Entering college presents a range of mixed emotions. Freshmen are generally
excited about beginning their adult life. On the other hand, uncertainty and
fear of independence may overshadow this joyous time. An aspect of college
life involves moving into the dorm. For many, this is their first leap of
independence from their parents. College students who want to reflect maturity
and sophistication may do so by selecting dorm bedding that is modern, or
has an adult appeal.
College students generally select their dorm bedding prior to leaving home.
However, some simply bring along their existing sheets and comforter. There
is a variety of dorm bedding to choose. Bedding is available to suit every
style and preference. Those who are unique and eccentric may prefer a funky
or hip design. This sort of dorm bedding is well suited for teenagers who
lived in homes where crazy, outlandish décor was not allowed.
Because college dorm beds are twin sized, many college students buy their
bedding ensemble before viewing their room. However, it is wise for students
living in the dorm to hold off from selecting a sheet and comforter set until
they arrive on campus. In most cases, twin size beds are approximately 75
inches long. However, college dorm beds are known to be slightly longer – generally
about 80 inches. Those who select dorm bedding in advance may choose small
bedding sheets that will not fit the bed.
Some dorm beds require extra long twin sheets. These include one fitted sheet
and one top sheet. Extra long twin sheets are available in a variety of colors
and style. Thus, college students sleeping on a slightly longer mattress are
not limited in their choice of sheets. Although college dorm beds tend to
be longer, an extra long twin comforter is not necessary. A regular twin sized
comforter will fit perfectly on longer twin sized beds.
