People who have small patios usually find it hard to decide on what furniture to choose for it, how to organize everything, and what decorations to have lying around, because they feel like they are restricted by the space, and they worry about overcrowding it.
If you have a small patio and you want to make the best out of it, you should read the following lines to get some useful tips on how to decorate it.
Use cheerful colors
One of the few things that can save a small place from feeling restrictive is to fill it with different decorations and furniture pieces that have playful colors.
A great choice to go with for the furniture is a combination of red and white, because the color white gives an expansive feel, and the color red is simply cheery and delightful, putting everyone in a good mood.
To make it truly cheerful and beautiful, make sure to put as many flowers and plants as you can, because they bring life to any space they are placed in. When it comes to flowers, go with those that have playful colors like Jasmine, Hibiscus, Angel’s Trumpet, and Angelwing begonia.
Be smart about the furniture
Of course, due to the fact that the patio is small, you can’t afford to put in all the furniture you would like, but rather stick to functionality and importance.
Our advice to you is to go simple, and place only a small round table and 2-4 chairs, depending on the available space and how many people you know will use them at once, being more than enough furniture to go with for the small patio. After all, you don’t want to overcrowd it and make it feel smaller than it is.
Hang a mirror
Mirrors can be used as more than the objects in which you check to see if you look good in those new clothes, because due to the fact that they reflect the images in front of them mirrors can easily distort the sense of sight, making it look like a place is bigger than it actually is. Therefore, make sure to place a nice and big mirror on your small patio to make it look like the patio is bigger.
It makes for a great decoration that will definitely have all your guests applauding you for your creativity. In addition, if you feel like doing your hair outside, now you can do that because you have a mirror to look in.
