The hottest trends in upholstered furniture are slipcovered sofas. Gone are the days of having fabric on your sofa that you cannot wash without professional help. Today is the most amazing sofas with tightly fitted slipcovers that you cannot even tell they are a sofa slipcover. Here are my top 5 choices in affordable slipcover sofas with a sofa cover.
What are Slipcovered Sofas
Let me explain exactly what are slipcovered sofas compared to what we used to do with slipcovers.
In today's market, you can purchase a sofa frame and then select a tailored slipcover that is specifically designed for that sofa. Usually, there are three or more sofa cover colors.
Typically you select the sofa frame and then the color and all you do is slip the cover of the sofa when you get it home. The cover fits like a glove until you cannot even tell it has a slipcover.
In the old days, you would go to the store and purchase a slipcover that basically was one size fits all. After placing it on the couch it didn't fit like a glove and you would have to tuck it and pull it daily to fit neatly again.

Affordable Slipcovered Sofas
Now let's talk about what I mean by affordable slipcovered sofas. Today there are loads of slipcover sofas on the market but many are over one thousand dollars. In this post, I searched and did research on slipcovered sofas under a thousand.
Here are my top choices and notes about which ones I have experience with and others I found good reviews.
I found it a little challenging to find slipcovered sofas under one thousand dollars. However, in the process of looking for affordable sofas with covers, I found a good slipcovered sofa option over a thousand.
LL Bean had several great choices. I had the opportunity to try them out and found them all comfortable. My favorite is the Sunbrella slipcovered sofa model. It reminds me of the Ikea Ektorp but much more comfortable.
One of my favorite slipcover sofas over a thousand is a Pottery Barn sofa. I have a comparison of it and the Ikea sofa in another post called Best Slipcover Sofa from Pottery Barn to Ikea. This post is a first-hand experience of the two pieces so you can decide if you want to pay a little more for the Pottery Barn.
These affordable slipcover sofas are great for moving to college, young couples, families or just about any age. What makes them perfect is the ability to wash the covers.
Washing the covers is very easy but there are a few tips and tricks. We will get into those details in a coming post.
