Inspiring Ideas for Small Outdoor Spaces

Summer is on the horizon, so it's time to get your outdoor space ready for the warmer weather. Short on space? We’ve got some inspiration to help you get the most out of your garden, so you can create your own outdoor oasis.


Multifunctional Spaces

Firstly, create a space that you can use for multiple activities. Combine the best of relaxing and dining with the Weston corner sofa set, perfect for sitting back and enjoying drinks with friends, or soaking up the summer sun. If you're looking for something with a little more seating, then Aston seats 9 and is complete with a dining table, perfect for those al fresco dinners.

Compact Furniture

When it comes to choosing furniture for your outdoor space, selecting smaller items will give the illusion of a bigger garden. Our bistro sets are the perfect solution for small gardens that offer a convenient place to dine al fresco or sit and read your latest book, combine with an outdoor rug to bring indoor living outdoors.


Alternatively, a rattan cube dining set is perfect for gardens that are short on space. Easily seat 8 or 10 people round the table, then once the evening is over neatly tuck it all away into a compact cube. 


Prepare for the Weather

Enjoy your space come rain or shine by ensuring you have all eventualities covered. Add a parasol to shelter from that unexpected rain shower or to create a shady spot on those hot summers days.

And when the sun goes down, make sure your space is extra cosy with an LED parasol. Good lighting is a must for those summer evenings, just add some candles and a throw and your night is complete!


Set the Mood

With your small space prepped for the sun, you now just need to make sure the ambience is just right. Look no further than our Summer Vibes playlist, perfect for those afternoons in the garden, drinks with friends or dining al fresco.
