White Slipcovers for Pure Practicality

Many people would regard a white couch as an impractical choice, and if it’s an upholstered version, they’d be correct: The bad snow-hued couch will probably seem dingy ahead of its time. However, if this couch has a slipcover in a machine-washable cloth, it may be the most practical choice whatsoever.

That’s correct, a white couch can be simple to maintain.

Fans of white slipcovers know that white is secretly simple to keep pristine. As Shabby Chic founder Rachel Ashwell once told Victoria magazine,”White denim is great if your kids are young, and as they age you can switch to white linen. White is always good, as it could be bleached.” That’s correct, the not-so-secret weapon is bleach.

Whether you acquire a piece of furniture using a white slipcover or you add you to an older piece, a white slipcover is a traditional look that spans many decorating styles. Slipcovers are not just for the couch either: Dining room chairs, headboards and other upholstered pieces may also benefit from a slipcover. Here are 12 rooms to inspire you to offer white slipcovers a go.
