Better Choices, Better Décor. Many designers also enjoy using a slipcover because it allows them to express the full range of their designing creativity. When purchasing a sofa from a store, it is often difficult to find the ideal color or pattern combined with the desired framework and structure. Designers are often forced to choose between a perfect couch with the wrong color, or an excellent color and the wrong design style.
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!
Cut out the pattern pieces, folding the seat section in half along the centerline to ensure symmetry. You’ll also need facings to finish the cutout edges of the overlapping-closure areas of the chair’s arms and back. If you want to make a pattern for these, cut a rectangle at least 1-12 in. larger than the openings. Or simply measure and cut the slipcover fabric directly, without a pattern, when you’re ready to face. Place your muslin pattern pieces on the right side of your slipcover fabric, and cut them out. If there are any motifs in the fabric that need to be centered or positioned strategically, trace the muslin pieces on paper first to make a see-through pattern.
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.
