Fabric Chair Covers – Add a Beautiful Look

8th January 2010

Fabric chair covers are becoming a new rage for designers. They can add a beautiful new look to any room or office. The fabric can allow for the original look to be retained and renewed or the fabric can be something new and vibrant.

When choosing a cover it is important the look and feel of the cover is natural and well-fitting. There is a special blend that the fabric must take on so that it maintains the structure of the chair it is being used on.

If a cover is ill-fitting it can lead to a multitude of problems such as uneven lines and sagging around the bottom of the chair. Many people take on the resurfacing of chairs by reupholstering the whole thing. This method can get quite expensive. What people do not know is that the same look can be accomplished using fabric chair covers at a fraction of the cost!

An important thing to remember when purchasing chair covers is the functionality of the chair itself. The chair needs to be in good sitting condition overall for the chair cover to work properly. However if your chairs are in need of a facelift and are structurally sound then purchasing a cover is the best way to get a new lease on life for those chairs.

The options for covering a chair are endless. The fabrics, colours and designs are almost unending. Just take a look in one of the extensive catalogs that you can find and you will see that the answers to your design problems are just a simple chair cover purchase away.

Once you have picked out the fabric, texture, colour and design of your cover you can move on to making sure that the covers will fit your budget and more importantly your chair!  Fabric chair covers can be tailored to your specific needs and this may cost a bit more but for the right look you should be willing to go this route.

When deciding where to purchase your chair covers there are basically two options: a retailer or an independent shop. The independent shops can cost a little more but the tailored work is custom and you get what you pay for. However, the retailer can provide a beautiful look at a cheaper price and just like purchasing anything else you need to decide what your budget is before diving headfirst into it.

Chairs that have faded over time are in need of a chair cover. These chairs are often times great for sitting but can become an eyesore if left unattended. Rather than purchasing new chairs or getting the older chair reupholstered you can purchase a cover and bring those chairs back to life quickly. Fabric chair covers are now becoming a favourite amongst designers as they have many great qualities:

● Affordable
● Beautiful and Elegant
● Can Be Fitted
● Can Be Customized To Match Any Scenery
● Quick (only takes a few minutes)
● With A Multitude Of Options

Often time’s chairs are covered at the same time making an ordinary room look extraordinary. The pricing of doing something like this is a lot less expensive then trying to purchase all new furniture and having it put in place. For a fraction of the cost a whole room can be changed and no moving is necessary. 

At this point the only choices to make are what kind of covers are you looking for and how do you want them to fit? Custom fitted fabric chair covers are beautiful and can last for years to come.
