Sleeper Sofa Slipcover – How To Pick And Choose A Good One?
So you have a sleeper couch and want to buy a nice furniture slip cover for it. That’s a good choice and an economically viable one when compared to re-upholstering or replacing a sleeper. But before you set out to buy a sleeper sofa slip cover, watch out for these pitfalls.
Try and visit a shop in your neighborhood to inspect the options available in person. You could get your covers made to order and home-delivered by ordering them online, but getting a personal look will prevent any surprises. Feel the material. Assess the size to see if it will be a good fit for your sofa.
Make sure the cover is appropriate for a sleeper sofa. Most are made from material that will stretch to allow slight variations in size. But that doesn’t mean it will definitely fit your furniture. Take measurements along when you go shopping.
Choose durable material that will last long. While a nice appearance is good, it won’t help much if the material is too flimsy or fragile to withstand the normal use a sleeper will be put to. And go for the best quality you can afford to buy.
If you don’t find the right size or design, consider ordering a custom slip cover. They may be a little more costly, though, but the payoff is a well-fitted sleeper sofa slip cover that makes your room look more elegant and nice.
Once you’ve picked the right brand, size and design, don’t order right away but do some comparison shopping online. Chances are you’ll find the same (or similar) piece at a lower price on one of the Web stores, or get a discount coupon that can save you some money on your purchase.
Finally, avoid fancy and frilly stuff like bows and ties. These get caught on different things during use, and often rip off quickly, leaving the slip cover looking less attractive and don’t justify the higher price you’ll pay for such extras.
