How to Measure your couch for a slipcover
One of the easiest to update your furniture is by adding a slipcover. Slipcovers come in many colors and come in ready-made or custom designs. Here are some tips you can use when you are measuring your furniture for a new slipcover.
1. Measure the length and width of sofa- when measuring the length measure from the outside are to the opposite arm so you'll be able to get the longest length of your furniture. For the width start from the front outside edge of an arm and continue to the back corner then measure the back side of your sofa. Be as accurate as you can so you don't get bunching on the center of the sofa.
2. Measure the height of your cushions- Measure from top to bottom to achieve the best success.
3. Measure the couch from top to bottom and edge to edge to determine the exact height of the couch.
