Sofa Slipcovers — Are They Worth It?

Giving up on the old sofa feels like getting rid of your favorite sweater that no longer fits.

You love the comfort, the color, and the style doesn’t seem that bad but you aren’t sure you can wear it in public again.

If you are not ready to splurge top dollar on a new sofa, there is a good way to make the most of your old couch without burning a hole in your pocket! Think of a 3 seater sofa cover as an affordable facelift for your tired large sofa! Is it worth it? More than you think! And here is why. 

1. Protect upholstery from damage

Accidents and spills are inevitable in small homes, not to mention the ones with pets and kids. Sofa slipcovers are designed to handle food stains, сlaws, and all sorts of wear and tear that do not fit into your budget.

Give preference to slipcovers with water-resilient properties, they are more likely to serve you for years to come. If your sofa constantly gets invaded by your pet, opt for slipcovers made of claw-proof materials, such as microfiber. 

2. Easy to care for

Another advantage of sofa slipcovers is easy cleaning. Some of them can be vacuumed, cleaned with a lint roller and machine washed. Just undo the zipper, take the slipcover off, put it in your washer, and take out the clean one! As simple as that.

A crisp and fresh-looking coach in a house with a toddler and a retriever isn’t a fantasy anymore! However, before machine washing, check the slipcover’s care tags to make sure it can be washed in the washer. 

3. Give a second life to your old furniture

Say, you suspect that your sofa needs replacement. At least you can tell that by your friends’ awkward excuses not to sit on it whenever they come over. Well, instead of dumping your favorite but tired settee, give it a makeover! Getting a slipcover won’t cost you an arm and a leg like actual reupholstering but might make your visitors think that you got a new sofa! 

4. A go-to option for pet lovers

Muddy paw prints, fur, and numerous accidents involving pets will neither ruin your upholstery nor your day if you have a set of removable slipcovers. Control the potential damage by slipcovering your sofa before letting your pet on the furniture! 

Claw-proof and pet-friendly sofa slipcovers are a win-win situation for both pet owners and their furry friends. Less stress, more bonding time and, what’s more important, absolutely clean upholstery at all times! 

5. Very Versatile

Bored of your current interior? Slipcovers are the best choice for picky decorators and simply those who are looking for an interior change. Rest assured, your house will get a brand-new look with a slipcover of trendy color!

You may look up for shades that exactly match your current interior style or experiment with printed sofa slipcovers. Any of these will brighten your room and keep you in high spirits while securely protecting your upholstery from damage. 

Well, now you have more reasons to trust sofa slipcovers. Money-wise, it’s a much better alternative to expensive reupholstering. Style-wise, slipcovers can substitute a full-fledged room makeover. Pets and children can finally relax too! No more scolding! So give it a try. It’s totally worth it!
