What to look for in a Chair Slipcover. A chair slipcover is a specially designed piece of fabric that is used to cover and protect the original upholstery of a chair. Chair slipcovers can come in many different colors and styles. But the two most basic designs you need to be aware of and understand are the terms: ready-made and tailor-made. A ready-made chair slipcover is a semi-fitted mass-produced covering that can work with a wide variety of chair styles and sizes. Ready-made coverings became very popular in the 1960’s when the cost of making these one-piece coverings became less than the cost of getting them hand tailored. The type of chair slipcover is easily found online or in specialty retail stores.
Of course, choosing the fabric for your chair is also part of the fun. Fabric that you love but might not want to wear now becomes fair game for your furniture. Although dressmaking fabrics can work fine for a slipcover, upholstery fabric is made for the job and will stand up to lots of use and abuse. For your first project, choose a fabric that’s not too heavy, dense, or loosely woven, so that it will be easy to work with. If you want a washable slipcover, be sure to preshrink the fabric by running it through the washing machine.
Many people like the vintage look of an old sofa or chair but the upholstery is out of style. Maybe you have that old sofa from grandma and the old chair from Aunt Anne but they don't match. There is a solution to this and other problems you might have with mismatched or outdated furniture. Choose new furniture slipcovers. Slipcovers can give you a contemporary look while letting your keep those heirlooms. You can choose between matching fabrics for your furniture slipcover or complementary fabrics to mix or match your design scheme.
Furniture in many rooms can be slipcovered. In the family room, sofa slipcovers, as well as looking pretty, have the practical function of protecting your existing fabric from everyday wear and tear. Why not buy a few sets of discount slipcovers if you've got pets of small children? That can be an affordable way to always ensure you have spare furniture covers in case of accidents! Most modern slipcover materials are designed to be easy to care for and are fully machine washable. It can be worth spending a bit more on hardwearing fabrics such as cotton, particularly for seats that get used regularly. Why not look for matching recliner chair covers for a stylish, coordinated look?
