will find that most college beds have extra-long twin mattresses to accommodate the needs of taller students and also to provide more lounging room since your bed in your dorm room is more than just a place to sleep, but also a place to lounge and study. A standard twin-size sheet is not long enough to fit an extra-long bed. The measurements of an extra-long twin bed mattress are 39 inches wide by 80 inches long which is 5 inches longer than standard twin beds. The good news is college dorm bedding is generally made for this particular length, so finding the right XL twin bedding is no longer a cumbersome task. When looking at the Domestic Bin site be sure to look for items labeled XL Twin.

What time of year should I purchase college dorm bedding?
The best time to shop for college dorm bedding is in the summer before school starts. Even though school might be the last thing on your mind during summer, you'll always be able to find the best selection of college bedding sets if you shop early. However, if you want new sheets or bedding for winter time, feel like changing our your décor, or need replacement bedding due to an unfortunate nail polish incident or laundry room theft, you can always find a wide selection online.

Is there anything I can do to make my dorm bed more comfortable?
Dormitory beds are not always the most comfortable beds in the world, so you may want to buy a mattress pad or mattress topper to make your bed more comfortable. Memory foam mattress pads or toppers designed for XL twin beds are by far the easiest way to convert your university issued bed into a 5 star hotel retreat. When purchasing bedding, look for higher thread count sheets and duvets. These are higher quality and longer lasting, but also feel better against your skin. Domestic Bin offers the extravagant softness of Egyptian cotton and smooth satin XL sheet sets to make your dorm bed feel luxurious. You may want to have different sheet sets for different seasons or different climates depending on where your school is located. Flannel, jersey knit, satin, and silk are just some of the choices to make your bed it’s most comfortable.
