No codes to be found? If your couch-buying needs aren't urgent, consider waiting for a major sale. These events are often centered around major holidays or long weekends and can dramatically decrease the price you pay. Stores frequently hold smaller sales, too: once you've got all the details picked out, consider pausing your purchase and checking the site´s homepage on a daily basis. You may just find a fantastic deal.
Not all shapes lend themselves well to being slipcovered. If your chair or sofa has a wooden frame around it or wooden arms, a slip cover may not be a good idea as they will be felt through the fabric. A piece that is covered in fabric leads you to believe that it will have a soft feel, and the hardness of wood underneath will not feel pleasant. Details such as welting can be an attractive feature in a slipcover. You can buy slipcovers with welting, or order ones that have it when you get them custom made or make them yourself. Decide whether you want self-welting or contrast welting on your slipcovers. Contrast welting will draw attention to the lines of your chair or sofa. If you want to emphasize them choose contrast welting, to play down the shape choose self-welting. Braids, fringes or buttons can also be added depending on the look you want.
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.
