If you want to change up the theme or style of your living room, you don't have to buy all new couches and chairs to match the look of the room. Instead, slipcovers make a great way to change the style and colors of a piece of furniture quickly and easily so that it can fit in with the décor of the new family room. If you are going to be looking for new slipcovers for your family room furniture, here are some helpful hints to help you.
A more traditional chair slipcover is hand sewn by a slipcover professional or upholstery shop. Hand crafted slipcovers were originally made by tapestry weavers and were used to protect the furnishings of the very rich. But during the 18th and 19th century chair slipcovers became a fashion accessory all on their own. As slipcovers for chairs became the vogue, slipcover makers, often immigrants from Europe would go to the homes of their wealthy clients and measure and cut out fabrics on site. Then the men would return to their homes or shops and have their womenfolk do the actual sewing.
A ready-made slipcover for a sofa will have not give your old furnishings a new lease on life but can save you hundreds of dollars in cleaning bills and replacement costs. A properly selected sofa slipcover can help quickly give your home a fresh and clean, new image without spending a ton of money on a new sofa. Sofa slipcovers come in a wide choice of fabrics (both natural and man-made), an array of color schemes to match most styling preferences and a host of different patterns that fit in most any décor.
A good looking and well fitting sofa slipcover can easily and cheaply update the look of a room. A sofa slipcover can cover up worn or tattered upholstery or help make a mismatched sofa and chair look like that they came off the same factory assembly line. A well designed sofa slipcover in the right color and fabric can demand attention and interaction from everyone who enters the room. A sofa slipcover can help unlock the true decorating potential of your home, since your "style" will no longer be dictated to you by your furniture!
