When it comes to garden spaces, bigger is by no means better. If you’ve got a balcony, patio or small garden, you can create a beautiful outdoor space that you love with a little bit of planning and inspiration. Whilst we can’t design your garden for you, we can give you some great ideas to help get your imagination going and how to make the most out of the space you’ve got.
Add a little bit of Tuscany to your outdoor space with a rustic bamboo shelter. This style of covering will bring shade in the summer and protection in the windier weather. If you want to add some plants to your space, then it will also act as a trellis for climbing plants. You can easily add this style to any outdoor space.
Some freestanding furniture can be bulky and take up a lot of room. Maximise your space by incorporating some fixed seating and benches into your garden design. To add a splash of colour, incorporate some Moroccan-style cushions and blankets. Not all gardens have to be green, and the red tones will complement your garden features nicely.
You can’t beat a bit of outdoor dining on a warm summer’s evening. If you want to add in an outdoor dining set, then think carefully about the space you have and the type of furniture you’re going to buy. There’s no point in having a large dining set taking up all of the limited room you have. Once you’ve found the set that’s right for your space, add an elegant tablecloth and some feature candles to turn your outdoor dining space into a luxurious one.
Adding warmth, ambience and light, a fire pit will bring so much to a garden. They’re available in a lot of different shapes and sizes, so there’s bound to be one that will work in your garden space, no matter how small. They make a great focal point, which you can then use as a feature point for the rest of your design.
Whilst we don’t necessarily mean having a cascading waterfall in your garden space, you can get some great minimalist water features that are perfect for whatever space may be available to you. A water feature will make your garden a place of relaxation and peace and they make great focal points, as well as helping to create a tranquil environment.
