These days furniture slipcovers can be found for seats of all shapes and sizes, from wing backed chairs to sectional sofas, from loveseats to ottomans. Fitting a new slipcover to a favorite piece of furniture offers a simple yet effective way to instantly improve its appearance and give it a fresh lease of life. Ready made slipcovers for sofas and chairs are the cheapest option, but even having fitted slipcovers custom made can be relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the costs of re-upholstery or buying a whole new suite. A real benefit of a slipcover is that it can be easily replaced whenever you fancy a change, or if it needs to be washed.
What to look for in a Chair Slipcover. A chair slipcover is a specially designed piece of fabric that is used to cover and protect the original upholstery of a chair. Chair slipcovers can come in many different colors and styles. But the two most basic designs you need to be aware of and understand are the terms: ready-made and tailor-made. A ready-made chair slipcover is a semi-fitted mass-produced covering that can work with a wide variety of chair styles and sizes. Ready-made coverings became very popular in the 1960’s when the cost of making these one-piece coverings became less than the cost of getting them hand tailored. The type of chair slipcover is easily found online or in specialty retail stores.
A ready-made slipcover for a sofa will have not give your old furnishings a new lease on life but can save you hundreds of dollars in cleaning bills and replacement costs. A properly selected sofa slipcover can help quickly give your home a fresh and clean, new image without spending a ton of money on a new sofa. Sofa slipcovers come in a wide choice of fabrics (both natural and man-made), an array of color schemes to match most styling preferences and a host of different patterns that fit in most any décor.
After you’ve made one side-chair seat cover, you might start eyeing other furniture in your home, and I encourage you to apply the basic principles you’ve just learned to more complex pieces of furniture. Or just stick to chair-seat covers. You can start collecting interesting chairs at flea markets and antique shops to apply your newfound craft. Let your imagination contribute to the beauty of the chair, and see how it can instantly uplift your surroundings. Then cozy up in your new chair.
