Usually, winter weather isn’t a problem for furniture and accessories displayed inside the home. While snow, rain, and winter storms can cause damage to exterior features and furniture used in outdoor spaces, indoor items are typically safe even during the coldest months. Still, it’s worth considering how changing seasons might affect indoor furniture in more subtle and unexpected ways. Some delicate furniture can be sensitive to shifts in temperature. Other items might simply be located in prime spots to bear the brunt of any snow or mud tracked in on boots, cold weather gear, or other clothing. In both cases, protecting furniture can mean the difference between a season of enjoyable use and early repairs or replacement. Slipcovers are a smart, cost-effective way to get the most value possible from any furniture item.
Beyond the physical protection they offer for furniture frames as well as cushions or mattresses, slipcovers have a high degree of aesthetic appeal. Customized to match a wide variety of patterns and styles, these accessories can highlight understated elements of a room’s decor or introduce completely new themes into an existing space. Savvy decorators can combine the visual potential of a new slipcover with the protective benefits to ensure success this winter in any interior space.
