Slip your sofa into something more comfortable (and more stylish!) in order to give it a fresh new look. Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) and they’re available in a huge variety of fabrics and colors. You can have them custom made if you want the perfect fit, or you can buy something in a standard size for a looser fit. And if you have an IKEA sofa you’re in luck – there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.
This is what it looked like when I arrived. As you can see, it actually had frown lines and wrinkles. What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.
The easiest and likely least expensive option is to get some new throw pillows. Throw pillows have the power to transform the ambiance in almost unlimited ways. You can play with pattern, shape, size and material. If you currently have something neutral or dark go for bright and bold; if you’ve got a floral pattern try something geometric; and if you have a material that’s rough opt instead for something soft. Throw pillows come in every imaginable style so there’s no limit to what you can do.
