How to Change Removable Slipcovers on a CouchHaus Couch

Slipcovers are a fantastic way to refresh the look of your living space without the need to buy a whole new couch. CouchHaus offers a range of stylish and functional slipcovers, designed with ease of use in mind. This guide will walk you through the steps to change the slipcovers on your CouchHaus couch, specifically focusing on models with Velcro on the armrests and footrests.

Materials Needed:
- New slipcover from CouchHaus
- Scissors (if necessary for cutting loose threads)
- A lint roller (optional, for cleaning the couch before applying the new cover)

Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Remove the Old Slipcover

Unfasten the Velcro: Start by locating the Velcro strips on the armrests and footrests of your couch. Carefully peel back the Velcro to detach the slipcover from the couch frame. This might require a bit of gentle tugging if the Velcro is firmly attached.

Remove Cushion Covers: If your couch cushions have separate slipcovers, unzip and remove them. This is typically straightforward, but ensure to take care not to damage the zippers.

Lift and Slide Off: Once the Velcro is undone and cushions are set aside, lift the slipcover off the couch frame. Start from one end and work your way to the other, sliding the fabric off gently to avoid any snags or tears.

2. Prepare the Couch and New Slipcover

Clean the Couch: Before applying the new slipcover, take a moment to clean the couch. Use a lint roller or a vacuum to remove any dust and debris. This ensures a smooth finish when the new cover is applied.

Inspect the New Slipcover: Lay out the new slipcover from CouchHaus and inspect it for any loose threads or tags that need to be removed. If there are any creases from packaging, you can iron them out according to the fabric care instructions provided.

3. Apply the New Slipcover

Position the Slipcover: Align the new slipcover with the couch, ensuring that the seams and edges match the contours of your couch frame.

Attach the Velcro: Start by attaching the Velcro strips to the armrests. Press firmly to ensure a secure hold. Move to the footrest and repeat the process. The Velcro should align perfectly with the strips on the couch for a snug fit.

Smooth and Adjust: Once the Velcro is in place, smooth out the fabric, adjusting as necessary to eliminate wrinkles and achieve a neat appearance. Tug gently at the edges and corners to ensure the slipcover sits evenly.

Replace Cushion Covers: If you have separate cushion covers, replace these next. Slip the cushions into the covers, zip them up, and place them back onto the couch.

4. Final Touches
Check Fit and Adjust: Step back and examine the overall fit of the slipcover. Make any final adjustments to ensure everything looks crisp and tidy.

Enjoy Your Refreshed Couch: Your CouchHaus couch should now look revitalized with its new slipcover. Take a moment to enjoy the updated look and feel of your living space!

Tips for Maintenance:

  • Regular Cleaning: Follow the Care Guide provided by CouchHaus to maintain the look and longevity of your slipcover. Regular washing and spot cleaning will keep it looking fresh.
  • Tighten Velcro: Periodically check the Velcro attachments to ensure they remain secure. This prevents the slipcover from shifting or sagging over time.

Changing slipcovers can breathe new life into your living room decor, and with CouchHaus's user-friendly designs, it's a breeze. Whether you're switching up for a new season or simply for a change of style, this guide ensures a smooth and efficient process.
