Does the thought of trawling through so many websites stress you out? Take a deep breath and know it´s all for the greater good of your home. With so many options available, spending time on your search is the best way to ensure you love the couch you choose — and prevent settling. The worst part of buying a couch online: taking a chance on your comfort. If possible, it never hurts to take a trip to the showroom for a quick lay-down on the sofa you‘ve selected. But for most online retailers, there‘s no showroom.
When you choose sofa or chair slipcovers, you are actually choosing to dress up your furniture. Just as you would pay attention to fabric weight, textures, and fit when you dress a human body, you should consider what would best fit your piece of furniture. I should also point out that slipcovers may not always be the perfect solution for a certain chair or sofa styles.
Pin your samples on the wall and let yourself ponder for a day or two. Just like picking paint, this process takes time. Figure out what looks best in the morning — and which colors truly shine come sunset. Before committing to your perfect couch, look for a discount. Many stores offer 10–15% off just for signing up for their email newsletter — when you‘re buying an expensive product like a couch, those savings can be huge. Websites like Retail Me Not give an up-to-date overview of discounts, and Honey automatically applies the best discounts to your order.
