First, slipcover fit. It’s important to measure the sofa before purchasing because slipcovers come in all shapes and sizes. Measure the longest part of the sofa from the outside edge of one arm to the outside edge of the other arm. One more important measurement which is the distance from the bottom of the sofa to the floor because some slipcovers contain ruffles or pleats. Make sure you note the style of a sofa while looking for slipcovers.

Second, slipcover style and color. There is something for everyone when it comes to slipcovers like a clean, modern look, a casual, relaxed feel, or a traditional style. In order to have a French country feel, a floral slipcover with a high ruffle can do the job. Why don’t you use a similar color palate for highlighted patterns?
Last but not least, slipcover fabric. Fabric often is chosen based on personal tastes. As an upholstery fabric needs to be durable, medium-weight fabrics such as twill blend, canvas, denim, or cotton duck work well for slipcovers.

Cotton: It’s for heavily used furniture, that’s why shoppers go for slipcovers made from thick cotton and it can be machine washed.
Other Fabrics: If you are looking for fitted look, go for stretchy fabrics such as polyester or micro-suede material. These fabrics require dry cleaning.
