Really, an ottoman is just a large padded or upholstered stool or bench.

Make your fabric selection based on how the sofa will be used, and where you will be placing it. If you are buying your sofa for an area of your home that is heavily used, a delicate fabric or color would be destroyed even before you’ve had a chance to enjoy it.

Select a color or pattern that does not let the fabric underneath show through unless that is the effect you are after. Textures add so much to the look and feel of any furniture. Consider the use of texture before you decide on your slipcovers. Textured fabric such as twill, damask or denim can add visual interest, while also resisting wrinkling.

Pads made out of a Dacron polyester fiber and down, known as Blendown pads, are wrapped around high-density foam. These pads can also be used with springs that have been wrapped up in foam. High-density foam surrounds the springs, which are then wrapped in down pads. The result is a soft surface with a strong, resilient support inside. This is a good option because the cushions do not lose their shape easily.

Once you decide if your sofa will be an accent or neutral color, you'll need to decide if your sofa will be light or dark. Your floor color has a big effect on choosing the right sofa color. If you´re considering a potential sofa sitting on your floor, will it float on a sea of dark wood flooring or carpet or will it blend into it? Since a sofa is traditionally large and upholstered, and most fabric absorbs light, it can darken a room considerably.

If you have many items to sell, a garage sale can be a good place to sell your couch, since such sales usually draw a good crowd of people looking for exactly this kind of bargain. Consider placing your used couch in a church, community center, or school rummage sale. Your participation might involve little more than hauling it there, which eliminates any worry about organizing a sale on your own. Consider this if your sofa happens to be the only item you need to sell.

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.
