No matter what size your bed or pillows are, it always looks beautiful if you rest your sleeping pillows vertically against the headboard, and add one or two smaller, accent pillows (or throw pillows) in the middle.
If you are a minimalist when it comes to bedroom décor, you probably won’t want dozens of pillows clogging up your space. Instead, simply lean your sleeping pillows against your headboard and add a smaller accent pillow (or throw pillow) in the middle, for a crisp, neat look. The accent pillow can add a pop of colour to your bed, so you can play with different shades and prints if you wish, or you can stick to a more cohesive colour theme.
If you enjoy creating a decorative space in your bed, then why not add a trendy bolster pillow alongside your sleeping pillows and accent pillow? Not only does a bolster pillow look stylish, but they are super practical – you can tuck it between your legs or place it by your shoulder for extra support during sleep.
If your headboard is large (measuring around 2 feet high, or more), then you definitely have the space to prop up a few extra pillows for decoration. Choose neutral, matching colours which don’t clash, for a streamlined, luxurious appearance.
When decorating a king-size bed, you may find it useful to choose king-size pillows, with accent pillows on either side and a bolster pillow in the centre.
If you are a back sleeper, one pillow underneath the head and one pillow under the knees is the most optimal position. This will keep the neck aligned in a comfortable way and support the natural curve in your lower back. Orthopaedic pillows are also excellent for people with back pain, as these reduce the pressure on your spine and neck.
Even drooling, coughing and sneezing during sleep can transfer viruses onto the pillow. This shows how your pillow could actually be a contaminated surface, which is why it needs to be disinfected regularly, and replaced after no more than 2 years.
If you like cuddling with your furry friend at night, then just know that they will also be bringing its germs into your bed. Your pet can shed hair or dander, transfer infections to you, and even leave traces of fecal mater in your bed- which can transmit parasites and bacteria like E. coli.
Hence, it is super important to clean your pillows and change them regularly, to keep your bedroom germ-free and protect your immune system from harmful pathogens.
