Rocking Chair Pillow Covers - Chair covers breathe new life into it and can take a tired looking old bit of furniture. Chair covers are a cost effective way to refresh the look of your furniture, cover the old pieces which are looking worn up, and give you a stylish new decor. Chair covers can be purchased to fit almost any type of chair from dining room chairs. So that you have to know what type of chair you're buying the chair covers for before you begin to shop.
So that you can get covers that will fit your furniture you need to get a measuring tape to measure the bit of furniture with. You'll need to take several measurements to be able to get the fit that is right. You may need to measure the height of the bit of furniture. You want to know how far the seat of the chair is from the floor. When measuring the floor height you do not need to include the height of the back of the chair.
You may need to measure the width of the seat on the chair to determine how big round the cover must be. You will need to measure the piece at its widest width. The arms of the piece may increase when measuring the width of the cover by several inches so take this into consideration. The back of the chair will be several inches taller compared to the seat of the piece and you'll need to know how tall it is.
When you're shopping the type of cover will make a difference at the same time. Some covers are made to be draped over the chair just like a blanket while others are made to fit the contours of the chair. You should look to the material that the covers are made from. Some materials have more than others do, give to them. That means that some materials will stretch a little and cover something larger than they are. Read the labels to see if the material the cover you've got chosen is made of has a high level of elasticity.
