This is often much cheaper and easier than shopping around for a piece of furniture that has the perfect or exact pattern on it that you're searching for and it's certainly a better option than changing the entire décor of your home to match your seating furniture. For those who like to change their décor to match the seasons, slipcovers are an excellent option of using existing furniture to match the seasons with the addition of a simple slipcover. With the wide variety of colors available, there is a slipcover to match any seasonal color your 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.
When selecting an Armless Slipcover Sofa, all you have to do is choose the kind and color of fabric you wish to use and the maker will order the fabric. You will be charged for the cost of the fabric as well as the making of the covers, which mainly includes the labor cost. When you are about to order the slipcover for your sofa, you have to first take the measurements. If you are doing it yourself, you should remove the cushions before taking the measurements. You can also call a professional from the interior design firm or store for doing the measurements.
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.
