Choosing Slipcovers for Recliners

April 23rd, 2009 in Recliner Slipcovers /

Slipcovers are beneficial for homeowners and decorators that have children or pets within the home that may increase the wear and tear that comes with a lazy boy recliner.

A slipcover can also be used to completely change the appearance of the furniture. Many consumers use a slipcover to cover the piece and change the appearance rather than making the decision to replace the entire piece of furniture; this is a great way to save money within the household. Lazy boy recliners can be fitted with a slipcover to create a whole new look within the room, rather than having to replace the popular chair that becomes more comfortable with time.

What are some ways that you can choose a slipcover for the lazy boy recliners? Use these methods to find a slipcover that is right for you:

· Choose a slipcover that can accent the décor within the room where the recliner is being placed. This could be similar fabric, or a color or pattern which will go with the other pieces in the room.

· Use samples of fabric that can be brought home to be compared with other fabrics and décor within the room. This way, the slipcover is not ordered or custom made in time for the owner to realize the fabric does not match the décor in the room.

· Choose a durable fabric if you are trying to protect the fabric from pets and children within the home. Some of the most durable fabrics that can be used to cover lazy boy recliners include 100% cotton or canvas.

Slipcovers are available for popular models, but as well, slipcovers can be custom created for specific pieces of furniture that are tailored to fit the furniture snugly, creating the appearance of a newly upholstered piece, rather than a piece of furniture that has been fitted with a slipcover.

    I have a “lady size” LazyBoy recliner and have been unable to find a slipcover for it–usual ones are way,way to big. My chair is about 15 years old but true to Lazy Boy quality–it is still in excellent shape–the upholstery is just looking worn. Desperat for slipcover that fits.
    Please advise
    Thanks.
