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.
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.
Of course, there may be circumstances where re-upholstering or buying new furniture is warranted. However, in the majority of cases, using a slipcover is a cost-effective and very easy way to get the same look without the hassle. The only difficulty with fitted slipcovers is improper measurement. Be certain that all measurements are completely accurate before sending anything in to the company.
Note that the band that wraps around the chair below the seat often eliminates the need for a lot of darts or tucks and acts as a smooth vertical transition from the seat to the skirt. The number of overlapping closures needed in the band and skirt depends on the chair’s anatomy. Each above-the-seat element, such as a back and arms, needs a separate opening. Allow enough overlap in the closure to ensure a smooth fit with no gaps in the skirt (see the sewing instructions below). The skirt will need pleats at the legs if they splay out from the chair, but instead of making these pleats in the muslin, just mark where they’ll meet at the center of the legs.
