Your outdoor furniture has a direct effect on how you spend time outside. Choosing outdoor furniture to reflect your lifestyle is important, ensuring the furniture works in your outdoor space is paramount.
When designing your ideal balcony or small courtyard there are three design elements you should consider.
Size, Functionality, Durability
Size is a significant factor when choosing furniture for a small balcony. It is important to pick pieces that don’t overcrowd the space, consider slimline furniture as this will make the space feel larger.
Functionality in small spaces is essential to maximising the use of your balcony. The balcony is often a multifaceted area, not just an entertaining or relaxing space but often a drying area, choosing furniture that can be folded away or lightweight for easy relocation allows the space to accommodate change easily.
Durability is the key to keeping your outdoor area fresh. Investing in furniture designed to withstand the elements that requires minimal maintenance will add years to the life of your outdoor furniture.
