If you are a happy owner of a patio, even a small one, this is great – it will be your outdoor oasis! Most homeowners find designing and decorating a small patio rather tricky but don’t worry, you can do it! We are here to help you with some tips and ideas to make your small or even tiny patio the best place in the world.

Styles And Colors

Decide what décor style you like most of all and stick to it; many homeowners prefer to rock something more relaxed and neutral for outdoors like farmhouse, modern casual or Scandinavian but of course you can choose whatever you like: vintage, shabby chic, minimalist or any other. Choose your color scheme according to the style but keep in mind that small spaces look better in neutrals and pastels as light colors make them look bigger.

Materials And Textures

To make your space look catchy and cool, especially if it’s done in neutrals, you can rock various types of materials: wood, plywood, stone, brick, concrete, metal, wicker and so on. Go for greenery walls, climbing plants that will save your space or at least some potted plants but don’t clutter your patio too much.

Furniture And Décor

Furniture in a small patio should be functional: think if you can make a storage sofa or a bench with storage and incorporate some more solutions like that. Stick to the style and color scheme you’ve chosen and go for some proper décor to make your space cooler: rugs, pillows, various blankets and candle lanterns.
