Cushions can help you bind the room together. You can decide the color according to what mood you want for your room and the rest of the elements of your room, that can include sofas, artworks, lightings and other furniture.

Not just colors and patterns but even the size of the sofa matters when you plan on adding cushions to it. There is no definite answer on how to know exactly how many cushions to be used particularly. You can freely use as many cushions you want on your sofa, it is all about how you smartly play with the placement of them. The way and key of placing the  cushions matter as the sofas and couches are sitting not just placing cushions, you should make sure you ain't crowding it many cushions.

The size of the sofa matters as when placing too many bright cushions on a smaller couch will look more crowded than appealing. Instead of using bright colors you can go for subtle shades and bright colors in one or two cushions. 

The best way to make your sofa look perfect is not making it crowded but make it look effortless, as you need enough space to make yourself cozy. Even the number of cushions gives symmetric vibes whereas an odd number makes it aesthetic.

While matching things with your sofa youíll be needing vertical and horizontal lines to match. If your space is narrow, think of those lines which can attract eyes. Pair some solid color cushions with line patterns to create and make it impactful. You can blend or choose contrast colors to go with your sofas, make sure you love those colors so you donít get bored of these cushion covers easily. 

If you have small couch or no sofas but arm chairs, youíll be needing single cushions for each chair, smaller couches wonít be able to handle more than two cushions, but using just one cushion would be better for simplicity and space to get cozy, this way you can balance your aesthetic too. Make sure your cushion covers are not crowdong your room and they go well with your roomís aesthetic. You can modify your cushion covers and change them according to the occasions and usage, if you have pets or babies try avoiding cushion covers with embellishments. You can also use one cushion on larger sofas too, it is not mandatory to use more cushions if you have a spacious sofa. A blending colored cushion can make your room look simple yet sophisticated and you wonít even get bored by it soon. ???????
