If you are looking for couch slipcovers that are easily affordable and can do wonders for your furniture, then you have chosen a very popular path among consumers. Couch slipcovers exist for any shape or size chair you might have and in a whole variety of colors and fabrics. There are floral prints, animal prints, pattern designs, geometric shapes, and of course the perennial favorite solids. Is your couch a recliner, love seat, sectional, or wing-back? Does it have square cushions or T cushions? Are the arms rounded, wedge, or square? Are there arms at all? Whatever type of couch you have, you can rest assured that there is a slipcover that will fit. Even for the oddest shaped couch, perhaps a corner sofa with one arm, it’s still possible to get a snug fitting slipcover that will look natural and absolutely gorgeous.
The secret to getting an exact fit depends largely on your budget. If you have a very expensive couch, it may be well worth considering this option even if there is nothing wrong with it. You may simply want to protect your pricey investment with a good-fitting slipcover that will do it justice. There is an answer to that. If your budget is high, then you can get custom made slipcovers cut precisely to the measurements you make on the chair in the comfort of your own home. Take the appropriate measurements as indicated by any slipcover fabricator and within a week you’ll get it shipped right to your door. The cheapest custom slipcovers start from $100 and move on upwards. The price can vary depending on the amount of fabric that is needed, the complexity of the design, and the type of material you choose. Synthetic suede or leather will definitely cost more than denim, which in turn costs more than plain cotton.
If you want the cheap and affordable route that most consumers take, then look into ready made slipcovers. These are made to fit most chairs reasonably well. There are size ranges that the slipcovers will fit, so be sure to make a few measurements of your existing couch so you know what slipcover sizes to look for. Also make note of the couch cushions and arm types. Note whether the couch uses square cushions or T cushions as this makes a big difference. T cushions are not perfectly square and have a small protrusion in the corner or corners depending on if it is a single cushion or more. The slipcovers are also made to fit different arm styles. You do not want to buy a wedge arm slipcover if you have square arms because it simply won’t fit right.
Cheaper still, you can opt for single piece slipcovers that only cover a portion of your sofa. At this point you are going for a very utilitarian route because you most likely have some damaged or dirty part of the couch that you want to protect and cover, but need not spend the extra on a full set that covers the entire couch. This approach can save you the money as slipcover sets generally come in two or three pieces. Why pay extra for slipcovers you simply don’t need? Look for cushion slipcovers that only cover the back or seat cushions and you’ll be on your way.
You can still get all the goodness of slipcovers, notably the design flair it gives, if you want the cheapest upgrade you can do. These cheap slipcovers are designed to fit on the arms of your couch only. They aren’t big pieces of fabric and you don’t have to hassle over trying to fit two cushions into one slipcover. The fit right over the arms of your sofa and are sold in pairs. Again it’s important to make note of your arm types before you shop for these arm slipcovers. You can, because they are so cheap, just get arm slipcovers just as an added decorating touch to bring a little life into your couch. They are so affordable you don’t really need a good excuse to buy them, and they come in sets of pairs to cover both sofa arms.
With so many options for cheap couch slipcovers to choose from, there is a way to get a slipcover for your home needs regardless of your budget. Ranging from the high budget customs to bare budget arm covers, there are slipcovers to fit everyone’s needs. Couch slipcovers are all easy to wash and are great for giving your couch new life so you can continue to enjoy them for many more years.
