They say that home is where the heart is, and this could not be any closer to the truth. Our house is the place where we spent the most part of the day, and as such, we want to feel as comfortable in it as possible. The decoration of our house has always played a tricky aspect into this equation, since we want to feel comfortable in our house but at the same time, we want our home to be decorated in a way that reflects our style. Thankfully, there is a simple way to achieve this stylish effect without having to give up on all the comfort and cosiness a home should have: cushion covers. 

The world of cushion covers

Cushion covers are an aspect that gets often overlooked when it comes to home decoration. People tend to think about cushions as something that simply makes their houses feel cosier, but having cool cushion covers can completely change the aspect of a room. Cushion covers can come in different sizes, colours, materials or fabrics, giving us endless choices to express ourselves.

There are many aspects that can define the way our cushions covers looks, such as:

The colours

Cushion covers can come in a wide variety of colours and shade, allowing our cushions to either perfectly blend with the rest of our home decoration or to stand out, attracting our visitors’ attention, the choice is up to you. The colours more commonly used in cushion covers are white, grey, blue, green, black, pink, cream, red, orange, yellow, purple, or, if you want a bolder look, you can always use multicoloured covers. 

The sizes

Cushions can vary vastly in size depending on their purpose. For example, if we are decorating a king bed, we will use bigger cushions than when decorating our kids’ nursery. Cushion covers come in all sizes, from 20 cm (8 inches) covers to 80cms (32 inches) covers.

The materials

The material we choose for our cushion covers can influence not only how they look, but also how they feel to the touch. Among the materials most commonly used for cushion covers we can find velvet, waterproof, linen, leather, cotton, polyester, silk and wool. All these materials have a really soft touch, are very affordable, are very durable and come in many designs, so you can choose the one that better reflects your style.
