Even the smallest of patios can become an inviting and relaxing retreat with the right furniture and accessories. Take some tips from the pros to transform your small patio into a private oasis.
Hanging curtains is an inexpensive and easy way to create a temporary wall. Gauzy and flowing fabrics soften the look of your patio and add privacy – perfect for renters or those who live near neighbors that are too close for comfort.
Make a Statement with Lighting
Good lighting goes a long way in creating ambiance after the sun goes down but always make sure to use outdoor cords and light bulbs.
Provide Extra Seating with Floor Pillows
Floor pillows add not only pops of color but also extra seating without taking up too much room. Tuck them away when not in use or use as decorative accents.
Include a Lounge Space
The right seating can turn an unused patio into the perfect place to start and end your day.
Choose Furniture that Multitasks
Furniture that can pull double duty is the perfect choice for a small space. Consider an ottoman that can pull double duty as a table or a pouf that can be used for an additional seat, table, or place to put your feet up.
Bring in Greenery
Greenery brings vibrancy and pizzazz to any room. Bring color and texture to a small patio with potted and hanging plants.
Turn on the Tunes
Atmosphere is everything. A small outdoor Bluetooth speaker will help set the mood with sounds and takes up minimal space.
Add Pops of Color
Neutral tones can be relaxing but color keeps it interesting. Add pops of blue and green to complement your natural surroundings without overpowering.
