Has your sofa begun to fade from the sunlight? Are there stains or tears that you need to hide? A furniture slipcover can be a low cost alternative to replacing or reupholstering your old furniture. With tight budgets, it's not always possible to buy new furniture or even reupholster it. With a furniture slipcover all the flaws, damage, and dirt are hidden and you have a fresh new look for a fraction of the cost. Besides, who wants to throw out that comfortable old recliner just because it no longer looks its best.

Before you can buy the proper slipcover, you must decide on what type of slipcover you want based on the style of the room or you may pick out the wrong type that doesn't fit the room at all. Slipcovers can be used for a variety of different reasons. They can be used to hide stains or rips on cushions that are otherwise in great condition. They can also be used to change the look of the family room when redecorating or just give the room a different look with the change of the seasons. Be sure to choose your slipcovers carefully as they will become one of the main focuses in the family room once you slip them over the furniture.
