3 tips on how to fit patio furniture in a small space

May 10, 2021

Do you want to create a picturesque outdoor space at your small house or apartment in Calgary? The limited room doesn’t have to limit your Calgary patio furniture set up. You don’t want a cluttered look with too many items, but there are some great ways to add beauty and usability to your patio. Here are the top 3 tips to designing a beautiful area to relax or host a seasonal event in.

 

1. Small and lightweight furniture

When working with a tight space, you want to keep your Calgary patio furniture small and lightweight. Choosing foldable tables and chairs will allow you to easily maneuver the furniture or store it when it’s not in use. Small items won’t overpower the space they are placed in and will still allow you to have room to move around. Smaller, lighter furniture makes your patio area appear more spacious. Consider putting in a glass table since the reflective material will open up space even more. You can place some miniature lights around it to add a little extra ambience to your outdoor oasis.

 

2. Double duty

Pick out Calgary patio furniture that can take on two purposes. A great option could be a table with a built-in fire pit. You can use this table for playing cards or eating your meal then switch on the fire to keep you warm as the sun begins to set. You might even want to roast some marshmallows over the flame, just be careful not to drop any! With patio furniture that offers dual purpose, you get what you want without having to buy several different patio pieces. Too many items can easily clutter up your space or worse yet, not even fit.

 

3. Hanging items

Give your patio a warm, tropical vibe by purchasing hanging plants and flowers. Miniature strawberry plants and trailing petunias are some great options. You can keep these items off the ground by attaching them to a trellis or arbour. You won’t have to worry about smashing your foot into that extra accent piece. It is always essential to measure the entire space you are working with before you purchase patio furniture. Make sure you measure the length, width, and height of the area you want to use. The associates at a Calgary furniture store will be able to guide you to the ideal patio setup if you have proper measurements. You can have lots of Calgary furniture choices even if your space is small. In fact, you can create a quaint and cozy atmosphere with just a little know-how.
