Does it ever feel like decorating your outdoor spaces requires a lot more time and effort than your interior spaces? Perhaps the reason for this is the size and shape of the space you're working with. Whether you have several acres, or a few square feet of patio, the outdoor patio furniture you choose should be based around the vision you have for your space to keep it functional and beautiful.

Large Spaces

There are many benefits to having a spacious yard. However, someone with a lot of space can find themselves struggling with backyard landscaping ideas just as much as someone with a small space. Depending on the purpose you'd like your outdoor space to serve, consider breaking up your yard into several areas that are more manageable. If entertaining is your goal, consider a large dining set for an outdoor patio, some comfortable outdoor chairs or chaise loungers to surround a fire pit, or bright, oversized loungers for around your pool.

Small Spaces

Small backyard design is actually a lot of fun. While you may not be able to allot different furniture pieces to several different spaces, you can be more creative and choose pieces that are functional and compliment the space. To create an inviting space for guests, consider a small seating area or raised bar table with stools. Ottomans are excellent for adding extra seating and storage, while less bulky furniture will allow the space to feel more open and not so cramped.

Awkward Shapes

Perhaps the most daunting space to face off against is one that is awkwardly shaped. When you have a space that is broken up in an odd way, or not balanced in the size and shape, your creativity can really take over. Choose outdoor furniture that you love, and break the space up into several smaller spaces, or maybe consider one larger space that's multi-functional. Just like with a smaller space, functionality is key when it comes to an awkwardly shaped yard. If it suits your style, consider furniture pieces that are just as unique as the space you're working with, and you're bound to create something that'll make everyone else wish they had an awkwardly shaped yard too. Whether you're looking for help with a large space, or on the hunt for landscaping ideas for a small yard, we can help you find the best pieces to suit your space.
