Sometimes, with a small patio, it can be hard to envision how best to style the space for maximum comfort and ambiance. For some people, minimalism is the goal, with no mess and clutter, while others revel in colorful cushions, tables, and plants everywhere. If you’re still searching for design inspiration for your small patio, here are some ideas to help make your patio the perfect hideaway.
One of the best ways to make the most of your small patio is to take advantage of the vertical space. With wall-mounted planters and hanging baskets, you can turn your patio into a green oasis while saving floor space. These clever solutions add a pop of color and create a sense of dimension to your backyard.
Space Saving Furniture
When choosing furniture for a small patio, looking for space-saving options is important. Foldable chairs, tables, and modular furniture that can be easily stored will go a long way. Multi-functional pieces like ottomans that double as extra seating, a side table, or storage are smart choices for small patios. With some creative problem-solving, you can maximize every inch of your small patio and create an outdoor living space to enjoy year-round.
Don’t Be Afraid to Add Color
One of the best ways to make a small patio look bigger is to use the right color palette. Neutral and light colors make your space feel more open and airy. However, don’t be afraid to add vibrant and bold shades to complement your outdoor space and personal style. A few throw pillows or a unique rug are all you need to create a fun and welcoming space.
Experiment with Lighting
Lighting is essential in ensuring that your patio use isn’t limited to only daylight hours. Luckily, having a smaller space to work with means that just a little light can go a long way. Hanging string lights overhead or along your fence will add a warm glow to any outdoor space. Even if you have limited access to outdoor power, you can use lanterns or solar lights to illuminate your space.
