Has your sofa begun to fade from the sunlight? Are there stains or tears that you need to hide? A furniture slipcover can be a low cost alternative to replacing or reupholstering your old furniture. With tight budgets, it's not always possible to buy new furniture or even reupholster it. With a furniture slipcover all the flaws, damage, and dirt are hidden and you have a fresh new look for a fraction of the cost. Besides, who wants to throw out that comfortable old recliner just because it no longer looks its best.
If you want to change up the theme or style of your living room, you don't have to buy all new couches and chairs to match the look of the room. Instead, slipcovers make a great way to change the style and colors of a piece of furniture quickly and easily so that it can fit in with the décor of the new family room. If you are going to be looking for new slipcovers for your family room furniture, here are some helpful hints to help you.
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.
The right slipcover maintains uniformity in all the furniture. The right slipcovers can be stitched at home or they can be brought from outside that are available readymade. Heavier furniture requires different slipcovers. The slipcover should be able to cover the entire furniture. The slipcovers chosen should look best on the overstuffed furniture. The chosen slipcover should decorate the furniture as well as room. They should not fix structural problems. They should be stain and dust resistant.
