Updating elementary school interiors
This Ikea slipcover sofa review has been coming for almost 3 years now.
Everyday I get questions about our slipcovered Ikea Ektorp sofas & whether or not we like them.
I think I kept waiting to review them because I wanted a substantial amount of time with them before I gave my honest review.
Before I get into the pros & cons I just want to say that I am obsessed with these couches. I purchased these when I was 23 years old & they allowed me to have the “Pottery Barn” look I wanted for less & I’m so thankful for that.
3 years later & 2 moves later these couches are still going strong & I’m actually sitting on them right now writing this post.
We sit on these couches every single day & they still are like new.
They love the fact that they can be bleached & they don’t have to worry about spills, stains, exd because hey, their couches can be put in the washer. & think of all the dirt on a brown sofa that’s not slipcovered. These sofas come with darker slipcovers as well, so if you are wanting to hide those stains better – They are about three years old.
This neat freak likes being able to wash things when needed & knowing that the sofas I am laying on are squeaky clean makes me one happy girl. – We ordered them online from Ikea & had them delivered to our house.
Again, this is not to make anyone feel like I think your non-slipcovered couch is gross, but just to hinder those comments as we have been getting them for 3 years now. Delivery was super quick & they brought the large boxes in our house & placed them where we wanted them. I kind of wish we would have got two sofas instead because we would have more seating, but I am happy with the ones we got.
In fact later in the post I state that these will soon be in our third living room & we will most like purchase the sectional for this area.
-We did have the blekinge white slipcovers originally, but we purchased the svanby beige slipcover [Not sure if they still have that one] [Update: They do not have svanby beige, but a close look to that one is the Stenasa white I believe] about a year ago & we have used the beige ever since.
It hides a lot more than the white & I love the softer look it gives to the space. Like I said before, these couches are so easy to keep clean!
