Let’s talk Slipcovers!

If the budget doesn’t allow for all new furniture, there is an alternative. Slipcovers can provide a quick and easy makeover for any room in your home.

Slipcovers are very versatile and you can change the entire color palette of a room.  Dark upholstery pieces that create a warm, inviting atmosphere in the winter months may seem a bit too warm for spring and summer. Solution: Light Colors which can create a cool haven for those hot, humid days.

Do you have kids and pets? Slipcovers can be a relatively inexpensive way to extend the life of your new furniture. Just think, when the kids head off to college, you can whip off the slipcover and have a brand-new sofa!

Ready-made slipcovers are available in most home-decor stores and catalogs, but will not fit like a custom fitted slipcover.  They come in a variety of styles and sizes. Custom fitted slipcovers are also an option from Simplicity Sofas, but only for our sofas, chairs and sectionals.  The great feature of a custom fitted slipcover is that you do not need to tuck in the fabric every time you get up.  The main part of the slipcover fits over the entire base and each cushion has its own cover.  The pictures below explain it all.

Be Bold

Don’t be afraid to use color in your slipcovers when designing your space.  A festive red sofa with patterned slipcovers for an extra splash of color.  Lightly painted walls and open windows create an open airy space.
