A Few Things To Know Before You Buy
Before you start shopping for a cover, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you’re getting the right option.
- MEASURE YOUR SOFA
Most covers come in standard sizes that are designed to fit a range of sofas. Just be sure to measure the length, width, and depth to be certain you are ordering the right size. (When in doubt, go with a larger size. It’s better to have extra material than be struggling daily to keep the cover in place.) Also, keep in mind whether your sofa has loose or attached seat and back cushions (and how many) and go for a cover with the same configuration.
- PICK THE RIGHT FABRIC
If you want a super snug fit, be sure to select a cover in a stretch fabric. Most stretch options will consist of an acrylic fabric with spandex, which allows them to be stretched over different shaped frames for a more polished look. You can also choose an option in natural linen, velvet, or cotton, which will generally have a looser and more relaxed fit.
