Customized car seat covers are designed specifically for the particular shape and size of your car’s seats. They may be purchased in kit form, or may be made to measure. The most economical way of getting customized car seat covers is to get the covers cut to your specifications. There are companies that will do this for a fee, or you can find custom seat covers at car accessory stores, department stores and auto parts warehouses.
Car cover kits typically contain several fabrics – one for the inside, one for the dashboard and one to use as a backing. Some people like to add a little more fabric for padding and cushioning. Customized car seat covers are usually sewn-in, but some people like to use Velcro straps and other fasteners for more firmness. Seat covers should always be washed thoroughly. Use a gentle detergent, and avoid bleach and other harsh chemicals.
Most car cover kits include instructions for washing, drying and layering. You’ll want to follow the instructions carefully to make sure the covers will be durable and look good when you re-use them long-term. When choosing a color, be careful to not get something too garish; subtle colors are often easiest to find. Black and dark colors are the easiest to find, but you can also find car seat covers in bright colors such as red and yellow. If you’re looking for a little more variety, look for custom car seat covers that have different fabrics – a denim piece with a cotton blend would be a fun touch!
