When people come to us at Interiors by Design, we often hear about how they would like to get an interior design service to come in and help them select the pillows and throws they need for their bed.

It is a common request because there are so many people who have issues deciding specifically what kind of pillows and throws make sense for their bed. Today, we will give you some tips on how to select the right ones.

Don’t Forget About the Size of Your Headboard

One of the first things any interior design expert will tell you is that you need to think about the size of your headboard when deciding on what kind of pillows and throws you need to put on your bed.

Those that have a large headboard can probably go with king-sized pillows to accomplish the look they need. However, those who have a smaller headboard may need to look at a stacked pillow option to make their bed look just right as far as the pillows are concerned.

Think About Color Choices

Most people are aware that they need to look at the color choices they opt to make for their pillows and throws on their bed. However, it is still a point worth covering because you don’t want to make a mistake at this point in the process.

Experts recommend selecting colors that match up with each other and are generally neutral in tone. That is to say that you probably don’t want to go with something that is overly vibrant when you don’t need to.

Consider the Size of the Bed

Looking at the size of your bed will help you determine exactly how many throws and pillows you actually need. A twin-sized bed is only going to require one or two pillows and throws. However, a larger bed may obviously need quite a few more than that. You need to think carefully about the number of pillows and throws you put on your bed based on the size of the bed itself.

People sometimes find themselves getting too many pillows or throws for a bed that simply cannot hold that many. Don’t put yourself in that spot. You should only get enough to suit the size bed you have. When you do that, you will be in good shape to take care of your pillow situation without too much hassle.

Arrangement of Pillows Matters

The way you ultimately decide to arrange your pillows plays a role in how you get the most value out of them. If you take some time to focus on this, you might discover which pillow arrangement works for you. For the interior design of your home, make sure you give this its due consideration in time.
