Fitted slipcovers make such dilemmas largely irrelevant. With a cover, it becomes possible to change the color at a whim without the major expense of re-upholstery. Covers also give an added benefit of protection to new and old couches alike. Particularly if a durable fabric is chosen, the wear and tear upon the couch itself is stopped by the protective cover. Instead of having to replace or re-upholster, maintenance is as simple as changing out the fabric.
You may like to keep several sets of slipcovers to change according to the seasons. Or you could have one set for everyday use and another for special occasions. As well as couch, recliner and wing chair slipcovers for use in the family room or den, there are all sorts of dining room chair slipcovers, which enable you to dress up your everyday dining chairs to impress if entertaining guests, or protect quality upholstery from wear and tear. If you're looking for a way to give your home a makeover without blowing your budget, then some inexpensive slipcovers could be the solution.
Take out your sketchbook and try a few design ideas, like those in my drawings above. Or start with the classic seat-top, band, and skirt style as I’ve done for the chair at top left. Sketch different proportions of band width to skirt height, think about pleats or gathers to turn the corners at the legs, and dream up details using piping or other trim. You can even take photos of your chair, then trace your ideas over them. Suit the slipcover to the chair’s style, using the patternmaking process described in the photo-essay. The patternmaking process is the same, regardless of the style you choose.
Choosing the right slipcover: The slipcover should suit the shape and size of the furniture. It should not be over fitted or loosen to the furniture. They should be semi fitted. A good and right slipcover is stitched well. They should have a loosely constructed structure and shape. They should be made of a good quality of cloth that is comfortable to the human skin. They should not create a burning or itching feeling to the user. They should be inexpensive and durable. They should allow an individual to wash and clean easily.
