DormCo.com advises new college students on necessary dorm room supplies for move-in day
With college move-in day fast approaching, DormCo offers new students advice on which dorm products are essential for college.
Dormco.com sells more than 15 varieties of twin XL mattress toppers. Kerri Linsenbigler, a customer service representative, recommended DormCo’s bestselling 3” Memory Foam Mattress Topper.
“Dorm mattress can hardly be called mattresses,”
She also mentioned the importance of buying all dorm bedding products in size twin XL. Standard dorm beds are 80” long and 39” wide, which is a unique and hard-to-find size, according to DormCo.
“If you bought a regular twin mattress topper or even regular twin sheets, they’d be about 5” too short,” Linsenbigler said. “Dorm beds are usually a true twin XL, and all of our bedding products are made to fit dorm beds.”
According to DormCo, most students don’t realize how small dorm rooms are until move in day. Sharing that small room requires some creative storage solutions so both students can fit all of their clothes and accessories without making the room feel cluttered. DormCo offers a wide selection of underbed storage, closet organizers and over-the-door storage to help maximize space in dorm rooms.
“You shouldn’t just leave the back of your dorm room door empty,” said Nia Santiano, a DormCo customer service representative. “Every inch of space in a dorm should be used. Over-the-door hooks are a life saver in dorms. Those few extra hooks give you a place to hang up towels or coats.”
Besides over-the-door hooks, Dormco also sells shoe racks, hat racks and even an ironing board that goes over the door, Santiano said.
Dining hall food is known for being bland and, sometimes, even down right gross. It’s inevitable that students will eventually tire of college cafeteria food, and they will want to cook for themselves in their dorm room. Students should be prepared with at least the basic dorm cooking necessities, according to DormCo. While a huge selection of individual dorm cooking products are available on DormCo.com, Linsenbigler recommended the Dorm Cooking College Gift Pack.
“All the dorm cooking basics, like utensils, a can opener and sponges are included in this pack,” Linsenbigler said. “There’s also some fun, but necessary, products like the Rapid Ramen Cooker. Ramen is a dorm room staple, and this handy accessories cooks the noodles perfectly every time.”
