Moving into a dorm room and have no idea what to get for your dorm room bed? Keep reading for the best dorm room bedding essentials.
I would argue that your dorm room bed is one of the most important things you make sure you get right. That might be because sleeping is my favorite thing to do – but I digress.
Your dorm is your home away from home and you want to make sure you are comfortable. Today I’m sharing the best dorm room bedding essentials to have the comfiest bed on campus.
1. Tempurpedic Mattress Pad
Dorm beds aren’t even really “beds”. They are uncomfortable springs covered with a bit of fabric.
The best thing you can do is get a nice mattress pad. My sister was gifted a Tempurpedic mattress pad and she loved it! She would always tell me how all of her friends would pile in her bed after a night out – it was that comfy.
If you don’t want to splurge on the Tempurpedic mattress pad, check out this more affordable option with great reviews.
Your comforter sets the tone for your whole room. I always recommend getting a neutral one to lighten the room and it will go with all your decor. Definitely get a full or queen size to cover the side of your bed. I made the mistake of getting a Twin XL and you could see everything underneath my bed in my dorm – not cute!
3. Cooling Sheets
These are cooling sheets which are great especially if your dorm room doesn’t have air conditioning.
Jersey sheets are great to get for dorms because they stretch a lot of go over the mattress topper. These come in over 10 colors.
4. Silk Pillowcases
Silk pillowcases are a must if you don’t have them already. I love the ones from Kitsch. This one comes with a silk sleep mask and scrunchie too. Win-win!!
5. Heated Blanket
You can’t do without a nice heated blanket for the chilly months.
6. Mattress Pad Cover
A mattress pad cover is a must to protect your mattress topper. It protects against spills, bed bugs, and other things from getting to your mattress topper.
7. Pillow Spray
Dr. Teals is a great option if you want a pillow spray that will knock you out. After it went viral on TikTok, I had to try it and it def does the trick haha!
8. Sleep Mask
A sleep mask is a must!! It will come in handy for afternoon naps or those hungover mornings where the glaring sun is just not it.
