Buying a new slipcover for your sofa is not something you do every day, so you are probably wondering where to start. Yes, you want to conceal the original upholstery, but how do you know what’s going to look best?
To help make your life easier, the team here at GetSlipcovers.com has put together a list of things to consider before you buy. We’ve also got some pictures of our personal favourites, and we’ve written our own reviews on a couple of slipcovers so you know what to expect.
1 How big is your sofa?
Perhaps the most crucial step is to check the measurements of your sofa to make sure you know what size cover you need to get. Sofa slipcovers are the largest size available and are designed for couches with three seats. If you have a two-seater, then be sure to check the dimensions, as you will probably need a loveseat size instead.
2 Do you have regular cushions?
The majority of slipcovers are designed for seats with regular square-edged box cushions. If your cushions protrude in front of each arm, then you will need to look at T-cushion slipcovers that are specially constructed to accommodate this.
And if you have loose back cushions, this is another important detail to take into account. A standard slipcover won’t be large enough to fit over these, so you should be looking at three piece slipcovers. These come with an extra section to cover the back cushions.
3 What s Your Style?
Once you know what size and type of slipcover you’re looking for, you can start to narrow down your search by deciding which style you prefer. This is purely a matter of personal preference as to what will help you achieve your desired look for your room. Do you want a one piece, which will fit completely over the top of both your seat cushions and the body of your sofa? Or do you prefer the definition that a two piece, or separate seat, slipcover gives? Do you like the snug tailored look of a stretch fabric, or the classic look of cotton? What color will tie in with the rest of your room?
