How to choose your slipcover fabric

With so many fabrics to choose from, where do you start? We know the struggle is very real, so here's what we'd do if we were you.

Consider your cats (erm, kids).

If you're a cat, dog or human parent or all three, you'll want to make sure your sofa's pretty much life-proof.

This means going for a fabric that's not just durable, but also resistant to liquid spills and scratches.

No pets or little humans to watch out for? Then ditch the tougher weaves for pure comfort with our ultra-soft fabrics that have you cozy as a clam.

Natural or human-made: Which floats your boat?

It all depends on how you plan to use your sofa (not as a trampoline, hopefully).

If you're a big fan of napping and *ahem* reading like we are, you'll do really well with a natural, breathable fabric like pure cotton and linen.

Need something a little more um, shall we say...enduring? Then you're better off with a synthetic blend with a tighter, smoother and less liquid-absorbent weave like polyester or leather.

What’s the point in buying a sofa slipcover — or any piece of furniture — without having a little bit of fun with the way it magically transforms your space?

Now’s the time to let your inner interior designer run free. Some questions to consider asking yourself:“Is my space warm, neutral or just too cool for school?”; “Do I want everything to be matchy-matchy or make eyeballs pop with contrast?”; “Will this colour match my dog’s fur perfectly?”.

You know, stuff like that.

Pure Linen

Soft, shabby and chic all at the same time, this is the fabric you go for when you want your sofa to look like it just got out of bed but still hot (in a classy kind of way, naturally).

Performance Blend

This baby has spills rolling right off it to keep embarrassing stains from happening so you’ll never have to worry about judgement from your eagle-eyed in-laws. We like.

Claw-Proof Velvet

If you’ve got four-legged kids with sharp claws at home, you’ll need to find a way to keep them from ripping your sofa to shreds. And because this is fabric that claws can’t sink into, it’s practically claw-proof nirvana.

Leather

Snug, sleek and sexy, this is the ultimate sofa upgrade if you’ve got guests to impress, or just want a leather sofa but don’t want to actually buy one (decorating cheat tip alert!).
