Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of the great outdoors and you can bring it even closer to home with an outdoor sofa. A patio or garden sofa is ideal for giving you and your guests a comfy seat while enjoying the sights and sounds of summertime. And the best part is that with just a few simple tips, you can make sure you’re making the most out of this piece of furniture by ensuring it fits in with your style, complements your environment, keeps its good looks season after season, and helps create memories that will last forever!


Here are a few of our go-to tips to help you get started. 

1. Create a stunning outdoor entertainment area for guests

Hosting an outdoor gathering of friends and family can be a great way to spend your time, especially when you invest in creating an elegant outdoor entertainment area. Whether you're looking to refresh your outdoor space or kick off summer with a newly decorated patio, setting up your outdoor sofa is a perfect choice for providing your guests with seating that is both luxurious and practical. 

And the best part? You can customise your outdoor furniture around your sofa including outdoor lounge sets. From modular seating sets to sumptuous loveseats, having comfortable seating in the fresh air is sure to give your guests a memorable experience!

2. Create a cosy nook for your morning coffee 

Wake up each morning to a dreamy outdoor nook for your morning coffee! An outdoor sofa is the perfect way to make the space comfortable, inviting and stylish all at the same time. It's an easy way to create a beautiful backyard lounge in an afternoon and can be customised to perfectly reflect your taste and aesthetic, especially when paired with a classic and study coffee table.

Before too long, this little spot is guaranteed to become one of your favourite places for relaxing with a cup of coffee or tea and watching the sun come up. Embrace the outdoors by creating a cosy outdoor retreat that you'll savour each morning!

3. Use it indoors!

Making the most of limited space can be challenging, but bringing your outdoor sofa indoors can make all the difference! Lightweight and easy to move, an outdoor sofa is perfect for giving your living room a bit more life. Extra seating in a pinch and a style that fits both inside and out; what's not to love?

The best part of using your outdoor sofa indoors is that you don't have to worry about stains or dirt from use -all you need to do is give it a quick dusting when needed. With just a few simple steps, you can transform your outdoor piece into something that works perfectly in any setting.

4. Create an extended dining area in your patio

There's nothing that makes meals together with family and friends extra special than being outdoors on your own patio for an extended dining experience. With some creative design and the right furniture, you can easily convert your patio into a cosy, inviting space for memorable meal times.

And the good news is that comfortable outdoor sofas provide the perfect solution to create an extended dining area in your patio. Put two side-by-side or opposite each other on either end of the table and you'll instantly upgrade your outdoor living area. Create the perfect look with brightly coloured cushions and unifying prints that reflect your tastes and lifestyle. You'll create smiles around the dinner table as everyone relaxes in comfort while enjoying a delicious meal.

5. Set up an outdoor bar 

Create an oasis with this fun summer project— an outdoor bar area with your outdoor sofa! Start by clearing up space in your backyard, gathering the necessary materials, and setting up your outdoor seating.

Your DIY bar area can include a table for food and drinks, a comfortable sofa seat to relax on, and plenty of lighting for those long summer nights. To make it extra special, incorporate any favourite decorations for the personal touch that will bring warmth and joy to all guests— be it potted plants, string lights or colourful cushions. End off with a tasty snack or beverage of your choice for a complete entertaining experience!
