When you help move your teen into college, you will focus on the dorm room bed, the weirdly elevated, twin XL-length bed. You will do this because, more than anything, you want that bed to be filled with all the good things that remind your child of home. As you add each layer and smooth out all the wrinkles, you will silently hope you are adding a protective coating of love as you transform the industrial-strength bed into your kid’s “home.”
And when you finally pat down the finished, well-made bed, you will try your hardest not to cry.
To help you with the dorm room shopping in your future, we asked our Grown and Flown Parents what their kids loved and used the most for their dorm room beds and the following are some of their very best ideas.
