The Benefits of Choosing a Loose Cover Instead Of a New Sofa

With all of the use that a family sofa gets on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that they eventually begin to show a few signs of wear and tear.

If your family sofa is starting to look a little on the worn side, you may well be considering buying a brand new piece, but have you thought about simply covering your existing upholstery with a loose sofa cover instead? If not, here are just a few reasons why a loose cover may be a much better solution than splashing the cash on brand new furniture.


When it comes to interior design, the old saying ‘a change is as good as a rest’ is very true. Giving your living room, bedroom, kitchen or bathroom a facelift can make a huge difference to how your home looks and feels and transform it into the des res you’ve always dreamed of.

In the living room, the easiest way to change the look of the space is to change the sofa. With a loose sofa cover you can easily alter the colour or pattern of your upholstery, transforming how your living room looks in moments.


Environmentally friendly

Using a loose cover to transform your sofa instead of buying a brand new one is also good for the environment. It helps to prevent landfill and negates the need for a new piece of furniture to be manufactured.

Perfect for the eco-conscious consumer, loose covers can also extend the life of your current sofa by protecting the sofa’s surface and making general upkeep far easier.



Easy to clean

If you’ve got pets or young children, you’ll probably know just how quickly a sofa can become dirty. Thankfully, loose covers make cleaning your sofa easier than ever.

Simply pop them in the washing machine or take them down to your local dry cleaners and keep your sofa looking good as new, month after month. This also works for any damage made to your sofa; should the loose cover become burnt, stained or torn, you can easily replace it with a new cover.



Choosing loose covers

So, next time your family settee is in need of a little TLC, why not look for loose covers to give it the love and attention it deserves? You won’t regret it!
