Cozy Cottage Style

Linen Covers

In this designer dining room, four side chairs with slipcovers in stonewashed linen offset the heaviness of the tall upholstered armchairs. Besides being super comfortable, the slipcovers are user-friendly, too. Should dinner parties result in spills or stains, the slipcovers can simply be tossed into the washing machine.

Cozy and Creative Style

Use slipcovers to give your room a natural, creative flair. Tightly fitted on top and loosely flowing on the bottom, these cream slipcovers add a touch of charm to this dainty, cottage-style sitting area. Set alongside a rustic wood table, the neutral colors contrast nicely with the entire design. Design by HGTV fan LuluD

Add a Throw Pillow

Add some easy, interchangeable style to your chairs with an accent pillow. Get creative when choosing the style, shape and texture of the pillows. The pillows can be used to spice up any monochromatic color scheme, giving your space an extra pop of color. Design by HGTV fan gkmdc

Personalize Your Space

Embroidering your last initial onto your slipcovers is a fun way to personalize your space. Be creative and adorn them with holiday symbols and alternate them throughout the seasons. Your new embroidered slipcovers will make for a great conversation starter at your next dinner party. Design by HGTV fan ebonie

Match Your Mood

Add femininity and elegance to your dining room by adding tieback slipcovers to your chairs. With a casual, loosely fitted style, these slipcovers can be interchanged with other colors to suit the mood or occasion. Design by HGTV fan LewisDesigns

Dramatic Design

Add a touch of drama to your space by pairing basic dining chairs with covered end chairs. In this elegantly styled dining room, antique side chairs contrast nicely with white slipcovered end chairs. The result is a soothing space created by a nice variation of styles. Design by HGTV fan lovetodecorate16

Simple Style

Pair a neutral slipcover with colorful table settings to create your own high-style dining room. Complemented by a bold focal wall, these crisp, white slipcovers look especially lovely with lime-green accessories. Design by HGTV fan mfranc

Unify Your Design

Repeating patterns help unify a design and create balance within a space. In this dining room, tufted slipcovers with pleated bottoms boast the same pattern as that used for the window treatments. For a custom look in your dining room, choose a fabric for both the window treatments, slipcovers and placemats. Design by HGTV fan EASTN2

Design for the Holidays

Spice up your dining room during the holidays with neutral slipcovers and a classic china set. Pair them with your favorite holiday accessories to create a festive and stylish room ready for entertaining. While hosting holiday get-togethers, you can protect your furniture while making a fashion statement. Design by HGTV fan macd4412
