Your slipcovers do not have to reach the floor, even the loose ones can be made to a length that stops short of covering the legs. When you have a wooden frame on your sofa, it is best to leave the bottom exposed. However, if you prefer you can change the look by putting a skirt on it.
But hopefully, everything will turn out wonderfully — and any minor problems will be quickly corrected. Once your new couch is settled into its home, grab a blanket, pop some popcorn and enjoy the comfiest, coziest Netflix-and-chill experience ever. The golden rule of sofa cost vs. quality is that a low- to mid-priced sofa should last about 10 years, while higher priced sofas should last 25 years or more. But sadly, most people don't take proper care of their sofas, and as a result, even high-quality pieces can get old before their time. Most people don´t want to ruin their sofas, but if you´re doing any of these things, that‘s exactly what will happen.
Slipcovers will change the look of your chair or sofa, but the feel or underlying structure will not change. So if your sofa is lumpy, or the springs are sticking out, simply getting new slipcovers will not magically make them more comfortable. A slipcover is cosmetic change only, not a structural one. If your furniture is falling apart, this budget solution could turn out to be a wasteful expense because you stand to gain nothing from it. You are better off buying new furniture or reupholstering so that the filling is repaired as well.
