Slipcovers may bring to mind visions of your grandmother's parlor, done up in florals and plastic slipcovers, but today's modern covers for recliners are much different.
There are so many versatile recliner covers on today's market, you're sure to find one that perfectly matches your expectations, aesthetic, and budget. There are two different types of recliner covers available for consumers -- ones that entirely cover the chair and others that partially cover high traffic areas.
Here are seven unique reasons to buy a slipcover for your recliner to make sure you're buying the right one for your needs and space.
1. Hides Wear and Tear
Maybe your recliner is well-loved and fits your body perfectly but is also showing wear and tear from plenty of use. A recliner cover can make your favorite chair feel like new.
Perhaps your recliner is a hand-me-down, and you want it to feel more like your own. Choosing a customizable recliner cover for your new acquisition stamps your own identity on it instead of the original owner.
2. Matches New Drapes or Rug
Many interior designers weave a few colors or themes throughout a house to create a seamless feeling. One way to accomplish this polished look is by matching drapes to rugs and upholstered furniture.
If that feels too matchy-matchy, try centering on one color in all elements of your décor. An easy way to create this pulled-together look is by purchasing a recliner cover in a color prominent in your motif.
If you feel daring, playing with patterns is always fun. If you have floral elsewhere in the room, choose a cover with a smaller floral print and similar color palette to echo that theme.
On the other hand, if you would like to subdue a loud color scheme or dizzying pattern, you can use a recliner cover that is faux leather, giving the chair a sleek, modern aura.
