Here’s a guide to buying the best Piano Cover; you have options to choose from a range of upright as well as Grand Piano Covers.
Choosing a keyboard cover for most portable keyboards is quite easy as a standard stretchable one fits most keyboards. You have options of going in for a 61 or 76 key keyboard cover or an 88 key keyboard cover.
But when it comes to pianos, both upright as well as grand piano, the piano covers need to be of different sizes, depending on the size of your piano. When you order an upright piano cover or grand piano covers, it needs to fit your piano perfectly.

Choice of Color
The most common colors that are available are black, ebony and brown, so you may choose one of these colors for your piano cover. Though color is a personal choice if your piano is ebony colored, then you should preferably get a black cover. Bust as mentioned if the decor of your room calls for another color then please feel free to go with that color to complement the surrounding.
Choice of Fabric
The most common material when it comes to fabric of a piano cover is vinyl, very easy to wipe it clean using a damp cloth or even using a vacuum cleaner.
These are also lightweight so Grand piano covers made of vinyl are easier to remove and place on the piano.
But if water is a big concern for you and really want your piano cover to be water-resistant then you can use Kiwi Camp Dry to the cover to make the material totally water-proof.
It is possible to order custom made upright or grand piano cover where you can specify whether you want the cover that goes all the way to the floor or not. Obviously this would cost extra, but you do have this option especially if you live in a very dusty area. By the way, you also have the option of protecting the legs of your piano by purchasing separate leg covers.
Locking Straps are particularly important if you expect children to be near the piano. These act as a barrier in case the kids are tempted to remove the cover to play the piano. Most hotels, schools, churches have expensive pianos so adding locking straps to the piano covers just makes it more safe.
So as you can see besides keyboard covers, you also get organ covers, upright piano covers & grand piano covers to protect your keyboard instrument from dust, pets and accident spills. Piano repair and maintenance can be an expensive affair so investing in a good piano cover is a small price to keep it safe.
