After you’ve made one side-chair seat cover, you might start eyeing other furniture in your home, and I encourage you to apply the basic principles you’ve just learned to more complex pieces of furniture. Or just stick to chair-seat covers. You can start collecting interesting chairs at flea markets and antique shops to apply your newfound craft. Let your imagination contribute to the beauty of the chair, and see how it can instantly uplift your surroundings. Then cozy up in your new chair.
Choose Cotton or Polyester Blend Slipcovers for High Traffic Areas. If your couches and chairs tend to get a lot of traffic in the family room, your best bet is to pick a slipcover that is cotton or a polyester blend. This is because this type of material will hold up the best when it comes to wear and tear. Although it may wrinkle, it is very simple to run an iron over the slipcovers and the wrinkles come right out. You can find inexpensive cotton and polyester slipcovers as well as higher end cotton slipcovers.
Decide on the Look of the Slipcover According to the Style of the Room. Some people like slipcovers to form fit against a couch so that you can see every outline of the couch. Other people may prefer the looser fitting slipcover that simply drapes over the furniture and hangs loosely off the couch. One thing to keep in mind is that with the tight fitting slipcover, you may find that you are constantly re-arranging it due to people sitting on it and moving about on it. You may also find that this type of slipcover may rip more easily from being pulled too tight or in a wrong direction.
Stretch slipcovers come in a choice of durable fabrics that are also soft and comfortable to sit on. Popular materials include twill, denim and faux suede. Most sofa and chair slipcovers are fully machine-washable, so they are easy to care for. With a slipcover protecting your upholstery, there's no need to worry about accidental food or drink spills, or dirty marks made by pets or children. There's an enormous selection of colors and patterns to choose from, so you should be able to find a slipcover design that looks fantastic with your décor.
