Chair and sofa slipcovers are great for giving worn-looking furniture a fresh new look. If your room could do with a makeover, fitting some ready made slipcovers over your sofas and chairs is a quick and easy way to transform the look and feel of a room without much hassle or expense. Here are 8 good reasons to use slipcovers: Furniture covers come in a range of sizes and shapes, to fit all kinds of seats, including recliner and wing chairs, sectional sofas, loveseats and ottomans.
Take out your sketchbook and try a few design ideas, like those in my drawings above. Or start with the classic seat-top, band, and skirt style as I’ve done for the chair at top left. Sketch different proportions of band width to skirt height, think about pleats or gathers to turn the corners at the legs, and dream up details using piping or other trim. You can even take photos of your chair, then trace your ideas over them. Suit the slipcover to the chair’s style, using the patternmaking process described in the photo-essay. The patternmaking process is the same, regardless of the style you choose.
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.
Advantages of slipcover fabrics: Slipcover fabrics have various types. The slipcover fabrics can instantly improve or change the appearance of outdated or tired looking furniture. The fabric gives a new lease of life. Buying a slipcover fabric is cheaper than buying new furniture. Therefore it is cost saving. Many of the fabrics are both hand and machine washable. The sponge set of slipcovers allows a person to have cozy feeling. Many of the slipcovers are made of easy care fabrics.
