Choosing the right dorm furniture for an entire college — or even just one residency hall — is no easy feat. You have to pick the right combination of furniture to create a comfortable and welcoming environment that is just as conducive to learning as it is relaxing.
This may include fixtures like desks, bookshelves, and chairs, but every dorm room has one thing in common; beds.
The beds you choose have to be comfortable, but since you’re buying hundreds or thousands at a time, affordability and durability are paramount. You don’t want to get the cheapest furniture possible, or you’ll be stuck with dorms that look stiff, cramped, and dated and will need to be refurnished all over again in a few years.
Keep reading to learn how dormitory bed frames and mattresses from ESS Universal balance comfort, durability, and affordability to put the finishing touches on any dorm room.
Get the Most from Your Dorm Space with ESS Universal Bunk Beds
Dorms are infamous for being small and cramped. But at ESS Universal, we’re in the business of helping colleges get the most out of their dorm space.
Rather than taking up half of the dorm with single beds, bunk beds free up valuable floor space to give a more spacious feel. Bunk beds also give students more space to put their belongings and personalize their room however they want.
Durable Bunk Beds for Adults
We know bunk beds have a reputation of being just for kids, but our beds will bust that myth in no time. Colleges are home to students of all ages, heights, and sizes, so it’s important to choose bunk beds that can accommodate anybody.
The sturdy steel frame, reinforced with crossbars, ensures each bed can hold up to 500 pounds, so our dormitory bed frames can support sleepers of any size.
Safe and Comfortable Mattresses
No bed is complete without a comfortable mattress on top. Our mattresses use semi-firm, high-density foam and smooth polyurethane covers to create a cozy sleeping surface. It’s firm enough to withstand nearly any body weight but soft enough to gently contour your body.
Our mattresses are also waterproof and bug resistant, which saves you money in multiple ways. If there’s an outbreak of bedbugs on your campus, these mattresses will help limit it and make it easier to deal with the aftermath. The mattress cover is easy to slip off and throw in the washing machine.
Flexible Storage Options
Even with bunk beds, students may still be pressed for space in their dorms. So adding as much storage as possible can be a good idea. At ESS Universal, we have multiple ways to cleverly add storage space to dorm rooms without taking up any more floor space
All of our dormitory bed frames are compatible with the following storage options:
Under Bed Storage Lockers
Our under-bed storage lockers are the perfect way to store everything that won’t fit in dressers or closets.
The wire locker body is reinforced with a durable steel frame and gives you the option to add a padlock. So whether it’s extra shoes and bedding or valuable items you want to protect, you can easily stash your items in a locker.
We recommend ordering at least two storage lockers for every bunk bed.
Our wireframe storage baskets don’t provide as much storage space as our lockers, but they are a great way to store things you want to keep within arms’ reach. They’re perfect for small personal items like books, headphones, water bottles, toiletries, and towels.
