Long viewed as part of an easy room makeover, slipcovers offer home decorators a way to unify furniture that is mismatched in color and style.

According to Fabrics.net, slipcovers with straight or pleated skirts can hide dated wooden sofa legs and rejuvenate wooden-armed sofas by wrapping foam around the arms before adding the slipcover. For a tailored look, stretch covers provide a smooth, form-fitting look.

Taking this quick-change approach also allows homeowners and apartment dwellers to change the look of the homes seasonally. "Changing your slipcovers according to the season or the occasion is a simple but effective way to introduce different colors into your home décor, without the expense or work involved in reupholstery," states the website.

Renters can spruce up the look of neutral wall colors and flooring and design a room that reflects their personal style by finding slipcovers that give them a choice of bold colors and patterns personalized to their individual style.

Soft sheer shades can be coordinated with the textures and colors chosen for a slipcover ensemble for sofas, side chairs, ottomans and even dining room seating. They are durable, have an understated look that fits many types of décor and bring filtered light into a room.
