While decorating a small patio poses some challenges, you can turn a small patio into a lovely outdoor space for relaxation, gardening or more. There are several small patio decorating ideas. Here are some of them. You can turn your small patio into a container garden. Container gardens add a stylized feel to a patio of any size. Terracotta planters, arranged in clusters in corners or along walls allow a wide range of foliage to be displayed. Containers come in hundreds of designs to match and complement any style of patio. When placed at different heights, container gardens add a feeling of spacious depth to a patio. And you can also choose the right furniture. Tasteful furniture added to a patio makes even the smallest area become a warm, enjoyable place to relax. A small table with one or two chairs makes the patio a place to enjoy a drink or a meal outdoors. Furniture located on one side of the patio with a grill located on the other creates a place to congregate when company visits. Grilling and dining are possible on the smallest of patios.
Another small patio decorating idea is hanging lights. Hanging lights or lanterns brighten up any patio, adding quick but elegant decorative elements. Hang lights from the house behind the patio or the awning over the patio to illuminate the area without taking up valuable space. Lights placed on the railing of the patio create depth, making a small patio feel larger.
