How to Measure for a Slipcover
and how to determine if you have a Sofa or Loveseat or another type with our guide below
As a rule of thumb, measure the number of adults that can reasonably fit on the furniture at the same time
Seats one adult
Seats two adults
Seats three adults
Seats four or more adults
The Accurate Method
If you are unsure how many people fit seated on your piece of furniture, you can also measure by following the steps below:
Take a measuring tape
Step in front of your furniture
Find the leftmost point on the arm
Hold the tape fast creating a straight line going across the sofa to the rightmost point of the furniture arm
This distance is the needed measurement
Here are the typical furniture types and widths
Up to 43" long
Over 100" long
This is more of an introduction to understanding the fit. Please use the Fit Assessment tool in the Measurements & Dimensions section on the Product pages.
