Sofa covers are an important part of the home decor, not only functional but also making a statement. It is important to buy only the best sofa covers, which will give you value for money. This post will help you in learning some of the factors you must consider when buying sofa covers.

If you have an old sofa, it may be covered with worn, faded fabric. Replacing a worn-out sofa is a large expense. You don't have to replace your sofa to give it a whole new look. You can buy a cover for it, make it look new again and transform it into something beautiful with a new loose sofa cover.

2. Fabric and colour choice

Taking time to choose the right sofa covers for you is crucial. There are many different kinds of sofa covers on the market. They come in a variety of types each in all sorts of colours, patterns, materials and fabrics. It is important that you pick a sofa cover that complements your home, works with your decor and will not fade or discolour in the sun. If you want to avoid the cost of replacing your sofa every few years, then choosing a good quality fabric that will last is key. There are two main types of fabric that sofa covers are made from: natural fibres and synthetic fibres. Natural fibre fabrics are made from materials like cotton, wool, hemp and silk. Synthetic fibre fabrics are made from man made non-natural fibres such as polyester, acrylic, nylon and viscose.

When choosing a sofa cover you must take into consideration what kind of material you want it to be made out of. There is no one material that is better than the other. It really comes down to personal preference. The main difference between natural and synthetic fabrics is the way they feel. Natural fibre fabrics are generally more comfortable, have more elasticity and are able to be dyed in many different colours. On the other hand, synthetic fabrics are less expensive, easier to care for and are less likely to shrink or fade.

You can get your sofa covers in almost any colour or pattern imaginable. Some common colours for sofa covers are red, beige, brown, blue and black. If you are looking for a specific colour then reach out to a member of our friendly sales team to discuss your requirements.

3. Cushion covers for your sofa

Can't decide on just one fabric? Use scatters in a fabric which compliments your loose covers. Or if you want to spice things up a little use a contrasting fabric for your cushion covers.

Like sofa covers you can find a wide range of fabrics for your cushion covers are available in a wide range of fabrics. You may even have a wider selection of fabrics as scatter cushions can be made up in decorative fabrics rather than upholstery fabrics.

4. How to clean sofa covers

Loose sofa covers can sometimes be a little easier to maintain than upholstered furniture.

Most fabric sofa covers will have a protective coating applied during the manufacturing process. This is designed to protect the fabric while it is in storage, en route to your home and in use. It is important that this coating is not harmed during cleaning, so we recommend that you do not use any type of chemical or solvent based cleaner on your sofa covers. Instead opt for warm water and a cloth, or a specialist dry cleaning solvent if necessary.

Some fabrics are even machine washable. Make sure you check the manufacturers instructions and review any cleaning/care advice given with the fabric. We've also written a blog post on how to care for your loose sofa covers the eco-friendly way, check it out here.
