Pillow Sets: Tips for Finding the Right Style
How much comfort is too much? When it comes to the comfort of a couch or a bed, pillows will make or break the comfort of a room.
But how do you know what types of pillows to buy? Or how many throw pillows should be on your bed and couch?
There are both practical and stylized reasons for purchasing pillow sets. Keep reading to learn more about how to bring maximum comfort to your home.
Choosing Pillow Sets
When thinking about throw pillow sets, there are a few things to keep in mind. Because throw pillows are decorative, it's important to have the styles and colors coordinate with the rest of the room.
For example, your bedroom pillow set should follow the color scheme of the rest of the bedroom. Your bedroom colors should only be a couple of colors, which means your throw pillows should follow that same rule. This will tie your entire room together and make it look and feel cozier.
The amount of decorative pillow sets you should have on your bed is partially your preference and partially the size of your bed. For example, a king-sized bed can have between four and six throw pillows. This allows the bed to look cozy without taking up too much space and making it look crowded.
Once your set of bedroom pillows that you sleep with is on your bed, your decorative pillows should come next. Decorate it with one solid-colored print set and one bold pattern set that matches your color scheme. The bold print or pattern will add dimension and spice up the style of the room. The solid-colored pillows will balance the bold print.
If you don't want to use a bold print or any print at all, opt for a different color from your other solid color choice. This can still add dimension without complicating the colors or style of your room.
The same ideas can be applied to throw pillows on your couch or sofa. Whether you want to mix your solid-colored pillows with a bold pattern, or you just want to keep them all solid, they should effectively coordinate and tie the room together.
Choose different pillow sets with different sizes to effectively layer the pillows. While there's nothing wrong with just two pillows that are the same size, they will layer better if one is around half the size of the other pillow.
At the end of the day, pillows are meant to bring comfort to your home. Choose the colors, styles, and sizes that will make you feel happy and comfortable in your home.
Benefits of Silk Bedding/Pillowcases
You might be wondering what all the fuss is about with silk bedding. Why should you think about silk bedding when choosing pillow sets? Is it more than just a style choice?
Actually, yes. There are some great benefits to having silk bedding, including silk pillowcases.
The silk offers benefits for your hair and skin while you're getting your beauty sleep.
Silk is softer and more gentle on the skin and hair. There's also less friction between the pillowcase and your face. This prevents any sort of irritation or damage to your skin and hair.
Silk also doesn't absorb as much oil and bacteria the same way cotton pillowcases do. Cotton will absorb even natural and necessary oils in your skin and hair. The result leaves your face and hair dry and drained of natural oils.
The oils and bacteria that cotton sops up can also be re-transferred to your face and hair, making it oily and dirty.
Because silk doesn't absorb as much as cotton, it leaves a cleaner surface for you to sleep on. This also means that silk pillowcases can leave your skin hydrated because it doesn't absorb as much moisture while you sleep.
Silk pillowcases and bed sheets are a game-changed to get your beauty rest. You'll notice a difference when you switch.
Benefits of Good Pillows
Now that you have some knowledge on how to style your home with pillows and understand the benefits of silk bedding, you should also be aware of the difference good quality pillows will make in your home.
Did you know that pillows have a lifespan? It's recommended that pillows be replaced every 1 to 2 years. This is for a variety of reasons.
First, it's so that your pillows continue to be comfortable and supportive while you sleep. The longer you've used a pillow, the less supportive and effective it becomes over time.
Additionally, a pillow you've used for a long time is not as clean. Changing your pillows every 1 to 2 years will ensure you're sleeping on a clean pillow that's free of allergens.
If your pillow feels lifeless and is sagging, or is starting to feel uncomfortable, it's time to buy a new pillow.
Another benefit of a good pillow is that it'll help you get a good night's sleep. If you're having trouble sleeping or wake up with a sore neck, it's because the pillow isn't doing its job anymore. A good pillow can help relieve muscle and joint pains from sleeping and provide you with a better night's rest.
