How adding a Pouf Can Highlight Your Bedroom Decor
Accessorizing your bedroom with a pouf can highlight your bedroom’s decor by adding in a coordinating color, a similar pattern/motif, and/or serve as a practical decoration. You can choose a color that’s in the same family as the rest of the room, but what’s most important is that you find a color that conveys the same style and tone. The same applies to patterns. When you find these subtle connections between all your decorative elements, that makes the room feel cohesive and allows each item to shine.
Decorating with a Bedroom Styled Pouf
When you’re decorating with a bedroom pouf, you can find one that fits whatever your personal style is. Poufs may be fairly new in terms of the long history of interior design, but the patterns, shapes, colors, etc of poufs lend them to all sorts of styles. Rest assured, whether you’re looking for a farmhouse pouf or a moroccan pouf, you can find a bedroom ottoman pouf that fits your personal style.
Choosing Which Bedroom Pouf Is Right For You
Bedroom poufs come in a variety of styles, so early on, it’s important to think through a few key areas.
Purpose: Poufs are versatile in both style and functionality. You always have the option of using your bedroom pouf purely as decoration, but you can also use it as a pouf ottoman by your favorite chair and rest your feet. Other uses include using it as a small table, a spare seat, or some combination of these purposes.
Size, Shape, and Structure: Now that you’ve determined your pouf’s purpose(s), you need to focus on the size, shape, and structure of the pouf. Sizewise, consider how wide and tall you need it to be to fulfill its purposes. Shape can be determined by what other shapes you include in the room, or if you want to add in a unique shape, this is a good opportunity. There are even poufs that are structured with backs on them, so if you solely want a comfortable seat, look at those options. Finally, the structure is how dense it is, and what purposes it can fulfill. If you want a soft chair, your bedroom pouf will be more plush, but if you want it as a side table, you want something firm enough to hold your items.
Fabric/Material: The material or fabric of the pouf affects the bedroom pouf’s overall tone and style, but it also impacts its function. Poufs are available in many different materials, such as jute, wool, cotton, polyester, etc. Some materials are easier to clean than others, and depending on where you want your pouf to be, you should choose a material that suits the pouf’s purpose. Even if you don’t plan on taking your bedroom pouf ottoman outside, you can still purchase a soft outdoor pouf, which is easy to clean and can stand up to life.
Pattern: Some poufs will come with patterns imprinted into the fabric, while others may use texture and different pile heights to establish the design. When you’re choosing a pattern, find one that has similarities to your other decor, such as similar shapes or lines. When you’re looking at patterns, it’s also a good time to look at any textures the bedroom pouf ottoman has and how that is its own form of design.
Color: Being intentional with color is important with any piece of decor, even your bedroom pouf. You can choose a pouf that is in the same color family as the other decor, but when you do, make sure that the colors convey the same tone. Neutral colors like tan, white, grey, or black are popular choices, but you can also choose other popular colors like blue, green, pink, etc. Whatever you need for your space stylistically, you can find a pouf in the color and design you’re looking for.
