Back to School Bedding from BeddingStyle!

Schools across the country will be starting before we know it! Elementary students are hitting the stores with school supply checklists in tow to fill their new backpacks with crayons, pencils, erasers, notebooks and folders. And then there is the need for a new pair of tennis shoes for physical education class.

Middle school students may have a few more gadgets on their lists to include calculators, protractors, compasses and the like. Once the kids hit junior-high and senior high school age, their priorities tend to shift from wanting new school supplies to wanting new clothes for school, mainly to impress their friends.

Then there are all the college students wanting to deck out their dorm rooms for the new semester! Here are a few tips when buying bedding for college dorm rooms:

1. Find out what size beds are provided in your specific dormitory. Most of regular sized Twin beds, but a few have Twin XL mattresses which require special sheets that run a little longer than normal Twin sheets. Some dormitories even provide futons that use a Full size sheet set.  Both Twin and Twin XL mattresses can use Twin comforters, and a Full size mattress could use a Full or Queen sized comforter.

2. Since dorm rooms are usually compact in size, you have to consider that the beds are probably used as more than just a bed, but also as a couch, desk, table, etc. Knowing that, I recommend a color or pattern that will withstand stains as it's bound to get dirtier than normal.

3. Last but not least, look for high quality bedding, not only to endure the wear and tear I just described, but will also last the few years of dorm life. College is expensive enough without having to refurnish must-haves every year!

Here my top picks of bedding that not only fit the bill for quality college dorm room bedding, but are also "student-approved" as the trendiest college bedding styles:

Floral with Pink! Gorgeous!

Love that black and white bedding set, of course it would have to be for a girl.

Steve Madden's Juliet bedding is my favorite. http://www.beddingstyle.com/products/juliet.asp

I love the black & white with the pop of pink!

Nicole Miller is my favorite. They clean patterns but warm and inviting colors/feel.

I'm in love with the second bed set. From the patterns to the colors, it just screams "BUY ME" It would turn my room from drab to total FABULOUS!

I am loving the striped bedding!

Wow, So hard to pick from all the great selections! Currently the TOMMY HILFIGER Hydrangea Petals is my favorite . This is why i never got a tattoo. I love changing styles for a positive Change.

I love the Addison bedding!

We like option 1 with all the browns and reds! thanks

Number 3. Simple and classy!

I love the second black and white one...There is a typo under the striped bedding as well. Where it says"or" it should say "of"...hopefully this won't knock me out of the drawing:)

Oooh! I love the Juliet by Steve Madden. So cute!!!

Wow! I like the second one which is the middle, for it could use for both men and women. Jesus loves you!

The sophia style is my fav!!

I LOVE the first image above! It's modern, uses inviting colors, and is artistic. I think it would add energy and flair to any room!

My bed needs an extreme makeover, possibly a new and much more comfortable bed! I'm a 21 year old, "BROKE" college student so I don't have the money to pay for one (money goes to tuition) and have been having trouble sleeping because of my bed. A part of my bed is also broken and I am slightly slanted to one side. HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED :) !

Orange Kay is nice.
