“Help, help! How do I put my Ektorp sofa covers on my sofa?”
We get this question sometimes, and it’s always been an interesting question to ponder because it’s actually really easy. It’s normally a simple process to pull off your old slipcovers and put new ones on, but we’ve put together a step-by-step video on how slipcovers can be easily installed on your sofa.
Here’s our step by step guide on how to put on your Ektorp sofa covers:
Reasons it may be difficult to fit your slipcovers on your sofa:
- The Ektorp sofa (and many round armed sofas) are technically narrower at the base than at the armrests, which means that the bottom of the slipcover is also narrower than the top, around the arrmrests. To make things easier, put the slipcover on all 4 corners of the armrests first before pulling it downwards.
Is that hard to imagine? Think about putting on a T-shirt – you put it over your head and both arms first before pulling it down your torso, not pulling it over your head and one arm.
- The smaller your sofa is, the less room you have to maneuver, as there’s just less fabric overall. It’s often slightly more complicated to put an armchair slipcover on compared to a loveseat slipcover, for example.
