Smarter Home: How Many Pillows Are On Your Bed?

Posted by   + Show Post

Happy Labor Day, friends! Today we have a burning question, one that has plagued all of us at one time or another, I'm sure (yes, that is a tad sarcastic). Since resting is the kind of opposite of labor, I thought it might be appropriate and fun.

Dillywaddle111 writes: Please answer this for me and my husband. We have a lovely master bedroom, with, of course, a bed. It's queen size, and I've decorated it with a gorgeous set of bed linens, include some throw pillows: two regular size with shams and three booster pillows to coordinate. My husband thinks this is too many pillows. I disagree. To add to this, he is always perplexed by where to put them when he heads to bed, as I don't want him just throwing them on the floor. Can you solve this for us?

Ah, bedroom issues of the fluffiest proportion! Yes, it is a dilemma for sure, one that is not really life or death, but these little woes can pile up and seem larger than they should (my husband and I had one about the location of his dirty socks a while back).

We all see those lovely bedding sets, the pillows and coordinating sheets that make that bed look so inviting, but what does one do with them all when you are in the bed -- and how many is too many? Well, the answer to latter questions an individual I can't answer for you, but I can help with the "where to put them" problem.

Since the floor isn't an option, try one of these places:

On a shelf in the closet - Do you have a closet in the room? I'm assuming yes. Clear off a shelf or put a plastic bin in there to store the extra pillows while you get your ZZZs.

In an accent chair - Get a small accent chair, one without arms, to stick in the corner or along a wall and pile them high on there.

End of the bed bench - Another great excuse to go shopping, look for a cool low bench for the end of your bed and lay them on there when you head to dreamland. I adore those leather (or leather-like) bench-ish ottmans.

How many pillows are on your bed (or your kids)? Where do you put them when you are sleeping?

2. Decorative pillows annoy me. I'm the only one who sees my bed. Who cares if it has fancy pillows?! Lol

We have 4. 2 are solid colors that are on the bottom and then 2 that match the bedding. DH says those are our decoration pillows, lol.

We have 4 pillows on our bed with a spare sitting next on my side in case I decide I need a 3rd for myself. I do sleep alone at night though so all 4 of those pillows get used by me lol.

We use 6 to sleep on and 4 that are decorative and are put aside at night.
