Sofa Slipcovers - Give Your Home an Instant Makeover!
by by Caroline Smith

Description: How to give your living room an instant makeover by using sofa slipcovers.

Sofa slipcovers are designed to be easy to fit over your existing upholstery, to give your furniture a fresh new look and protect the fabric underneath. If your favorite sofa is looking a bit tired or outdated, but is generally in good condition, you could give it a new lease of life simply by adding some stylish sofa covers. Furniture slipcovers are a quick and affordable alternative to re-upholstery or buying a new suite. A well made sofa slipcover can be bought for under $200. If you want to improve the appearance of your sofas or chairs, without a lot of inconvenience or expense, slip covers could be the answer.

Ready made slipcovers for sofas are large sheets of fabric made to cover the whole sofa and are held in place with elastic or ties. Many people like to have several sets of these relatively cheap slipcovers, so they can change the look and feel of their entire room whenever they like. Most sofa slip covers are made from durable fabrics such as, stretch cotton or twill, that can easily be washed clean in the machine, so thereís no need to worry about them getting dirty. And there are so many different slipcover patterns to choose from, youíre sure to find a style that fits in with your decor and color scheme.

For a more fitted look, custom slipcovers are a slightly more expensive option. Custom made or fitted slipcovers are specially cut to fit your furnitureís exact measurements, and you can completely change the style of your sofa if you wish. For example, you could choose to hide the legs with a pleated skirt. Custom fit covers are often a good choice if youíre looking for sectional slipcovers. There are lots of online stores selling top quality furniture covers, such as Surefit slipcovers, in a huge range of designs at great prices.

And itís not just sofas - all kinds of seats can be slipcovered. The choice includes ottoman, loveseat, recliner and dining chair slipcovers. With slipcovers you can smarten up all your favorite chairs in a matter of minutes!
