Decorative pillows are a great way to add color, texture, and personality to a room. But before you can enjoy the benefits of your new decorative pillows, you need to properly insert the pillows into the covers. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps to properly insert a pillow into a decorative pillow cover.
Step 1: Choose the Right Size
The first step to properly insert a pillow into a decorative pillow cover is to choose the right size pillow. It is important to choose a pillow that is the same size or slightly larger than the pillow cover. This will ensure that the pillow fits snugly and looks great.

Step 2: Fluff the Pillow
Before inserting the pillow, fluff it up to ensure that it is evenly distributed. This will help the pillow look full and avoid any lumps or bumps when placed in the cover.
Step 3: Fold the Pillow in Half
Next, fold the pillow in half lengthwise. This will make it easier to insert the pillow into the cover and ensure that it is evenly distributed.
Step 4: Insert the Pillow
Insert the folded pillow into the cover, making sure that the corners of the pillow match up with the corners of the cover. Start by inserting the folded end of the pillow into the cover first, then unfold the pillow to fill the cover. If necessary, gently adjust the pillow to make sure it is centered and evenly distributed within the cover.
Step 5: Close the Cover
Once the pillow is inserted into the cover, close the cover by zipping it up, buttoning it, or using any other closure method that the cover may have. Make sure that the closure is secure and that the pillow is fully contained within the cover.
Step 6: Adjust and Fluff
After inserting the pillow into the cover, adjust and fluff the pillow as necessary to make sure it looks great. This can be done by gently massaging the pillow to distribute the filling or by giving it a quick shake.
Inserting a pillow into a decorative pillow cover is a simple process that can make a big difference in the look and feel of your room. By choosing the right size pillow, fluffing the pillow, folding it in half, inserting it into the cover, closing the cover, and adjusting and fluffing as needed, you can ensure that your decorative pillows look great and add the perfect finishing touch to your home décor.
