If you have small children or pets, you know the wear and tear your furniture is subjected to. Kids spill, get sick, or rub their dirty shoes or hands on your sofa. The pets track in dirt and grime from outside not to mention all the pet hair. It's a wonder your sofas and chairs survive. When you use a furniture slipcover, you are protecting your furniture from all that mess. When your slipcover gets dirty, just remove it toss it in the washer and dryer. Now you have a fresh clean slipcover. It's kind of hard to toss the sofa or chair in the wash. Using furniture slipcovers will extend the life of your furniture for many years.
With proper material, any cover can give an outdated sofa a new look.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.
Look at the Seat - Now you need to look at the seating cushions. Most chairs or couches have some standard shaped seats: squares, rectangles or blocks with curves at the back or "T-shape" tips at the front. Sure Fit slipcovers come in a variety of styles from a one piece, a two-piece with a separate seat cover or a three-piece with separate covers for the couch base, seat cushion and back. Of course there are other ready-made cover vendors other than the Sure Fit slipcover company but you get what you pay for. So if you want slipcovers that are semi-custom fitted, washable and come in a wide selection of patterns, colors and styles than you really can’t do better than Sure Fit slipcovers.
Of course, choosing the fabric for your chair is also part of the fun. Fabric that you love but might not want to wear now becomes fair game for your furniture. Although dressmaking fabrics can work fine for a slipcover, upholstery fabric is made for the job and will stand up to lots of use and abuse. For your first project, choose a fabric that’s not too heavy, dense, or loosely woven, so that it will be easy to work with. If you want a washable slipcover, be sure to preshrink the fabric by running it through the washing machine.
