SureFit Cotton Duck Short Dining Room Chair Covers get pretty solid overall reviews.  Made from wrinkle resistant, stretch material, the Cotton Duck Covers allow you dress your dining room for an occasion while allowing the beauty of your furniture legs to show.  The chair covers are fairly thick 100% cotton that is machine washable and can be put in the dryer although you should be sure to tumble dry on low to prevent shrinking.

Reviewers note that the covers are a bargain but perhaps too thin.  They also don’t fit particularly well on chairs with rounded backs (they are cut straight).  Also, people with kids complain that the covers slip when the kids squirm and that there is no way to tighten them.  Some people mention stapling them to the chairs to stop them slipping, or putting on some padding to make them more waterproof.

To those people we say that if you’re in the market for something to protect your seat against chairs you are much better off with dining chair seat covers than you are with slipcovers.  You can see our reviews of the various dining chair seat cover options here.  Our editors choice in that category is the SmartSeat Chair Protector.  These Cotton Duck slipcovers are meant for decoration not protection.  You can read more about the difference between dining chair seat covers and dining chair slipcovers in our buying guide.

The Cotton Duck Short Dining Chair Cover fits standard dining chairs with a back height of up to 42 inches.  Keep in mind that you get a better fit if your chair back is close to 42 inches.  Currently, the Cotton Duck Short Dining Chair Cover is available in four colors: sage (green), linen (brown), blue stone (blue) and claret (red).  They are currently on sale for 44% off.  If you want the deal on Cotton Duck Short Dining Chair Covers check them out here.  Overall, we think these are a great choice for inexpensive slipcovers to change the look of your room.
