How to choose cushion covers to revitalise your home

cushion covers to revitalise your home

If your living room or bedroom needs a quick refresh without redecorating, new cushion covers can bring that important revival you are looking for without the expense of new furniture, curtains or carpets. In just one simple step you can brighten up your living space and give it a new lease of life.

Whether you’re replacing existing cushion covers or creating new ones, a bed or sofa finished with fresh cushions can make a huge difference to the look at feel of any room.

Our fabric selection for indoor use comes from Cantare. Designed in Britain, Cantare fabric is water cleanable, hard-wearing and comes in a range of 21 gorgeous colours. The fabric is wonderfully soft and any stains or spills can be cleaned using just water and a lint-free cloth. However, if marks prove to be stubborn you can just pop the cushion cover in the washing machine at 30 degrees.

Here are some simple tips on how to choose cushion covers to create a welcoming, colour-coordinating room.

• Look around your home for inspiration. Go for tones and colours that complement or match your furniture, curtains or wall colour schemes.

• Search for ideas on Instagram and Pinterest as they provide fantastic interior design inspiration. Then you can apply these ideas to your life, taking the bits that will work for you.

• Decide what look are you aiming for. Minimalism is always popular, or contrasting bold colours could be just the boost your room needs. Even scattering a few neutral coloured cushion covers will bring your interior up to date without being too overpowering.

• Think about how you want to use your cushions. Are they purely for decoration or do they need to be functional, supporting your body whilst sitting, watching the TV or reading? Choose washable, durable, easy care cushion covers if cushions will be in constant use. And only choose expensive or dry clean only fabric if your cushions are meant just for decorative purposes.
