The plastic see-through couch slip covers that you remember from the past are not very common any longer. In fact, they are pretty hard to find in typical stores, though you may find them more easily online. Otherwise, the selection out there is much more stylish and a lot more comfortable than the older style. You can find plain colors or you can find modern designs and patterns all made with fabric. It is not always easy to find the perfect color, but you can find something close, or you can keep shopping until you find something that you think will be great for your room.
One of the main reasons why people go to find couch slip covers is because they no longer like the look of their couch, but they still think it is comfortable and in good shape otherwise. Perhaps they have a nice couch, but someone spilled something on it. They don’t want to buy a new one, but they certainly don’t want to look at the stain. A slip cover is an easy solution. Even better, if something else is spilled, the slip cover can be removed and washed at home. Some require dry cleaning, but that is far less expensive than getting a new couch.
You can also prevent those stains and accidents by getting the couch slip covers before something happens. You can prevent some problems if you have children or pets that love to be on the couch. No matter how hard you try, there is no way you can keep everything off of your couch unless you do drape it in that dreaded plastic. A good slip cover can catch the stains hopefully before they hit the fabric of the couch. It can also be removed to be cleaned when it is covered with pet hair if you find that trying to vacuum or otherwise remove pet hair to be a pain in the neck.
You may love your couch so much that you don’t want to cover the entire thing with couch slip covers. Many of them cover the entire thing, but you don’t have to do it that way if you don’t want to. You can always find slipcovers that you can put just over the cushions upon which you sit. This can make a single color couch into a two-tone couch if you like that look, or you can get the same color of the cushions so that the slipcover is the same as the original couch. No one may realize you are using a slipcover that way and you have preserved your couch or you have covered up that grape juice you just can’t seem to get to come out of the fabric.
