A ready-made slipcover for a sofa will have not give your old furnishings a new lease on life but can save you hundreds of dollars in cleaning bills and replacement costs. A properly selected sofa slipcover can help quickly give your home a fresh and clean, new image without spending a ton of money on a new sofa. Sofa slipcovers come in a wide choice of fabrics (both natural and man-made), an array of color schemes to match most styling preferences and a host of different patterns that fit in most any décor.
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.
Chair slipcover makers were often nicknamed "summer time millionaires" due to the amount of money that could be made in the slipcover industry. These artisans are all almost gone. The few remaining shops and designers that do custom slipcovers often are even more expensive than their predecessors. Another factor to consider besides color is the actual fabric that a chair slipcover can be made from. You can choose either natural fiber fabrics like linen, cotton or ramie. Or work with a synthetic fabric made from acrylic, nylon or polyester. The best fabric is a blend of natural and man-made materials for durabilityFree Web Content, ease of cleaning and shape and fit. As you can see selecting the right slipcover for a chair is not as difficult as you may think. By deciding earlier on what style you can afford to buy: ready-made or tailor-made plus looking closely at your lifestyle; you can choose a chair slip cover that will last for years.
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.
