Chairs can be pretty expensive. Whether they are casual, everyday chairs or special-occasion dining room chairs, the cost can be high. If you need chairs in a new look but you don't want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars, consider chair slipcovers instead.

Chair slipcovers are fabric that is specially cut and sewn to fit over your existing chairs. This effectively changes the entire look of your chairs -- and your room -- at a greatly reduced price. In fact, the cost of a chair cover is a mere fraction of the cost of a new chair.

Chair slipcovers are available for virtually any standard, traditional type of chair. Many companies even offer slipcovers for wing-back chairs. Wing chair slipcovers are available at many department stores and online outlets.

Keep in mind that chairs with simple shapes and straight lines are easier to cover. If your chair is oddly shaped or an unusual size, you might have to have a cover custom-made?or consider making it yourself.

When buying a slipcover, choose your fabric carefully. You need a fabric that is sturdy enough to stand up to everyday use. Otherwise, the fabric will fade, wear, or tear quickly and you will need a new cover very quickly. Linen, chintz, denim, canvas, and ticking are all sturdy fabrics and make excellent candidates for slipcovers. Some new slipcovers are made of a special fabric that stretches for easier installation and a near-custom fit. This material is also wrinkle-free.

Many companies who offer chair slipcovers also offer couch and loveseat slipcovers. This allows you to change the look of all of your furniture for a well-coordinated look. You will have a high-style home without the high prices.

With chair slipcovers, you can redecorate your home at a fraction of the cost of buying new furniture.
