Fall is here and it is time to go back to school! Whether you have a child in primary school or going off to university there are a few essentials each and every one needs to prepare for a successful school year. When getting ready for back to school season it is important to think about your child’s room and their day-to-day needs such as sleep, comfort and a calm place to study. The following are five items you need in your bedroom to get ready for back to school!

Chunky Blankets  

Nothing says fall like a chunky blanket, use this blanket as a throw over an armchair or the edge of your bed to complete your bedroom. Soft knit blankets add a nice touch to a layered look and oversized braids scream fall. Chunky blankets are a great way to create a comfort zone in any bedroom and can be great pieces to help warm up any room. Chunky blankets are perfect study buddies and can help create a calm zone in any room.   

Plush Pillows

Plush pillows are essential to a good night’s sleep. Plush pillows create a soft and gentle place to lay which in turn creates a dream sleep setup. Add a few plush pillows to your child’s favorite study chair or bed to create a comfort zone.

Bed in a Box

If you are looking for the perfect mattress for your room or your child’s room try a bed in a box. Bed in a box mattresses are extremely comfortable and they mold and form to your body. Most beds in a box are made with foam, perfect for a great night’s sleep. If you are looking for a way to help your child succeed in school (or in university), try a bed in a box to help them get the much needed rest so they can stay focused and alert during the day.


Storage is a must-have when it comes to getting ready for back to school. Whether your room, a dorm room or child’s room you will need storage somewhere. There are many options for storage including under the bed options. You can free up clutter by using under the bed storage bags and switch out your summer wardrobe for something more fall appropriate. There are cubes that come in many different styles and colors that can also be optimal for storage.

Calming Decor and Colors

When getting your room ready for back to school you will want to create a space that can provide rest, relaxation and focus. Create a space that is calming and ready for long nights of studying and homework. Look for colors that are complementary to fall like the colors of changing leaves or other natural and neutrals.  

Back to school is an exciting time but can be very stressful. Make sure you are taking care of yourself and your home by getting your room ready for the hustle and bustle.
