Dining Chair Seat Pad Covers - Chair covers can have a tired looking old bit of furniture and breathe new life into it. Chair covers are a cost effective solution 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 any type of chair from dining room chairs to recliners. And that means you must know what type of chair you are buying the chair covers for before you begin to shop.
In order to get covers that can fit your furniture correctly you need to get a measuring tape to measure the bit of furniture with. In order to get the fit that is right you may need to take several measurements. 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 ground. When measuring the floor height, you do not need to include the height of the back of the chair.
You'll need to measure the piece. The arms of the piece may increase the width of the cover by several inches so take this into account when measuring. You must measure the height of the chair back. The seat of the piece will not be several inches taller than the back of the chair and you may need to know how tall it is.
If you are shopping the type of cover will make a difference also. Some covers are made to be draped over the chair like a blanket while others are created to fit the contours of the chair. You need to look into the material that the covers are made from. Some materials have more give to them than others do. Which means that some materials will stretch a little and cover something larger than they're. Read the labels to see if the material the cover you have chosen is made of has a high level of elasticity.
