Stretch slipcovers are also available for other rooms. For example, dining chair slipcovers can be purchased to protect good quality upholstery from food or drink spills. They come in various colors and patterns. Many people like to have a set of luxury covers to add a touch of elegance to dinner parties or special occasions. Folding and kitchen coverings are widely available too. If you're tired of the appearance of your home, fitting some new slipcovers is an easy way to give an entire room a makeover without the inconvenience of decorating. A new slipcover can enhance the look and feel of a whole room, with minimal fuss, and can be changed whenever you fancy a new image!
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.
The right slipcover maintains uniformity in all the furniture. The right slipcovers can be stitched at home or they can be brought from outside that are available readymade. Heavier furniture requires different slipcovers. The slipcover should be able to cover the entire furniture. The slipcovers chosen should look best on the overstuffed furniture. The chosen slipcover should decorate the furniture as well as room. They should not fix structural problems. They should be stain and dust resistant.
Construction is easy - The process of sewing a slipcover uses the familiar techniques of garment sewing. Sewing darts, facings, pleats, and piping are basic skills that are certainly easier to do on a simple slipcover than, say, a jacket. Sewing hems, topstitching seams, and creating closures are terrific practice for more complex projects. Clip and notch curves in their seam allowances, as you would in garment sewing. Pressing rules apply to slipcover construction, too. Press open seam allowances as you finish them, and press pleats carefully to create crisp edges.
