Choosing Sofa Cover Fabric
When choosing a sofa cover fabric, consider the following considerations: ease of care and durability. A tight-woven fabric is less likely to attract pet hair and claws. A dark color is less likely to show stains or dirt, but it can match pet hair. Fabric that wrinkles easily is also less durable. A polyester cotton blend combines the benefits of both types of fibers. A polyester cotton blend has the same qualities as pure cotton, but is slightly more resistant to stains.
A microfiber sofa cover is made of a polyester/nylon blend. This material has ultra-thin fibers to ensure that the fabric is durable and resistant to dust and liquid spills. It also looks great draped over the couch, but doesn't grip as well as other styles. Those with children will appreciate the durability of a microfiber fabric. Moreover, it can be easily cleaned with a neutral detergent and at thirty degrees.
If you plan on using your sofa frequently, you may want to buy a patterned sofa cover. The patterned cover helps to hide spills better. But you may grow tired of it, and you'll want to invest in a plainer set in case you need a replacement cover. It's best to opt for light-coloured covers. These types of covers are also washable and are an affordable way to update your furniture.
