180 days after purchase

Bed Bath & Beyond is ubiquitous - that means you can find them just about everywhere. So, you're probably familiar with the fact that their products are all over the spectrum, with basics you need for your home and novel gadgets and tools you never knew you needed. Saw it on TV? It's probably sold there. Spotted it at your friend's house? You guessed it, Bed Bath & Beyond likely has it too.

Great range of slipcovers

The selection of slipcovers at this store is pretty good, with just under 500 options listed in their online store. While you won't see any slipcovers on the luxury end of the scale, you'll still see a good range of colors, styles and price points.

Out of stock issues

One tricky bit with Bed Bath & Beyond is their product availability. We spotted several slipcovers that we liked, only to be disappointed when we clicked on them and found out they were out of stock. You can save yourself some grief by clicking where it says, "change availability". There, we found that out of nearly 450 slipcovers in their inventory, only 300 were in stock online and 3 were available at our local store.

Those filter and sort options can also help you spend less time browsing and more time finding slipcovers that work for you. Whether you want to drill down by color, customer ratings, brand, or price, you'll save yourself some work.

Slipcover product details

Once you find a slipcover you like, the product detail page offers a more in-depth description, color options, specifications, and customer reviews. We didn't find many slipcovers with lots of customer ratings, leading us to conclude that Bed Bath & Beyond isn't selling thousands of slipcovers every month.

Price match promise

This store offers a price match promise, so if you happen to spot your favorite slipcover at another store, chances are good that you can get it for the same price with this store. Bed Bath & Beyond may also save you money with their free shipping on orders over $39.

Fantastic return policy

Where Bed Bath and Beyond truly shines is their return policy. Not only is it generous at 180 days from the date of purchase, but it also doesn't require the items to be in new/unused condition. They want you to love your slipcover (or bath towels, or frying pan, etc.), and so if it doesn't work out the way you hoped, they want to make it right for you. With something that can be as tricky to fit as a slipcover, that's a huge plus - and it's one of the main reasons we ranked this retailer higher than many of their competitors.

Risk free

Shopping for a slipcover isn't so hard, but getting one that is the right fabric and fit can take some experimenting. Bed Bath & Beyond is the only retailer we found with no penalty for taking a chance on a slipcover and deciding that it needs to go back - because their generous return policy has you covered. You may find a better selection elsewhere, but we'd bet that you'll still be interested in what Bed Bath & Beyond has to offer because of that policy alone.

Cost:

From $17.99 to $300

Free delivery on orders $45+

Returns:

180 days on new, unopened merchandise only

Home Depot is one of two home improvement stores in our review that happen to carry slipcovers. Given how many other home products this store sells, that's not surprising - and with more than 500 slipcovers to choose from Home Depot has a much bigger selection than their most similar rival in our evaluations (think big and blue).

Customer friendly website

We like how easy it is to shop the Home Depot website. You can click on the images at the top of the Slipcovers product page to go directly to the furniture, fabric, or style you like, but the easiest option is to use the filters on the left side. Select your slipcover type (arm chair, sofa, etc.), color, design, style, material, or price range, among other options, so that your results list is fine-tuned to only the slipcovers that are in line with what you think you need.

In your results list, you'll be able to see at a glance how much each slipcover costs, your color options for each style, and whether it's eligible for free delivery (on orders of $45+). Mouse over any slipcover and you'll also see if it's available for local pick-up or eligible for free ship-to-store. We also like that many of the slipcovers have ratings from customers displayed on that results page too, making it a breeze to see if a particular style is popular (or very much not!).

Large volume orders

While the prices on everyday slipcovers range from under $20 to $300, you might spot a more expensive option: the Black Chiavari Chair Cover, priced at $1,278.45. But, if you're paying attention, you'll also notice that those come in a set of 250: in other words, these are covers you might use to dress up enough chairs for a wedding reception or other more formal event.

Beyond that, the selection of slipcovers at Home Depot is neither the best nor the worst you'll find. They carry well-known brands like Serta, but most of their inventory is from Innovative Textile Solutions and QuickFit.

180 day return policy

Home Depot has a nice, long return policy of 180 days. However, their terms say that merchandise has to be in unopened condition to be eligible for a refund - so be sure that your slipcover is what you want before you open the package. On the other hand, we've had pretty good experiences with returning products ordered online to our local store for lots of reasons, even with opened packages, so you might try your luck if you get your slipcover out of the packaging and decide it's not worth keeping.

For most people, Home Depot isn't going to be the name that comes to mind when looking for slipcovers - but among big-box home improvement stores, it's actually not a bad choice. No, you won't find designer fabrics, custom-made slipcovers for your futon, or high-end styles here. But, if you like a decent selection combined with the convenience of picking up or returning purchases to a store near you, Home Depot could be the right place to get your slipcover.

Continued from above

In the past, slipcovers had a reputation for being less-than-attractive, largely because they fit badly and didn't earn many points for style or sophistication. Today, however, there are trendy and affordable slipcovers that fit so perfectly, your guests won't even be able to tell that they're not original to your sofa or recliner. You can even get custom-cut slipcovers in the fabric, style, and size you need for any piece of furniture.

You may have already discovered that your local brick-and-mortar stores carry few if any slipcover options. Most of what you'll find is limited to styles that really only amount to a washable pad that you throw over the top of your chair or couch, hoping that it will cover high-use areas like the seat and back. While that's a convenient option, especially if your main priority is protecting surfaces from pet claws and hair, or spills and other accidents, it definitely won't give you a classy upgrade to your home decor. Fortunately, options abound online, putting every imaginable fabric, pattern, and style within reach.

As you decide what kind of slipcover you need and which online retailer should earn your business, how can you tell which stores are the best? Here are several criteria to guide your shopping:

  • Selection. Does the retailer give you lots of options? Are their slipcovers all in-stock? You should be able to select from a wide variety of sizes, colors, and fabrics, in order to get the right slipcover for your furniture.
  • Pricing. How competitive are the prices that the store offers? Are there any money-saving perks like free shipping or discounts?
  • Return Policy. If your slipcover doesn't quite fit, or doesn't look like you pictured it, can you return it for a refund? If so, how much time do you have to make your decision? Will you be charged any restocking fees or return shipping costs?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best slipcover stores for practically every sofa, chair, or other piece of furniture. We hope this information helps you change your decor and protect your furniture with the perfect slipcover!
