Magic with Slipcovers
Magic with Slipcovers
Whether you’re furnishing an empty apartment or you simply want to give your existing room a makeover, one of easiest ways to save money with budget decorating is by using a slipcover over your couch.
A slipcover is a piece of fabric specially designed to fit snugly over couches of any shape and size once you tuck them in properly along their self-anchoring seems. There are fancier slip covers made of more expensive fabrics and cheaper ones that can also do the trick. Many manufacturers of slipcovers also provide matching pillows to add to the overall look.
So instead of buying a new couch, take a couple minutes and browse sites such as craigslist for used furniture. If you can find a cheap couch that is structurally sound, then a slipcover can make that piece of furniture look like new and even match a new room decor theme you were going for. You can literally save hundreds (even thousands) of dollars, while also having the luxury of changing your mind if you don’t happen to like the color you’ve chosen.
Make sure to do your research though as slipcovers will fit certain sofa structures better than other. Also, after researching some of the sites that sell them online, customers have complained that certain materials have a tendency to attract a ridiculous amount of lint.
Overall, if you have the extra time and are looking forward to a budget decorating adventure, then slipcovers are definitely the way to go.
I have eclectic interests - I enjoy reading a good book or getting up at the crack of dawn for a vigorous hike. Good friends, God, and country give my life meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. I also like good wine and cheese.. :-) In my free time I design Web sites so my creative energy is something I use on a daily basis. I also love playing guitar, experimenting with interior decorating, and I am madly passionate about my congas.. Throw in a trip or two every now and then, and that's basically me.
