Space-Saving Tips for Your Outdoor Patio Space

Patios, whether big or small, are our very own outdoor oasis at home to enjoy when weather permits. When designing your fixer upper home, we can incorporate patio design to make the most out of your outdoor space. Even if there isn’t as much space as you’d like, we can help to make the most out of your outdoor living space.

Whether it’s your balcony, backyard space or front porch, we can turn any smaller space into a desirable retreat. If you have access to an outdoor space, there is an opportunity there to make it spectacular.

Below are our space-saving tips for your outdoor patio space.

Cozy Sitting Area

Create a cozy sitting area with furniture that fits the space and doesn’t overwhelm it. Design it for how you will use it the most. Will you curl up with a cup of tea and a book each night, or use it to entertain often? Create a cozy sitting area that suits your needs.

Multi-Functional Furniture

Furniture that serves multiple functions will maximize the convenience of the space. Use tables that double as fire pits, benches that double as storage and other multi-functional pieces that serve more than one purpose.


Hardscape your small outdoor patio space to make it feel like a designated outdoor area that mimics an indoor room. Hardscaping with pavers, connecting spaces with stone or creating a stone retaining wall can define the outdoor space and make stand out on its own.

Go Vertical

Going vertical is a good space-saving tip in itself, but there are many opportunities to go vertical when designing an outdoor patio space. Go vertical with landscaping to incorporate greenery or flowers without taking up a lot of the footprint or use a tall storage cabinet to maximize the amount of space while still integrating all the design features you want.
