Slipcovers Can Change the Look or Feel of a Room

Slipcovers can be used to change the entire color scheme of a room without the exorbitant expense of reupholstering the furniture. In a matter of minutes, a colonial classic room can become an art deco masterpiece, just by changing the slipcovers on the furniture. Why not consider a seasonal slipcover to help make your space warm and cozy for the holidays? Slipcovers are not what you may remember. Years ago, our grandmothers covered their furniture with plastic, zipped covers that stuck to our legs in the summer and made noise every time we moved. Thank goodness those are a thing of the past.

Fabric Choices for Slipcovers Are Endless

Slipcovers can be made from a variety of fabrics, in any color or pattern you choose. They can even be found in popular upholstery choices such as suede, brocade, and damask. One of the main reasons to purchase slipcovers for sofas is to maintain the original upholstery for longer. Slipcovers for couches are usually fitted by the length, height, and width of the sofa and are easily installed and removed for cleaning or storage. Slipcovers that can be purchased for a few dollars resemble inexpensive bed linens. Whenever anyone stands up from the couch, you must tuck the cover back into the cushions. Spending a few more dollars having your slipcover custom-made can make all the difference between a stunning furniture ensemble and a grouping of poorly upholstered furniture.

Other Ways to Update

Use complementary decorative pillows to add unique textures, patterns, softness, and depth to a room. Reupholster your dining room chairs in custom fabric to instantly change the look and feel of your room. Add an area rug to define a conversation area or add pizzazz to any room. Try placing your rug at an angle, such as under a coffee table, to help it stand out. Rugs are a great way to add a new color to any room, or freshen up otherwise dull floors. Finally, say “no” to clutter. Nothing diminishes the look of a room more than clutter. Clear the clutter by using crafty storage spaces for papers, mail, toys, coats, and other items that can give a room a disorganized, messy feel.
