When your outdoor space is limited, it can be difficult to find the motivation to create a luxurious outdoor living space.  Often times, homeowners will draw the blinds and pretend the backyard doesn’t exist.  This can be true for condo and apartment living too.  Instead of shutting off your outdoor space, transform it.

Small outdoor living can be your home’s greatest asset, if your design is right.  Here are some tips to help you take your outdoor space to a new level of luxury.

Landscaping

You can have the greatest furniture with the best view of the city skyline, but if you don’t bring in natural elements to your landscaping, your space will feel incomplete and unnatural.  Whether you’re working with a balcony or a small yard, you can create a beautiful oasis that easily becomes your favorite place to relax at the end of each day.

Landscaping makes a huge difference in the way you view your space.  You don’t have to add a full garden to make your space feel approachable.  Pressure wash your space, clean and repaint if necessary, and add some green (that doesn’t require a lot of maintenance).

Decorating

Once you’ve got a clean space to work with, it’s time to fill it.  When you have a small space, you want furniture that is sleek, not bulky.  Find pieces that fit your style and create cohesion with your indoor living space.

Here are some pieces that make a small outdoor space pop! From stools and pub tables to club chairs and occasional tables, there are so many options that will keep your outdoor space cozy and classy.

The Cardiff collection has a transitional frame and is designed with a thick walnut resin weave.  This collection shows that a thick weave can work in a small space.  With the tall pub table and stools, the eye is drawn up and it makes a small space seem bigger.

The Moorea club chair and end table are the perfect complement to a small outdoor space.  With an open design, this set doesn’t create a bulky look that creates a cluttered look in a small space.

Staging

Determine the focal point of your outdoor space.  Do you have a fire pit?  Do you have a great view? Do you have absolutely nothing to work it?  Whatever your situation, create a focal point.  Maybe you have the beach as your background.  Position your furniture to allow the setting to be the focal point.  If you don’t have a focal point, create your own.  Position your furniture around a fire table to create an intimate and relaxing setting.

Staging is a crucial part of designing any space.  You can have all of the right supplies, but without proper placement, your space looks cluttered and forgotten.  Transform your small outdoor space into a piece of paradise and enjoy the peace of outdoor living.
