If you want to put more character in your house, pillows can help. Besides all that, the smart and intelligent use of pillows can make a bland-looking space appear to be more inviting, homey, and comfortable. 

We want to show you below how pillows can be taken advantage of for this purpose. Whether you are planning to sell your house or you just want to revamp your home interiors, you will find these suggestions we have here interesting enough. Here are some tips you can decorate your space with pillows.  

How Many Pillows Should You Use? 

When it comes to using pillows for decorative purposes, it’s important to observe balance here. Make sure you don’t have too little or too many pillows. 

The cardinal rule here is having an odd number of pillows will make for the most natural, inviting appeal. If you have a smaller sofa, use only 3 pillows, and 5 if you have a larger one. 

For chairs, it’s best to have only one. It is a different story though when it comes to the bed. The more pillows you throw in a bedroom, the more luxurious, relaxing, and inviting this space feels. 

If you happen to have a full or large bed, it is safe to have an accent pillow, 2 shams, and 2 sleeping pillows. If you are more for that luxurious vibe on the bed, adding 2 euro shams or large square pillows, a breakfast pillow and 2 accent pillows will give that feel.  

How to Choose Which Pillows to Use?

You can make no mistake in choosing pillows to use if you will ensure that the pattern and color of the fabric of your pillow will coordinate with the room color scheme. Begin by picking an accent pillow of solid color first. For dimensions, it should be 18 to 22-inch square. Arrange your pillows in a particular pattern or design.

If you want to achieve a more layered look, make use of pillows of different sizes and shapes. The materials by which your pillow comes in will also help in creating an impact on how your space is designed. Linen or cotton fabric help create a more casual feel, whereas silk and velvet give a more luxurious vibe.

How to Place the Pillows?

This part here can be a bit of fun, too. I prefer to have some element of symmetry on a sofa. I can achieve this by having 2 pillows on one side and then two also on the other. 

In my bedroom, what I do is I make my sleeping pillows lay flat on my bed. I also have 2 regular shams, but I have them up against my sleeping pillows, with the accent pillow right at the center of the bunch. 

If you have euro shams, you can place them at the back. Next to them would be the sleeping pillows, resting on the euro shams.  

As earlier mentioned, throw pillows can wield some kind of magic to a monotonous, insipid-looking room. 

Knowing exactly how to use them to your advantage when styling a house for sale will help you sell your property at top dollar price. After all, these accent features for your indoor spare are practically very easy on the budget.
