Fitted Sofa Slipcovers - What Are The Benefits From Using Them?
Fitted sofa slipcovers are becoming more popular, entering many households and easing budgetary concerns imposed due to the recession. After all, everyone loves a pretty and elegant living room, but not all can find the money to spare on redecoration. Opting to use fitted sofa slipcovers cuts costs down to a fraction of what it would be if you choose to re-upholster your furniture, or replace it with new ones.
In the good old days, the way to deal with an old sofa was to renew it by a replacement of the upholstery. It took time, and it cost a lot. The workmen who could do a good job of it had their own quirks and idiosyncracies which the home owner had to put up with. They often had very limited choices, or fabric had to be bought elsewhere and brought to the upholsterer - who would then refuse to work with it because it wasn't suitable!
Those days are long gone. But some restrictions haven't relaxed. And that's why fitted sofa slipcovers placed over old furniture neatly sidestep this problem completely - and cut down on excessive time spent at the repair shop. You can have your living room re-done instantly - with speed and efficiency unimaginable in the past!
Sofa slipcovers are cost effective, too. You won't pay anywhere near as much as with a re-upholstery job. And you won't need to struggle with complexities such as finding a craftsman or tailor who can handle the intricacies of your needs.
Another option that existed before was to simply replace an old sofa or loveseat if you didn't like the design or how it matched the decor of your room. But this is expensive, and it can cost thousands to replace a really good sofa. As your original furniture isn't damaged badly enough or worn out, and may well last many more years, using fitted sofa slipcovers is a far better choice than replacement.
If you pick the right material for a slipcover, you can give your outdated and ancient sofa a brand new look. That's why today's decorators are offering this as an option to their clients. They save their clients money, and can justifiably keep a larger share of that budget for their fees. It's a smart investment choice for the home owner too.
A well-chosen fitted sofa slipcover can allow an interior decorator to express their taste and skill in designing a room. While you may not find a sofa that meets your desired specifications to fit the room's design, it is almost always possible to find (or create) a fitted sofa slipcover that will - and then use it to cover furniture.
Surely there are circumstances under which buying a new piece of furniture is indicated. But in many cases, a good fitted slipcover is just as effective and a lot more cost efficient. The only difficulty with slipcovers is getting the measurements right. So before you order a fitted slipcover, make sure that you measure your furniture carefully and accurately.
Fitted sofa slipcovers are therefore an attractive solution for decorating homes and add to the style and decor of many living rooms - without costing a fortune.
