The bedroom is a place of relaxation and serenity. You need to create the interior design in such a way that it sets your mind at ease. There are many soft and plush accessories that bring this feeling to the bedroom and one such accessory is cushions. This is both a fashion statement and a functional element.
When you are selecting bed cushions you have to think about the filling inside. You will need the bedroom cushions to be quite firm as it will be supporting you when you are sitting on it. But there are also bedroom cushions that are used mostly for decoration and in this case, you can choose any type of filling as the functionality of it will not matter much.
If your bed is looking a little too dull or sparse, a great way of filling it up with some color and life is using decorative and/or functional cushions. The number of cushions to add is another question. There is no rule for this as it depends entirely on your preference. You can also look into some inspiration images of how a bed is decorated with cushions. Some people like to have an excess of cushions while others prefer to have fewer that add a touch of color here and there. It will also depend on how you are using the cushions.
The other consideration is the size of the cushion. They need to be proportionate to the bed and the pillows. This will make the final effect a lot more pleasant. If you select cushions that are too large, these will overpower the room and look out of place. It will also look unusual if the cushions are too small. You may lose the effect you are looking to get out of the cushions completely.
And sometimes the smaller cushions may not be very useful. Think about how you arrange sofa cushions. There will be slightly larger cushions to rest your back and smaller ones that are used to add a touch of color and the whimsy of a pattern. Think about how you will be arranging the cushions. Cushions will anyway take some extra time to arrange on the bed as this is something you will have to do every day. This is what will help you maintain the visual impact you are going for.
In addition to the filling, the material of the cushion cover also contributes to overall comfort. This also has an effect on the maintenance. If you are looking for low maintenance cushion covers, then you have to choose a material that is machine washable and lasts a long time. This is especially useful how households with pets and children. In a house with young children, having cushion covers made of expensive materials like silk can be a recipe for disaster.
But if you don’t mind replacing these more frequently, you can choose any material you like. There are materials that will still look good despite their lower price point such as faux silk and polyester cotton blends. They are also more practical to have as cushion covers as they can be washed easily.
