Safe from Spills 

Life is messy, but who says your furniture needs to be? If your living room couch has seen better days, or more after-school snacks than it should, slipping on a cover is a great way to protect the material. (But if furniture covers just aren’t your thing, here are some stain-resistant living room sets.)

Tons of Versatility

Interested in changing up your living room décor? With a slipcover, you can change the color and texture of your couch without the financial commitment of purchasing a new one - and it only takes a couple of minutes to have a completely new look. And slipcovers aren’t only for couches! You can also use them on your dining room chairs to add an elegant touch.

Keep It Pet Proof

Furniture covers make it easy to keep unwanted pet hair, dandruff and slobber off of your couch, especially if your four-legged friend likes to climb up on your living room furniture. If your pet sheds a ton, using furniture covers will help prolong the life of your couch. Plus, it’s super easy to take off the cover and throw it in the wash.
