No-Stress Student Apartment and Dorm Bedding Ideas
Many first time college or university students dread the day they must leave home to live in their own apartment
or dorm. Of the problems is that they have no idea how to live on their own. But this should be a really refreshing
and enjoyable time that a student can spend with friends and family while they help pack and move their stuff. One
important and usually overlooked item is college bedding, or dorm bedding, for their new location.
Just the thought of being able to customize their own room should be exciting since they don't have to be bound
by mom and dad's rules at home. But one of the problems is that a student’s apartment, or dorm room, is extremely
cramped for space and doesn't allow for extra items that aren't required daily. This is just another reason why
their bedding becomes an important option to make things more livable.
The brand we recommend for students the most is Room Essentials because the price is always right with
them. They have great styles of bedding to suit almost everyone’s taste and can be bought online. Sometimes
it’s even cheaper than going to your local Wal-mart. We have mentioned them in other articles on our site and
think they will solve some issues a student may have with their dorm bedding budget.
A thrift store and second hand items are a great way to save money on the basics. Students are usually living on
the verge or poverty which makes the need for conservative spending habits. One item that a college student could
use for furniture is inflatable furniture. A cheap inflatable chair or couch will run less than $50. But just
because they are cheap doesn't mean that they are bad. In fact, many inflatable furniture items are built to take a
beating, resist all liquids, and clean up very easily. They can be deflated and stored to make extra space and
blown up quickly with a vacuum or hand pump when unexpected guests arrive.
Some students prefer the same comfort that they had at home. A sofa bed or pull-out couch is an option
one might consider. They can be expensive but they allow a comfortable place to sleep and transform in to a
place to study from. But what would you put on it? What about a `Dorm Room in a Box` bedding set? These can be
found on-line extremely cheap and work really well with most settings. In the picture you can see that this
simple colored set almost looks like something of designer luxury. But sets like this can be found for $99 and
sometimes even cheaper. They usually include everything you need like a sheet set, comforter, mattress pad,
pillow, and even a towel!
Student apartments and dorm rooms don't have to be like a jail cell and can be jazzed up in to an amazing cozy
room. When moving in to your own apartment or dorm room, the idea is that it is yours to do what you like while you
are living there just as long as it doesn't violate any rules in the rental contract. This is a student’s home,
study area, and living quarters for the school year.
Sometimes it will seem like an impossible task to decorate such a small space. In this case they should ask for
help from friends, family, or even other students who have been around longer than they have. Even if they ask for
an opinion just to make conversation, it may spark some new ideas or tips they haven't thought of. Making the dorm
room a memorable and comfortable place to live will make studying easier and living away from their parents even
