Adding a little relaxation to an everyday routine shouldn’t be tricky. With the right small furniture, any tiny outdoor space can be transformed into a romantic getaway, even for the busiest families. Add a weatherproof cushioned bench to the porch—or even on the balcony, for condos or apartments—and instantly enjoy a little bit of nature right at home. Fortunately, there are plenty of wonderful outdoor dining options from Brown Jordan, Lauren Ralph Lauren and even Martha Stewart Collection to make designing a small space simple.
When the schedule is totally packed, and everyone is busy running from work or school, it’s important to eat together as a way to regroup and catch up. Small furniture for any size space is a great way to lure the kids to dinner. A café table in sleek iron is a great option for small porches and patios. A similar style will withstand rain and wind, and require very little maintenance.
Entertaining friends—even outdoors—should be just as simple as serving a small clan. Invest in a set of outdoor chairs, and pepper them throughout any green area. Use colorful cushions to make your new furniture appropriate for any occasion, and never worry about seating arrangements!
Just because some families can’t get enough fresh air doesn’t mean they can’t also be protected from the sun’s harmful rays. In fact, a sturdy, but small patio umbrella is a great way to keep everyone shaded. Keep chilled drinks and healthy snacks beneath a similar style to ensure the little ones take enough breaks in the shade.
No matter what your personal home decorating style—from fun and original to industrial and utilitarian—there’s a set of small furniture to exceed any set of expectations. Throw a small rope hammock between two trees for an added element of playfulness to any space, and your home will become a favorite hangout.
