Would you like a different fabric on your sofa or chair for winter than you want for spring? You could have red and green for Christmas or pastels for spring. In winter you might want a darker heavier fabric while in summer you might like something light and airy. Not many of us could change our furniture with the seasons but with affordable furniture slipcovers you could have the option of a different look for different seasons or holidays. Just swap them when ever you are ready for a change. Low cost slipcovers give you many opportunities for variety in your home. As you can see whatever your style, whatever your need, there is a furniture slipcover available for you. So start dreaming of the look you want for your home and let furniture slipcovers make it a reality.
When updating the look of your furniture, using fitted slipcovers is the best option. There is a wide variety of fabrics to choose from, much more so than in traditional furniture stores. A slipcover is an easier, more cost-effective alternative to reupholstering your chairs and couches or buying new pieces. The slipcover has long been an option for covering couches, but this old standby is now finding its way into more homes than ever before. The reason is simple: as the recession tightens budgets across the country, more families are discovering that a room can be updated more quickly and easily with a slipcover at a fraction of the price. Fitted slipcovers are cheaper than reupholstering your existing pieces or buying a new sofa, and they can easily be customized to your home décor.
Prepare a muslin pattern - Once you’ve completely pinned and fitted the muslin on the chair, stand back and take a look. How do the proportions look? How about the location of the band’s overlapping closures? If your eye is satisfied, unpin the muslin from the chair, separate the components, and lay them flat. Use a French curve and a straightedge to fine-tune the seamlines, darts, and other markings. Add seam allowances to the seat, band, and skirt. Add the fabric needed for the inverted pleats (they should be at least 2 in. deep), along with hem allowances to the skirt pattern.
Almost every house has one….the favorite chair. Sometimes it’s a recliner placed strategically in front of the entertainment center. While in other homes it a nice, deep armchair just made for reading books placed under a sunny window. But it doesn’t matter what your favorite chair’s style is if it is covered with pet hair, or badly stained from food accidents, or has prematurely darkened armrests caused by sweat or body oils. No matter what cleaners you use or how often you clean it, your favorite chair has long lost its good looks. You may have heard that you can use a chair slipcover to hide away its tattered and worn upholstery while protecting it from further damage. But just what things should you look for when selecting slipcovers for chairs?
