Contrasting sofa covers and cushion covers add colour and style to your living room. Cushions can be thrown around on the bed, on the chair or even on the floor to give the room a warm, cosy and comfortable ambience. And with floral designs, silk covers or even simple cotton prints to choose from, you will realise that giving the decor a face lift does not necessarily have to pinch your wallet. From hiding the sagging seat to the threadbare arms in your favourite couch, a cushion cover is all you need to avoid reupholstering. Also, if you are afraid to repaint the walls since you do not have the budget to buy new furniture then buying new cushion covers is the cheapest and the best alternative. Depending upon your taste, you could experiment with bold vibrant colours or soft subtle colours. Read the following section to know more about the types of cushion covers
