Plumbs top 5 reasons to buy loose covers

Published by Emma Day in
One of the easiest ways to update the look of your living room without having to spend money on new furniture is to buy loose covers. Here are our top 5 reasons why furniture covers can make your life so much easier and breathe new life into your existing furniture.

1)      No need to buy new furniture

As Mr Osbourne announces his much awaited budget cuts, everyone is finding it more and more important to save money. And shelling out £2000 or more on a new suite is just not in everyone’s budget. With loose covers there is no need to anyway, you can extend the life of your sofa for years because the damage and stains caused by everyday life are no longer there for everyone to see!

2)      Give your living room a brand new look

Nothing can make your room look more weary than furniture that looks like it has seen better days. With loose covers you can liven up your furniture in a whole new way.  Plumbs have a wide selection of fabrics in plains, florals, stripes and mini designs in a whole array of colours. With everything from classic to contemporary, you’ll be able to find the perfect fabric, which will instantly breathe life into your living room.

Loose covers also enable you to match up all your mismatched furniture. I’ve collected different pieces of furniture over time and therefore they all have a different ‘look’. You may have bought a recliner one year and then a sofa a year or two later and they just don’t match. Loose covers mean that you can now match all of these odd pieces together.

3)      Protect your furniture from everyday mishaps

If you have children, pets or have witnessed the dangers of red wine then you’ll know that accidents tend to happen. Drinks will be spilled, food will be dropped and furniture will look tired after being jumped or slumped on by children and teenagers. By using loose covers you can protect your original, and often expensive furniture from these everyday mishaps. This ties in nicely with point 4…

4)      Easy to care for

This is one of the big reason why people purchase loose furniture covers, they are just so easy to care for. When they become dirty (just see the above!) you simply put them in your washing machine and they will come out looking as good as new. It’s that easy!

5)      Help protect the Environment

By choosing to buy loose furniture covers and not a new sofa, you are saving your current furniture from landfill. Not only that, but all of Plumbs products, be that loose covers, curtains or reupholstery are made in the UK with many of the fabrics being locally sourced too.

These are Plumbs top 5 reasons for using loose covers, we would love to hear yours if you have any!
