Couch Slipcovers and Chair Slipcovers
Couch slip covers are a great way to restore and give new life to old furniture. They are a great alternative to buying new furniture, especially since older furniture tend to be sturdier built than many of the cheaply made furniture of today.
Furniture restoration has become a big industry today, and these days it is very easy for even the novice to become an interior design wizard through the use of reupholstered furniture. There are many great online furniture shops that offer a variety of slipcovers that can help you restore the life of your living room furniture.
Slipcovers come in a variety of shapes and designs. Everything from custom made slipcovers, stretch loveseat slipcovers, futon slipcovers, plastic sofa covers, etc. can all be found online and also at affordable prices. Sofas and Futons tend to be the most often reupholstered types of furniture, however there are reupholstered options for a variety of furniture types including ottomans, armchairs, and recliners.
The most important thing when trying to find the perfect couch slip covers is finding the right furniture measurements. The last thing you want to do is to purchase couch covers that do not fit your specific piece of furniture at all. The best way to ensure that you get a proper fit is to use a tape measure to accurately measure the dimensions of the sofa, especially since chances are there will be no other means for you to compare your slipcover to your actual piece of furniture.
There are a variety of materials as well to choose from when thinking about reupholstered furniture. You want to make sure that the fabric you choose meshes well with the materials that your furniture is already made of. There is nothing worse than choosing the wrong material for a slip cover to find that it has a funny feel to it after you put it on. So get to know your furniture fabric to be sure that you get something that compliments what you already have.
Also when working with sofa covers, it is important that you consider costs of reupholstering into your overall equation. Yes reupholstering can save you money, but at the same time if you don’t know what you are doing it can almost be just as costly as buying new furniture. So you need to definitely research and consider pricing of the reupholstering itself and the materials as opposed to the cost of new furniture. If the actual frame and structure of the piece of furniture in mind is already weak, it might be better for you to scrap it in the long run anyway. I mean why reupholster something that is not even structurally secure?
So bottom line is using some sort of couch slip cover to restore your old furniture can be a great way to save a lot of money and to give your living room a touch up. Years of damage can cause furniture fabric to fade and look dinky, so maybe a slipcover is something that you may need. Regardless of what you choose, be sure to take the time to do your research and learn about furniture restoration and what it takes to properly reupholster your furniture.
