If you're tired of your interior decor, but can't justify replacing perfectly good furniture, linen slipcovers are an easy solution. With one simple purchase, a drab couch can be transformed. In addition to changing the look of your furniture, linen slipcovers also serve as a shield protecting expensive upholstery from being stained or damaged by kids and pets.
Built-in slipcovers. If you are in the market for a new couch or arm chair, keep an eye out for furniture designed with existing slipcovers. This makes it easy to remove and clean them as needed. It's a must-have feature if you plan on having white or light colored furnishings. Even without kids or pets, stains are inevitable with lighter colored fabric.
Custom-designed slipcovers. If you have found the perfect chair or couch, but aren't overly fond of the color or print options, slipcovers can be made by a competent upholsterer. You can purchase linen fabric in a wide range of colors or patterns. Or, white linens can be dyed to match a fabric color you like. While you're at it, you can also have complementary slipcovers made for your accent pillows.
Removable slipcovers. If you can't be bothered with the individual sections, purchase removable slipcovers that can be taken off in one piece. These are a great idea for dining room chairs, which are the most prone to spills and stains.
