Don’t Settle for Drab, Mass-Produced Sofa Slipcovers
by ABBY LU
You know the dilemma: You have just purchased a really beautiful and expensive sofa set. Alas, you know that it won’t stay that way for long, what with your pets roaming free and a child who spills anything liquid they come into contact with.

Then your search for the perfect slipcover begins. What begins as a benign task soon becomes a nightmare. You can’t find something that is “just right” – the colour, texture, or print seems wrong. And you know that anything you settle for will be a blight on your perfectly designed living room.
Thankfully, however, there are ways to avoid that heartache. Many companies offering fine fabrics such as Acacia work with interior decorators that sew and install custom-made sofa slipcovers. This means that you can select the exact colour tone, fabric texture, and textile print for your sofa slipcover. Therefore, the sofa slipcover doesn’t have to look like one.
Apart from obvious reasons related to aesthetics, this is a great solution for several reasons:
Your sofa remains protected at all times. This is key purpose of having a sofa slipcover in the first place. A customised slipcover means that you could also select other key features for your unique needs. For instance, would you prefer something that is scratch resistant? Or do you lean towards the smooth sheen of Egyptian cotton? Or would you like something that is practical and machine-washable. The point is, it is yours to choose.

Refresh your living room from time to time. Maybe you’re someone who likes a change of scenery every now and then. Or you may be getting bored of the same old couch. With the option of selecting different, high-quality sofa slipcovers, you don’t have to settle with just one look. You can now change it as often as you wish. You could also select slipcovers that are à la mode to go with the fashion of the season. Your living room will never appear outdated again.
Stay coordinated. Let’s consider the scenario in which you redecorate your living room. The sofa set could easily be one of the most expensive and bulkiest item in this area. Suppose you would like to change the wall colour, curtains, or rugs. If you are keeping the sofa, your choices will be highly constrained. Why limit yourself that way? Go with whatever your heart desires and select a slipcover that will match the new scheme later on.

Value for money. Although a customised sofa slipcover may be more expensive than others, a slipcover made of high quality fabric will actually help you save money in the long run. Naturally, it will suffer less wear-and-tear compared to run-of-the-mill slipcovers. Apart from that, if you settle for something you’re not happy with in the first place, you may be more inclined to replace it sooner, which means you’ll end up spending more. As with clothes, quality is something that will always stay in style.
