What different pillow styles and sizes are there?

After selecting your mattress, your pillows are second in enhancing your overall comfort and sleeping experience. Bed pillows are available in three standard sizes — standard, queen, and king with pillowcases in corresponding sizes. It’s usually easier to find bedding for your pillows if you go with these standard sized pillows. Euro shams are larger and square in size and are used in addition for support or to create more visual depth and layers to a bed due to their larger size. Depending on your support needs, orthopedic pillows may be a wise choice because they can target specific regions on your body that may be neglected by regular pillows and result in soreness in the morning.

What is the best filling for my bed pillows?

When selecting a pillow, choosing a type of pillow stuffing will depend on your personal sleep preferences and if you have any allergies. A pillow can be filled with foam, synthetic fillers, or natural down and animal feathers. Hypoallergenic alternatives to down are also available for those who love the feeling of a down pillow, but are allergic to feathers. Some pillows are also available based on your preferred sleeping position, and density can vary depending on that sleep preference as well.

Should I add decorative accent pillows?

Throw pillows and accent pillows can enhance the overall feel of a bedroom. In an otherwise monochromatic bedroom color palette, a pillow can add the perfect graphic punch necessary to avoid creating a monotonous and predictable space. Pillows can provide the small burst of color needed in neutral or minimal bedroom designs, and can also work in reverse. A strong neutral palette can continue with pillows in order to complete a sophisticated space. To breathe new life into a bed or bedroom, simply switch out the bed pillows. Whether through sheer numbers alone or with a bold and daring graphic print, you can easily create a stylishly cushioned space.
