Which Fabric is the right one for me?
If you are looking to purchase futon slipcover you may have noticed there are hundreds, if not thousands of options available, ranging from color, pattern, size, and price. Perhaps you are looking for traditional floral print, or a contemporary design, or stripe pattern, or possibly a microfiber futon cover. The environment will in most situations determine the type of futon slipcover you need. By environment, I am referring to not only the space itself, but the what other items are the sharing the space and who will be using it. As an example, do you have children or pets? Will this be used as a main piece of furniture in a livingroom, or as an occasional in the guest room. If you are in a moist environment or are planning to have your mattress outside, an acrylic outdoor futon slipcover will be ideal rather than a cotton slipcover as cotton absorbs moisture and the acrylic is both moisture and mold resistant. For children and pets, a microfiber cover may be a better option as microfiber is stain resistant, water repellent and machine washable.
