Buying Guide on Slipcovers

Slipcovers are generally defined as 'clothing for furniture'. It is a fitted cover that can easily be used on and off on the upholstered furniture. Since it is removable, it is easy to wash, clean, store and change from time to time.

Changing slipcovers of the furniture is an easy thing to do to give a new look to the furniture without investing too much. This quick change can instantly transform a space, update worn-out seats and guard furniture from dirt, pets and stains.

Sofa Set With Slipcover Choose the best slipcovers by considering the below stated points:

• The size of the sofa: Slipcovers are meant to cover the furniture so proper measurement should be taken of the furniture. It is advisable to measure the distance from the floor to the bottom of the sofa, as slipcovers come with a ruffled or pleated skirt at the bottom. Fitted measurement gives a laid back feel to the furniture while on the other hand, a non-fitted loose slip cover will give a casual effect to the furniture.

• The material of the slipcover: Slip covers can be crafted out of many fabrics. Choose from canvas, cotton or twill blend for furniture that are placed in heavy traffic areas, since they often fit loose and give an inviting and comfortable fit to the furniture. Slipcovers crafted with wool, linen and silk look graceful and lend a classy touch to the decor, but require regular dry-cleaning. The color of the slipcover should also be carefully chosen since the furniture is focal point of the room.

Red Slipcover For Sofa • Choose a style: It's easy to find a slipcover that works with any decor style, be it a clean contemporary look, rustic traditional or trendy chic. Slipcovers make the furniture stylish and make them appear new and fresh. They can be designed in a number of fits. Traditional frilled slipcovers look best on wooden sofas and chairs with rounded arms. While loosely fitted covers work best for chic furniture giving a casual look to the decor.
Slipcovers can be an excellent idea to revamp the look of the furniture by draping it with different fabrics in different colors.
