You don’t have to have a coastal home to channel that signature casual elegance into your home decor. One of the easiest and most practical ways to change the look of your living room is to add white slipcovers. The white slipcover look is endlessly versatile and can work with both contemporary and more traditional interior design. Read on for more information on decorating with slipcovers.

Aren’t white slip covers impractical?

While the thought of all white in the living room may be sending chills down the spines of those of you with children, white slipcovers can actually be quite practical. If a spill or stain occurs, you can simply remove the slipcover for stain treatment and laundering. In fact, the ability to regularly clean them is a big selling point for many people, especially pet owners.

Choosing the right style of slipcover

What type of slipcovers should you choose? The answer depends on the style of your existing furnishings and decor. For laid-back, beach cottage style, choose breezy linen slipcovers.

If clean and contemporary is more your style, a simple, structured shape might be perfect for your furnishings.

However, if you  favor a more traditional style, you might want to go with a more tailored look to perfectly match your furnishings and show off their shapes. Slipcovers that allow the legs of the furniture to show can give a more formal look. You may also want to consider slipcovers with piping or ribbon-tie closures for a more distinctive look.
