Pillows are an essential part of any bed. There are different types of pillows used for different purposes such as luxury, ordinary comfort, decoration and even medical reasons. The one thing that all pillows have in common is that they usually are very plain to look at and pillow cases are the solution to this problem.
Pillow cases can be used to add a little colour to the room, like in the case of throw pillows add a pillow cover made of silk or satin and it would produce an allure of luxury. Pillow cases are also used to preserve the pillow or hide a dirty pillow. If a pillow has started to look worn out but can still be used, you could just cover it up with a great pillow cover. The right pillow case can brighten a space very well. Pillow covers come in handy in a number of ways. For instance, when you have guests over all you have to do is slip on a new pillow cover on to your pillows and hand them over (rather than washing the whole pillow). Hospitals use disposable pillow covers to prevent any spread of infection or viruses.
Choosing Your Pillow cover
Choosing a pillow cover depends on a number of factors, the occasion, type of fabric or even how the case closes. If you are looking for a something to bring life to a room or for decorative purposes choose a case that will complement the colour of the room, the best fabric for this is heavy embroidered silk. For example, a deep red pillow case with gold work in a room with off-white walls will give it a classy, timeless look to the room. Cotton or light silk pillow covers are the best used to cover the pillows that you sleep on.
Pillow cover sizes
There are a number of different sized pillows and most pillow covers are made to accommodate these standard sizes. The standard sizing is 50.8 cm x 76.2 cm, a small square throw pillow is 40.64 x 40.64 cm a large square is 66.04 x 66.04 cm. Remember to check the size of your pillow before you buy the appropriate pillow cover.
