Here are some small patio makeover ideas to help you transform even the tiniest outdoor space into a summer haven…
With space at a premium in cities, having an outdoor space is becoming a luxury. So, if you have a small patio or balcony, here are some ideas to help you make the most of that space this summer:
Throw some shade
Shade yourself from the unforgiving summer sun and boost your privacy with a garden umbrella or two, like this Design House Push Up Umbrella in stone (2 700mm) from Builder’s Warehouse.
Take a seat
Enjoy your morning coffee out on a bistro patio set and put your feet up after a long day on a garden bench.
Finding seating to suit your small patio transforms it into an outdoor living and dining area.
Dine in style outdoors with this five-piece Indo teak patio set (R3 255) from Decofurn or add a splash of colour to a tiny patio with this space-saving cobalt blue bistro patio set (R1 200) from Mr Price Home.
When you don’t have a garage or garden shed, a storage bench is a practical storage solution for gardening tools and even the kids’ outdoor toys.
A classic example is this Keter Hudson storage bench from Builder’s Warehouse.
