Getting a new sofa can be a difficult, expensive task — but simply buying a new cover for your existing sofa is a great deal more achievable! If replacement soft furnishings aren't the right choice for your family at the moment, here are three ways a new made-to-measure chair cover or two can totally overhaul both your soft furnishings and the space they're installed in. If this sounds like a good idea, start your search with a local company; even if they're not where you got your sofa, they'll often offer services like this on a custom, made-to-measure basis.
#1: Making a tired, battered sofa look as fresh and new as the day it was made.
A sofa is one of the hearts of family life. Children climb and play on it; couples curl up on it for quality time together; pets sleep, shed, and claw on it while enjoying proximity to their humans. All this movement and activity makes your sofa a precious place, but it can take its toll on the upholstery itself! If things have started to look a little ragged around the edges over the years, a sofa cover is the way to go — you might be surprised by how transformative a fresh new chair cover can be for a living room space.
#2: Matching with a new colour scheme, or highlighting different parts of an old one.
Big furniture pieces can feel a little limiting when you're considering changing the overall design scheme of a particular room. Paint is affordable and you can easily repaint the walls — but then nothing else will match, and something like a sofa is much more difficult and costly to replace. This is where a custom-made cover comes in! It's an easy way to overhaul your existing furniture without having to spend all the extra money on buying things new. If you're not ready for a new sofa but you are ready for a new look, a custom chair cover is the way to go.
#3: Changing with the seasons, the holidays, and the general mood of your home.
There's no reason you need to have only one sofa cover! They're custom-made to fit your specific chairs, they're often pretty affordable, and they're usually very easy to change — so you can buy several and swap between them as you fancy. You could have a different cover for every season of the year, or special themed covers for Halloween or Christmas or whatever holidays are important to you and your household.
