Throw pillows or accent pillows are great additions that will complete any bedroom. Regardless of the style-- modern, traditional, contemporary, or eclectic-- if your bed looks drab, throw a couple of colorful or trendy throw pillows, and viola, you've added some character. But after you've created your wonderful sanctuary for sleep, and it's time to go to bed, where do you put all those pillows? As always, they get tossed on the floor creating trip hazards or clutter until the bed is made up again. This is also very annoying in guest bedrooms, since your guest may not know what to do with all those pillows. Here are some solutions, which may help you end your nightly pillow fight.
- Make space for your pillows in a closet or wardrobe. If you have a nice armoire, closet or wardrobe in your bedroom, save a little room for your pillows.
- Place your pillows in a chest, storage bench, or trunk at the foot of the bed. If you have a decorative chest or trunk in your bedroom, put it to good use! This is a great way to stow your throw pillows as well as extra blankets and linens.
- If you have a window seat with storage underneath, use that as your pillow stash.
- Find some nice plastic storage bins that you can slide under your bed for your pillows. Most big department stores carry these, which are designed specifically to stow under your bed.
These are but a few ideas on how to store your decorative throw pillows at night, until they're ready to adorn your bed in the morning.
