Handwoven VS. Printed Kilim Pillows
Which one is better for you? Handwoven or printed pillows. Home decoration or interior architecture is one of the most developed and enjoyable in the world and always open to innovations. There are many pillows used in home decor. Determining and selecting the most suitable pillow according to style and field by the designer is a very important and difficult task. Materials used 50 years ago are now very popular. The underlying reason for this is very interesting and sad. Due to the development of technology, artificial replicas of many home decoration objects were produced. As a decoration material, replicas were produced too. People who use artificial counterparts, in time, actually understand how harmful these products are to human health. And people now prefer to use natural articles before technology.
For example, people who used to use the wool mattresses in the past preferred beds and quilts made of polyester fiber with technological progress over time. However, as a result of this use, due to skin diseases and other health problems, wool bedding and duvets are preferred again. People who once used natural products, such as the example we have adopted, have turned to goods containing polyester with the advancement of technology, and it is shortly understood which of the lacquer is more valuable. As well as the disadvantages of the merchandise before the technology, there are absolutely disadvantages in the forms after the technology. Because of all these reasons our kilim pillows are really popular in interior design nowadays. The choice is yours. You will choose which disadvantage you will accept in the election.
Washing Kilim Pillows
During the washing kilim pillows, there are points to be considered. As you know, pillow covers are dyed with natural methods and are sensitive to water and moisture. Although kilim pillows can be used outdoors, they must be protected from moisture and liquids because of this sensitivity. Kilim pillows have some colors that can mix with other colors very quickly when wet. This creates a very bad image, but may even become unusable. Washed or exposed to water pillows, must be dried immediately. If you do not have a system that you can dry pillow covers quickly, we recommend that you seek help from a dry cleaning expert. Or, if it's a bit risky, you can use the method we're going to explain.
First of all, let us present our natural soap and water which will not exceed 30 degrees Celsius. As soon as you soak pillows, apply enough natural soap with a brush and foam. Continue scrubbing for 2-3 minutes. Apply the scrubbing of the bottom fabric several times, provided that it does not waste time. And start rinsing quickly with water. The rinsing process should not exceed 2-3 minutes. Then bring kilim pillows to your washing machine to the spin cycle to remove the water from them. With centrifugal force, after we have completely removed the water inside the pillow, we can leave them under direct sunlight to dry completely. Full drying time can take up to 3-4 hours in summer. As you can see, you can wash during the day, preferably at noon. As mentioned at the beginning, you do not need to use a special shampoo in the washing process. If you are going to wash kilim pillows for general cleaning, pure soap will provide the necessary cleaning. It's that easy to wash a kilim pillow, use it on good days.
Kilim Pillow Arrangement
It seems as if kilim pillow arrangement is a trivial part of home decor and design, but that is not the case. These are some of the best ways to raise the status of a house to a home. They are comfy, plush and luxurious; but that is not all that they are. Turkish rugs pack a punch and bring out all the features of the design to make a home look good, inviting and pleasant. Ranging from the scheme of the color to the way tapestries are arranged, these tips will help you arrange your new decorative kilim pillows in a way to make them inspire the beauty and resplendence of your home.
For a Modern Arrangement
Placement and Quantity: When you are trying to nail a modern design in your living area, you should opt for an odd number of bohemian kilim pillows, like seven, five or three rather than the traditional pair. Seven kilim pillows may be cutting it a bit too much, but five is an okay number. You will achieve a cleaner view with a small number of large sizes than you will with a clutter of small cushion covers. Too many smaller pillows create clutter and leave your living area looking like a junk heap of pillows.
Size and Shape: For square sizes, anything from 16 to 24 inches in width is okay. They should be large enough that they can comfortably display very clearly a solid carpet pattern or a solid color. Lumbar shapes can also be a nice addition to get that modern theme.
Textile: Symmetrical kilim patterns on wool will help to make your modern arrangement pop. Try not to include too many colors or a wide variety of colors. Limited colors and close colors are best. But if you like having a lot of colors, import the colors from something that you already have in your home, like a piece of art or furniture.
Trimmings: Trim is mostly traditional. But that does not mean you cannot have it take a modern outlook. Trim should be the same as the primary color.
For a Traditional Arrangement
Placement and Quantity: A traditional design is best achieved with an even number of Turkish kilim pillow covers, basically either two or four. They should be arranged on both sides of a couch or sofa to present an air of order, symmetry, regularity, and balance.
Size and Shape: There is no hard and fast rule about what size should be for traditional decor. It is dependent on the size of your sofa. Regardless of the size however, it would give a more aesthetic appearance if square size 20 or 24 inches are paired with smaller sizes that are square or circle in shape.
Textile: The traditional classic arrangement is best projected by wool and cotton kilim pillows. Keeping various colors, kilim textures and tapestry patterns layered helps to bring a lively air to the area. Busy or condensed patterns should be coupled with simple patterns. Floral paisley patterns can be mixed with uncomplicated patterns to help to the commingle of the patterns to achieve a more classic look.
Trimmings: Large trimmings like tassel fringe should be reserved for bigger pillow sizes to make them pop more. Smaller is better designed with slimmer trimmings like cord or braid.
For an Eclectic Arrangement
Placement and Quantity: An eclectic kilim pillow decoration should be cool and subtly whisper ‘crazy’. Even numbers of pillow covers are anathema to the spirit of the eclectic designing. Odd numbers of them produce a beautiful disproportionately without muddling the sofa up. They should have an air of careless placement and not abandonment. To achieve this, three kilim pillows at one end and two at the other seems good.
Size and Shape: Similar kilim pillows across a varied collection make a great team. Two or three large sizes of whatever shape and several smaller cushions, also of whatever shape come together to make an eclectic arrangement fall into place.
Material: It is best to be open to several materials, but not to just sleeve them randomly. There may be two or three matching cushions or several of them in several kilim fabrics, each different than the next. But at the very least, there should be some common ground between all of them, like the color or pattern of print to put some unity in the overall interior rug design.
Trimmings: Trimmings in an eclectic kilim pillow style should be kept to the barest minimum. More expression should be done in the selection of the rug fabrics than with the trimmings. Box cushion shapes, alongside their square shoulders, look good in an eclectic arrangement and can even look greater when the trimmings are braid or cord. Fringe tassel trimmings are too much and way over the top for an eclectic designing.
For whatever way you decide to arrange your decor, here are a few more things you need to know:
Size: Square kilim pillow covers with dimensions of about 18 inches sit very neatly on couches of normal pillow dimensions. Bigger size pillows (about 20 to 24 inches) give a more casual design. Modern couches with low backs are best with about 16 inch pillows.
Fill: Down inserts are squishier and are the most expensive. Foam and polyester are much stiffer. They maintain their shape, but they are not as plush or lush as down.
Number: In-home decor, an odd number of pillows is more creative and artistic. One, three or five kilim pillows give a good look.
Texture: There should be enough contrast between the textures of kilim pillow and the textures of the couches they are positioned on, else they will just as easily slide off the couch as they will stay on it. Linen is good with leather or silk; shiny patterns go well with fuzzy couches to offer enough traction.
Choosing perfect kilim pillow for home deor
Home is where the heart is. After a long day’s work or activities of the day, everyone wants a good and inviting place to go back to. Love can make a home good. And having someone special to go back home to can make the idea or thought of a home. But that extra touch that a home needs to make it inviting and something to show off to friends and family need to be done by a bold decor.
Choosing the perfect kilim pillow for home decor can be such a daunting task. There are simply too many kilim pillows to choose from. But the most important thing is that your home decor should be a reflection of who you are. It should also be something that you are very cool and comfortable with, otherwise, the whole point of the decor is moot.
Whether your intention is to decorate a single room or the entirety of your house, there are pillow styles and cushion themes to choose from. There’s an almost endless pick of colors, prices, decorations, and finishes. And although the permutations are nearly infinite, it is important to focus on a definite theme for your decor.
If you are new to decorating with kilim pillows, and you are not very sure about what to do and how to go about it, it is important that you start with the most basic thing, which is the cost. Unless you have millions of dollars to splurge on your home decor, you might want to keep your choices narrowed down to something that you can afford, without stress or strain to your purse or your budget. It would be very foolish indeed to have to mortgage your house to pay for the decor in it. Stay within your budget. And once that is settled, you can pick from any one of these styles, staying within your budget the whole time.
Casual: Casual home decor is just that. Casual. It is nothing elaborate or elegant. It is just your normal run-of-the-mill decor. The really good thing about casual decor is that it is not very costly and it brings an air of homeliness around a house. It projects warmth, relaxation, and comfort. Casual decor is something that you can do with textured kilim pillow on soft furniture, rectangular cushions, and a countryside or old school design. We have many casual kilim patterns.
Formal: Think elegance, sophistication, style, and grace, and you are probably thinking of formal. Arched doorways, high ceilings, tall windows, polished oak wood, exquisite furniture, wooden floors, expensive curtains, animal skin rugs, symmetry, and antique kilim pillows are the hallmarks of a formal decor.
Contemporary: Contemporary home decor style keeps modern movements alive. Even though trends tend to change, contemporary styles include simple, fundamental and refined sophistication. Neutral colors are often employed, geometric furniture, bohemian kilim pillows and smooth textures are also a part of contemporary home decor.
Traditional: Traditional styles incorporate the old into the new. Any decor that revamps the old into the new styles is a traditional home decor style. Old kilim fabrics, old pillows, and old details adapt very cleanly and nicely into the new.
Victorian Gothic: People imagine a Dracula style, decrepit and haunted house when they hear Victorian Gothic. But before formal decor became a thing, Victorian Gothic had predated it since the 17th Century. Victorian Gothic effortlessly combines class, elegance, and drama. Victorian Gothic is all about making a statement and making it boldly. Lavish decorations, cotton drapes, exquisite and expensive fabrics, ornate furniture, curved doorways, extensive decorative details, dark rug cushions are what make Victorian Gothic fascinating. Of all the home decoration styles, Victorian Gothic is the most expensive and can really cost an arm and a leg, plus a neck sometimes. And when it is not done properly by an expert, it does tend to end up looking like Dracula’s crypt.
When you have selected the decor that you think suits you, you may want to gather opinions and influences from a combination of decor styles and from decor styles around the world. Being in America does not mean you cannot have a French or Victorian design.
Paris Apartment: Paris is the home of fashion, mystery, and romance. With a little bit of the intricate ornamentation of the eighteenth century, rococo style; the flamboyant art of the baroque; and the simple, symmetrical form of the neoclassical, mixed with silk, art, and posters of France, the romance and fashion of the Paris Apartment Style can be really easily incorporated into your home decor by kilim pillowsç
French Country: An assortment of different patterns, equally proportioned furniture in a symmetrical way, tall chandeliers, an ivory kitchen, vivid colored cushions and a swathe of color brings you the French Country Style of decor in your own home.
Tuscan: Earthy, woody and stony is what defines the Tuscan style of home decor. A balanced combination of natural stone and earthy colors, terracotta, oak cupboards, wooden window panes, open cupboards, bronze cups, and copper pots, beige kilim pillows are what make the Tuscan style appealing.
Swedish: The Swedish home decor style is white, blue, clean and light. It looks casual and minimizes the use of surfaces. Red and gold kilim pillows, gentle curves and straight lines are key to achieving the Swedish home decor. Fabrics can be neatly woven to achieve an elegant, yet simple and casual look.
One more thing to consider when choosing the right kilim pillows for home decor that is perfect for you is the color. If the color is all wrong, your decor ends up looking drab, outrageous and garish. The perfect combination and blend of color give your home decor that extra touch of elegance and completeness that makes it worthwhile. The color blend that you select for your home decor is totally dependent on the type of decor that you are going for.
Formal design best goes with dark colors like brown and a dark blend of gold and coppery brown, and a dash of white for accent. Burgundy, wine, and maroon are also colors that go well with Victorian Gothic. Bright colors like pink, lilac, and red are good for casual home decor.
The best home decor is one that pleases you and incorporates who you are into the design and style of the home.
Kilim Rugs and Floor Coverings
Kilim Rugs are a very common addition to floors, and while they are positioned as floor coverings on hardwood, bamboo, tile, or laminate floor, they are seldom used as stand-alone floor covers. Rugs can be placed over the wall to wall carpets, and they make a visually pleasing addition to the overall effect of home decor. Rugs are common and so widespread in use and applications, but quite a number of people simply fail to understand and see the reason why their beautiful and expensive kilim rugs should be covered up with something as commonplace as a rug. The most apparent reason for covering up a perfect hardwood or something or other floor is simple enough - purely for the looks. Besides, rugs have a way of merging together all the components in a room. But far beyond the looks, and far above the styles, the benefits or the purpose that a rug serves are diverse and assorted. In fact, it would not be an exaggeration to say that rugs are versatile in purpose in function. And they serve the following functions in a living space:
Rugs will exponentially reduce the sound and noise in a living space. Carpets are not only softer and offer a more quiet tread than tiles or laminate floors, but they also go a very long way in absorbing sound waves from the atmosphere. Rugged rooms reduce echo effect in a room and do not have the poor sound-absorbing capabilities that tile or hardwood floors have.
It is no gainsaying that kilim rugs are not nearly as hard as hardwood or laminate floors. Standing on a rug or walking barefoot on it, is easier on the heels and soles of the feet than standing or walking on the hardwood floor. The carpet feels softer to the skin and offers much comfort. It is also very flexible, and the flexibility increases the absorption properties of the carpet to take more pressure off the body and the feet, and overall increase comfort when walking or standing on it.
A lot of people are instinctively aware of the fact that rugs are more balanced and offer more grounding for the feet than hardwood or laminate flooring; even if they do not understand the reason or the process that achieves the grounding.
When a living area is rugged and properly, the furniture in the living area is anchored firmly to the ground, preventing shifting or moving around of the furniture pieces or sets. This anchorage creates warm and inviting surroundings. This lends credence to the fact that a living area rug should be big and large enough that all the furniture pieces are resting comfortably on it. At the very least, the front legs of the furniture pieces should be on the rug, to give the impression that the furniture pieces are not simply floating around without anchorage in the room.
This may seem to counterproductive, but regardless of whatever you may have heard, rugs actually help to keep allergens at bay. Allergic people were at a time advised getting rid of any and all rugs in their homes to help them cope better with their allergies. Based on the assumption at the time, that rugs trap allergens. Recent surveys and studies have debunked this myth. Carpet is actually favorable because it does trap allergens and keeps them out of the atmosphere and your breathing space. If you are prone to allergies, you may want to invest in some rugs that will help relieve your allergies.
Having considered some of the reasons that rugs are desirable elements in home interior decoration, you may have decided to get one or cherish the one you already have. There are a few things you need to avoid when placing or positioning your rug.
Rugs in Isolation
A most common deliberation on the placement of rugs is whether the legs of the furniture should be on the rug or off it. There are really no cast-iron rules about this, but when you have a large rug that covers your living area, and the legs of your furniture are positioned on it, it does make a pleasant sight. You are better off not having any rugs than having a small one. Small rugs make it seem as if you scrimped on costs and just got something for the heck of it. Better then, not to isolate your rug in your living area.
Even though rugs improve the general outlook of any living area where they are positioned, there are some things that you really do not need to cover. Covering a vinyl pathway or a linoleum floor with the rug is decoratively acceptable. Covering a beautiful hardwood floor, however, is a decorative gaffe, and totally unacceptable. You should get hauled off to the decorative courthouse for it. When there is beauty in your living area, expose it proudly. Don’t just cover it up.
Liners or Pads
A most common gaffe that people make while installing rugs is not to use the correct rug pad for that particular floor type, or not using a rug pad at all. Rug pads are there to serve different purposes, and they are not just there to sit unused and look pretty. They are to be used for the flooring, the carpet and or the soles of your feet. Rug liners make the rug more plush, cushiony and soft. They protect your floor from the transfer of rug dyes. They anchor your rug to the floor and give it an air of balance. And more importantly, they make your rug more long-lasting and confer a higher degree of durability on it. So if you have been ignoring the rug liner, you may want to go back and dig it up. You’ve been missing out on a lot.
In addition to these tips about rugs, you may want to use rugs of different sizes to further beautify your living area. Use rugs of different colors instead of a single color, and always remember to vacuum your kilim rugs and kilim pillows when you need to.
