TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award If you're looking for the world's best selection of home decor items, including slipcovers, you won't need to go anywhere but Wayfair. With over 14,000 options in slipcovers alone, plus hundreds of thousands of other products for everything from kitchen to bath, Wayfair truly offers you one-stop shopping on almost anything you could imagine needing for your home.

Slipcover filters

Fortunately, you don't have to randomly browse the many kinds of slipcovers you'll find on Wayfair. Instead, jump directly to a category, like Futon Covers, Loveseat Slipcovers, or Sofa Slipcovers on their main product page. From there, it's easy to apply filters to narrow results down by color, slipcover design, cushion design, price, or attachment (elastic, hook, zipper, and so on). You can also click on the Sort & Filter button to have your results shown by customer rating or ascending/descending price, as well as adding more filters like dimensions, availability, and brand.

Best Slipcovers

Reliable customer reviews

Because Wayfair does such a large amount of business, you can take advantage of customer reviews to give you an idea of which slipcovers really deliver great fit and function. For instance, their most popular sofa slipcover, with over 1100 ratings and an average score of more than 4 out of 5 stars, is the Velvet Plush Form Fit Stretch Box Cushion Sofa Slipcover by Winston Porter. Available in 8 colors at a starting price of $29.99, that's hard to beat!

Customer friendly policies

You'll also have a hard time finding a slipcover store with more customer-friendly policies than Wayfair's. Shipping is free on all orders over $49 - so if you decide to go for that popular slipcover we described, you'll just have to add a few throw pillows or other home extras to get it all delivered at no cost to you. Plus, Wayfair gives you a generous return policy of 30 days to return your slipcover if it isn't what you expected - with no restocking fees like some of Wayfair's rivals charge. Your returned items need to be in their original condition and packaging, though, and you'll have to pay for return shipping costs.

Top Ratings

While Wayfair may not have any custom slipcovers available, there's surely something in their inventory that will be a great fit for your furniture and a nice upgrade to what you currently have. And, with such an easy-peasy return policy, you won't have any issues if you need to return your slipcover and try a different size or style. Because Wayfair makes it such an enjoyable shopping experience to find slipcovers for every need, they easily earn our top recommendation among retailers.

HOME DEPOT

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!
