An Overview On

Technically, we may spend most of our time in bed. But it’s in the living room — specifically the sofa — where we do most of our living. And unfortunately for many of us, it shows. Dogs, cats and roughhousing kids can all accelerate the regular wear and tear on your couch’s fabric. If your sofa doesn’t look nice, the living room can’t look nice no matter how attractive the decor is. Luckily, there’s a way to protect it and still keep things comfy: The sofa slipcover.

Your grandparents may have simply used blankets or quilts to keep their furniture safe, but slipcovers have come a long way since then. Nowadays you can find fitted covers that tuck into all the crevices of your couch and look like a second skin. Choose the right one, and you can expect both your couch and cover to last a lifetime.

The first thing you need to do when buying a slipcover is size things up. Measure the outside edges of your sofa front to back and side to side, or consult the manufacturer’s specs to get an exact measurement. This kind of info should be all you need for most fitted slipcovers, unless you’re getting the kind that will fit your cushions individually. In that case, you’ll need length, width and depth for those as well.

When shopping for slipcovers, you’ll find many different configurations. And while their primary purpose is to protect your couch, keep the looks in mind as well. If you’ve got a classically-built sofa with carved legs or exposed wood on the armrests, you want to make sure those elements aren’t covered up. Not only will the cover not protect those parts, it’ll make the entire piece of furniture very unappealing.

Most covers tuck tightly into the sides and under the cushions, but you’ll want to consider how much use the couch gets when determining how they stay tucked. Is your couch primarily for low-key relaxation? A stretch-fit slipcover might be all you need. These one-piece versions are easy to put on and take off, and they’ll fit snugly as long as there’s not much movement. Got kids or pets that are prone to crawling along the furniture? You might opt for a slipcover with straps or ties that keep things tighter. Separate covers for the cushions are usually the most expensive option, but visitors likely won’t be able to tell you’re using a slipcover at all (as long as you’ve got the correct size).

You’ll need to weigh the same balance of form and function when choosing your material. If that couch is a frequent playground, your best bet is probably a denim or faux leather slipcover. Not only will they resist tearing, but both materials can handle their share of spills. Faux leather or vinyl in particular can simply be wiped clean, though they may not be the most comfortable covers to sit on.

Polyester or microfiber covers are much softer, and they tend to have a less distinctive look. Both can handle stains well and won’t wrinkle easily, though major messes might necessitate a deep clean in the washing machine.

Cotton or linen covers are going to feel and look elegant, though you may have to occasionally smooth them out. They’re not the best at handling stains, but are certainly better than no cover at all. In the end, it’s all about choosing the cover that fits your sofa and your lifestyle.

The Buying Guide

Slipcovers aren’t just a way to protect your precious, brand new sofa. Many use them as a way to breathe new life into old couches if they can’t afford reupholstering. That’s certainly a viable option if you’re buying for looks alone. If you need to cover up some patchy spots, make sure you choose a thicker material such as denim or twill that you can’t see or feel through easily.

Still, keep in mind that slipcovers won’t make your couch much more comfortable no matter what kind of fabric you buy. If your sofa is worn down to the point that it is sagging or springs are poking through, it might be time to bite the bullet and buy a new one.
