There are many reasons to invest in a selection of cushions to use throughout your home and even outside if you wish. There are always those who think that cushions are an unnecessary item that only serves to clutter a room but we are here to convince you otherwise.
Cushions for comfort
Everyone knows how nice it feels to snuggle up on a comfy sofa or chair with a good book, a drink or to watch something on TV. Cushions can make a huge difference to the comfort of a seat that is perhaps made of hard foam or leather, and as well as comfort for snuggling a good cushion can provide support for your back, arms and even feet. If you read or like to have a drink sitting in bed then some fairly firm cushions at your back can make you feel so much more comfortable as well as giving a nice splash of colour and a luxurious feel to your room.
Cushions for guests
Guest rooms can be so much more welcoming with some colourful cushions and throws to give warmth and depth. Cushions are invaluable for nursing mothers to support back and arms whilst feeding baby and are brilliant also for propping your child up for feeding or photo shoots. The elderly can benefit greatly from the support and comfort that a good cushion can give. Helping to achieve comfort when sitting for extended periods of time, and help prevent bed sores, cushions can be placed behind the lower back, head and shoulders.
Cushions for decoration
Cushions can lift a tired and jaded room and give a whole new dimension to your décor at a fraction of the cost of redecorating throughout. Think about adding cushions that pick out a certain colour of your room to add depth and contour. A tasteful arrangement of cushions can add depth and colour to any room in the house and turn a cold and uninviting space into a warm and welcoming area.
A colourful cushion on a solitary chair in the hallway can make a welcoming statement to guests and make people feel cosy and at home instantly. Children love to lounge on cushions on the floor and of course who wouldn’t provide a nice comfy cushion for their cat or dog, albeit that it might be an old one that has been replaced by something new
Cushions come in an enormously diverse range of colours shapes and sizes so that you can create you very own style of space that suits your home and your needs. If you are unsure of how to buy your cushions then take a look online or just browse through your local shops to get an idea of what is out there. When you decide on the colours you want then take a little time to work out the size and shape of your cushions.
A fantastic arrangement can be made with a couple of large cushions at the back and some smaller perhaps differently shaped cushions to the front. Don’t be afraid to choose contrasting colours and shapes and experiment with them to get just the look you want.
