Top Ways to Make the Most of Your Outdoor Space

Tucked away in a small lot or nestled among large trees, your outdoor space is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. But with the ability to turn virtually any space into an outdoor living area, you can take advantage of that space without spending a fortune.


Mix and Match

When it comes to maximizing and adding style to your outdoor living space, one of the best ways to do this is to combine a built-in bench with a table. This gives you not only the opportunity to sit down and relax in your outdoor space, but also the ability to put a table and serve food to guests. This is a great way to change your standard patio furniture, add some style to your space and retain the ability to enjoy the outdoors. Moreover, dining tables and benches are a great way to turn your small outdoor corner into a space that feels much larger.


Make Fire Pits

If you have a small backyard, you’ve probably had to make some hard decisions about what to plant and what to leave alone. That’s where outdoor fireplaces and fire pits come in. You can use them to host informal gatherings or set a table on them for a cozy dinner. They’re a great way to add some warmth and ambience to the outdoors without taking a lot of space.


Use the Green to Your Advantage

One of the best ways to make the most of your tiny outdoor space is to use plants. Unlike other plants that take up large amounts of space and demand a lot of attention, smaller plants need less care while providing most of the benefits as large plants do, such as added colour, texture, and depth.

By niftily placing smaller plants, you can ensure that they get the care they need and make the most of the space you have outdoors. Also, by choosing smaller plants, you can avoid the high costs associated with maintaining larger plants, and instead provide an option that still offers most of the same benefits.


Use a Single Piece

When the space is in short supply, it’s often necessary to double-duty the furniture, using a single piece for two purposes. It also gives you the ability to change the setup without having to buy two different pieces. It's a great way to maximize your outdoor living space without having to sacrifice too much. And it's a great option for small-space living, allowing you to use a smaller piece of furniture for two purposes.

The Andre Somna Outdoor Chair (featured here) will liven up your outdoors, and fit perfectly with the built-in bench. Add some fairy lights, and you have the perfect ambience for an evening soiree or a theme party with your besties.  

And you can also continue this look in your living room with matching accent chairs and coffee tables. We have modern looks for larger gardens as well, including the Sierra Bliss outdoor chair and the Apollo Sonata accent table.
