Slip your sofa into something more comfortable (and more stylish!) in order to give it a fresh new look. Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) and they’re available in a huge variety of fabrics and colors. You can have them custom made if you want the perfect fit, or you can buy something in a standard size for a looser fit. And if you have an IKEA sofa you’re in luck – there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.
This isn’t a sofa hack per se, but sometimes you can completely update a piece simply by changing what’s around it. Try some new art on the wall over the sofa, some new wallpaper on the wall behind it, or even new side tables and lamps on either side of it. When it's surrounded by different and beautiful things, your sofa might just look a little different and beautiful too!
Repeat this step with remaining seat cushions. Total cost for the Poly-fil and batting? Under $40. Not too shabby! For the seat cushions, I simply wrapped quilt batting around the entire seat and stuffed it back into the covers. Placing the fill behind the existing cushion will help to keep everything looking smooth. Pack the Poly-fil in like you're stuffing a turkey.
