4 reasons to choose velvet fitted sofa covers for your interiors

10th February 2021

Velvet. Just that word alone carries a lot of weight, effortlessly evoking a sense of luxury and glamour. Velvet fabrics have been around in various forms for thousands of years now, and today it’s a fabric that’s gained a reputation as the epitome of style and comfort.

That’s made it a time-honoured favourite for interiors, so it’s probably no surprise that velvet fitted sofa covers have always been so popular with our customers right here at Cover My Furniture. Best of all, our removable sofa covers aren’t limited by some of the downsides that are traditionally associated with velvet, making them not only an attractive aesthetic choice for your sofas, but a supremely practical one too.

It gives your interiors an immensely cosy look

Let’s start off with the obvious – one of the biggest appeals of velvet has always been its soft and plush appearance. Just that quality alone can be enough to transform an entire room, making it seem exceptionally warm and inviting. If you ever feel that your sofa is looking a bit tired or drab, a new velvet loose cover can be the perfect thing to help give it a fresh lease of life, so that you can’t wait to sink down into its cosy depths after a long tough day at work.

This feeling can be enhanced by darker or richer colours like Everyday Velvet – Royal, or Luxury Velvet – Mint, which is one of the many reasons that these deeper shades tend to be so popular when it comes to velvet fabrics.

Velvet is effortlessly stylish and super on-trend

If you want to make a statement with your interiors, velvet is without a doubt one of the quintessential choices. It strikes the perfect balance between glamorous and modern, luxurious but not pretentious. No wonder, then, that it’s a key element of this year’s Opulent Grandeur interior style, with the most vibrant colours taking centre stage to create an atmosphere of splendour and indulgence. After all, who doesn’t like to feel like royalty every now and again?

What’s more, while velvet might be the go-to for those who like to keep on top of current trends, it also has a certain timeless quality to it as well. While it’s always been a firm favourite for people looking to inject a bit of wintry charm into their interiors, velvet has now garnered such a versatile and enduring reputation that it’s now used in all manner of interiors all year round.

It’s more hardwearing than you might think

People tend to think of velvet’s soft, plush nature as having a natural downside – namely, that it could be an absolute nightmare to clean. Happily though, that’s not something you have to worry about with our loose velvet sofa covers here at Cover My Furniture. If there are any messes or spills, our washable technology means that you can simply remove the cover and put it straight into the washing machine, so that you can take it out as good as new!

Plus, velvet fabric has no raised weaves or loose threads. That makes it difficult for the material to snag on anything, which is always ideal if you’ve got tiny paws or claws in the house which might be making their way across it frequently. The pet-friendly nature of velvet is enhanced by the fact that it has a flat pile like a rug, which further adds to its durability.

You can take your pick from a wide range of colours

As we’ve touched upon above, the deeper and richer tones tend to be the first choice for many of our customers, with fabrics like Luxury Velvet – Pink, Luxury Velvet – Azure, and Everyday Velvet – Emerald all regularly topping the list. But these deep, vibrant colours are far from your only options when it comes to velvet. These days, plenty of our other customers also express strong preferences for some of the more neutral shades, such as Luxury Velvet – Dove, Luxury Velvet – Dolphin, and Everyday Velvet – Zest.

While bolder and more vibrant colours are an excellent choice if you want to stay bang on-trend, these neutral tones are often favoured for their ability to infuse interiors with an understated, timeless atmosphere – perfect if you want to achieve a more calming effect for your home. And when you combine this tranquil atmosphere with the wonderfully tactile qualities of velvet, you’ve got a sofa you’ll never want to get up from!

These are just some of our favourite things about velvet, of course – you might well be able to think of plenty more! And if you’re thinking about a new velvet fitted cover for your own home, you’re in exactly the right place. We take care to provide a comprehensive range of sofa covers, chair covers and more for you to choose from here at Cover My Furniture – so that no matter your preferred style of velvet, you’ll always be able to find plenty of options to suit you.
