You’ve had your table and chairs for years and it’s starting to look a bit tired. Our table is around 13 years old and also looking tired, especially the cream seats that are regularly sponged down in an attempt to keep clean.
Do you buy a brand new table? Purchasing a new one can cost a few hundred pounds and not everyone is in the position to be spending right now with the current Pandemic.
There are ways to spruce up your dining chairs. which in turn gives your table a brand new look that’s modern and it doesn’t cost the earth!
While browsing the internet for ways of making our own table look better, I came across some really easy to fit stretch chair covers that simply slip over each chair and surprisingly they really do give a great new modern look to the chairs and table as a whole.
Spandex Chair Covers
As pictured in the image above, these *Spandex Chair Covers are currently the best selling on Amazon at the time of writing this post.
Made from a high persistence soft polyester-spandex yard fabric that washes well without colour fade.
There’s no need to reupholster your chairs with this simple solution. I’d recommend reading the *positive reviews on these covers.
Chair covers can als be used in hotels and for weddings as a cost-effective way to spruce up dining chairs.
Chair Seat Covers
If you don’t want to cover the whole chair, you can just cover the seat. The covers again are elasticated and simply slip over the seat.
You’ll need to unscrew each cushion, pop the covers on tying them if needed, then screw the seat back on. The underside has both ties and elastic, if your chair seats are screwed down, the ties may not be needed and can be cut off. Take a look at these *velvet seat covers as an example.
For wooden chairs, try adding a tie-on cushion, a tie-on cushion adds style to your chair and it’s a lot more comfortable to sit on. There are so many attractive styles these days, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
