A small patio is no reason not to have a great space to sit, relax with friends, or eat a meal outside. If you’re looking for the best way to maximize your space, take a look at these tips.
Eliminate wasted space. Make sure the placement of your furniture doesn’t leave unusable voids. Instead of spanning a corner with a piece of furniture, use furniture that fits in the corner to make use of every square inch.
Tall behind small. Planting taller trees behind smaller bushes can give the illusion of depth. This will help your space feel larger.
Use your fire pit! A fire pit is a great centerpiece for socializing on a cool evening. But hot summer days are less well-served by a warm fire. A cold fire pit makes a great coffee table – great for breakfast or drinks before dinner. We proudly carry OW Lee fire pits, which are propane-fueled, and which feature a broad tile or metal top for setting down drinks or plates.
Think small and combine. Small, easily moved tables can be a great asset for their versatility. They can be used as side tables, or pushed together to form a larger coffee table or serving space.
Pick one note. A small patio just needs one on-the-mark accent to make it come alive. Whether that’s a growing plant or the perfect pillow, the right accent will make your small outdoor living space absolutely charming.
