New chair covers are a great way to add a fresh look to a room. No matter if you are renting them or looking for a more permanent change, chair covers are a small change that can make a big difference. You do not have to spend a fortune on them and the only limit on your chair covering possibilities is your imagination.

Fabric Remnants

Fabric remnants are available for purchase at any fabric store. Fabric remnants are just that; they are the remaining pieces of fabric that cannot be sold at full price so they are sold at discount prices. The remnants come in any fabric, print or size you can imagine and, when you visit a fabric store, you can ask specifically to see the fabric remnants on hand which makes this a quick and inexpensive way to acquire chair covers. With a little work, you can cover any chair you would like with one large remnant or a combination of a few smaller ones.

Rent Chair Covers

Perhaps you need a large number of chair covers or are looking for a temporary inexpensive change; rented chair covers may be the best option for you. Renting chair covers can cost as little as a few dollars each if rented from websites like Quality Chair Covers or Chair Linen. Your total cost may vary and depends on the number of covers and the amount of time you will be using them, but they are an inexpensive way to add a fresh look to a chair and typically come with special touches, such as a bow or a sash.

Bed Linens

Consider covering a chair with bed linens. This option is the least expensive of all because you can choose to use sheets or blankets you already own. If you do want to purchase new linens to cover your chair, it can be done fairly cheaply by purchasing a single flat sheet or mid-sized blanket. Lay it over a chair, tie it up and tuck in your loose ends. With bed linens, you have the flexibility of changing your mind as often as you like. It is as simple as you going to the linen closet for a change. This option is both a convenient and inexpensive one.


Slipcovers are available in standards sizes that fit most popular pieces of furniture. They range in price, but the variety of commercially made slipcovers is endless. In some cases, if you provide the dimensions of the chair you would like to cover, you can order a custom chair cover. Visit the Todo Es website for inexpensive custom slipcover ideas. Slipcovers are the most popular chair cover idea because they provide a more precise fit for any chair you would like to cover and are available in a wide variety of colours and types of fabric.
