If you have a small patio or porch, you know the challenges of avoiding clutter and maximizing your space. Instead of using traditional patio furniture pieces, try using some new techniques and furniture to make even the smallest patio seem big! Check out these space-saving tips:
Think in Circles
When it comes to picking the right furniture for a small patio, think in circles. Square and rectangular tables often come with four legs and take up more room. This makes it difficult for you and your guests to navigate and enjoy your cozy patio area. Look for circular tables with a single, central leg to save space and keep your small patio uncluttered.
Find Multitasking Furniture
This doesn’t mean you should only buy furniture that can text, post on social media, and watch TV at once (but if you happen to find furniture that does this, let us know!). It means you should find furniture with multiple uses. For example, buy a table that also works as a fire pit. Or use a grate over your fire pit to make your own grill. This can reduce the number of furniture pieces you need on your small patio.
Work the Perimeter
If your patio backs up to a wall, make use of the space! The perimeter of the patio creates great opportunities to get creative. Consider adding built-in benches to add extra seating and reduce the need for space-eating couches.
