The bed is the first step in creating a well-put-together bedroom. After all, it serves as the room’s main focal point. It doesn’t necessarily follow that you should adorn it with 500 frilly throw pillows. Even if you like to swish the duvet and call it a day, you may still create a tidy bedding arrangement by stacking your pillows for five more seconds.
You can make pillow arrangements in various ways, some more formal than others. For example, you can load props recklessly, mix sizes, add decorative forms, or arrange everything symmetrically. Based on the sizes for bed pillows, pillow covers, and pillow protectors, we’ve elaborated a few ideas about how to decorate the bed with Bedding N Bath pillows and cushions.
Queen Bed Pillow Arrangement
- For a simple presentation, neatly stack your pillows for sleeping on top of one another. Also, cover the top pillows in regular shams, while the bottom pillows have standard pillowcases. (The shams have a flange all the way around.)
- Place a sleeping stack in front of a pair of opulent decorative pillows. To complete the appearance, use a pattern combining colors from your bedding.
- Alternatively, use bedding N Bath pillows with shams of a typical size propped up in front of your sleeping stacks. Light and lightweight feather pillows tend to be floppy and sloppy, so it is recommended to choose pillows with some weight for this.
- Center a single decorative pillow, ideally 20 inches by 20 inches in size, in front of the shams that have been raised.
- Another alternative is to stack pillows with shams before your sleeping pillows and get propped up against the headboard. A smaller 12-inch-by-16-inch rectangular pillow that fits in a boudoir sham should be placed in the middle of the bed to complete the look.
- Begin with the arrangement above, but end with two boudoir pillows placed front and center of each pillow sham.
- To make the cushion arrangement, start with a pair of cushions. Bedding N Bath cushion and pillow inserts will give your bed a lovely, high appearance. Add your pillows for sleeping next. Layer standard pillows covered in standard shams directly in front. Next, add a fourth layer of boudoir shams over smaller size pillows. All rectangular pillows are aligned and slightly offset from the cushions, so they peek through. Here, don’t be scared to use a striking design.
- For a cleaner look, use a pair of square cushions, standard shams pushed slightly toward the edge of the bed, and the third layer of boudoir pillows pulled toward the middle. Although it is tidy, there is some tension to keep things intriguing.
- To finish, repeat steps 1 through 2 for the first and second layers, but place one boudoir pillow in the middle of the regular shams. Plus, you must remove pillows on your bed with standard pillowcases.
King Bed Pillow Arrangement
Use either three standard-sized pillows or two king-sized pillows for a king-size bed. A king-size bed takes three square cushions.
- Learn three shams up against the headboard or a wall in the back. (Again, consider using an insert one inch larger than the sham to create a complete, rounded impression.) Add two king-sized pillows covered with shams and three smaller pillows with boudoir shams (12-inches by-16-inches) in the front to complete the look.
- Place three shams behind the bed. Use three queen or standard-size pillows with shams instead of king-size pillows for the second layer, then place two boudoir pillows in the middle of the gaps. (Take note that square cushions frequently match the duvet’s color.)
- Start with the same group of cushions in the back. Add two king-sized pillows with matching shams. Finish by placing two decorative pillows measuring 20 inches by 20 inches in front of the two king-sized shams.
- After setting up the foundation of square cushions in the back, stand three standard-size pillows on top of three additional standard-size pillows with shams. Although the arrangement is basic, the style has some depth.
