Sofa arm covers, Each individual uses a sofa arm for a different reason whether for just resting one’s arm, placing food and drinks or for a house pet to chew on! Whatever the reason is, a sofa arm cover can be very useful for protecting the sofa armrest or covering damaged arms of a still usable sofa. The choices of sofa arm covers are not longer restricted to fabric upholstery; there are leather arm covers, plastic arm covers and even wooden arm covers that can serve as trays.
You can be really lucky to find a sofa arm cover that exactly matches the color and pattern on your sofa and seem as if invisible. Yet, sofa arm covers with colors that contrast the sofa or complement one of the sofa colors can be perfect too. Sofa arm covers can begin from the top of the sofa arm and are tucked into the sofa sides, or just a small section to place your elbow or hand. The fully protective arm cover must be measure from the inside crevice between the seat and inside arm, up over the arm, and down to about the same level on the outside of the sofa with an extra two inches for a hem allowance.
Some sofa arm covers can be way functional as some versions can have side pockets to accommodate your remote controls and perhaps a couple of magazines. The most convenient sofa arm covers must allow you to wash them in a washing machine and dry them in the drier. If you use a heavier, upholstery-type fabric, it might be wiser to have the sofa arm covers dry-cleaned. Check out the marvelous ideas of sofa arm covers in the following pictures.
