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.

Cost:

From $37 to $1,824

Free shipping on orders of $45 or more

Returns:

180 days from purchase date if new/unused

Lowe's is one of the most well-known names when it comes to home improvement, so it shouldn't be a surprise that they also carry slipcovers. While you may not see many (if any at all) at your local store, their website has an inventory of just over 100 options to choose from - giving you the convenience of online shopping as well as being able to make in-store returns if needed.

Variety lacking

Compared with other retailers of slipcovers, Lowe's didn't have much to leave us impressed. Their selections seemed to leave you between high-end styles from Sunset Trading, priced from $400 to over $1,000, and low-budget stretchy models and throw-over designs under $100.

Not much customer feedback

You can make your browsing easier by using the left-hand filters to narrow down the results by the type of furniture you're trying to cover, the color or fabric type, price and more. But, it's not like you're going to be overwhelmed with choices when there are so few available. Some of the slipcovers have customer ratings and reviews, but the majority have none - demonstrating that this is not exactly Lowe's biggest-selling product.

Free shipping

If you do spot a slipcover that looks like a good match, you'll get more information once you click the thumbnail image. Many of the products we found were eligible for free shipping (orders of $45+) either for home delivery or to a local store. If you enter your information for your local store at the top of the page, you can also see if any of their slipcovers are available for in-store pickup after you order online; however, in several major metro areas, we didn't find any slipcovers with this option.

Good return policy

Other than the convenience of in-store pick-up options, Lowe's really only has one other thing going for it when considering slipcovers: a 180-day return policy. Granted, your item has to be in new/unused condition, but you'll have a lot longer time to return it in person or via mail if it comes and you don't like it.

Don't get us wrong: generally speaking, we like Lowe's and think they're a great option for many products. However, most shoppers aren't going to find enough options for slipcovers there to make it worth the time to browse the site.

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!
