How to Choose Throw Pillows For Bed
We all love having the best throw pillows, right? Also gone by the names accent and decor pillows these pillows give an extra piazza to the room. We often get caught up in the regular bed pillows that we often forget about these precious gems.
But be aware there are a couple rules to keep in mind when going about choosing the right throw pillow. If you are new to the pillow picking outing continue below to read a few key principles to keep in mind to choosing the best accent pillows for bed.
Sizing the Best Throw Pillows
This is hugely important. You aren’t going to want one pillow morphing your entire bed (or in cases your couch, if your tend to find that a comfier place). But you also don’t want to get a pillow so small that it’s more just in the way than anything else. A standard size throw pillow is about 16-18″x16-18″.
You also don’t want to get 4 pillows all the same size. Alternate the sizing and your bedding will be opened up to endless possibilities of dimensions.
As with picking out any kind of pillow, fill is very vital. We talk about these aspects on most of my pillow pages because fill really does make a difference. There is nothing worse than buying a pillow, bringing it home and finding out after a couple weeks or use that it’s a dud.
Goose is obviously going to be the best option for longevity, but also the most expensive. Polyester, foam, or a synthetic mix are going to be more budget friendly but make sure you are picking when purchasing. Buy a firmer one with the intent of it loosing up over time rather than a softer one only to have it look frumpy after a couple weeks.
Pattern or Solid?
Keeping in mind the pattern or solid debate is another key aspect. When choosing a solid, especially if it’s bright, is going to be your foundation or your eye-catcher, if you will for your room. Try not to over stimulate with too many bright colors.
Rather, go ahead and place a patterned pillow in front of the solid pillows to really bring the out accent (accent pillow, get it? Accent? ha.) By complementing the 2 differences it really pops a room.
And if you are really daring, go ahead and try mixing different kinds of patterns. I know, scary, right?
Strength in numbers?
It’s easy to get overzealous with pillows. They are so beautiful, so fun. But also, like many things in life, in moderation.
A huge thing to keep in mind that goes along with this is not to buy on a whim. Choosing the best throw pillows is best as a calculated buy. I mean, you need to have fun with it. Definitely buy a pillow if you just can’t live without it, but if you are going for a specific look stick with your idea and your budget and I’m sure you’ll end up satisfied.
This means not having 10 accent pillows for bed. First, I don’t know how one could sleep with that many decor pillows (note: I do realize that there are people that sleep with 10 bed pillows. Decor pillows? Not so much.) Second, like it was said, moderation is key to keeping it clean yet giving it the pop your bedding needs.

I’m gonna be honest, most of these reviews will be because I think these pillows are adorable. It’s hard to actually review too many decor pillows because there are soooooo many. So instead we are going to focus mainly on quality and the manufacturers that have a good reputation more than anything. I really feel like that will get your the best accent pillow review.

When the pillow goes through shipping sometimes the fur takes a beating. But the easiest way to get that faux fur feeling back is to simply brush it.
