Decorating Ideas For A Small Patio
If you have a small patio, you may find a challenge when it comes to decorate it. However, with the right decorating ideas, you can make your small patio become much more interesting. And here are some small patio decorating ideas for you. Decide what you need or want to do with your small patio. You may want to use your patio for a single function or work to fit different activities into the small space. Combine a small container garden with a seating area or make space for cooking and relaxation on your patio. A well-designed small space can work for a variety of activities, as long as the furnishings and decorations are scaled appropriately. Measure your small patio to plan out decorating. Determine how much space you have available. Allow for seating space. Benches near the sides may allow for the best use of space. Two benches set into a corner along with a small square table can create an area for eating or relaxation and leave plenty of space free for a container garden, a grill or storage. Choose or build benches and tables with storage for the best use of your small outdoor space.
Accessories and decorations can take your small patio from functional to attractive. Situate outdoor lighting near walkways and above or on the table. Even if you have a classic porch light, softer candle light can be ideal if you plan to entertain on your outdoor patio. Add hanging plants or mount window-box-style planters to railings. Purchase attractive gardening items or grill accessories and hang these along the wall of your small patio for a decorative and functional accent. Finish off your small patio with colorful cushions in sturdy outdoor fabrics.
