Small Space, Big Impact

A small exterior space can function as the ultimate invitation to indulge in some quality time with oneself. Decorating and arranging the space could present some challenges since the space is small or might have unconventional dimensions. Still, a small off-bedroom balcony or side area can serve to be a soothing reading nook or an outdoor dining space when the weather is good. Bringing in versatile pieces with a dual function or can be easily stored to compromise with the space can have incredible appeal. Let’s take a look at a few options for a small space with a big impact.

Daybed Dreaming

The daybed is unexpected and a delightfully different fixture that offers a sense of elegance and prestige to a living space. This elevated furnishing is generous in its dimensions and crafted from materials that can make a bold impact. The Cabo Teak Daybed features an arm on one side; there is a right and left version like an outdoor loveseat, to make the piece easy to arrange against a wall. Its honey-toned grade-a teak wood frame and Neptune™ cushion fabrics provide the most comfortable and sustainable elements for a long-lasting piece. You can fully recline yourself there when you’re enjoying time alone, or you’ll have seating for guests when they visit. The Cabo Teak Daybed draws in the eye and acts as the focal point of the space. Pair this outdoor daybed with cool accents like the tall Crossword Teak Side Table and some vertical planters like the Bishop Square Concrete Planters to provide a sense of privacy.

Alfresco Dining

Indulge in lingering a little bit longer, taking in a sunset or observing the last melting frost from the night, an appreciation for transitory moments that are meant to be enjoyed. An alternative dining area can add variety to mealtimes that have become stagnant since being home, and cooking has increased and has taken a more involved spot in our lives. Delegating an outdoor dining space can offer a sense of escapism that offers a new type of dining without leaving your home. The Sherman Bistro Table is a small dining table that can easily situate into a space and is made from reclaimed teak with a light washed finish. Pair it with the Nairobi Woven Side Chair in Black that features an open, breathable weave and acts as a cool contrast to the table. This compact outdoor dining set transports you to another place and time; enjoying meals or a cup of coffee outside your four walls will elevate your daily routine. Coordinate this café table and chair set with the Suzi Outdoor Stools in multiples. The stools can function as an alternative seating option for guests or to display potted plants or other accents that gives the space a personal touch.

It Takes Two

When trying to get the most out of your space, choosing versatile and classic pieces never fails. Pieces that have the ability to adapt over time or have dual functions are best when you have a smaller space to furnish. Creating a space that offers both relaxation and dining will require some creative thinking and perhaps using pieces in unconventional ways. The Coast Teak Outdoor Sectional Corner in a left and right variation is a piece of the sectional, like a small patio sofa, but works really well in a small space arranged near a wall. Its large proportions provide ample seating for when guests come to visit.

Keep the space simple by pairing it with the Kuba Teak Outdoor Coffee Table, so you still have a little space left. Having a folding dining table and chairs is a convenient option that is there when you need it and can be stored when you do not. The Square Teak Folding Table is a space-saving patio table and, when paired with the El Fresco Dining Chairs, is a classic combination and perfect for compact spaces that should be enjoyed at their full capacity.
