If you want to protect your furniture so that it looks new for years, you can start by using plastic chair covers. Of course, the variety of covers is nearly as wide as the selection of chairs, so you should research a little before deciding. One of the first details to consider is whether to use clear covers or the kind with designs on them. You should also measure your chairs so that the covers fit snugly. Additionally, know that the chair covers that work well with banquet chairs do not tend to work with folding chairs, so be sure to purchase the appropriate type.

The first choice to make is whether you want your chair's design to show through the cover, or if you prefer covers with their own design. If you still enjoy the original design on your seat, you might consider clear covers so that the pattern can show through, allowing the chairs to continue to match your home's theme. On the other hand, if your chairs do not have a design, or you are bored of the current one, now is the chance to change the appearance. You can do so easily by finding plastic chair covers that either feature a solid color that you find appealing, or which boast an attractive pattern that works well with your home d├ęcor.


It is best if the plastic chair covers that you choose fit snugly over the seats. For this reason, it is advised that you take the measurements of the chairs before buying covers. Be sure to consider the length, width, and height of the seat, as this can help reduce the chances that the cover will be overly loose or too tight. Not only do both issues tend to look bad, but they can also make it difficult to put the cover on the chair at all. Thus, this is one of the most important details to consider when browsing plastic chair covers.

Some chairs fold up for storage, with backs that lean slightly backward when in use so that people are able to recline a bit. These products often call for different plastic covers than other types of chairs do, as their backward slant needs to be taken into account. On the other hand, banquet chairs usually feature a straight back, and need plastic chair covers that fit accordingly. Since the different types of chair covers are not usually interchangeable, this is an important consideration to make before buying chair protectors.
