5 Dorm Room Essentials For College Students

1) Yoga Props

    Stress can take over in college, so be sure to take care of yourself. Make a space to stretch, relax, find inner strength and well being. Try a little yoga everyday in your dorm or carry your props outside.

    Sleeping on a comfortable mattress is essential when it comes to succeeding in college. Sleep is needed, but sometimes the mattress provided in a dorm can be uncomfortable preventing a good night’s rest. When it comes to dorm mattress size and comfort, each college has their standard. You do not have to worry about finding the right size, just measure the frame or the mattress and The Futon Shop will customize a mattress topper that fits your comfort and price. Instead of sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress, adding chemical free mattress toppers to your dorm decor can be an added benefit. No matter what your sleep comfort is, The Futon Shop can make latex toppers, wool toppers, gel toppers and ship it quickly to any state from coast to coast within a week.
