When you hear the word “slipcover” you will think about the traditional skirted sofas that have unfitted floral covers. Actually, you have to see the modern ready-made slipcovers with their inviting colors, materials, and sizes, as they can help your old sofa look as a brand new one. You can even customize such a slipcover or make it yourself to get satisfying results.
The full size sheets can be perfect no-sew covers to your sofa, especially if they have the matching color and fabric to your space and needs. To cover your sofa with such a sheet, you should remove the seat and back cushions and lay the sheet on the sofa from the front to the back and tuck the sides into the outskirts into the internal sides of the sofa. The armrests may need another sheet to provide your sofa a fitted look and cover it firmly.
Instead, you can get Jersey or stretching fabric with more than the perfect measurements of your sofa to sew its outskirts together and create under and top layers on the seat, back, armrests, and backside of the sofa. The color of your slipcover should complement the existing colors in your living room, but try to choose a couple of decorative elements with the same color of the slipcovers to create a statement in the place.
You can get a readymade slipcover with your favorite fabric including leather, cotton, polyester, and vinyl. The slipcover with two layers will protect your sofa when you wash the outer layer. Such readymade slipcovers have sizing recommendations to help you find the perfect size for your sofa’s dimensions. If you can’t find a suitable slipcover size for your sofa, you can order a customized one with your favorite size, color, fabric, shape, and style.
However, the fabric of your customized slipcover should be washable, stain resistant, and shrink resistant to avoid several problems in the future. Now, you should flatten the slipcover of your sofa to take the shape of its curves and lines and provide your space a clean look.
