Change the Look of Your Living Room with Cushions

Whenever it comes to living rooms, its the small efforts that pay off. Whether they are small changes or just simply moving around the setting these steps can really spruce up a living place. While re-decoration calls for a lot of effort and money, consider the idea of using nothing but cushions to add in some extra texture, color and even patterns. If selected correctly, cushions really can pull together all the elements of the room and bring in balance to a mismatched room. Here a few cushion experiments you can immediately try:

Different Sizes and Types of Cushions

Just like the different patterns, textures and colors, you can actually introduce in different sized cushions as well. This is done to give some depth to your living room. For instance, having all the same sized cushions will look boring and clinical. Instead you can add in rectangular shaped pillows along with the standard square type and this will give more perspective. And while different sizes are being talked about, different types of pillows can be introduced in the lounge as well. While a backrest pillow can give a more casual look to your lounge, a u shaped pillow can perfectly compliment your u-shaped sectional sofas, all while adding in some extra comfort factor.

Select your Color Pallet

Be it any kind of cushion or cushions, they can either make everything work in the room or just make it look like a hot mess. This is why, while you are busy paying everything else attention, an easy way to keep track of things is to stick to some color pallet in your cushion set as well. Imagine a plain room and adding in some sequenced based bold colored cushions. Uplifts the image doesn’t it?

Select the Cushions

How many cushions do you need? and exactly where do you plan to put them? On the sofas or are we talking about the floor cushions? All these questions are important. While there is no hard and fast rule to how many cushions can be set in a living room, just be sure not to over do it. Plus, you can break the monotony and add in two to three different hues of cushions. And if you want to stick to your colour scheme, then you can surely think of adding in some texture, let’s say some fluffy furry cushions on plain sofa sets for instance. It will be the over all combination that will put the whole look together. However, the more number of pillows, the more repetition of combination will be needed.
