10 Best Small Patio Ideas
You don’t need a lot of space to make a statement, just check out these inspiring small patio ideas.
Maximize your small patio space with hidden storage. Purchase a patio bench or table that doubles as a place for storing extra pillows, throws or even gardening tools.
If you don’t have a lot of room to decorate with multiple pieces of decor, add a brilliant splash of color with an outdoor rug.
Nothing screams small patio like collapsible furniture. A foldable table is the ideal way to save space.
Potted Plants on Wall
If you want to surround yourself with plants while you read a book on your patio but don’t have the floor space for the pots, grow vertically! The sky is the limit, literally. Simply fasten some potted plants to a wall or fence.
Vertical Garden Privacy Screen
Just because your patio hugs the neighbor’s house or looks out onto the street doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of privacy. Simply decorate a privacy screen with vines or lush plants.
If the only thing your patio really has room for is a table and chairs, but you want some greenery, simply combine your needs with a terrarium coffee table. Martha Stewart has a great DIY project for you to follow.
Fire Pit Table
Want an outdoor fire pit and a table to sit at? Combine your needs for two small patio ideas in one with a fire pit that converts into a square patio table.
It’s a bench, a 2-seat bench, a table, a love seat and even a chair with an end table, all in one piece of furniture! That’s an efficient use of space.
DIY Painted Patio Floor
No room to make a statement with a lot of decor and greenery? No problem! Paint the floor a fun design that will bring major life to any patio, no matter the size.
