It’s almost summer and we strive to be outside – to our patios, gardens, patios, decks and other spaces, even if tiny – it’s so refreshing and enjoyable! If you have a small deck and don’t know how to decorate it to make the most of that space, this roundup will help you – we’ve put together some ideas to set it up and decorate it to make your stay outdoors enjoyable. Let us begin!
First, consider the size and shape of your deck to figure out how much furniture you’ll be putting there. Second, choose the style you want to see here: boho, contemporary, minimalist, rustic, modern, or any other. Now it’s time to choose your decor and here’s the rule to remember when decorating small spaces: go big! Give preference to large-format pieces of furniture that can accommodate more people and do not clutter up the space. It can be a large sofa or bench with storage space inside and one side or a coffee table and that’s it. Comfortable loungers or chairs are also welcome. If you prefer larger ones, you can add a love seat to them instead of multiple small chairs and stools. If it’s a dining area, consider an L-shaped seat for more people and a cool table or benches.
You can still sit on the deck itself, so some pillows and cushions are great too – they’re not just accessories here, but also partly furniture. Add some rugs here and there that create a cozy feel to the space. Add wall and floor lamps to illuminate the space at night as well. Candle lanterns add a more relaxed and romantic feel, and you can use citronella candles to avoid bugs. Potted plants and greenery refresh the space and make the outdoors feel more welcoming.
