Why armchair slipcovers are necessary

Slipcovers for upholstered furniture have important functions. The first is excellent protection from dust and dirt. The second - they noticeably change the appearance, forming it in accordance with the interior. After all, over time, furniture that is in one place begins to lose its aesthetic beauty, boring not only the owner of the house, but also potential guests. Armchair Slipcovers, in this case, seem like a great solution to any problems. Not only do they increase the longevity of the furniture, but they also make it more colorful. Of course, in this case, you are not so afraid of stains, or minimal damage, as they can be easily hidden.

The main feature of covers is their versatility . They are well suited for any piece of furniture. Any stains are easier to remove from the cover, rather than from the chair upholstery. In a pinch, the cover can be replaced with a new one. Despite the universality of protective fabrics, you should keep in mind that every piece of furniture has its own size. Therefore, before buying the cover, you need to make accurate measurements, taking into account the back of the chair and armrests. In the U.S., there are a large number of companies that offer their customers to purchase chair covers, sofas and other pieces of home furniture. Among them is worth mentioning Mamma Mia Covers. The company clearly understands what customers need, and therefore implements all the thoughts and suggestions in new instances. The obvious advantage of the company can be considered the presence of an online store. Accordingly, the potential buyer can get acquainted with the catalog of the goods from home.

A very important role also plays the material from which the case is made. As a rule, it is:

A cape is a piece of fabric, processed with a sewing machine or by hand. Covers can be made of natural or man-made materials:

Cotton. The most popular, breathable and natural material. Characterized by hygienic and environmental indicators, safety. The material is good to use in children's rooms, there are bright and varied drawings, numerous colors. The disadvantage - short-lived, the fabric is quickly wiped.

Flax. natural, beautiful, dense and safe material. Well absorbs moisture, "breathes", soft to the touch.

Viscose or Jacquard. Attractive and delicate material with a matte or glossy base. As a rule, the fabric has patterns and drawings.

Teak. A mixed material made from a cotton base. The appearance is a herringbone pattern with a characteristic sheen. Practically does not burn out under sunlight, does not shed during washing, does not stretch during use.

Polyester. The material is elastic and is used for European slipcovers. It stretches strongly and easily. The fabric is characterized by high durability.

Velour. Externally similar to velvet, but with a shorter pile. It differs by its low cost in comparison with velvet. The material is not capricious, easy to clean. Suitable for people with allergies.

Corduroy. Wear-resistant, does not crumple, does not burn out. High cost. In the presence of sunlight appears a characteristic sheen.

Flock. One more analogue of velvet. It is soft, gentle, with a rich palette of colors. It does not crumple, it is not electrifying, water-resistant and it does not fade under direct sunlight.

Each of these materials has its own advantages and disadvantages. Depending on the choice of the buyer, the price varies.

Is it possible to make the cover on the chair by yourself?

To sew a cape with your own hands, you need preliminary preparation. First, it will be necessary to pick up an appropriate template - a pattern. Take the dimensions. Secondly, it is necessary to pick up the material and decorative elements. The most difficult step in creating the cover by hand is directly sewing. If you have no experience, it is unlikely that the perfect protective fabric will turn out the first time. Therefore, you can make a trial version, for example, from an old pillowcase.
All pieces of upholstered furniture wear out over time. It is not always possible to buy a new chair due to its high cost. But you can decorate it with a suitable cape. If you learn how to do everything qualitatively and take into account the possible nuances in the process of creating the cover, the procedure will seem to a person as simple as possible. However, this understanding comes with experience.
