How To Make Your College Dorm Bed More Comfortable

Posted by Affirm Collaborator on

No one enjoys tossing and turning during a restless night's sleep - especially when you have an 8 AM class. Not getting a good night's sleep causes students to be mentally checked out during a morning class. Instead of missing class, make your college dorm bed more comfortable so you can succeed each day.

  1. Protect it from Bugs and Spills

Unfortunately, bedbugs and unknown stains are very real possibilities with how old some dorm mattresses are. Even if you don't see them, they can cause discomfort and overall restlessness. If you are unsure about the history of your assigned mattress, it's always a good idea to consider your options. One option is to get a mattress protector, which can keep bugs from getting in and prevent contact with your skin. Another option is to use a Copper Infused Mattress Topper. Sleepyhead's Copper Infused mattress toppers are hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and mite and bed bug resistant.

  1. Use a Mattress Topper

It's also recommended that you purchase a quality mattress topper if you are looking to increase your bed's overall comfort. Sleepyhead has both Gel and Copper mattress toppers which deliver not only comfort, but also health benefits. For starters, these two- to three-inch-thick memory foam toppers are designed to conform to your body as you settle in and cradle all your pressure points. The depth of these pads also effectively hides the bumpy, hard texture of the old mattress springs underneath, ensuring that you experience only the maximum amount of possible comfort. It's also important to note that copper mattress toppers provide you with improved temperature regulation, additional protection from bedbugs or mites, and are even hypo-allergenic.

  1. Purchase High-Quality Sheets

Another way to make your college dorm bed more comfortable for you to sleep in is to buy high-quality sheets and blankets. Cheap sheets tend to retain heat and feel scratchy against your skin, and both things can cause inflammation on sensitive skin and lead you to be uncomfortable all night long. Sheets with a higher thread count and softer materials, on the other hand, allow the bed to breathe throughout the night and won't promote the development of inflammation. 

  1. Make It Your Own

Last but certainly not least, it always helps to make the bed your own. Transitioning into a new environment can be a jarring thing, and sometimes it takes having our personal belongings around to begin feeling at ease. So, if you can't seem to get used to your new bed, try making it feel a bit more like your home one with your favorite blankets, pillows, or a mattress topper from Sleepyhead. 

At Sleepyhead, we're dedicated to ensuring that every student gets the quality sleep they need to go about their studies. This is why we've spent ample resources crafting our specially designed college mattress toppers. With one of these on your bed, you are sure to dream big and rest easy.
