Fitting Guide

The chair covers are stretchy and will go over your chair just like a t-shirt.

The chair covers are designed to fit a range of chairs within a size range and it’s possible that you will need to tuck up slightly at the back in order for the chair covers to look well on your specific chairs. If you prefer a longer look at the back of the chairs, you could pull the chair covers down at the back and then use Commando Strips to keep the covers in place.

Our chair covers are elasticated at the bottom to keep the covers in place. You may like to use our chair clips to give added security.

Preparing Your Chairs

If your chairs are leatherette and the material is frayed, we recommend that you wrap the damaged areas in non flammable duct or gaffer tape to prevent damage to the chair covers. 

If you have very narrow wooden chairs, we recommend using both a chair pad on the seat and piping insulation around the sides and then wrapping in non flammable cling film.

Care Section

  1. WASHING INSTRUCTIONS All of our chair covers are machine washable on a Delicates wash at 30 degrees. Turn inside out and wash separately from the rest of your wash. Do not tumble dry

2.COLOUR TRANSFERENCE

If you are putting dark coloured chair covers onto a light coloured chair, ensure you are happy with the fit first and then wash inside out before using as dark colours can transfer onto light coloured leather and material. Never put damp chair covers onto your chairs or allow anyone to sit on the chair covers if they or their clothing is wet.  We do not accept any responsibility for any potential colour transference.

Other Information

Please refer to our Gallery of customer pictures where you will see our range of chair covers in different home environments. The lighting of your room can impact the colour your chair covers look and there can be slight variance in shades between batches. This is only important to note if you are purchasing additional covers at a later date or if you are purchasing eg. stool covers to go with your chair covers.
