All home have cushions but we hardly use our cushions to maximum effect. Selecting the right cushions for your room can be difficult and it’s easy to get it wrong. We tend to focus more on the furniture, paints, artworks and other fixtures while decorating our homes. However, the other small elements like cushions, mats, and curtains also play an important role in reviving the entire look of the house.
Soft and fluffy cushions can transform any place into a comfort zone. They are the most common home decor accessories. The best thing about cushions is that they can be used in any room. They can add an elegance to the room and make the dull part full of life. It is cost effective as you don’t have to buy a new cushion every time, just update the cover and you get a brand new look. Before buying cushion covers online or offline, you need to consider different sizes, colors, patterns and materials. Let us look at them in detail.
The first and foremost thing to consider while buying a cushion cover is the size of the cushions that you own. The standard size for cushions is 18×18 inch or 20×20 inch in a square. But there are much more sizes to explore in the market. The idea of using same sized cushions sound boring instead, mix up the sizes and shapes of cushions and give your house a brand new contemporary look.
The material of cushions is extremely important. There are a variety of options available to choose from such as silk, linen, cotton, velvet, polyester, jute, brocade, and much more. The design of the material can make or break the entire look of the room layout. Therefore the cushions should be chosen according to the style of the room or furniture where it is to be placed. For example, if using for everyday comfort then cotton is recommended. On the other hand, silk and rayons give a more luxurious look and are best for special and festive occasions.
All base colors are available such as white, pink, orange, yellow, green, red, brown, blue, grey and black. Select the color according to the colors of your wall, the pattern of curtains or any artwork placed or hanged inside the room. Do not be afraid to mix and match the colors by using contrasting colors.
They come in many beautiful patterns such as embroidered, floral, abstract, polka, striped, foil print, jacquard, graphical, geometrical and many others. The striped pattern is simple and bold and creates a perfect balance.
Make sure to consider all the above points while choosing new cushions to find the perfect match as per the style and mood of your home.
