How to buy the best slipcovered sofas

Slipcovered furniture has not only come a long way in terms of comfort and styling it has also  become a timeless trend. There are many options in design styles that are not only beautiful but, functional as well. We love the attitude, it is more relaxed and inviting for casual living. Perfect for coastal style homes and families with kids and dogs. There are so many carefree fabrics that are easily washable. Cotton denims are sturdy and wear well. Acrylic indoor/outdoor fabrics are also a good choice, because they are fade and soil resistant. There are some washable linens but most are dry clean only.

Choosing A Style
Slipcovered furniture comes in slipcovered sofas, slipcovered chairs, slipcovered sleeper sofas and slipcovered sectionals. You can find a slipcovered style to fit any decor. The styles vary from sleek, clean lines with straight arm slipcovered furniture to more traditional rolled arms or a shabby chic look.

Look For Details
Details like contrast welt can really give the slipcovered sofas a designer look.Well made slipcovered sofas, have slipcovers that are fitted tightly and have zippers. Double stitching is important because it prevents the fabrics from fraying in the wash.

Comfort is Key
A knowledgable sales person can direct you to the best fit for you. Slipcovered sofas range in depth from an average 36" deep to 40" or more. Some people prefer a sofa that is not extra deep because they are not tall or older. Tall people who want a more relaxed lounge type sit will be happier with at least 40" deep. Slipcovered cushions come in a variety of fills. High density foam will give a firmer sit then a down cushion. When considering down look for a company who offers an inner core foam with down wrap. This will keep your cushions from getting too flat.

Construction Is Important
A well made slipcovered sofa frame will be made from hard woods and kiln dried to prevent warping, mildew and odors. They will also have corner blocking in the frames for stability. Look for companies that make products that are eco friendly. That's not only better the the environment but a safer product to use.  Concern for the environment is a true sign of a responsible company who cares.
