How to cover a torn sofa: 3 simple solutions

So it happened, your sofa got torn. Either the dog bit it, the cat scratched it or something else happened, but now it’s an eyesore. Every time you come into the room, you see the torn in the sofa. As you probably already know, it does not go well with the interior of any room.

In this article, we want to show you three ways to cover a torn sofa or to solve the issue of your damaged sofa.

#1 - Get rid of the couch completely and buy a new couch

This can be a great solution, but will end up costing thousands and you might be throwing away a great couch. There’s also the question of how you’ll get rid of it in the first place? Who wants to buy a torn couch anyway? You’ll probably end up getting much less for it than it’s worth.

There are tons of stores that sell couches, so finding a new one won't be difficult.

#2 - Get your couch reupholstered

Again, this might turn into a fairly expensive and time consuming solution. Keep in mind, we’re not bashing reupholstery. There are businesses in South Africa that do great work and can give your couch an amazing facelift.

If you have some DIY skills and the necessary tools, you could even do the job yourself. You’ll also need a sewing machine or pay someone to do it for you. Keep in mind that if you try to do it on your own, you might need a helping hand from a partner or a friend, but it can be done.

There are tons of videos on YouTube that show you how to reupholster a couch like this one.

#3 - Use a sofa cover

All you have to do is to get a sofa cover from our online store, Crelo Couch Covers! Here’s a cover from our nature range called "green wilderness".
