Design Tips: Choosing The Right Slipcover Sofa
Guide to choosing the right size and style slipcovered sofa for your living room
Our Boat House’s slipcovered furniture collection will give your home an instant coastal vacation feel. Our beach house collection of slipcovered sofas, sleepers and loveseats combine coastal luxury with affordability.
1. Size & Space. Size comes first. How much room do you have? You'll need to decide exactly how much of the room you want your slipcovered sofa to fill. Do you have other furniture it needs to fit in the space with? Measure your space and the area you have for the sofa to go to make sure your new coastal slipcovered sofa will fit
2. Location & Function. Decide exactly how the sofa will be oriented. What do you do the most in that space? Will this sofa be for enjoying the ocean view or relaxing and watching TV? Make sure your couch faces that direction. Deeper sofas offer a larger space for those naps after a day spent by the ocean.
3. Shape & Style. Find your favorite shape and style for your coastal home, with so many options you need to have a plan for your sofa. Square arm sofas are more formal and modern, while rolled arm sofas are casual and inviting. Sectional slipcover sofas are great for family style beach house seating around the TV. Sectionals give you more seating and can make the most of a space.
4. Material of slipcover. Aesthetic is important, but functionality is key when it comes to choosing a material for your sofa. That said the brilliance of a slipcovered sofa is that you can remove the cover and clean it. From cotton to canvas, Sunbrella to linen we offer a large selection of beach house inspired fabrics to create the perfect custom, slipcovered sofa for you.
