Change Things up with a Slipcover
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. Now, slipcovers can be used to change the entire color scheme of a room without the exorbitant expense of reupholstering the furniture. By adding a slipcover to furniture, a colonial classic room can become an art deco masterpiece in a matter of minutes. You can also consider a seasonal slipcover to help make your space warm and cozy for the holidays.
Maintain the Original Upholstery
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 are made from a variety of fabrics and in any color or pattern you choose. They can even be found in popular upholstery choices: suede, brocade, and damask. Slipcovers also range in price, those that are purchased for a few dollars resemble inexpensive bed linens and whenever anyone stands up from the couch, you must tuck the cover back into the cushions. Spending a few more dollars to have your slipcover custom-made can make all the difference between a stunning furniture ensemble and a grouping of poorly upholstered furniture.
Other ways to Change Things up
- 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.
- Declutter. 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.
