A decorative bed pillow offers little functional use. It does not provide the necessary neck alignment and support for nightly sleeping. However, a decorative bed pillow contributes greatly to the style and aesthetics of the bed. Available in a large variety of sizes, shapes, colors, patterns and materials, decorative bed pillows (also called accent or throw pillows) are often the "finishing touch" of the bedding. Decorative bed pillows are popular "do it yourself" (DIY) projects. They allow homeowners to create "one of a kind" pillows to perfectly complement their bedding. All that is required is a sewing machine, fabric, filling material (cotton batting, foam, down) and plenty of imagination.
There are many designs and styles to choose from when it comes to decorative bed pillows. There are many styles of floral, striped, plaid and solid color bed pillows to choose from in order to compliment your bedroom décor. When choosing decorative pillows for your bedroom, be sure to choose styles which will not only reflect your personality, but will also match the décor of your room and bed accessories. You can also mix and match a number of styles in order to add creativity and uniqueness to your room.
Decorative bed pillows are usually only displayed on your bed throughout the day. When it comes time to go to bed they are usually placed on the floor or in a container while you sleep on pillows which are better suited for sleeping purposes. These pillows will not support your neck and head and usually do not provide very much comfort for sleeping.
The price of decorative pillows depends highly on the size, material and style of the pillow. The quality of the pillows you choose will be based on how much you are willing to spend. The amount of money you are willing to spend will not only determine the quality of the pillows, but will more importantly, deem how long they will last.
