Are you wondering how to create your small backyard into your dream patio? Whether you have a wooden, stone or a cemented space, with the right design and decoration, you can transform it into a modern, stylish patio. In this blog post, we’ve put together three simple yet smart outdoor decorating ideas.
Accent with Artwork
Artwork and sculptures can add a distinctive look to your patio. Be it an artistic sconce, copper or canvas artwork suitable for outdoor decoration, outdoor wall art can serve as a focal point and add a thoughtful detail to your patio.

Decorate Your Trees with Light
To turn your space into an incredible hanging out area for your friends, family, and guests at night, use trees to hang different types of light. From small light bulbs, Christmas lights, electric lanterns to candles, there are several creative ways to decorate the trees and create a beautifully lit ambience. Simply wrap up the trunk and some branches of the trees with string lights.
Perfect the Seating Area
For a small patio, you can arrange to seat maximum six people with a grilling area. This makes designing the seating area somewhat tricky in limited space. Here are a few suggestions to make the most out of your petite patio.
- Choose Proper Furniture and Placement: Choose space saving furniture like built-in benches, especially when there isn’t enough space to place chairs around the outdoor dining table.
If you don’t have the space for built-in benches or chairs, then position your patio furniture in such a way so that there’s no wasted space behind them. The best way to do this is to place the furniture in a corner along the perimeter of the patio. This will ensure that you can use the remaining space or the other corner to place a small table or chairs to turn it into a small dining area. You can also include a backless ottoman for added seating.
However, if you don’t want to add a dining table, you can decorate the space with comfy lounge chairs and a side table.
- Use Bright Colours: Throw in some bright colours to spruce up your patio furniture and brighten the appearance of the space against the exterior walls of your home. Select bright reds, greens, and blues for cushion covers.
- Create a Private Area: Use a patio umbrella to bring in a comfortable shade during the daytime. If you have a lot of trees around the patio to provide shade, you can use some flowing curtains to up the style and add privacy. The curtains will enhance the usability of the space during the evening too.
Make your small patio a central attraction of your outdoors with these ideas. Depending on the style you want to create for your space, think of some interesting ways to design your patio and make a style statement!
