What is a couch cover? A couch cover is a piece of material that can be used to cover your couch either for sleeping or making a protective layer between your couch and your sheets, or to cover your couch during the day. Why would you need a couch cover for during the day? Well, there is more than one reason for why someone might need a couch cover for their home.
The most common reason for a couch cover is in case you have a pet, especially a hairy one, that can climb over you furniture and make his own cover….of hair, or if your loved family pet uses your furniture as its first choice for a refuge after coming in the house on a rainy day and covers your couch in …dirt.
Second, if your couch is several years old and it looks a little worn out or stained, a cover could change and refresh its appearance, especially if you’re on a limited budget. Also, you could use a couch cover if you’ve just changed your other pieces of furniture and you don’t want to buy a new couch because the colors don’t match anymore. These are some good reasons to buy a couch cover, but you could also use one simply to have something to change things up when you are bored of the previous texture and design.
Whatever the reason, when you decide to buy a couch cover you should be careful that it matches your interior, and is both long and wide enough to cover your entire couch. Also don’t forget a very important detail: your couch’s cover material. If you can get used to the color, you’ll hardly even notice it after a while, no matter how much you’ve hated it or loved it in the first place, with the material it’s a different story all together. It should not be easily stainable or you’ll cringe at every dripping chocolate ice cream, greasy finger or cherry juice drop over your new couch cover. Also you should choose a material that is pleasant to the touch, not too cold in the winter, or too hot in the summer. You shouldn’t feel the need to jump from the couch because your new cover feels weird just because you loved the way it looked on display in the store. Also, keep in mind the allergies and asthma attacks if you know you have a case in the family and don’t choose a very fluffy one that could cause these health problems.
