Living in a small space doesn't mean you have to compromise on comfort and style when it comes to patio furniture. Whether you have a balcony, terrace, or a small backyard, you can always maximize your outdoor space and create a cozy and functional retreat.
Measure your space
Our customers frequently visit our showroom and fall in love with a set, only to go home to measure and find that it won't fit! Before you start shopping for patio furniture, take the time to measure your outdoor space. This will help you determine the size of the furniture you need and avoid buying pieces that are too large or too small. Make sure to measure the width, length, and height of the area, and consider any obstacles such as doors, windows, or plants.
Opt for space-saving designs
Look for patio furniture that is designed for small spaces. Stacking chairs can be easily stored away when not in use, and benches take up less space than traditional chairs. Consider using furniture that can be easily moved around, such as lightweight chairs or a rolling bar cart.
Don't sacrifice comfort
Just because you have a small space doesn't mean you can't have comfortable patio furniture. Look for chairs and sofas with deep seats and plush cushions. Adding outdoor pillows and throws can also make your seating area more cozy and inviting.
Choose durable materials
Outdoor furniture is exposed to the elements, so it's important to choose materials that are high quality, durable and weather-resistant. Patio Place offers made-in-the-USA brands such as Homecrest, Seaside Casual, and Woodard, which offer 15-20 year warranties for residential use. These well-respected companies incorporate materials like aluminum, teak, and marine grade polymer for long-lasting options.
Adding plants and greenery to your outdoor space can make it feel more inviting and cozy. Consider hanging plants from the ceiling or using a vertical garden to save floor space. You can also add potted plants to your seating area to create a natural and relaxing atmosphere.
Keep it simple
When it comes to small spaces, less is often more. Stick to a simple color scheme and avoid cluttering your space with too many accessories or decorations. Focus on creating a cozy and functional seating area that you will actually want to use.
Choosing patio furniture for a small space requires careful planning and consideration. The Patio Furniture Experts at Patio Place can help you make the best of your space. By measuring your space, choosing multi-functional and space-saving designs, incorporating comfortable and durable materials, and adding greenery, you can create a cozy and inviting outdoor retreat that maximizes both comfort and functionality.
