How to Buy Custom Slip Covers -

by: Eric Morris
Youíve decided to make over your home. Youíre ready for a whole new look. First, youíre going to change your furniture. Youíve already determined that you cannot afford to buy a whole new houseful of furniture, so youíre going with slipcovers. Next problem: you donít like any of the slipcovers you see on the rack. Somehow, none of them seem just right. Plus, your furniture is over-sized and you havenít been able to find any mass-produced covers to fit. Are you stuck? Do you have to just live with ugly furniture, or buy new furniture altogether? No, not at all. There is still one more optionócustom slipcovers.

Just as the name suggests, custom slipcovers are made to order. You specify the sizes, you choose the fabrics, and you suggest any ďspecialĒ touches you want. Yes, it will cost a bit more than the covers you can buy off the rack, but it will still be much less expensive than buying new furniture. And, when itís finished, you will have slipcovers that were made just for you.

To find someone to make your custom slipcovers, start locally. The benefits to this are numerous. Someone who is local will likely come out and take the measurements of your furniture. This way you are guaranteed to get a truly custom fit. And, if there are problems, it is easier to get them addressed if the designer is local. In addition, you will not have to pay shipping.

First, look in your local Yellow Pages. They will usually have sections for slipcovers, seamstresses, sewing, fabrics, etc. Also check at your local fabric stores. The clerks at these stores often perform sewing jobs on the side. They also often maintain lists of people looking for that type of work. Some even have a bulletin board for job postings such as this.

If all else fails and you cannot find a local to create your cover, consider doing an Internet search for custom slipcovers. Many companies across the nation will create a custom slipcover for you. Just make sure you understand the correct way to measure your furniture. Inaccurate measurements will render the custom slipcovers useless.
