A conservatory is an excellent space to have in your house. It can be as expensive or as budget friendly as you’d like, as there are a number of DIY Conservatories on the market, too. Whether you’re using it as a play area for the kids, or entertaining your guests, it’s a versatile space that adds light and life to the rest of your home (not to mention the extra space). Once you’ve got the infrastructure of your conservatory built and ready for decoration, it can often be difficult to know where to start. 

We always recommend starting with your ‘essential’ furnishings first, such as conservatory blinds, conservatory curtains and conservatory rugs. Then you can start to pad out the less essential furnishings such as dining furniture for the conservatory, conservatory chairs and a conservatory sofa.

We review 8 of the best conservatory sofas, taking into account their design, material and overall suitability. There is a mix of 2 seater conservatory sofas and 3 seater ones, too.

Summary

Choosing the right sofa for your conservatory can be difficult, as your decision can depend on how often you think you’re going to use your conservatory, as well as whether you have children or pets that may damage furniture. There is always an inner battle between style and comfort, and more often than not you have to pick one or the other or end up stretching your budget. 

There are two different types of scenarios that pose similar dilemmas. If you have a brand new conservatory with no interior design, you may not want to commit to buying an expensive or standout piece because you may change your mind. The other scenario is that you are replacing an old sofa – and it can be difficult to part with something that has served you well, and there can be doubt as to whether your new sofa will be as good.

Here are some things to look out for when purchasing your conservatory sofa.

Style

You need to decide pretty quickly whether you want modern, retro or comfort. If it’s a chunky, cozy sofa you’re looking to purchase you need to ensure that it fits with the style that you are looking for throughout your whole home. Same if you choose something that is modern or retro. A standout piece like a sofa can change the whole dynamic of a room, so make sure you decide on that first before picking something. 

Material

Whether it’s leather, fabric, velvet, cotton or linen, you need to ensure that you pick a material that you like and also suits what you are using the conservatory sofa for. If it’s for movie nights and chilling out, leather can sometimes feel creaky and uncomfortable. Or, if you’re looking for a play area for kids – white cotton is probably going to be a dangerous move – be practical with your material choice.

Size

It sounds obvious, but don’t choose a large, 3 seater sofa if your conservatory can just about fit a dining table in it. You’re much better off having a 2 seater sofa that fits and is comfortable, than a 3 seater sofa that swallows up the whole room and probably won’t get used that often. Most 2 seater sofas will be able to fit three small children, so if that’s a concern – check out the measurements first.

Maintenance

If you’re looking for something that is low maintenance, we recommend going for a sofa that has a removable cover that you can put in the wash every couple of weeks to get rid of dust, dirt, grime and mess if you have young children. If you are not able to maintain the sofa and be on top of the upkeep, then don’t buy it.

FAQ

Should I get a 2 or 3 seater sofa?

It depends on the size of your conservatory. We recommend measuring the area where you want to put your sofa and then finding sofa styles (whether it’s a 2 or 3 seater) that will fit the space that you’re looking to fill.

What size conservatory sofa should I get?

Each sofa will have slightly different measurements, so we recommend to always measure the space where you want to put your sofa and then you’ll be able to find sofas within that measurement range.

Do cushions come with all the sofas listed?

Not all sofas will come with cushions, but it will always specify on the listing if they do either on the key bullet points or in the ‘specifications’ box.

How do you wash the sofa?

Depending on what material your sofa is, you may have a removable cover that you can put in the washing machine. Another way to wash your sofa is with a warm water spray and a sponge to gently lift any dirt or grime from the sofa. You can also buy sofa cleaners and detergents suitable for the material your sofa is made from.

Should I get a firm or soft sofa?

It’s all down to personal preference and what you like. If you find that soft sofas are uncomfortable for you, opt for a firmer one. If you hate firm sofas, opt for a softer one. It’s that simple.

Can you remove the covers from the sofas?

Only if the brand says that you can, otherwise you won’t be able to.
