When you’re trying to plan the perfect date night at home with your partner, how do you create an intimate, relaxing ambience?


When you’re trying to plan the perfect date night at home with your partner, how do you create an intimate, relaxing ambience?

It all starts with your level of comfort. And there’s nothing more comforting than curling up together on a cosy sofa.

We look at some of the basic things you should be checking before you buy a sofa, so you can get the most out of your quality time together.

Here are five reasons why your choice of sofa could make all the difference on your date night:

Snuggle up and get comfy

Choose a sofa that is covered with a soft, durable material like jumbo cord and has a good level of padding for a truly comfortable experience. You want your sofa to be supportive, so you can relax properly after a hard day’s work. A cosy, warm sofa will also encourage you to snuggle up together, especially on those long, dark, cold wintry nights.

Recline together

Did you know that you can now buy a reclining sofa? The biggest benefit being that you can both recline together! So, you can lie back, relax, and watch your favourite movie from the comfort of your own living room. Simply extend your legs and hit the button on the slide of the sofa to use the recline feature. Although there’s a real risk that you might find it hard not to fall asleep on your date night!

Neutral colour tones

Choosing a sofa in a neutral tone means it will be a great fit in any room. Your sofa will easily blend in with fixtures, furnishings and other furniture. And you will have greater flexibility when you want to change your colour scheme and wall coverings over the years to come. So, stay neutral and give yourself plenty of décor options in the future.

No need for a footstool

A reclining sofa does not need a footstool and has been designed to create more space in modern living rooms, especially if you live in a flat or new-build property. They are very easy to use, mainly via push button control, which means you can relax with ease. As well as enjoying the experience of putting your feet up, you can also save any much-needed space for other furniture items or luxurious floor rugs.

2 or 3-Seater sofas

There are many 2 and 3-seater sofas available, so you can simply pick and choose a model to suit the style and size of your home. It’s important to buy furniture from a trusted retailer like ourselves, who can give you all the advice you need to help you choose the best product for your home. Our sofas are easy to assemble too.

Ready for your date night?

We hope your date night at home is everything you planned and more!

And don’t forget, when you’re looking for a brand-new sofa, don’t forget to double-check your room size. When you’re considering a model with a reclining function, measure the surrounding area to make sure you give both you and your partner enough space to stretch those legs.

We have lots of sofas available and many models match our vast armchair range too, so you can easily upgrade your entire living room suite all in one go. Every sofa we sell comes with a 12-month guarantee and a 30-day returns policy.
