If your furniture could do with a new look, then you may be interested in some custom slipcovers. Unlike re-upholstery, a slipcover can be easily replaced whenever you feel like a change and can be removed when it needs cleaning. Custom slipcovers are a great idea if your furniture is in good condition, but you just fancy a change of appearance, or if you want to protect the existing fabric from wear and tear.
A fitted slipcover can be made to measure to fit your particular furniture exactly. Because they are custom made these sort of slipcovers fit very snuggly, a bit like a second skin. There is no need for elastic or ties, as there is with ready made slipcovers. Fitted slipcovers can look very smart and stylish, but of course they do cost more than standard one-size-fits-all slipcovers.
The price really depends on your particular requirements, such as how big your furniture is and how much fabric you need. The quality of the fabric will also affect the price. Be wary of very cheap fabrics as you may be getting an inferior product that will not last long after the first wash. Good quality slipcovers can last for years. Other costs involved include the personal service you will receive, such as house calls to take measurements of your furniture.
Custom slipcovers can totally transform the appearance of your furniture, not just be changing the fabric, but by altering the design as well. For example, custom slipcovers can have covered welt accents or decorative skirts if you choose. So you have the option of hiding the legs of your furniture or putting them on display. You can get a brand new look for your room without having to replace your furniture.
So, if you think it’s time for a change, why not consider some custom slipcovers for your home?
