Furniture is crucial part of any interior because it not only brings together a space, making it look aesthetically pleasing, but also provides a functional aspect o the room, because furniture allows us to have a place to sit and places to put stuff. However, often furniture tends to deteriorate the more we use them, which is why only one of the reasons why you should thing about getting furniture covers.
1. Protection for your furniture
As I already mentioned probably the main reason to get furniture covers is to provide protection to your furniture. Weather you are getting furniture covers for your indoors pieces or patio desks and chairs, the covers will help you keep your furniture looking new longer, as well as keep the furniture from braking or damaging due to weather for outdoors furniture and wear and tear for indoors pieces. I would especially recommend protective covers for investment pieces, like expensive sofas or dining desks, so you don’t have to restore the costly pieces just after a few years of use.
2. If you ever want to resale
Another big reason, why you should thing about some sort of furniture coves is to keep your furniture resale price high. This especially goes for expensive pieces and vintage furniture, but it can also apply to more trendy pieces or ones you purchased for specific space. Often people tend to purchase furniture with one room or house in mind, and then once they move, they sell their old furniture and buy new pieces. And if that is your case or you just want to be cautions with the value of your furniture, buy some type of furniture covers for example slipcovers, as they will allow you to increase the price of your furniture for up to 40% than it would if you wouldn’t have covers on the furniture while you were using it.
3. If you own pets
And the last reason to buy furniture covers is pet hair. Those who own dogs and cats or even other animals know how fast the hairs of your animals get on everything in your house, on your clothing and, yes, also on your furniture. So a cover can prevent that from happening, letting your clean your furniture less often. Doesn’t that sound good? On top of that cats often like to scratch the ends of a sofa or a chair, which can also be prevented by a thicker furniture cover , because the cats nails won’t be able to go through that and therefore your pet won’t be able to ruin your pieces. And lastly those who have had puppies, kittens or other young animals know how young animals are prone of having accidents and how hard it is to afterwards clean the pee and the smell that accompanies it from a sofa. So furniture covers will make sure that your furniture is protected against unwanted smells and liquids, making your life that much easier.
