Slipcovers are one of the all-time secret weapons of decorating. More than functional, they’re an interior-design opportunity. Garment sewers are many steps ahead of the rest of the world who must rely on expensive interior designers and upholsterers to create these versatile room brighteners. Sewers already know about making a fitting muslin and cutting and constructing a garment-skills so easily applied to slipcovering furniture that you’ll be amazed at the simplicity of it. And if you love to sew, you know the lure of beautiful fabric. Here’s your chance to expand your textile palette with the rich variety of high-quality decorator fabric available from home-furnishing stores and through interior designers.
Re-Upholstery Versus A Slipcover - In the past, the go-to option for a tired old sofa was a complete renewal with upholstery. The process was time and money intensive, and often required the customer to struggle through demands placed by the owner of the upholstery shop. Many such shops limited the selection available to customers, particularly if they were attached to a fabric shop. If so, it was common to require that the upholstery fabric be purchased from the related shop, or else the upholstery provider wouldn't use it.
With proper material, any cover can give an outdated sofa a new look. Recession-savvy decorators are repurposing and reusing more than ever before, inventing creative new ways to use things like fitted slipcovers in decorating schemes. And best of all, they are able to do so at less expense, better results, and added protection for years to come. Using a cover actually increases the overall life of furniture, making it a smart investment decision.
Slipcovers offer an affordable way to coordinate mismatched furniture, or blend in your sofas and chairs with a new color scheme if you've decorated or moved house. Semi fitted slipcovers are really simple to put on, fitting snuggly over your existing upholstery for a smooth, wrinkle-free finish. They're held in place with elastic, zippers or ties and can give furniture a smart new image. Slipcovers can be changed within minutes, giving you the freedom to alter your room's appearance in an instant.
