The best furniture for small spaces to decorate your terrace

It may seem like you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to buying furniture for your outdoor space, especially when space is at a premium. But turn a small balcony or patio into a mini oasis for lounging and dining. East possible—with the right patio furniture for small spaces. If you’re wondering if you have enough space on your patio to outfit your space with the outdoor design trends projected for this year, we asked the experts for tips on how to make a space of any size look luxurious.

When shopping for small spaces, the experts at Fermob advise: “Look for pieces that aren’t too bulky and can be both visually appealing but also functional.” If you’re working with a particularly small footprint, less is more: it can be as simple as buying a single comfortable, weatherproof outdoor chair!

What to consider before buying your deck

Designing your outdoor space is all about combining function (space, use and care) with your personal style, says Lindsay Foster, senior director of merchandising at Frontgate. Here are some starting points for both.

Space out

First, calculate the square footage you are working with. Then dive into what you want to achieve…

A function

What do you hope to do in your space? If entertainment is a primary goal, for example, you might want a small set or a few chairs that spin, giving guests the freedom to change direction and engage with everyone. If you plan on lounging solo, a larger daybed may do the trick. You might also want to think about how you’re going to store your furniture: “Find pieces that work for you,” advises Jordan England, CEO and co-founder of Industry West. “Pieces that serve multiple purposes are ideal, and chairs that stack? Our favourite.”


Next, it’s time to consider the look. Do you prefer aluminum, wicker or teak frames? From handcrafted rust-resistant aluminum and hand-woven weather-resistant wicker to durable high-grade teak, you have the choice of durable performance materials.


    Since the furniture will be exposed to the elements, you also need to consider its strength. “Understand your lifestyle and required maintenance,” warns England. If you find yourself in a place with harsh elements, for example, opt for ultra-durable materials like aluminum.

    At the end of the line : There are ways to make your small space less of a burden and more of a low-lift creative project for your garden. Bistro tables, slim bar carts, stools and stackable options will allow for flexible entertaining in even the smallest of spaces.

    So now, time to shop! With the help of our experts, we have found functional, high-quality outdoor furniture that will easily fit into your small patio. Shop the best furniture suitable for small spaces that is sure to make an impact wherever you put it – even the little things make a big difference.
