How to Choose a Sofa Slipcover:
• First, ask yourself whether you want a measured, fitted slipcover or a throw. Slipcovers wrap around your furniture and give it a brand-new look and feel, while throws are more casual and easier to clean and care for.
• Measure your furniture for the correct size. Many slipcovers are designed to fit average sofa and loveseat sizes, but odd-sized furniture may require careful measurements to ensure your slipcover doesn’t feel too loose.
• Measure the distance from your sofa to the floor as well. Some slipcovers have ruffles or a fringe that covers the gap between the floor and the sofa.
• Determine the style of your slipcover. Are you going for a formal look, or something casual and beachy?
• Finally, select the appropriate material. Cotton, denim and canvas are easy to clean and lay comfortably on furniture, while wool and silk are more elegant and soft to touch, but require dry cleaning.
