A lot of people get confused about the actual usage of a pillow sham. Simply put, a pillow sham is a decorative cover for pillows for when you are not using your pillows. The primary use of a pillow sham is decoration. There is also a common misconception about the pillow shams and pillowcases being used for the same purpose. Let’s understand a little more.
Difference between pillowcases and pillow shams
While you may feel that a pillowcase and a pillow sham both serve the same purpose, there are very obvious differences between the two. Firstly, as already stated, pillow shams are primarily used for decorative purposes, while pillowcases are used for sleeping and keeping the pillow safe from regularly accumulated dirt. Usually pillow shams are supposed to be taken off when you are about to go to bed. Another major difference is that a pillow cover has a side opening from where you can slide in the pillow, while a pillow sham has a back opening, which cover the entire pillow from all sides, making it look more proper for decorative purposes.
