Pillow cases add a colourful finishing flourish to the top of your bed and ensure this essential piece of bedding stays clean, fresh and ready for your tired head. Add a colourful pillow case to your bed to brighten up your room or match your pillow case to your duvet cover to tie your interior design together.
Like sheets and quilt covers, most pillow cases are made from cotton. A natural fibre, cotton is very absorbent and is also excellent at wicking moisture away from the body. This helps you to stay cool and comfortable throughout the night and can improve the quality of your sleep.
You can also find pillow cases made from other materials like polyester, bamboo and satin. Each of these fabrics has its own benefits, so you just need to work out which you find most comfortable.
A lot of the time, you’ll get pillow cases covers, a quilt cover and a fitted sheet in a bedding set. When you buy a set, all the pieces will generally be made from the same fabric and will boast the same design and finish. This is a great option if you like your bedding to match.
If you want to go for a more eclectic look in your bedroom, you can buy your pillow cases separately. This gives you the option to mix your bedding up a bit and add even more colour, pattern or texture to your interior.
Bright pillow cases can give your bed a real pop of colour and add an accent tone to your interior design theme. Echo this colour in other parts of your room to bring your home to life and give your bedroom a design feel.
When buying pillow cases separately, make sure you check the size. Like mattress, pillows can be standard or king sized. However, even standard pillows can vary significantly in their dimensions, so make sure you buy the right covers for your bedding.
