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.

Lowe's

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!
