Slipcovers Buying Guide

If you've tired of the same old, same old when it comes to how your furniture looks, but you don't have the budget or time to invest in new furniture, there's another option you may want to consider: Slipcovers are a fast, simple way to change the look of not just a single furniture piece, but a whole room.

Types of Slipcovers

Types of Slipcovers

From a spot that just won't come out to a worn-down patch of fabric, from an old pattern to an outdated color, furniture can show its age and its use. But as anyone who has priced a chair or a couch understands, replacing furniture can take a big bite out of a home improvement budget. Fortunately, slipcovers are a modern family's best furniture friend. Available in a range of sizes, styles, colors, and patterns, these pieces can offer a new look at a fraction of the price of a whole piece of furniture. Here's a guide to help you find the right fit for your family.

Chair Slipcovers

Chair slipcovers can cover all types of chairs, from dining room seating to living room loungers. For structured chairs, some slipcovers may even cover just the base or seating portion.

Couch and Sofa Slipcovers

Couch and sofa slipcovers can cover these furnishings in a variety of ways. Some are very casual and unstructured—a great way to change the look and feel of furniture without making a huge investment.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

From casual contemporary to tried-and-true traditional, slipcovers are as varied as the furniture they cover. What you choose probably depends in large part on the stage of life that you and your family—as well as your furniture—are in. Even so, there are common purchase considerations that everyone, no matter the budget or the style, should consider. Those include material, washability, fastening, and fitting. Use this guide to help you on your way to finding the best slipcover.

Material

Most slipcovers are made of a cotton or cotton-blend fabric that has some sort of stain guarding to enhance durability. Look carefully at the care requirements of your top choices to ensure that they match the lifestyle needs of your daily routine.

Washability

One of the best reasons to choose a slipcover is care: Most can be easily removed to be washed, and most slipcover materials can be cleaned with regular detergents and washing machines.

Fastening

Slipcovers fasten in a variety of ways. Some have ties to secure to armrests; others may have hook-and-loop closures or zippers. Those with ties tend to offer a looser fit and work with a wider range of furniture sizes and styles.

Fitting

Many slipcovers are designed to be a temporary solution, securing in an unstructured fashion over arms, legs, and bodies of furniture pieces. Others, however, may be intended as a permanent replacement for upholstery.
