What’s the difference between couch covers and sofa covers? Nothing really. We all speak a bit differently so it just depends on what you prefer to call it. They are the same furniture products.

Shops to Buy Couch Covers from in South Africa
As we mention above, places like Game Stores, Makro, Pep and Mr Price Home Stores sell couch covers.
It depends what kind of material you are looking for covering your furniture.
For instance if you have pets or small children you are going to want to have your sofa’s fully covered. However if you just want to protect your couches from dust and the odd spillage then thinner fabric covers are ideal.
Therefore the best couch covers are going to depend on your personal requirements for your furniture.
Game stores sell blankets and throws that may be enough to cover your particular couch. Especially if you are only looking to hide a stain or small imperfection in your sofa.
If you are looking for the right slip cover for your couches try online shopping sites such as Takealot. These are loose covers you can simply slip on and off.
