    After washing the covers, I’ve been told to put them on wet to dry, so they don’t shrink. Perhaps this is why it’s no longer fitting? Love your blog, about to paint the legs of mine now !

    1. I don’t have experience with either one, but I can tell you that we’ve had two different IKEA sofas and loved them both! I’m sure you can’t go wrong either way.

  3. Thanks for sharing!!!!!

  4. I am debating buying one off of Craigslist right at this very second, and this blog post totally helped! Thank you!

    1. So glad it helped you, Jennifer!

  5. hi Amanda! We just got a second hand Karlstad sofa and need to replace the cover,
    I love your dark cover, was this the one that came with it at the time? Ikea only offers a light gray cover that is not my favorite, so was wondering if you had bought your darker one elsewhere. I was thinking maybe I could try dyeing it, but would prefer to purchase if still available. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Emily! When we purchased this sofa it was still available through IKEA (this version has since been discontinued) so we had plenty of cover options through them. I do know there are places that sell custom sofa covers for IKEA sofas, but I don’t have experience with any of those companies.

  6. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the sofa! An honest review is everything we need!
