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