Comforter Sets to Get You Through College

comforter sets

With so many bedding options out there, it’s nearly impossible to decide which one to purchase — I spent three month combing through sites until I finally settled on one myself. There are choices like duet cover or comforter? Blue or grey sham? Throw pillows or no throw pillows? The combinations are endless and can easily consume you if you let them, so don’t.

I had and will continue to get a comforter set throughout my college career — easier to store and move as well. Although that’s not to say that duvet covers and quilts (which appear sparsely on this roundup) aren’t great choices as well, they just aren’t as convenience for me. Whether you’re in a cramped dorm room to a cushy apartment, you’re going to need a comforter to keep you cozy. Here are the best comforter sets for every stage of college.

Dorm Comforters

Dorm bedding is tricky because the sizing is so unique, but over the past few years companies have begun cranking out tons of cute twin XL comforter sets. My advice to you as far as dorm bedding goes is don’t spend an arm and a leg if you don’t have to. My reason being that (more than likely) you’re not going to be sleeping in twin size bed for long — max two years. So, if you’re just going to have to turn around and buy new a new comforter, I don’t see why you’d spend a bunch of money on your first one.

Price is mainly dependent on brand (since all the sizes are the same) so make sure that if you find something you like that you look around to see if you can find a similar comforter set for cheaper. No matter which you choose, you can’t go wrong with these bedding sets.

Apartment Comforters

When you move out of the dorm and into either a quad or apartment you’re not only getting more space but also a bed upgrade (I’m not so patiently awaiting this day). Chances are the bedding that you get at this stage will last you a few years after college, so you want to make sure that you choose wisely. Often you can get a comforter for both twin XL and full or queen sizes so if you just love the bedding that you already have chances are you’ll be able to snag the same one.
