They also are not very versatile when it comes to colors and styles. Custom slipcovers however give you the chance to have a cover that is made to fit a specific piece. Like any slipcovers these covers are removable so that they can easily be switched out or taken off for cleaning. By customizing your slipcovers you can also choose the fabric and styling that suits your tastes. No more having to settle for an ill fitting cover that was not really what you were looking for in the first place.
