The largest sofa needs a width of only 15", while sectionals need 8". This is ideal for small spaces and apartments.

Your slipcovers do not have to reach the floor, even the loose ones can be made to a length that stops short of covering the legs. When you have a wooden frame on your sofa, it is best to leave the bottom exposed. However, if you prefer you can change the look by putting a skirt on it.

Think seriously about this couch and its intended use. Will it be a one-size-fits-all, everyone-is-welcome (including Fido!) family couch? Consider microfiber upholstery, which can handle a bit of rough-housing. Definitely don’t pick silk, which will rip the second your kitten’s claws come out. Or are you hoping to order a showcase piece for your formal living room? Go for silk, or pick something with a lot of texture.

The arms hold up fine, even with the wear, tear, and weight of rambunctious family members, friends, and pets. A year later, they still look brand new. The seat cushions are made of memory foam which will mold itself to the shape of your body for extra comfort and support. After a year of use, the Kivik sofas have proved to be as comfortable as they seemed in the IKEA showroom. The fabric is easy to remove and machine washable. The fabric that we chose was a nubby weave, which has probably helped the sofa´ s staying power because the fabric still looks new.

This type of wood is stronger and better suited to most types of furniture making. Soft woods come from evergreen trees such as pines and cedar. This type of wood can bend or dent easily and therefore is not suitable where you need strength, such as in sofa frames. So while it is good to look for kiln dried wood, remember to as if the frame is constructed from hardwood rather than soft wood.

DO have it covered in an appropriate fabric. If you have kids and pets you’ll want something that is either easy to clean or can hide spills and dirt. DO become familiar with sofa styles before choosing. Do you want high arms (tuxedo sofa), medium arms (lawson) low arms (bridgewater) or no arms (slipper)? D o you want curvy and round or straight and streamlined? Do you want one long cushion on the seat or several? Think about all these things before you buy.

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 hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.
