Just because your outdoor space is on the smaller side, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it special. With thoughtful styling and well-chosen furniture, your patio, balcony, or tiny garden can become a spectacular retreat. In this blog post, we delve into transforming limited outdoor spaces into a haven of comfort and style using the Lifestyle Garden collections available here at Shackletons Home and Garden.
Mastering the Art of Small Space Design
Employing strategic design elements can make your small outdoor area appear and feel larger. Mirrors can provide a sense of depth, while vertical features like planters or trellises can give the illusion of height. A light colour palette can also help, making the area feel more open and spacious. Considering versatile furniture that caters to your needs while also optimising space will help massively in styling your outdoor area.
Selecting the Perfect Furniture
The art of mastering small outdoor spaces hinges on pairing functionality with a welcoming atmosphere. Furniture selection for small spaces requires an emphasis on scale and practicality and avoiding overwhelming your area with large pieces.
