Buyer’s guide

Comfort

Having a nice comfortable sofa is very important as it allows you to happily use your garden sofa set for long periods of time when the weather is just right to spend a day in the garden.

The key component to a good comfortable sofa is the material used inside the cushions. You want good quality but you also want them to be well filled to support people sitting on them. Foam is a good material for this as it also holds up well in all weathers.

The frame of the sofa will also contribute comfort. Having a nice upright section that supports your whole back will add extra comfort especially to the taller people among us.

Design

The design is often up to personal taste and also the current style of your garden as you will want your sofa to fit the aesthetic you are aiming to create.

Design choices vary from sleek and elegant to a more rustic style. For sleek styles, the rattan used is often grey or white with nice clean lines. These styles are often finished with smooth cushions that add to the modern, sleek design.

For a more rustic look wood is often used and the cushions will have more texture and detail in them.

There is a wide range of sofa sets in our list and their designs vary quite significantly. This should allow you to find one that suits your taste and the size and style of your garden.

Size

Garden sofa sets come in a wide range of sizes allowing you to find the perfect one for your space and the amount of people you need to seat. Large sofas are perfect if you want to entertain or have a large family. If you don’t need as many seats or have a smaller space, there are other options on our list that will suit your needs.

Modular sofa sets offer great flexibility and can be easily adjusted to fit a space nicely. Also, some smaller sets are clever in their design to help them blend in and not dominate the space.

Material

Most garden sofas are built out of either wood, steel or aluminium. All these materials are sturdy and look good. Wood styles look great in a more natural environment while steel offers strength and sleek design.  Aluminium gives you a nice combination of strength and lightness making it easy to move your furniture around to catch the sun.

Metal framed sofas are often by a polyethylene rattan which gives a stylish finish and completes the look of your sofa. This material is durable, weather-resistant and easy to wipe clean.

The cushions of garden sofa sets are normally covered with a plastic material or a blend of cotton and polyester. This creates a weather-resistant cushion which is important for a garden sofa set.

The cushions are often filled with foam which is a good material as it doesn’t hold much water and dries out quickly. Foam is also a good material as it is supportive and comfortable.

Weatherproof

Weatherproofing is a must for a garden sofa set as it will inevitably be caught in a summer shower at some time. All of the sofas on our list have some kind of weatherproofing from water-resistant to fully waterproof materials. This means they won’t suffer if caught in a shower.

Conclusion

Garden sofa sets are a great addition to the garden. They allow you to be as comfortable as you would be in your living room while still enjoying the sun in the great outdoors.

They also look great and add a stylish feature to your garden. Garden sofas are great for entertaining as you can fit lots of people on them for those summer barbecues.

I would recommend the Monaco Luxury Large Brown Rattan Garden Sofa Set because of its clever and versatile modular design, good construction quality and stylish good looks.
