I don’t know exactly when slipcovers were invented, but I believe that it was at least a century ago. Since then, people have been gladly using them with different intentions for different types of furniture (sofas, recliners, chairs). They were using it for changing the look of furniture or simply because they wanted to protect furniture upholstering. Because slipcovers are still popular nowadays, I would like to present you 3 in my opinion best advantages of them.
1.) Easy to use
I believe that simplicity is slipcovers best advantage. They can be put on and off furniture within minutes, which makes them very attractive. People like this benefit so much because they can change slipcovers in case furniture gets dirty or in case some other accidents. This actually means that in case you have slipcovers over your furniture, you don’t have to worry about anything and when something happens, you can change it in one minute. Worrying for your new couch when your grandchildren are on vacation is over and even pets aren’t problem anymore.
2.) Different sizes, colors and patterns
Slipcovers can be bought in several sizes, colors and patterns, which means that everyone can find the best suiting slipcovers for all pieces of their furniture. In case you decide to redecorate your home, all you need to do is buy other slipcovers – you don’t have to buy all new furniture. This will save you a lot of money and time (at least for me, moving furniture is a nightmare).
3.) Affordable price
Not only slipcovers will save you a lot of money, they can also be bought for a very low price. You will be able to find them in different stores, from more generic to specialized ones. But, despite the fact that slipcovers aren’t expensive, I don’t recommend buying the cheapest one. Be careful that you buy slipcovers that are made of quality material and that they are machine washable. This will save you a lot of problems in the future.
