Once you have purchased recliner slipcovers, it is pretty easy to put it on your recliner. More often than not, the different slipcover parts are labeled accordingly, indicating which part goes to what side of the recliner. If what you purchased is a one-piece slipcover, you can simply spread the slipcover on top of the recliner then line up to its shoulders. You will need to set the chair to its reclining position with its foot slightly raised. Once in correct position, simply line up the slipcover’s tags which are marked for the arms. A hole should be available for the handle of the recliner which is at the right side.
Once you’re able to cover the arms, the rest of the steps will be easy to follow. What’s important is that you tuck in the rest of the fabric to achieve a smooth finish. A flawless, crease-free slipcover will make your recliner look as good as new.
