15 Twin XL Bedding Sets That Will Make Your College Dorm Room Look Cooler Than Ever

Packing for college may just be one of the most stressful aspects of preparing for your freshman year — especially when you have to worry about making your dorm room look as cool as possible. Never fear! I have found the best twin XL bedding sets, so you no longer have to worry about making your dorm room the coolest one in the quad. Decorating your new home-away-from-home just got a whole lot easier.

One of the most important pieces of advice for incoming college freshmen is this: When your dorm room is cozy and cool, it becomes a great hang-out spot, and therefore a great way to make friends. Even if you have a single dorm in college, it's easy to meet new people by getting a fun bedspread, putting up some rad dorm room posters, and leaving your door open. A festive space invites people inside.

Of course, having a nice bed at college is also nice for, well, sleeping. With the right bedspread you can make even the teensiest dorm room feel like home, and you'll look forward to crashing into your modest twin XL bed every night. These 15 bedspreads make your transition into college just a little more comfy — so get shopping!
