Slipcovered dining room chairs often give a vibe of Shabby Chic or beachy styles that may not appeal to everyone. But as the stains accumulate on our upholstered chairs, I must admit that the idea of a slipcover does sound appealing. Slipcovers can help transform comfortable but otherwise unattractive chairs into something a bit more elegant. They can give uniformity to a bunch of mismatched chairs or they can help soften up a room full of sharp angles and hard surfaces. And it is a lot cheaper and easier to replace slipcovers than to replace chairs.

What do you think of slipcovers on dining room chairs? Does it scream 1990s to you or do you consider slipcovers a timeless and practical option?
