Messy fingers and muddy paws don't stand a chance against these sofa slipcovers!

Slipcovers and protective covers are our favorite secret weapons against just about any sofa-related conundrum you could find yourself in.

Constantly playing defense between your sticky-fingered toddler and the leather sofa you splurged on after graduation? Protect your investment with a waterproof and sippy cup-resistant sofa slipcover.

Neck deep in potty-training efforts (animal or child)? Sidestep a messy fiasco with a non-slip protective couch cover.

Still working with the well-loved loveseat from college while you save up for your splurge-worthy sofa? A sofa slipcover hides a multitude of sins and can give your space a fresh, new look while you save for your dream sofa.

How to Choose the Best Couch Cover

Our top tip is to take a step back and assess your lifestyle before investing in either a sofa slipcover or protective couch cover for your space. Slipcovers that cover the entire sofa are ideal for anyone on a mission to hide worn upholstery or give their design a totally new look. On the other hand, protective couch covers are great for guarding your sofa against short-term issues like unpredictable toddlers and messy animals.

For long-term use, look for performance fabric or a bleach-friendly white upholstery that you can make look brand-new time and time again. Other great couch cover fabrics include twill blend, stretchy polyester, cotton duck, denim, canvas and heavy-weight linen.
