A chaise lounge chair is a wonderful piece of furniture that provides a place for someone to kick back and relax while watching TV, reading or socializing with friends and family. Chaise lounge chairs are usually purchased as a single piece or can be part of a larger set of matching furniture. Because this lounge chair is such a unique furniture item to have in your home, you may want to protect the original fabric from normal wear and tear. This is why it’s a great option to purchase a chaise lounge slipcover that can be placed over the chair to act as an extra layer of protection.
There are two types of chaise lounge slipcovers – indoor and outdoor. Most indoor lounge chairs will have a much more formal design as it is meant to be a cushy seat. When you are looking for indoor covers, you will need to find a company that specifically makes these types of covers. There are some companies that specialize in making covers for furniture, and there are furniture companies that actually sell chaise lounge slipcovers as options for their customers who purchase an indoor lounge chair. Indoor options are made of fabric and can come in vibrant colors such as red, blue, and green or neutral shades like beige, white and khaki. If you really want to spice up your room, you could find a slipcover in a bold pattern that compliments the other furniture, yet adds interest to the decor.
There are slipcovers made for outdoor chaise lounge chairs as well. The outdoor lounger is usually of a more casual design. You’ll normally see an outdoor chaise lounge chair close to a pool or on a patio in a backyard area. One of reasons many people look for a chaise lounge slipcover for an outdoor chair is protection from the elements. Most likely your outdoor chair is going to stay outside during the warm month. This exposes the chair to wind, rain and intense heat. To keep the lounge chair from deteriorating, you can get an outdoor slipcover that will fit nicely around this type of furniture. Most outdoor slipcovers are made from weather resistant materials and can quickly be placed over the chair when needed.
When you are researching specific colors and patterns for a chaise lounge slipcover, one thing you’ll notice is that it is much easier to find slipcovers for the outdoor style of lounger than an indoor lounge chair. This can be a bit disappointing, especially if you have your heart set on a specific color choice that can match all of your other furniture. Often what happens is that you can find the perfect slipcover for the couch, loveseat and sitting chair, but when you look for a matching cover for the lounge seat, it’s often a fruitless quest. This is why you should consider finding a solid or print color that is close to what you want, without it having to be an exact match.
The lounge chair can become an interesting focal point in the room.
Another option you have is to hire a seamstress, or someone you know who is good at sewing, and have them make you a custom chaise lounge slipcover. This may be the best way to go if you simply can’t find the color choice you desire.
