5 Cute Dorm Room Bedding Styles

It is never too early to start shopping for next year’s bedding. Whether you are an up-and-coming freshman eagerly making your first college bedding purchase or a returning upperclassman wanting to restyle your dorm room for a new school year, the bedding possibilities are endless. Do you want a duvet, a quilt, or a comforter? Are you leaning toward blues and greens or reds and pinks? Should you buy something inexpensive or should you invest a little more in a higher quality bedspread? The choice is up to you, but here are 5 cute dorm room bedding styles that we are loving at Her Campus!

1. Bed, Bath, & Beyond's Kamille Comforter Set 

Bright colors to brighten any collegiettes day! Not only is this comforter sure to bring a smile to your face, but it will also add some spice to an otherwise neutral and barren dorm room. The comforter features a mix of crushed velvet, burnout velvet, jacquard fabrics and embroidered pieces that will keep you comfy and warm at night. The twin comforter set comes with one standard sham and the full/queen set includes two standard shams. If you are going for a fun and playful design scheme, then this bedding is for you!

2. Dormify's Amethyst Medallion Duvet 

Maybe feminine sophistication is more your thing. Dormify’s Amethyst Medallion Duvet is simple, sleek, and Audrey Hepburn elegant. This Brocade Home exclusive on Dormify is described as “feminine goth,” but with an “Alice and Wonderland dream-like quality.” The bedding is available in twin, which is perfect for college beds everywhere. Add some whimsy to the semester and create your own dreamy escape for the fall.

3. PB Teen's Del Mar Quilt

PB Teen is the go-to website for most high school and college kids looking to revamp their rooms. This Del Mar Quilt reminds us of the ocean and is sure to transform any dorm room into a soothing, peaceful, and serene environment. The flowery blooms, bright circles, and summery patterns will transport even the most stressed collegiette to a tropical Paradise.

4. West Elm's Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet Cover in Steel Blue

A solid color duvet is always a great option, especially if you plan on decorating the rest of your room with bright, eye-catching accents. West Elm’s signature bestseller – the Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet in Steel Blue - is fashionable and classy. The textured pintuck pleats add dimension and create a fluffy, cloudlike illusion. Not to mention it is a darker duvet cover, so any spills are likely to disappear into the fabric.

5. Urban Outfitters's Tapestry Medallion Duvet Cover 

We love this fiery, red duvet cover from Urban Outfitters. It is an eye-catchingly bold statement piece and the best part is that it is only $79! If red is your color, then this is the bedding for you. It is only available online, so make sure to order it before it sells out!

There you have it. It may only be spring, but that doesn’t mean it is too early to start shopping for your fall college gear. With any of these five beddings, your dorm room will surely be transformed into the ideal, college hangout. And once you have picked out your bedding, just think of all the fun accessories and accents you can start purchasing! Happy shopping!
