Spending extended amounts of time at home might have you feeling the itch for a little interior reinvention. Maybe you’re in the mood to switch up the color scheme in your living room, or perhaps your dog’s excessive shedding is doing a number on your upholstery. At the very least, extra use over the past year has probably caused some untimely wear and tear on your sofa, futon, or sectional. So what do you do now? You could shell out hundreds of dollars on a brand-new sofa … or you could opt for a much easier (and more affordable) solution by way of a cool new slipcover. No, we’re not talking about the huge, clunky, and dated slipcovers of the past (or those gnarly plastic couch covers that stick to the back of your legs). Today’s versions are seriously stylish, and come in a range of patterns and colors to suit any decor style. We combed the internet to find modern, chic, and easy-to-apply slipcovers that will breathe new life into your current sofa. Check them out below.
