As of 2015, AliExpress.com offers sofa covers in a variety of fabrics, colors and styles, with price points ranging from $12.38 to $43.85 depending on the size of the sectional. A common sectional sofa cover includes armrest towels, backrest towels, sofa seat covers and pillow shams. This slipcover option is suitable for short-term or decorative uses.

Sofa protectors on Amazon.com cost about $50 and fit sofa sizes from 74.8 inches long to 90.5 inches. This sofa cover "tucks" around edges and in between cushions. It's made of cotton and polyester, making it machine-washable. This slipcover option is ideal for an often-used sofa in a household with pets and kids.

An inexpensive alternative to purchasing a sectional sofa slipcover is to make one from affordable fabric or canvas drop cloths. A sectional sofa with both a 6-foot section and a 7-foot section uses two 9-inch by 12-inch drop cloths. They cost between $20 and $30 at hardware stores such as Home Depot. Drop cloths are long-lasting and machine-washable, and can be constructed in multiple styles.
