Benefits of using a couch cover
One of the most popular furniture pieces in almost any house, in terms of usage, is the living room couch. It's where the kids spend their Saturday mornings while devouring cereals and cartoons. It's where you and the hubby watch your late-night movies, and where your pets spend their dog day afternoons.
Whether you’re prolonging your furniture’s lifecycle or looking for ways to keep it looking new, couch covers are your best friend.
A couch cover, or a slipcover, is a protective fitted jacket, typically made from cloth that can be easily slipped on or off upholstered furniture. It is often used to preserve the quality of your couch, but it can moonlight as a decorative add-on as well.
Similar fittings have been around since medieval Europe. They were used to keep dust away from fancy furniture in rooms that were rarely used. They were draped over furniture to protect them from the sun, humidity, dirt, insects, and rats.
Couch covers come in a variety of different types. Clear vinyl or plastic was once used as covers. However, it does not look stylish at all! Also, the slippery nature of these materials makes it difficult to sit on and even sticky on a warm day.
Updated production methods, and furniture fabric that were easier to clean and maintain eventually contributed to its decline - thankfully!
