Almost all homes have cushions in some form or the other. Cushions make sitting comfortable and are usually accessories with the sofa. However, there are many different ways to use cushions for your home decor. A generous use of cushions makes your home look cosy and comfortable. They can also be used to add some decorative touches to your mundane furniture.
There are many types of cushions that can be used for different purposes at home. For example, the large cushions can be used for sitting down on the ground. You can also sleep on them. Other types of cushions like the long oriental ones are for arm support. You can lean on them while relaxing on a Persian rug or carpet.
You can also use cushions to add a dash of colour to your home. Different types of coloured cushions helps bring about contrast and spunk in your home decor. And the best part is that you can keep changing the cushion covers, and thus the colours of your cushions. You can also use cushions on your bed to prop yourself up as you watch television or read. Cushions on your reading chair provide rest to your back.
Here are some of the best ideas to use cushions to add some cheer to your home decor.
On The Couch
Your sofa set needs a number of small or medium sized cushions. Depending on the type of sofa you have, you can choose round, square or rectangular cushions.
On The Bed
On the bed, you have the pillows that you sleep on. Apart from that, you can prop yourself up on cushions. Match these cushions with your pillow covers and bed spread.
Sitting On Cushions
There are some types of large over-sized cushions. You play with these cushions on the ground and sit on them. Choose dark and bright colours for these cushions because they get dirty easily.
For Ground Seating
In Oriental cultures, sofas are not used for sitting. The sitting room has carpets and rugs to sit on. You can use large and comfortable cushions with silk covers for such a set-up.
On Reading Chair
We all like to recline and rest when we are reading for pleasure. So, back-support cushions like these are very useful on reading chairs.
Designer cushions usually have frills, lace and appliques. Here are some designs for such cushions. You can easily try other creative ideas for designer cushions.
Cushions For Contrast
Sometimes cushions can add much needed colour to your decor. For example, if your couch is white, you can have bright neon coloured cushions on. If your bedspread is black, arrange blood red cushions for dramatic effect.
The traditional Oriental cushions look like side pillows. These cushions are elongated and adorned in silks. These pillows are used as arm-rests.
Cushions For Kids
Kids like to have fun with their cushions. You can have interesting shapes of cushions like heart, star and triangles for your kid's bedroom.
