Love Your Home Away from Home!
Now that you’ve found the perfect crash pad for you, equipped with a cold bed to call your own, it’s time claim the bunk and to make your bed truly yours! A little love goes a long way, and this is your home away from home, so go ahead and get comfortable! We’ve compiled a list of items that we’ve noticed commuting airline crew use to improve and personalize the space over the years. New hire or seasoned commuting crew, here are some suggestions to help give your bed the perfect makeover!
1. Bamboo Sheets
Let’s start with the basics! You’re going to need bedding regardless, but instead of running down to Target or Wal-Mart, I encourage you to indulge in the luxury of bamboo sheets! They are ever so soft, affordable and eco-friendly. There’s nothing not to love about these sheets that become more soft with every wash. Be good to your wallet and yourself! You can thank me later!
2. 100% Down Alternative Pillows
There’s a reason why this set of pillows is the best deal on the Amazon market! These 100% cotton down alternative pillows will give your head a comfortable place to rest! Dream a little dream in the comfort level you wish, since these are available in soft, medium and firm. As a plus, they are made in the USA!
3. Photo Wire
Capture sweet memories of friends and family and hang them in your bunk to add a personal touch! This photo wire comes with clips and 40 LED lights, so the wire will provide some additional light when you want it, along with a pleasant reminder of home!
4. Towel & Curtain Clips
Beach towels aren’t the only thing these clips are good for! Use these to clip up your curtains or to shut the world out! Clipping your curtain closed will eliminate the light from bothering you, as well as send a message to your roommates that you are unavailable. And hey, bring a few to your layover hotels to completely shut the light out there too! This little hack will improve your sleep and make life all the more wonderful.
5. Clip-on Light
Brighten up your space with the simple click of a button! If your bed doesn’t already come with a light, this clip-on light will do the trick! Attach it to a shelf or to the bed itself and adjust to your liking. Bright or dim, you decide!
6. Clip-on Fan
If you get hot at night especially, you are going to want a fan to adjust the temperatures within your bunk space! This little fan can easily clip on to any shelf or side of your bed. It is adjustable and has 2 speeds, perfect for your crashpad bed.
7. Shower Caddy
Maintain all of your favorite shower and hygiene amenities in this portable mesh caddy. You can easily place it under your bed and pull it out to take with you to the shower! Every professional commuter needs one of these!
8. Bedside Storage Organizer
While we’re talking about maintaining your personal belongings, take it a step up with this hanging bedside organizer! With 10 pockets, you can keep your favorite and necessary items right beside you. Warning though- with everything you need and want at an arm’s length, you may want to stay in bed and never get up at all!
9. Charging Station
I love this travel charging station and I never leave home without it! It adds 2 outlets, 2 smart USB ports and has a wrap around chord that won’t get tangled up in a mess! With this little tool, you will have a spot for every device! Make sure you have one in your bunk so that you can always keep your phone and crew tablet charged!
10. Phone & Tablet Mount
This flexible grip holder mount will set you up for a good movie or simply give your hands a rest. You can also attach this spider grip to a car or stand alone.
