Dining room chair slipcovers are excellent for decoration as they can make your chairs look brand new. A slipcover is a fixed cover that may be slipped off and on a piece of padded furniture which main function is to protect the padded furniture. Slipcovers are usually made out of cloth. Slipcovers can be slipped on and off. The slipcovers always come fresh, and may be removed for seasonal change, moving, cleaning, or storage.
What is the use of dining room chair slipcovers?
When air conditioning was not available to be used at home, in order to protect the furniture’s fabric from sweat, it was quite common to use slipcovers on padded furniture when it is in the middle of the hot months of the year. Slipcover tailors at that time offered plastic slipcovers or clear vinyl as a choice.
Can we make chair slipcovers by ourselves?
Yes, it is very easy to make. You just need to know how to wrap, drape, secure, pin, and arrange the chosen fabric until it looks perfect. First you need to iron the fabric so it will be easy to wrap around the chair. Make sure the fabric is big enough. The fabric should be evenly draped at all side of the chair. Second, you will have to secure the fabric that is on the top of the back by knotting them. Third is pinning the fabric hanging underneath the knot. It should be pinned toward where the back of the chair meets the seat. And done! You can add some decorative ribbons if you want, but if not you have finished making your very own chair slipcovers!
