Furnishing a Small Porch

Furnishing a Small Porch

Porches are a great place for enjoying morning coffee, an afternoon cup of tea, or an evening drink to end the day perfectly. For a small porch space, the most simple setup is a pair of chairs with a side table between them. Accommodate more seating on a small porch by using a stylish ottoman. An ottoman can be a coffee table when a tray is placed on top. However, simply move the tray out of the way to create more seating, or even just a place to put your feet up!

Furnishing a Balcony

If you live in an apartment, your balcony may be your only outdoor space to privately enjoy. You will want to maximize your seating and still allow space to walk with ease. Create a cozy corner with a stylish single chair and a small table. If you have a nice long balcony, you can include a lounge chair opposite of your cozy corner. Look for a chaise lounge that reclines into a flat surface with cushions, creating a great space for more than one person to relax.

Furnishing a Patio

Furnishing a Patio

Patios can be a special place to create the best family memories. The focal point of most patios are either a fire pit, or the view of a pool or backyard. Depending on the size of your space, the possibilities could be endless. Placing four chairs in a circle makes the perfect spot to chat around a firepit while roasting s’mores with your favorite people. If you want to have both dining and seating on your patio, an outdoor sofa can create a great divide. Pair this with a couple chairs to make a great conversation area. For a patio overlooking a pool, a couple of chaise lounges placed poolside are a good idea for getting some sun after a dip.

Furnishing a Deck

Furnishing a Deck

Decks pretty much always include some sort of outdoor kitchen, perfect for those summer grilling parties. Most people opt for an outdoor dining set, however, the combination of a single sofa with two chairs on either side and a coffee table in the middle is a classic. A bar can be added to the railing of a narrow deck for added seating, and a great way to enjoy an unobstructed view of your beautiful yard.
