Sofa slip covers – to buy or not to buy?
Most homeowners do not take to the idea of buying sofa slip covers too well. This is probably because the idea of a slip cover appears to be more of a ‘cover up’, especially if the upholstery of sofa or chair in question is old and worn. Even though a slip cover may hide all of these eyesores you know that they still exist. However, once you have finished compiling your quotes for the re-upholstering job at hand, buying sofa slip covers might not look so bad after all!
