It is important to have all of the right supplies before arriving at the dorm. Arriving at school can be a busy and stressful time so having everything prepared before arrival makes settling in much easier. Some of the key materials to have for a dorm room is the right dorm bedding. The student moving in will want to sleep comfortably on their first night in the dorms so getting there and setting up the bed should be the first step. It is important to find out what size the bed is from the housing authority before buying the bedding. Dorm beds are sometimes twin size but some have full sized beds. Dorm beds also come in extra long sizes for tall people. Once a person knows what size they bed is they can find coordinating bedding that will fit the bed like a glove. Bed sets are usually the easiest way to get all of the bedding that is needed. A bed in a bag usually contains a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a blanket or quilt and two pillow cases. A bed in a bag is also easy to carry and transport to the dorm as it is all packaged together into a neat case.
Making A Dorm Bed More Comfortable
Dorm life can sometimes be very spartan and one of the aspects of the spartan life style is the bed. Dorm beds are often of very utilitarian construction and have a thin mattress on the top of the bed. If a person is used to sleeping on a thick and comfortable mattress it can be difficult to adjust to this thin and flimsy sleeping surface. An uncomfortable sleeping surface can result in bad sleeping patterns which are not good for a new student trying to do their best. Fortunately there are ways to make the bed in the dorm more comfortable so sleep can be found much more easily. Most bedding stores sell mattress pads that can be used to add another layer of comfort to the bed. Mattress pads that are stuffed with goose down or a down alternative filler will put a fluffy layer of padded comfort on the top of the flimsy dorm mattress. These mattress pads fit right over the existing mattress for a good snug fit and can transform the dorm room sleeping experience.
