Don’t forget the decorative pillow inserts

Remember, for each pillow cover you will need a pillow insert, or form.

The decorative pillow insert

In some cases, you will already have an existing pillow that you need a cover for. In the event that you don’t, or you would really just like to replace what you have, then you need a decorative pillow insert. There are many products to choose from depending on your size and material preferences.

The material the Decorative pillow Inserts are made of can be hypoallergenic polyester; a down alternative super soft microfiber; actual goose down; or an outdoor water and mold resistant hypoallergenic stuffing material. I’m sure there are more to choose from, but these are the ones I would suggest using.

My favorite are the Foamily Set of 4-18 x 18 Premium Hypoallergenic Stuffer Pillow Inserts.  They are made from Virgin polyester fibers, these pillows will not only resist Dust Mite, Mildew and mold, they won’t stir up any allergies for your loved ones or guests.  They are made in the USA and are washable.  They can be purchased individually or in sets of 2, 3, or 4.

Choose sizes for the Decorative pillow inserts

There are quite a few standard sizes of pillow inserts that the decorative pillow covers are made to fit. Square sizes are:

  • 16″ x 16″
  • 18″ x 18″
  • 20″ x 20″
  • 22″ x 22″
  • 30″ x 30″

Lumbar sizes:

  • 12″ x 18″
  • 12″ x 20″
  • 14″ x 20″
  • 14″ x 24″


The above lumbar pillows are another favorite.  They are also the Foamily brand.  They are made from Virgin polyester fibers, these pillows will not only resist Dust Mite, mildew and mold, they won’t stir up any allergies for your loved ones or guests.  They are made in the USA and are washable.   The set of two are $17.99.

Now all you need to do is decide how many of each size pillow covers you will need.  So the answer to the question what comes first, the insert or the cover is still unknown.  I’m pretty sure that I would want to select my covers first – Then stuff each and every one of them with a new decorative pillow insert.

It is still up to you

You will be the one determining if old pillows can be recovered or not.  You will choose what size you will need for the sofa, bed or floor.  You will be selecting the perfect color combinations to enhance your home decor.  I am here to answer questions and offer suggestions to make the process a little easier.
