24+ Ways to Decorate and Furnish a Small Deck
- It's almost summer and we are striving outdoors - to our patios, gardens, terraces, decks and other spaces, even if they are tiny - it's so refreshing and pleasant! If you have a small deck and don't know how to decorate it to squeeze maximum of this space this roundup will help you - we've gathered some ideas to furnish and decorate it to make your staying outdoors enjoyable. Let's get started!
First of all, consider the size and shape of your deck to find out how much furniture you are going to place there. Second, decide on the style you wanna see here: boho, contemporary, minimalist, rustic, modern or any other. Now it's time to choose your furnishings and here you should remember the rule of decorating all the small spaces: go big! Prefer large scale furniture pieces that can accommodate more people and won't clutter the space. It can be a large sofa or bench with storage inside and a side or coffee table, and that's it. Comfortable loungers or chairs are welcome, too, again - prefer larger ones, maybe add a loveseat to them instead of multiple small chairs and stools. If it's a dining zone, consider having an L-shaped seat to accommodate more people and a cool table or go for benches around it.
You can still sit on the deck itself, so some cushions and pillows are also great - they aren't only accessories but partly furniture here. Add some rugs here and there, they will create a cozy feel in the space, add wall and floor lamps to illuminate the space at night, too. Candle lanterns will create a more relaxed and romantic feel, and you may use citronella candles to avoid any bugs. Potted plants and greenery will refresh the space and make it feel more welcoming and outdoorsy.
