Lazy Boy Recliners » Recliner Slipcovers

With proper maintenance your Lazy Boy Recliner can last several years. As a result, you may want to update its look if you redecorate the room or replace your other furniture. Recliner slipcovers are an easy way to rejuvenate your lazy boy recliner.

Most recliner slipcovers come in one piece and four piece designs and are usually designed for the lever installed on the right hand side and a continuous leg rest. The four piece design includes separate pieces for the back, each of the two arms and one piece that covers the seat and the continuous leg rest. The SureFit slipcovers are made of stretch and recover material and include a pocket for magazines, remote control, etc. on the left hand side.

The slipcovers can come in medium and large sizes. A medium size recliner slipcover will fit a recliner that measures 82 to 88 inches around the entire back at about shoulder height. If your recliner measures more than this then you should order the large slipcover.

If the padding material in your recliner is wearing a bit thin or the arms are hard you can add a layer or two of polyester batting, which you can find at a craft or fabric store, over the arms before installing the slipcover. If you are putting a slipcover on a leather recliner then you may want to add some non-skid rug pad material, which you can find at many home stores, between the leather surface and the slipcover. This will help ensure that your slipcover stays in place.

Recliner slipcovers come in many colors and materials like faux suede, chenille and soft weave canvas. Most use an upholstery weight material combined with spandex to allow the material to stretch and recover as required to give you a smooth, fitted look.

To remove wrinkles from your slipcover, simply remove it and place it in the dryer on a low heat setting along with a damp hand towel. After a few minutes remove the slipcover and put it back on your recliner. The result should be a smooth looking, wrinkle-free cover.

Whether you want to protect your new lazy boy recliner from spills or bring an older recliner back to life, recliner slipcovers are an excellent, inexpensive way to protect and rejuvenate your investment.
