Before you can buy the proper slipcover, you must decide on what type of slipcover you want based on the style of the room or you may pick out the wrong type that doesn't fit the room at all. Slipcovers can be used for a variety of different reasons. They can be used to hide stains or rips on cushions that are otherwise in great condition. They can also be used to change the look of the family room when redecorating or just give the room a different look with the change of the seasons. Be sure to choose your slipcovers carefully as they will become one of the main focuses in the family room once you slip them over the furniture.

A more traditional chair slipcover is hand sewn by a slipcover professional or upholstery shop. Hand crafted slipcovers were originally made by tapestry weavers and were used to protect the furnishings of the very rich. But during the 18th and 19th century chair slipcovers became a fashion accessory all on their own. As slipcovers for chairs became the vogue, slipcover makers, often immigrants from Europe would go to the homes of their wealthy clients and measure and cut out fabrics on site. Then the men would return to their homes or shops and have their womenfolk do the actual sewing.
