Let’s dive into the IKEA custom slipcovers realm!
1) Which sofas have removable covers?
Unfortunately, not all IKEA sofas have removable covers. But there are plenty of them that have. The most popular ones are Karlstad, Vimle, and Ektorp. These are not only the most famous IKEA sofas; they are also the oldest sofa models IKEA have been producing for a very long time. The best thing about these sofas is that they also come as sectionals, so you really have an option to get a huge couch to accommodate all of your friends and family. Although IKEA has a few variations of the slipcovers for these sofas, the quality of them still leaves much to be desired. Happily, you don’t have to be limited by only IKEA store to shop the slipcover for your IKEA sofa; you can find a few stores that create custom IKEA sofa covers and sell them online. One of them is iFurnitureAssembly where you’ll find not only high quality but also very fashionable products that will make your IKEA sofa look not like IKEA at all.
2) Are the sofa covers washable? How to clean a sofa cover?
IKEA sofa covers are washable and you can clean them all you want. It’s not difficult to do, but remember, it’s a very time-consuming process. You need to follow all the cleaning instructions a slipcover has.
- First of all, you need to spot all the stains on the sofa cover and pre-treat them (if there are any really tough ones).
You can use any spray stain removal for that, but if you really need a recommendation, this one is pretty good – Bissell Oxy Stain Destroyer .
- Remove the slipcover
Just unzip the covers and pull them off.
- Wash it in a machine
Use any detergent you have at home, Oxiclean (to get the best result) and bleach (only if your slipcovers are white). It’s much effective to wash the sofa covers in batches. You could split them into three loads (back cushion covers, seat cushion covers, and the base cover).
- Dry it
To dry the slipcovers, you are going to have to do this in two steps. First step is to run them through the dryer (do not use heat in the dryer by no means). And the second step is to let them dry on the drying rack until they are slightly damp to be easily put back on the cushions (tip: damp fabric stretches more).
3) How to iron a slipcover?
This step is very simple, we won’t reinvent the wheel here. Just use a steamer to get rid of all the wrinkles after you put the slipcovers back on (if there are still any wrinkles).
4) How to dye a sofa cover?
There is a whole tutorial on this. You can dye your IKEA slipcover in any color you want, Rit has a wide selection of colors to choose from. But are you really going to get yourself through this tiresome process? Why don’t just shop a few different slipcovers from our online store and switch them whenever you feel like changing? Our online catalog is constantly updated to always keep you fascinated.
5) Buy a sofa without cover

Or there is another way to get the IKEA sofa frame you want, and in addition it will be for a cheaper price. Check craigslist.com or aptdeco.com. These websites offer furniture (and not only furniture) that is used (sometimes you can find brand new pieces there as well) but still in a very good condition.
