When you open a pinterest board looking for college dorm ideas, I guarantee to you that you will find a lot of cute makeup vanity ideas, stunning matching pink comforters, or just plain out things that are clearly meant for people who like a more femaninie aesthetic. However, for those of us who don’t want sparkly pink things for our room, we have a hard time looking for a way to decorate our rooms. A lot of the advertisement is aimed at girls doing what they want for their dorm rooms, while boys are left with trying to figure something out for theirs.
But never fear, for we are here. In this list you will find a compilation of dorm room bedding that will be sure to diversify the types of bedding available to fit a more masculine aesthetic. And note that the word used was masculine aesthetic. Regardless of your gender identity, finding warmer tones could just be your style. And, that is exactly what this list is for.
Stripes and Plaids
This grey stripes and plaid is such a cute aesthetic for a room that is more focused on warmer tones. Having darker colors like this is also going to be beneficial when it comes to a colder climate. The dark tones will cling to warmth of the room and make your bed extra nice and toasty when it comes time for a nice winter nap. The grey will also be beneficial when you want to have a midnight snack in your bed and you “accidentally” drop something. Having the darker tones can hide your stain and get you until the next laundry night.
This color can match a variety of styles. One that comes to mind for this is a vintage black-and-white aesthetic. Having a pool of greys to color match on the bedding works really well with the greys of different images in pictures.
Marlton Navy Stripes
Having a blue toned room can be perfect when it comes to adding decor that is more ocean or space themed. If you come from places where beaches are prominent or just have an interest in space, having a blue-toned comforter can help you relax when you come into your dorm room. It fits perfectly with a laid-back aesthetic in your room.The white highlights also give some texture to the bedding along with the grain in the blue, making it look as if it were made from a denim material. Having a matching look with your decor is easy and comfortable with this bedding, working perfectly with blues, blacks, and greys.
IZOD Buffalo Check
This one does change up a little bit from what we were working with. While the blue and whites are still there representing those cold colors, there is also a sense of warmth we get from this popping red. This little addition lets your room take on two different aesthetics. One could be this warmer look, white yellows and oranges. And another could be more cold with blues and purples. Either way this bedding works perfectly. Trying to add some of both could give your room some personality while everything will match because of this being your centerpiece.
Ava Diamond Oversized Cotton Full-Queen Quilt
We absolutely love this comforter set for a number of reasons. Foer one, the contour of the design on the bedding gives it this slim and elegant look. Coupled with the dark color of the bedding, you have a perfect looking bed to complete your dorm look. Much like the other blues that we have just previously looked at, having this will also allow you to keep a dark colored aesthetic filled with purples and maybe even dark greens. The white on the inside can also help with neutral colored decor.
Utica Blue Tie Dye
This one is also another spin on what we have been looking at so far. The design could be interpreted as a little more feminine, being that it is tie-dye. However, we hope that this doesn’t deter you from getting this aesthetically pleasing bedding. The tie-dye is something that not a lot of people have, and this look can help add a little more color and design to your room, especially if you don't have a lot of space to make it unique to you. So, having this bedding could give you the boost you need to make the dorm look like it has a little piece of you in it.
The bedding also opens up to similar blue designs that we have discussed before. The tie-dye look can also contribute to more of an ocean vibe. So, if you are interested in marine biology or just love to go swimming, this bedding could be the one that really makes your dorm unique to you.
IZOD Bryon Plaid Comforter Set
This plaid look is definitely a choice you have to make. But, if it matches what you are looking for, it can make for a really interesting look for your dorm room. It has features detailing light grey and just a hint of red. The reverse side is also something that might catch your eye, as the light blue polka dot pattern that matches the blue hues on the front side is just perfect for making that perfect fold when you make your bed. Another thing we absolutely love about this set is how fluffy this comforter is. It literally pops out of the picture, and you can really see it because of the colors that are on display in this set. Overall this is a great set if you want to set yourself apart from the crowd and like a lot of personality come from your bedding.
IZOD American Rugby Stripe
When you first look at this image, you might not see how the tan really works into the masculine aesthetic. However, this tan and white sheet exudes just enough masculine energy to make this list. And, it is a great choice if you want to try being a little fashion forward with your bedding. Most if not all of the beddings in this set really employ blue and warmer colors to give off the masculine energy that makes up this list. However, it can be easily done well when using tans and whites. Having this bedding doesn’t make your room too busy and can make a space that is originally smaller open up and little and almost makes room for some other pieces that complement it around the room.
Camouflage Comforter Set
Similar to the previous one on this list, this camouflage based bedding doesn’t immediately put the words “masculine” in your mind. However, we need to look at the benefits of a lighter bedding here. Having this lighter color will brighten your room, and make it easier to work in because of this. The hints of camo that you see in the background are also imperative to the look to add this more masculine spin on it. The checkers found on the other side also help this masculine appeal, and overall having this bright color in your room will really bring you and benefit. Additionally, the color is more of a neutral, so it can compliment some of the other colors that might not stick to that agenda in your room, even going as far as to possibly compliment any plants you might keep around.
IZOD Anderson Stripe
The orange is what we really love in this last one. It is such a departure from the lights and neutrals and blues we have been previously looking at, and does similar work that the red did in one of the previous ones we looked at. Overall, this is definitely a risky fashion choice, but that makes it all the better when it pays off and makes your dorm especially unique. This bedding is perfect for the person that wants to make their room sparkle, but wants to do it in a little bit more of a masculine kind of way.
These bedding sets are perfect for any guy's bedroom. From warm to cool colors, any of these sets are sure to pop in your dorm.
