If you live in any major city, you likely have a small outdoor space. Fortunately, just because it is small doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful, functional, and fun. Today, we are sharing with you our top tips on how to enhance your small outdoor space.
How to Enhance Your Small Outdoor Space
Small Outdoor Furniture
One of the easiest ways to enhance your small outdoor space is to utilize appropriate furniture. Obviously, a 12-piece chair set in a small area either won’t fit or will look super cramped. Instead, we recommend using a couples seat (like a love seat or swinging bench), quaint dining furniture (like a small tabletop with two chairs), or multi-functional furniture. Multi-functional furniture is the most useful as it can serve various purposes according to your needs at that particular moment.
Incorporating simple palettes into your design aids in enhancing your outdoor space, removing that overwhelming vibe that comes from too many colors. We recommend utilizing only a handful of colors, with most being neutrals and one or two being bright or vibrant colors.
Easy Lighting Techniques
String lights are an excellent way to add depth and functionality to your outdoor space with ease. All you have to do is install them in a simple pattern above your head.
However, if you don’t have the electricity capabilities to do this, you can incorporate simple lighting techniques like torches, candles, and solar lights. They don’t take up much space and can easily be added or moved around to suit your needs.
If you have a small outdoor space, another method to enhance its beauty is implementing low-maintenance landscaping. Rather than having a huge lawn that needs to be mowed, you can install a concrete, gravel, or wooden patio. From there, you can use potted plants and trees to add that natural vibe without the hassle of constantly pulling weeds.
