Swapping up your throw pillows in one of the quickest ways to easily improve your living and family room. While picking the correct pillow fabric is crucial, so is picking the correct size, cushion insert, and layout for your room. We have compiled a few of our top suggestions for precisely doing that, so you will be a master of choosing and arranging throw pillows in no time.
Pillow inserts should be 2 inches bigger than your pillow coverings. With this, if your pillow coverings are 20 inches square, use 22-inch square inserts. Use 26’’ inserts for 24” pillows, and so on. The larger insert size will make your pillows look plumper and more beautiful, rather than slouchy and lazy.
Pillow inserts are not all made equal. Polyester inserts really keep pillows full and still, making them ideal for the “looking prettier” profession. However, most pillows in your home are meant to be use, not merely to look good, and polyester inserts are anything but cuddle worthy. Make sure that the polyester inserts have a zipper so you can replace them with higher-quality ones if necessary. Also, try rotating pillows through the seasons and always have additional inserts on standby.
On a couch or sectional, groups of pillows look best when they are stacked, which you can do by mixing and matching pillow sizes. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but what works best for you is what matters. Generally, you can use two 22” pillows on the ends of a sofa and two 20” pillows in front of them.
When it comes to choosing throw pillows for your home, color is arguably the most apparent factor. You should choose a throw cushion that contrasts with the fabric surface it will be placed on. A throw pillow should be a significantly different hue than the bed or couch it is on unless you are looking for a monochromatic aesthetic.
Do not be hesitant to mix and match materials, fabrics, and textures. Linen and velvet are two of our most recommended materials for throw pillows. For additional dimension to a space, experiment with a textured pattern throw cushion. If you are designing a monochrome space, fabric and texture are extremely important. In a monochromatic environment, changing the fabric will make all the difference.
Extra ornamental embellishments, such as buttons, fringe, and trim, will be found on many throw pillows. Choose a throw cushion with a lot of decorations with caution, as they may easily make your area appear overly crowded or distract attention away from the room’s main point. Throw pillows with poms poms and tassels look best in boho settings, but they do not function well anywhere else.
Throw pillows come in different shapes and sizes. The most common of these are square, round, bolster, and lumbar. Oversized throw pillows are also becoming increasingly popular these days, and they may provide a lot of comfort to your bed or sofa.
Throw pillows are generally the finishing touch to a room or a person’s décor. They are a simple and entertaining way to give you meticulously prepared and furnished areas some personality. Throw pillows are a fantastic way to bring everything in your room together, such as the color palette and theme. It’s difficult to know how to select the appropriate throw cushion for your home when there are so many possibilities.
