How chair covers can uplift your old furniture

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Don’t want to get rid of your sturdy chairs and comfortable sofas but it’s time to give them a new look? The quickest way to do this is to shop for slipcovers. It is a less expensive option than replacing old furniture, and you also get to redecorate within a reasonable budget. While selecting a chair, recliner or sofa slipcovers, you have plenty of choices because they come in different sizes, colors, fabrics, and fit.

Some consider slipcovers outdated and sloppy but you should know that the right slipcover can give a facelift to that super comfortable furniture that you are so used to. Slipcovers never go out of style because you can do so much and cover up so much with them. Those faded colors, worn-out fabric, out of shape furniture can look as good as new with the right slipcover. Moreover, you have the option of buying pre-made slipcovers or can get them custom tailored to your choice of fabric and design.

If you are wondering how to select the best sofa, chair or recliner slipcover, here are some suggestions. If your sofa’s slipcover is too loose and flowing, it may look shabby, so choosing the right fit for your furniture is important. To do this right, measure your furniture before you set out to buy anything. If you are planning for a ruffle bottom slipcover, don’t forget to measure the width between the bottom of the furniture and the ground. In case your sofa or chair has arms, be particular while measuring the length because custom slipcovers would not be refundable. Stretch slipcovers are a wonderful option because they give a lot of leeways regarding the fit. Fitted slipcovers undoubtedly provide a more flawless and smart look but then they must be tailored with impeccable measurements.

The color of the fabric that you choose should ideally complement the rest of your décor style. The most preferred furniture slipcover shades are typically neutral because such shades make the covers easy to blend well with the decor of the rest of the house. Darker shades can add a lot of drama, and vibrant hues can add a cheerful and zesty appeal to your furniture. Finally, it’s for you to choose if you want your sofa’s slipcover to be muted or look bright with exciting colors.
