Wayfair garden furniture is always our go to for great quality and price – plus there is always a sale going on to have a mooch through. But with the weather being so meh at the moment and the end of the summer definitely in sight, it got us thinking about ways we can still be making the most of our outdoor space even as the seasons start to change.
Personally, we love a cosy up on the patio in the autumn – plenty of blankets and glowing lanterns and a nice comfy outdoor sofa – yes please! So to inspire you to create an outdoor living room, we have rounded up our fave Wayfair looks from their very inspiring Instagram (seriously, check it out).
Head to our garden furniture sales piece garden bargains, or for more outdoor living spaces, make sure you check out our feature, you'll find plenty of looks over there are tips on how to style your new buys.
1. Pick an outdoor sofa for ultimate comfort
An outdoor living room needs an outdoor sofa. And Wayfair have so many lovely affordable options to choose from. Whatever style you go for, make it as cosy as possible by adding cushions and blankets, too. You can pick up an outdoor sofa that you can leave outside all year round, but there are styles that would look just as at home in a kitchen if you want to bring it in when the weather gets really rubbish,
2. Add a pergola for cosiness (and shelter)
Pergolas have been the thing of this summer, and we get it, they add an instant outdoor living space and the prices are amazing. In the autumn and winter you can actually get awnings to make them more weatherproof, we have also seen people cover them with corrugated plastic (check out Dee Campling's pergola set up for inspo).
3. And of course throw down an outdoor rug
No outdoor living room is complete without an outdoor rug, they take what is essentially just garden furniture, to new Instagrammable heights. Wayfair have so many options to suit all styles and you can obviously bring them indoors too. Why not use the rug to be the base for your whole vibe and colour palette? Pick a simple jute rug for a boho feel or go for a classic stripe for a more formal look. There is plenty of inspiration over on Wayfair's Insta so check that out too.
4. Create the right ambience with garden lighting
Obviously you need fairy lights! If you do have some kind of structure, like a pergola or a veranda, string them up above your outdoor living room for a really cosy magical feel. If not, you can't go wrong with fairy lights in trees dotted around your garden. Add light in the living room space itself with some lanterns.
5. Invest in a bargain fire pit for cold evenings
And for the ultimate outdoor living room that can be enjoyed all year round, why not invest in a fire pit. It's so nice to get it going as the nights get cooler and the days shorter, it means you can enjoy your garden way into the winter months. Prices for a chiminea or a firepit from Wayfair start from just £21.99!
