The Benefits of Slipcovers

How To / August 26,2013

People become very attached to their armchairs, sofas and couches, the way that children become attached to their favourite stuffed toy. It's something to do with the soft upholstery, which provides a comforting reassurance when things get too hectic. Unfortunately as adults, an old upholstered furniture item can become an embarrassing eyesore when it's amongst a bunch of new living room decorations. But don't worry, there are ways to keep your favourite comfy chair around without compromising the new living room theme. Use a slipcover, a fabric creation that fits over a couch or armchair like a pillowcase over a cushion.

Lots of manufacturers produce ready-made slipcovers for a variety of furniture styles. Pick the right one for your favourite chair so it fits nice and snug. Now that everything in the living room is looking good, keep that appearance going by taking care of the slipcover. It is easy to slide it right off the couch and into the washing machine for regular cleaning. For a white slipcover, use non-chlorine bleach in the washing machine.
