Breathe new life into your space by adding some Decorative Accent Pillows.
You look around at the pillows you have had in the family room on the sofa, on the floor and on the chairs. You actually like the size and shapes of the pillows, if only they weren’t so worn.
Instead of throwing them out, you can easily find pillow covers that will fit right over the old pillows. If they happen to be a zippered throw pillow, then you would remove the old cover before putting on the new one. Otherwise, you can just place the new pillow cover over the old one for a fresh, new look.

You also have the option of starting fresh and buying all new pillows, including the forms, for your family room. Just make sure that when you are shopping for them, that the price is for the complete pillow. If you buy only the cover, you will need to purchase the pillow inserts as well.

You need to decide the number of pillows ideal for your space.
Determine if the pillows you have scattered about have been fully functional, or if occasionally you have come up 1 or 2 pillows short on movie night. Make a mental note or write down which pillows to keep and their sizes. Then determine how many additional pillows you will need.

Starting from scratch?
It is relatively easy to decide how many pillows you will need. Basically, it will depend on how you use the family room. If you have a sofa, then you want at least 3 good sized decorative pillows on it. More if it is an oversize sofa. Each chair should have one or two accent pillows. If the kids like to sit on pillows on the floor, then one large pillow for each child should do nicely. Get some ideas of coordinating pillows sets selected for you.

Selecting the size and shapes of your pillows may take a bit of decision-making.
A typical decorative pillow for a couch is 22″ or 24″ This size pillow would be placed at each end of the sofa. You would also add one or two smaller accent pillows 18″ or 20″ toward the center of the sofa. Keep in mind, you want to leave enough space to sit comfortably on the couch with the pillows.
You may or may not want or need an additional pillow on your chairs, depending on how comfortable the chair is. If you want to add a bolster or lumbar pillow or one that is smaller than those for the sofa, you certainly can do so. Floor pillows are another option to consider.
