Garden sofa

Garden sofa guide - what to watch out for!

If you want to enjoy the same comfort in the garden, balcony or terrace as in the living room, you should consider buying a garden sofa.

Compared to a conventional sofa, a garden sofa has the following characteristics:
  1. Above all else, a garden sofa is weatherproof. That means: it can stay outside on the balcony, terrace or in the garden even in cold, hot, sunny weather, rain, wind and weather
  2. A garden sofa shouldn't get dirty easily. Stains should be easy to remove
  3. If you have a smaller balcony, the balcony sofa should not be too big. Tip: measure the balcony or terrace before buying the balcony sofa and compare it with the dimensions of the garden furniture
  4. You should pay attention to what material the garden sofa is made of, whether rattan, polyrattan, teak, metal, aluminum or fabric - it makes a big difference in terms of durability and care
  5. If you mainly eat your meals on the balcony, terrace or in the garden, you should pay attention to the height of the garden sofa. Or you can opt for higher garden chairs and a table that is not too low

  6. In addition, the outdoor sofa should be as comfortable as possible so that you can sit and lie comfortably on it
  7. Check the quality of cheap garden sofas critically. Sometimes a high quality garden sofa is cheaper than buying 3 cheap sofas ...

  8. Is a protective cover or cover available for weather protection of the outdoor sofa

What are the advantages and disadvantages of weatherproof garden sofas?

Lounge garden furniture, lounge groups, balcony sofas and garden sofas are made of the different materials polyrattan or plastic, aluminum, stainless steel, wood.
Garden furniture made of polyrattan, aluminum, stainless steel and wood usually consists of a frame and upholstered seat covers.

The cushions are often not weatherproof and are usually stowed in a dry room after use. This is cumbersome and requires storage space. Usually the cushions are not as well padded as high-quality lounge furniture in the living room.

The polyrattan frame can usually be left outside, as the wickerwork is very resistant. Outdoor garden furniture made of aluminum or stainless steel can rust under certain circumstances. Longe garden furniture made of wood can possibly weather and warp.


A garden sofa made of weatherproof fabric, on the other hand, is particularly easy to care for

The outdoor sofas and lounge garden furniture sets by april furniture are completely covered with a weatherproof and water-resistant Sunbrellaâ fabric from boat building.

The high-quality weatherproof and UV-resistant fabric is so insensitive that the lounge garden furniture can be left in the garden, on the balcony or terrace all year round regardless of wind and weather. Additional advantage: This fabric garden furniture is insensitive to dirt, easy to clean and very durable.

The use of the cotton-like fabric enabled very high-quality upholstery on the one hand, as in indoor lounge furniture. On the other hand, the complete fabric cover of the outdoor armchairs, stools and sofa corners enables a classic, minimalist design of the outdoor lounge furniture - which is rarely found in outdoor furniture made of plastic, wood or metal.

Why buying a garden sofa as a lounge set is a good idea

Usually a lounge sofa is not bought for the garden, but for the balcony or terrace. If you buy an outdoor sofa in the form of a fully assembled 2, 3 or 4-seater lounge set, the entire balcony may be blocked, so that there is hardly any space and it is difficult to walk on. This can be a problem, especially with smaller balconies or roof terraces. For example, fixed poly rattan landscapes are often offered at a low price, but they cannot be converted.
Another problem: If you are celebrating a cocktail party or a birthday, for example, the outdoor lounge sets cannot be rearranged or redistributed.

With a lounge set consisting of individual modules, you remain flexible

At april furniture you get outdoor upholstered furniture sets, which consist of the 3 modules outdoor armchair, sofa corner and ottoman. You can set up these 3 upholstered furniture modules individually or combine them into lounge sofas and garden furniture sets of any size. So you can set up the lounge balcony furniture exactly as the space on the balcony or roof terrace allows. And if you need it differently, you can simply rearrange everything.

Frequently asked questions about garden sofas

What are the advantages of the different materials in a garden couch made of rattan, polyrattan, wood, metal and weatherproof textile covering?

Most garden sofas made of rattan, poly rattan, wood, metal and aluminum consist of 2 main components: the body made of rattan, poly rattan, wood, metal, aluminum and the cushions.

Wooden furniture can fade, fade, or warp.

In the case of metal furniture, there is a chance that rust could build up.
