The Solution to Your Dorm Bed Dilemmas

The Solution to Your Dorm Bed Dilemmas

March 25, 2022   | Annabeth & Hayley | 0 comments

The only thing harder than transitioning from high school to college is transitioning from your bed at home to a college dorm bed. Let’s face it, we all know dorm beds are notoriously uncomfortable and miserable to sleep on. Dorm beds are built for practicality over comfort, and their sole purpose is to serve as a place to sleep, not necessarily a place to sleep well. This article will give you the rundown on all things dorm beds and discuss the number one dorm bed necessity you’ll need to turn that unsatisfying dorm mattress into your cozy home away from home.

The must-have essential for transforming your dorm bed is a mattress topper- which can add a layer of cushion, protection, and comfort to a dull dorm mattress. A bad mattress can significantly affect your quality of sleep and everyday performance. Getting a good night’s sleep is fundamental for students to obtain the focus and drive needed to do their best. When it comes to academic success, it’s not worth settling; investing in the right topper is crucial.

Picking a Mattress Topper 

If you’re looking for the voted Best Dorm Mattress Topper, look no further than Sleepyhead. Our toppers are made specifically to increase the comfort of your unsatisfying dorm bed and are an affordable way to upgrade and transform your college sleep space. The Sleepyhead Gel Topper is a memory foam topper that contours the body to cushion pressure points while combating heat retention with a specialized cooling construction. We’ve thoughtfully crafted every detail of our toppers to turn worn-out dorm beds into a retreat from college chaos. Sleepyhead has the solution to all your dorm bed problems to make your dorm feel a little more like home:

Dorm Mattress’s Exposed  

Not-so-fun fact: colleges typically reuse the same mattresses year after year (8 years on average, to be exact). How are you supposed to get a restful night’s sleep when who knows how many people have slept, snoozed, and snored on it before you? We know sleep comes easiest when your worries have been put to rest. That’s why Sleepyhead mattress toppers are antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, odor-resistant, washable, anti-inflammatory, and even anti “yuck-I-have-to-sleep-on-a-dorm-mattress” to guarantee protection from any unknowns upon your mattress. 

Health Benefits 

Especially for students who experience allergies, living in the dorms can come with a whole new set of challenges. If this sounds like you, then we suggest using a copper-infused mattress topper over your dorm mattress. Believe it or not, there are several different health benefits to sleeping on copper. For example, it actively repels pollen, dirt, and dander. On an overly used mattress, these materials can collect and eventually affect how you breathe when you sleep. However, with copper to combat these aspects, you’re guaranteed a safe and restful night’s sleep. 

College Focused Sizing 

Another reoccurring issue is that 95% of dorm beds use twin XL mattresses, and due to this unusual sizing, it can be tricky to find the right products to accommodate your bed. Lucky for you, to help ease this widespread issue, we specifically manufacture our mattress toppers to fit twin XL beds without sacrificing comfort. 

Quality Guarantee 

Are you worried about the greatness of your mattress topper wearing out? Fear not with a Sleepyhead mattress topper. The #1 rated gel and copper mattress toppers are made from high-quality materials and will last you through your college years with our “good-till-graduation” warranty. Our trial period makes sure you like our toppers as much as we do. 

New Bed. New You

We know how stressful the college transition process can be, especially when it comes to dorm beds. That’s why Sleepyhead aims to deliver peace of mind and empowers college students to make the most of their potential by allowing them to dream big and rest easy with our mattress toppers.
