Pillow Talk - How Many Pillows Should You Have on Your Bed
We spend a lot of time of our lives on our beds, or close to our beds, and is there a better feeling than looking at your bed and thinking "Oh that looks nice and cosy, I love my bed"?
Well, a better feeling is to sink in your bed, but if your bed is inviting is a lot nicer, isn't it?
For our bed to look inviting, one of the things we can use is pillows.
Oh so many pillows. How many is the ideal number?
Well, for sleeping purposes, I have researched and found that the best option is to have either 1 layer or 2 layers of pillows per person. This will depend on the pillow itself and how you feel more comfortable to lie.
What about the decorative pillows?
Some say there will never be too many, some say more than 2 is too much.
This is a personal preference, so there is no right or wrong.
I have found 2 guides that are pretty awesome to keep in mind about pillows.
This one is a recommendation of how your bed should look like when you are trying to sell your house.
I thought this would be good to display because it is a bed that will be accepted by most people as a good looking bed - hence the state agents advice on it.
This gives 3 layers of pillows that could be used for sleeping plus 2 decorative pillows.
You could invert it to 2 layers of normal pillows plus 3 decorative pillows.
It seems that the most aesthetically pleasing pillow display is the odd number of pillows.
To give you more ideas on how to display different varieties of pillow formation here is the other guide I found really interesting:
I personally lay on my bed 2 layers of sleeping pillows plus 3 decorative pillows.
What about you? How do you like your bed to look?
