The 5 best sofa accessories for maximum comfort on movie night

26th April 2022

We know it can be a bit of a challenge to bring that cinema experience into your home. Nothing quite beats the comfort of the big recliner chairs and the easy access to snacks and drinks you get when you go to the movie theatre.

(And if you’ve got loose sofa covers for your couch, you don’t even have to worry about stains – if you spill anything, you can simply remove the cover and put it straight in the washing machine, to leave it looking as good as new!)

There’s more to movie night than just snacks, though – there are loads of great little accessories that you can get your hands on to bring some extra comfort to your movie night. Here’s a few of our favourites that we think you’ll love!

Armrest organiser

The last thing you want on movie night is a tense scene ruined by something falling off the sofa and clattering on the floor. So, why not store all your remotes, bottled drinks and other bits of clutter out the way in an easily accessible place? Armrest organisers give you this option. Just drape it over the armrest and tuck the extra fabric between the sofa cushions, and you’ll have a handy little storage space for any loose items that could potentially disturb you while you watch!

Sofa side table

As it’s movie night, you’re going to need somewhere to put your drinks, snacks and popcorn box! Elevate your movie night experience with a sofa side table, and relax in the knowledge that all your snacking essentials are to hand when you want them. You won’t have to reach down to the floor and move out of your snug spot, spoiling your comfy set up. With a sofa side table you’ll have an extra bit of elevated space where you can keep all your food and drink within arms reach, meaning you can spend less time searching for your confections, and more time relaxing watching your film.

Back support pillow

When you settle down for an evening of silver-screen entertainment, you know you’re in it for the long hall. You want to be comfortable for the full runtime of whatever it is you’re watching, and your lower back is a commonly neglected area when it comes to achieving optimal comfort. So, we’d recommend implementing some lower back support to your movie watching regime. You can do this by either using cushions you’ve already got at your disposal, or purchasing some specialist, lower back cushions to give your back maximum support.

A small handheld hoover

Everyone loves a good cinema snack, so chances are once you’ve finished your at home movie night, there may be a few bits of popcorn, crisps, chocolate and so on scattered about your sofa. Handheld hoovers are small and light-weight, so they’re absolutely perfect for clearing up any crumbs on the sofa that have spilt whilst you weren’t looking. A small but powerful device (depending on the quality of the vacuum you buy), handheld hoovers are a fantastic addition to your cleaning cupboard, and the perfect way to give your sofa a little spruce up after a night of Hollywood entertainment.

A big cosy blanket

This is a fairly self evident one to be honest. We all know that there’s nothing better than snuggling up under a blanket to watch your favourite film. They are the absolute epitome of cosy, and they can be found in all kinds of shapes, colours, sizes and styles to suit any taste.

If you’re thinking of investing in a new throw, why not consider pairing it with a new set of sofa covers to create a beautiful centre piece for your living room? If done with care, you can create the perfect sofa and throw combination – our wide range of sofa covers come in a variety of materials and colours to suit any living room design.
