How to get the most out of your small outdoor space…

Outdoor space should be made valuable in any small space. Whether you have a garden, a balcony, patio or terrace there are plenty of ways to utilise the space to its potential for it to become an elegant & tranquil space.

Colourful furniture

Any outside space can be made more interesting with a touch of colour. This especially goes for your outside space. Add bright and vibrant colours to the space to give it a new life. It doesn’t even have to match, you can mix ’n’ match the colours such as pinks and oranges.

Objects of interest

Placing objects at the end of the garden or on your balcony act as a focus point and trick the eye to make the outside space look larger than it is as it gives the eye something to focus on. These objects of interest can be anything from a piece of furniture to a brightly coloured plant in a planter. Gardens will benefit more from the pieces of furniture, rather a balcony will benefit more from a planter due to limited space.

Fold away furniture

Fold away furniture is a great way to utilise your outside space during all seasons. You can have it out when you need it or fold it away when you don’t.

Mirrored Illusion

Mirrors are not just for inside spaces, they are now becoming a big fashion statement in outdoor spaces and they work in the same way as they do inside by bouncing light around the space and reflecting the greenery or plants which gives it an infinite feel.
