Slip covers and performance fabrics are just one more way of maintaining white upholstered pieces.


THE CHALLENGE - WHITE SOFA VERSUS PETS

 

With the current trend toward a more neutral home decor, I've often been asked by clients and customers alike for suggestions on how to keep a white upholstery looking pristine when there are pets in the house and also whether or not it even makes sense to purchase a white sofa to begin with.  Here are a couple of suggestions which I hope offer some food for thought for those of you dealing with this issue.

First and foremost, it's important to keep in mind that white won't go out of style.  After all, when was the last time you heard someone say white is so last year?  It goes with every color palette. You can change your pillows, throws and other accents and easily create an entirely new look for much less than if you had to consider redecorating an entire room.  

When pets are a consideration, you may want to go with a slip cover design in a washable fabric.  The number one benefit of a slipcovered sofa versus an upholstered sofa is that it’s, by and large, easier to clean. You can simply unzip the cover and toss it in the washer anytime it appears dingy or when there’s been an accidental spill or pets have left behind hair and paw prints.   I tend to recommend slipcovered styles for people who love the look of a crisp, white sofa but worry about maintaining a clean and fresh look, especially in homes with kids and pets.

Similarly,  if something goes awry and you’re left with permanent damage, you can simply replace the cover rather than enlisting the help of a professional upholsterer or buying a whole new piece altogether. Overall, slipcovered styles wind up being more cost-effective over time.

Everyone purchasing a new white sofa or chair worries about what it will look like with pets in the home.  In fact, a fear of stains leads many people with pets to simply put off buying new furniture completely.  There’s no need to live with a sofa that's falling apart just because you’re concerned with stains. Today there’s a whole new category of upholstery fabric that’s popped up in recent years - performance fabrics such as: 

        * Revolution fabrics made from Olefin yarn that are naturally stain-resistant,

       * Crypton fabrics with built-in stain and odor resistance and are anti-microbial and lastly,

       *  Inside Out fabrics which are extremely durable and inherently stain and liquid resistant.

 

These remarkable products can handle spills and dirt with ease. While there is no one “magic” fabric that promises to stand up to every hazard, technology has given us several great options that should make it easier to keep your new white sofa looking new longer.

The best tip of all, and probably the most low effort, is to keep your white upholstered furniture protected from pets by keeping it covered.  The sound of that might seem unattractive and bring memories of plastic covers like grandma used to have, but there are a lot of modern options on the market.  You can cover your furniture with wasable blankets, pet proof coverlets and protectors or throws.  Your pet most likely has a favorite spot to lay, and often times that's right on the couch.  Make sure that spot is nicely covered with something that's easy to maintain and wash.  While not the most luxurious in some instances, these problem-solving furniture covers keep hair, dirt, and moisture off of your sofa. 

 

Our pets are part of the family and just like husbands and kids, we need to take the good with the sometimes messy.
