5 Bedding Sets For Any Girl’s Personality
It’s July, and we all know what that means! Independence Day, barbeques, beach parties, bonfires, and a lot of tanning? Well, yeah. But I was actually talking about getting ready for the upcoming school year! July is the month when everyone realizes that yes, we do have to go back to school in the fall. Naturally, that induces a scramble to find textbooks, cute clothes, and of course, dorm stuff.
Whether you’re a returning college student like myself, or an eager freshman ready to begin the most exciting four years of her life, either way, you’ll be picking out dorm stuff. And what is the number one thing that we all care about arguably more than anything else in our dorm room? Our comforter. Dorm room comforters are so important; not only do they showcase our style and personality, but they also are directly involved in how we sleep – night after night – for 9 months.
Looking to find some great dorm comforters? Don’t worry; I’ve already done the work for you. I inspected comforter after comforter, design after design, and fabric after fabric, in order to compile a list of some of the best comforters any college girl would love to have in their dorm.
If you’re…Fashionably Frugal
I think this comforter is super cute, and with its very affordable price, you can’t pass it up if you’re looking for a good comforter on a budget. Let’s face it, sometimes we have to be frugal; with the inordinate cost of textbooks for just one semester, there is not always extra money to frivolously spend. If that’s the case, there are reasonable bedding options out there that are absolutely adorable, even for the tightest budget. Just shop around!
If you’re…Plain Yet Pretty
If you’re looking for plain dorm options that are still girly, this one might be up your alley. It’s a super cute pink color that reminds me of bubble gum, but with its simple design, you don’t have to worry about something that’s too vibrant and will clash with your roommate. At a price point equally as friendly as the first option, this comforter hits the mark without hitting your pockets too hard.
If you’re…Amazingly Artistic
I really love this comforter because it’s so unique. If you love photography, or just beautiful art in general, you’ll love this comforter. It’s a quilt, so it’s different than most dorm bedding options out there, and it has grayscale daisies all over it. Is it just me or is this piece awesome?
If you’re…Gung-Ho for Glamour
I don’t know about you, but personally I’m a sucker for anything that is damask – it’s probably one of my favorite prints ever. This comforter has a higher price point than the others I’ve mentioned, but is still a great deal for the amazing design and style you’re getting. Your dorm room should symbolize you. If you’re a glamorous gal with an eye for style, this bedding set is sure to show that.
If you’re…Concerned about Comfort
I saved the warmest for last! If you’re like me, and you love a good nap and truly appreciate a good night’s sleep, you’ll absolutely adore a comforter like this plush one. Between long days of classes and hectic weekends, you’ll learn to love comfort even more than you ever did before. With a price point smack dab in between the others, this comforter is both warm and worth every dollar you’re spending on it. I kid you not when I say that you’ll feel like you’re snuggling with a polar bear. And with 16 different colors that it comes in, you won’t have to worry about choosing between your style and your comfort.
All the bedding options that I’ve mentioned can be found on http://www.dormco.com.
When picking your dorm bedding lots of things come into play – price, design, and comfort are a few of the most popular criterion. Be sure to shop around at multiple stores and online retailers for bedding that you absolutely love, at a price your parents will love too!
Now that you've heard about bedding and how important it is (and I agree it's very important!) I bet you're wondering what the giveaway is for! Thanks to Dorm Co., we have a Stuff Bucket just like the one below to give away!
The Dorm Stuff Bucket is one of the hottest, most popular, must-have dorm bathroom totes! This well designed dorm product is meant to hold all your non-shower bathroom supplies. Basically that means it is not geared to go in the shower. What it is geared to do is to hold your cosmetics, make-up, toothbrush, hair products, female hygiene products, face wash, nail filer, lotion and any other bathroom type item that needs a convenient carry tote.
The Stuff Bucket has over 18 outer pockets and 7 inside pockets. Store all your dorm room essentials in one spot!
As soon as I read that paragraph, I knew exactly what they were talking about! As a college student myself, I was all too familiar with this problem. I'm pretty low-maintenance, but there were times when I would go to the bathroom down the hall, trying to hold on to my toothbrush, toothpaste, powder, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, hair brush, and 2-3 other things. It's not easy! This bucket allows you to have a second caddy (you'll need one for the shower, too, I assure you) that holds the stuff you don't want to get wet! This is an item that makes me think 'why didn't I think of that?' It's so simple and useful. Let me also say that if you don't have something like this, you need somewhere else to put the stuff, and wherever else you stash it won't be portable and won't take up this little space!
The Prize: A Stuff Bucket with a retail value of $19.99
