That’s when reviews come in handy. Let previous buyers be your guide: did they find it too soft, too hard, or too flimsy? Pay attention to their critiques. But also pay attention to how the store responds. Flukes do happen, especially with online sales — sometimes couches come off the assembly line with a flawed coil spring or too much stuffing. Companies that respond admirably (say, by replacing the customer’s couch) are likely still worthy of your time.
If something spills on your sofa, it's important to clean it immediately. Allowing stains to set in the fabric means they may become virtually impossible to clean. It will always vary depending on the fabric and the material that has soiled it, but if you don't take care of it right away, you run the risk of ruining it for good.
Slipcovers come in many many looks ranging from loose and flowing to very precisely tailored ones. Decide on a look that fits your room. You can choose a loose or relaxed look for a casual effect, or select a tailored look that fits the lines of your sofa or chair more closely for a more formal look. Let your general decorating style dictate the look along with the shape of the piece.
