  1. Determine the area- More than anything, the placement of your cushion pillows Each room in your house has its definition. For the bedroom, you need to get cushions in monochromatic shades to maintain the subtlety of the area, something minimal and functional that matches the color of your bed sheets. In your living room area, an empty sofa is like an open canvas. It's the place where you host your guests. Here you need to make a statement and with the festive season approaching you can enhance the aura of your space with decorative cushions featuring vibrant colors and bold patterns.
  1. Pick the color and pattern- Colors and patterns for your cushion pillows play a vital role in their placement. The right combination of both, paired with the decor of the room ties the room together and elevates the aesthetic. Make sure to consider the existing color scheme and pattern of your room. Eg- If you have a neutral theme area, choose a rug with vibrant or contrasting shades. This will not only add balance to your space but also make each element in your decor stand out.
  2. The texture- The texture of your cushions significantly impacts the overall ambiance of your room. Cushions with smooth and silk textures create a high-end atmosphere while knotted woolen cushions enhance comfort and cotton cushions subtly add elegance. According to the use, functional or decorative, make sure to pick the right texture and material for your cushions to maintain the balance in your decor.
  3. The Size- Size does matter when you incorporate cushions into your decor. While pickling cushion pillows for bedroom, you can choose rectangular cushions.
