Slipcover style at Elegant ChangesLast week, we talked about Style at Home’s recent article on slipcovers and what you should think about before you buy. We gave you a list of tips you can find right here.

This week, we’re going to go over some slipcover style secrets that Style at Home suggests. Keep this slipcover list handy – we’ve got tips you’ll be able to use now and later!

• Opt for heavy fabrics, such as linen. These fabrics make for great slipcovers as they stay in place and drop nicely.

• Inverted kick pleats for the skirt in a contrasting colour give your slipcover a cool, unique embellishment that will have visitors take notice.

• To get the wrinkles out of your slipcover, throw it in the dryer with damp tea towel for a few minutes. A great idea when company is coming over and you need the house to look its best!

• For a clean, modern look that looks just like upholstery, choose a tight-fitting slipcover with minimal detailing and no skirt.

• Give your room a fresh, new look my switching slipcovers seasonally.
