How to Maximize Your Small Outdoor Space

With warmer weather right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about updating your outdoor space! If your outdoor patio or balcony is on the smaller side, don’t worry! There’s no need to sacrifice style. There are plenty of ways to showcase stunning design while still making the most out of your smaller space. Discover how to create a stylish and comfortable outdoor oasis with a few of our favorite space-savings tips below!

1. Deck It Out With Plush Sofas

Small scale sofas or sectionals provide enough comfortable seating for multiple people, making it the perfect spot for entertaining or even a mid-day nap. Style your sofas with a practical coffee table or side table and take it up a notch with some ambient outdoor lighting.

2. Bring in Some Color

Color brings life to any outdoor space, but can really transform one that’s on the smaller side. Decorate your sofa or outdoor seating area with vibrant colors like yellow, orange and blue to bring in the feeling of summer and elevate your space into one that is bold, yet inviting.

3. Opt for Round Tables

Round tables are the ultimate space-savers for both indoor and outdoor dining spaces. Not only can they seat quite a few people in a small space, but they also allow for great conversation since everyone is in close quarters and facing each other.

4. Don’t Forget to Relax

Even with the smallest space, it’s easy to fit in some mode of relaxation. Chaise loungers are the perfect choice due to their narrow and compact frame, allowing you to position and angle them in even the coziest of corners.
