Five Benefits of Car Seat Covers

To cover your car seats or not to cover them; that is the question. To help you make up your mind, let’s talk about five benefits of car seat covers that work no matter what you drive. Banister’s Upholstery specializes in vehicle upholstery, including automobile seat covers. Do you really need them? Do you really want them? Here are some things to consider.


Most people opt for car seat covers because they protect the original seats. You cannot prevent dirt and grime from coming into your vehicle; roads are dirty. You also can’t prevent the occasional spilled drink or food, especially if you have kids secured in the back seat. Seat covers prevent stains, and they’re a lot easier to clean, too, than your vehicle’s original upholstery.

UV Protection

Another way car seat covers protect your original upholstery is sun protection. The sun’s UV rays beat through your vehicle’s windows and fade your dashboard and upholstery. This is why many people not only use car seat covers but also dashboard covers. Think of the sun as bleach. The more it shines on your vehicle’s seats the more faded they will become.


If your car, truck, or SUV has seen a few miles and is looking a little worn, new seat covers can spruce up the interior. The covers will hide the stains you haven’t been able to get out of the seats. Covers can also hide faded and torn upholstery. Perhaps you’ve just bought a used car and would like to give it a little TLC. Use seat covers to improve the interior aesthetics.


If you protect your vehicle’s interior now, you will protect its resale value later. The better condition your vehicle is in when you are ready to trade it in or sell it the more money you will get for it. As we’ve discussed above, seat covers protect the original seats from dirt, grime, fading, and even tearing. This leaves you with a beautiful interior when you’re ready to sell.


Finally, car seat covers allow you to customize your vehicle to your specific tastes. Go elegant, funky, or even playful if you want to. It’s completely up to you. You can allow your vehicle’s interior to express your inner self with car seat covers. Make your compact sedan look like a luxury car with leather seat covers. Go racecar with checkered seat covers. It’s up to you.
