Slipcover vs. Reupholstering
MyHomeIdeas (MHI): When is it better to slipcover a piece of furniture rather than have it reupholstered?
Sheri Cori (SC): A custom slipcover usually costs about the same price as reupholstering. So the choice is up to you. If you have children or pets, slipcovers are great because they can be washed. Also, because a slipcover can easily be removed, you can take it off and enjoy the piece in its original fabric at any time.
