Slipcovers are an easy and affordable solution to update furniture. Over time, wear and tear start to show on the fabrics of most chairs and sofas even when the piece is still in good shape overall. Custom slipcovers spruce up any chair, sofa or love seat, but it’s important to pick the right fabric for the look you’re going for and to take into consideration how much use each piece of furniture gets.
Solid Vs. Patterned – How To Choose
Walking in a furniture store, you might be attracted to the bold stripes of a sofa or the all-white linen sofa. But an all-white linen sofa is no match for a toddler with grimy hands. And patterned fabric from florals to plaids, can be in style one season and out the next. Solids are a safe bet when choosing fabric for a new furniture cover.
Going with solids doesn’t mean boring. Choosing bold patterned accessories and fun accent pieces including pillows and throws allows you to accessorize with current trends, but can be easily changed when it’s time for a new style.
Some pieces of furniture need bold patterns, especially when going for a specific overall look or theme. Florals, geometric patterns, plaid, striped or themed fabrics are available in slipcovers, but rather than overwhelming an entire living room set with a pattern, choosing one bold pattern for an accent piece is a good idea. Chair slipcovers in patterns nicely coordinate with a solid sofa without overdoing patterns.
Dining room chair slipcovers allow you to either get a new look completely, or replace dingy stained fabric. A great way to mix solid and patterned fabric is to choose chair slipcovers in solid fabric for the four armless versions and then choose patterned chair covers for the chairs at the head of the table.

Canopy of Curtains
Held to the side with fabric ties, pleated floor-length drapes create a canopy effect in the master bedroom.
Turn-of-the-century furnishings include painted half shutters across the bottom of the windows and a swag of striped fabric across the top.
Consider Curtain Lining
Line curtains with thick, dark fabric to cut down on glare in naturally bright rooms. Lining also helps protect drapes from dust and color fading.
Yellow and blue toile covers French doors in the dining room and windows in the kitchen, unifying the two separate spaces.
Instead of full window treatments, string a lace border along kitchen windows. It will let more light into a dark room and add vintage charm.
Vintage louvered shutters replace curtains or blinds, making the window a focal point in the red-and-white dining room.
Red print fabric hangs artfully in front of this kitchen’s small bay window.
