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.
People are creatures of habit, and when it comes to relaxing we often, without thinking, head to our favorite spot on the sofa. But sitting in the same spot over and over again can do the sofa quite a bit of harm—crushing the fibers and wearing down the springs underneath. So mix it up and sit on different parts of the sofa. One day sit on the left side, one day sit on the right, and another day try the middle. Distributing the weight evenly over time will help anyone spot from deteriorating too quickly.
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.
