Small Patio Ideas

If you spend a lot of time entertaining friends and family out on the patio, it’s well worth investing in transforming this space into a contemporary outdoor getaway. Having a stylish patio also adds value to your home, if you’re considering selling at any time in the future. While creating your patio vision in a small space can be difficult, with the right furnishings it’s still achievable. Whether you are working with a bluestone, brick, tiles wooden or cement space, here are some great ideas for transforming your patio area:

New York City Styled Terrace

You can turn your tiled patio into an elegant New York City inspired terrace by incorporating an English Ivy trellis, cedar slat screen, magnolia trees and planters of boxwood. Finish the look with lanterns, cushions and a deep slate grey aluminum table with bench seats.

Rustic Tablescape

If you’re working with a wooden floored patio space and prefer an outdoor area that’s simple and rustic, showcasing old world charm, then a tablescape could be exactly what you’re after. You can achieve this look by installing a second-hand wooden table and wooden chairs topped with richly embroidered cushions and adorning the table with wildflowers.

Morocco Inspired Cabana

Limestone floors offer earthy appeal if you’re interested in transforming your patio area into a Morocco-inspired cabana. When combined with a low standing teak table and chairs with white cushions, a brightly coloured rug and a stucco wall draped with staghorn ferns and baskets, the effect is fresh and striking.

California Dreaming

If your outdoor space has wooden floors installed, just add a day bed and cushions in rich natural tones, such as burnt orange and sand, for a modern California boho styled patio area. Pair these with a Turkish style rug, lanterns, low standing table and cheese cloth chairs to create an eclectic and unique space.

Classic Elegance

Patio areas with bluestone floors are easily transformed into a classically elegant space when furnished with a vintage wrought iron table and chairs and an antique lantern. Add a couple of wicker chairs to this setting to perfectly complement the wrought iron furniture and allow for lazy afternoons spent lounging in the sun or reading.

Chic Terrace

Turn your dated brick patio area into a chic terrace by installing striped chaise lounges, English style wicker chairs, lanterns and ceramic potted herbs and other greenery.

Nice and Neutral

A neutral toned patio is contemporary, timeless and suits any type of flooring. Think soft, sand toned couches with rich caramel wooden legs, lattice style chairs complemented by navy or forest green and beige striped cushions and a sleek cocktail table where food and drinks can be casually placed.

Ultra-Modern Outdoor Dining Area

An outdoor dining area is perfect for stone or tiled patio spaces. You can achieve this ultra-modern look by installing wooden boxed bench seats, a gas outdoor heater with a visible flame for warm and aesthetic appeal, candles in the centrepiece and turquoise and lime coloured cushions. This theme is ideal for pool and BBQ areas.
