Before choosing a chair cover, consider your existing dining room set, design preferences and household needs. Finding chair covers is easy once you shop with specific goals in mind:
A: Setting an elegant dinner table makes food look better and enhances your guests' eating experience. The effort makes guests feel cared for and appreciated. A casual dinner setup is ideal for more laid-back entertaining. Do not be afraid to use simple dinnerware and utensils - identical pieces that are clean and free of chips or cracks look beautiful. White or ivory flatware suits most decors and matches with stainless steel cutlery. Choose napkins that flatter your seat covers and tablecloth. Again, white is always an attractive, safe option. A laid-back dinner party may include soup, salad and a main course. Each guest needs a soup bowl and spoon, a salad plate and fork, and a dinner plate with a fork and dinner knife. Etiquette experts recommend placing a cloth napkin on the extreme left of a place setting, but you can choose to present the napkin in other ways. Glassware looks gorgeous when clean and polished with a high shine. Ornate glassware may be pricey and hard to replace, so reserve your best drinking glasses for special occasions.
A: Many chair covers are washable, but keeping them clean helps them last longer. One way to keep chair covers clean is to reserve them for special meals. Remove them after use and put them away unless they need washing. Keep your dining area free of small children and pets to avoid accidents, fingerprints and scratches. Use chair covers when wearing clean clothes and keep sharp objects away from them. Chair covers come with washing directions. Following them can help keep their fibres clean without damaging them. As a guide, always launder stretchy fabrics in cold water and use a low-temperature drying cycle. Non-spandex covers like cotton or polyester can tolerate warm water and a medium-heat dryer. Do not put lace or delicate fabrics in a washing machine. Instead, wash them by hand in mild washing detergent and warm water and dry them on a flat surface.
