Futon Slip Covers Protect While Adding A Decorative Designers Touch!
Futon slip covers do two things. Number one and most importantly, they protect your futon mattress from wear and tear. Number two is the slip cover can give your room a personal touch by matching with your room's color scheme and adding a decorative touch giving it some character. If your room already has enough character, then maybe a simpler, more neutral futon slip cover would suffice.
There are many options when it comes to protecting your futon mattress with a futon cover. The fabrics available are almost endless, from leather or suede offering a rich look, to denim for a more rugged appearance. Perhaps you would like a floral or solid color for a more contemporary look. Each provides a unique design and look as well as durability and protection.
What is great about these slip covers is that they are easily and quickly changeable. If you need them to be washed or dry cleaned, simply unzip or unbutton them and off to the cleaners they go returning fresh and clean - try that with a conventional sofa! Some slip covers can even be thrown in the regular wash; a housewife's dream!
A concern people have is the bunching up of the material in some sections, especially where the futon folds. Depending on the material, it will bunch up slightly but is easily straightened out by simply flattening the futon mattress and stretching out the slip cover. But this is not a constant problem and only has to be dealt with occasionally.
A futon slip cover also provides a room with fashion and style. You have the option of inter-changing different covers depending on the season or mood you are in or even to match new pillows you've bought. Want to repaint your room to give it a fresh new look and you don't want to to buy a new sofa? Simply change the slip cover to match.
If it is summer time and you want a light weight material to keep things cool, choose a soft cotton material. When it is winter and you need a warm cozy feeling when relaxing, you can chose a sheepskin slip-on. The choices are endless and that's what makes futon mattress such a great thing to own.
Slip covers for futons are truly diverse in giving protection and a fashionable, stylish look to suit your home. The options are virtually endless and relatively inexpensive. Shop online for excellent prices and a wide variety of slip covers that can be delivered right to your front door!
