Selecting patio furniture for a small outdoor space such as a condo balcony is quite different than if you were purchasing a patio set for your backyard or larger patio. We have compiled a list of 8 tips that will help you make the most of your small outdoor space.
1. Think Big but Keep it Small
Just because you have a small space doesn’t mean you can’t have big ideas. It should be seen as a nice challenge to try and create a beautiful space with only so much square footage.
2. Keep your Options Open
The best thing to do when creating an outdoor space is to work with what you have and to keep your options open. There are so many different patio furniture options for a small outdoor space such as a loveseat, a bench, deep seating, arm or side chairs, pedestal tables, and side tables.
3. Add Potted or Vertical Plants
Although you may not have enough room for a full garden, there are a couple ways to add some beautiful blooms and greenery to an outdoor space. If you have a bit more room add a planter or some potted plants to a side or pedestal table. Another option is to create a vertical garden on one of your walls.
4. Use as Much of Your Space as Possible
Just because your space is small, doesn’t mean you can’t still fill it with beautiful patio furniture and patio accessories. Each inch of space is valuable so make sure you use it wisely just try not go overboard.
5. Keep it Coordinated
Since you are designing a smaller space it is important that you stick to one color scheme and overall theme. If you have too many colors or patterns in your tiny space it could be quite overwhelming.
6. Use Alcoves to Your Advantage
Alcoves are perfect places for you to create a charming nook with a bench and some cushions or a small loveseat. This would make a great reading corner or an all around comfy spot for you and a friend.
7. Use Lanterns and Tea Lights
You may not have room for a large outdoor light fixture but adding some tea lights in water filled mason jars or patio lanterns can lighten up your favorite outdoor space.
8. Don’t Forget Cushions
Cushions are so important in a small space as they give your outdoor balcony a sense of coziness. Cushions can be used for a bench, dining or side chair, deep seating, or love seat. Want to make your space extra cozy? Why not add a couple of throw pillows to complete the look!
