An Introduction To Car Seat Covers

Thomas Morva
March 1, 2006

Car seat covers are essential upholstery for the car if one wishes to maintain their car in impeccable condition. These covers can be put over the seats and they protect the seats from undesirable external and internal elements of the car.

These covers are tailored to fit over the seats of the cars. They can be custom made to make a perfect fit. They are held in place by zippers or Velcro fasteners or buttons. Velcro fasteners are the most popular as they do not cause any discomfort to the person sitting on the seat. They can be made of cloth, leather or any synthetic material and are washable. Dustproof and stain-proof materials such as neoprene are selected to make better quality car seat covers.

Though some covers are custom designed to fit particular car seats, most of them available in the market are of standard sizes and can fit all types of seats in all kinds of vehicles. They are marginally cheaper than custom designed covers. Covers are made with a foam lining, which may be three to eight inches thick to provide added comfort for the person sitting on the seat. The foam lining also provides insulation to the person.

The basic function of car seat covers is to protect the seats from spoilage. Expensive seats of cars can be saved from animal marks, food marks, sweat stains, etc. by using car seat covers. Car seat covers are a small investment considering they protect precious car seats. It is necessary to wash car seat covers frequently especially after long drives and after the car has been kept in the garage for a long time with the covers on. While buying a car seat cover, it must be checked if the covers are easy to remove and put on so that they can be washed regularly.

Each car seat cover may cost about $30 to $70 depending on the finish and the material with which it has been made. Car seat covers are now available in several patterns and colors. It becomes aesthetically important to match the car seat cover with the rest of the interiors of the car. Car seat covers are today not just a matter of security, but also a matter of vehicle enhancement.
