Getting to Know the Dorm Bed

A Typical College Dorm BedThe dorm bed is a very utilitarian piece of furniture topped with a flimsy and slim mattress. Anyone who is used to sleeping on a thick and plush mattress in a sturdy bed frame will feel immediately as if their sleeping experience is being compromised. Though there is not much that can be done about the construction of the dorm bed or it’s existence in a dorm room there are a few adjustments that new dormers may want to make so their bed is a more comfortable place to be. First of all the dorm bed’s mattress is about as thin and not supportive as a mattress can get. Mattress pads are the answer to this dorm bed problem because they can easily and snugly fit over the existing dorm mattress. Mattress pads can be made with goose down fill or down alternative fill for those with allergies. The extra layer of padding and softness makes it much easier to find a comfortable sleeping position on a dorm bed. Feather beds are a little thicker and more padded than the traditional mattress pad. Feather beds can be found in twin and full sizes so it fits comfortably atop a dorm mattress. These feather beds turn a dorm bed into a comfortable and cozy sleeping space as the feather bed cradles the body and adds an extra layer of warmth underneath a sleeping body.

Choosing the Right Dorm Bedding

Black and White Dorm Room BeddingDorm bedding today does not need to be dull and dreary. The bed takes up a large space in the dorm room and can look decorative as well as in tune with the times. There are specially designed sets for both men and women, which means it is possible to put your own special spin on how you want your room to look.

It is always good to start out with a mattress cover and a mattress pad. This offers great protection should something be spilled on the bed. In hot summer months, you might just want to lie on the bed covered with a sheet, while watching TV or studying. Many times a soda or something else is in hand and it is easy to spill. If there is no covering then it is going to soak straight through to the mattress.

Unless you bring your own mattress, the ones found in dorm rooms can be far from soft. If an egg crate or other type of foam pad is added, it will provide extra comfort to enjoy. There are also allergen guard pillow protectors for anyone who has allergies.
