There’s no better time than the present to embrace your outdoor space. Whether you have a tiny terrace, a petite porch, or a cozy balcony, making the most out of your exterior small outdoor living space can add immeasurable value to wherever you call home, all year long. From planning the layout of your lighting, placing outdoor rugs, or curating a unique planter-scape, we have tips and tricks to help you get your small patio in shape to enjoy all year long.
When It Comes To Patio Sets, Materials Matter
Whether your outdoor space is mountainside or seaside, enjoying your outdoor space should be just that - enjoyable. backyard lounging shouldn’t come with worrying about rust, warping, fading, or staining. The materials that make up your patio furniture should be able to stand up to rain, temperature changes, direct sun, snow, and wind - no matter the size. All our furniture pieces are made from rustproof aluminum, fade & splinter-proof outdoor wicker, and premium outdoor fabrics. Even if you live in an area that experiences drastic temperature changes, our patio furniture sets are designed to hold up - year after year.
Just like shopping for your living room sofa, outdoor furniture quality is important. While the materials are a bit different (solid wood versus metal, etc.), knowing what to look for. Not to brag, but our design teams have spent years designing and innovating ways to mimic the comfort of your living room sofa over to your patio sofa. You don’t sit on metal slats inside, why would you want to? We’ve integrated a breathable and strong mesh sling fabric support under each seat to offer the most comfortable lounging experience–with no metal bars jamming into you.
You’ll cross the rubicon once you experience SunVilla Home’s patio furniture sets - they are that comfortable. Our outdoor sets are made for how you live, and where you live.
The Size Of Your Patio Space Matters
We’ve taken a poll, and the vast majority of us don’t have acres of land with a 1200-square-foot paved patio. In fact, when it comes to outdoor space across the country, most of the population has very small backyards, balconies, or porches. Just like the inside of your home, the size of your furniture matters - in fact, it can make or break the entire look and feel of your space. Choosing furniture that fits the size and shape of your patio space is crucial in achieving the *chefs kiss* perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors.
Not all patio furniture is alike, there are sofa sets, conversation sets, small sectionals, loveseats, fire pit sets, and, of course, patio dining sets. Most small patio spaces can fit one set - so when you’re shopping, think about what you want to use your outdoor space for the most. Most can get away with a smaller sectional and a table - but if you get modular patio furniture - your options are virtually endless! Creating multiple configurations with a set of easily arrangeable chairs opens up a world of opportunity. In turn, you can create the illusion of a larger patio by grouping sectional chairs for different occasions.
When you think about your favorite outdoor spaces - what do they all have in common? If we had to guess, we’d say that they all can be utilized day to night. Adding outdoor accessories is a simple way to not only incorporate your own personal style into any space but also allow you to take full advantage of your investment from sun up to sundown! When it comes to adding accessories, we suggest layering until you find the perfect mixture of functional and fashionable. String lights are great for setting the mood, while solar lamps provide some much-needed illumination to brighten things up. Throw in a few citronella candles, and you’ve got a bug-free space with a familiar outdoor scent.
Who doesn’t love a good throw pillow? Accent pillows can take your outdoor furniture from normal to extraordinarily you. With pops of color, texture, and patterns, adding your own flair to any space creates a welcoming aura. When there’s a chill in the air, throw blankets are a necessity! By layering in knitted throws, you open your outdoor space to season-after-season use. Finally, lay down some roots with a rug that’s designed for the outside. These few decorative accents will make your outdoor space feel like a true extension of your home.
The ultimate “accessory” for any outdoor entertaining space (we hate to say accessory because we believe they’re versatile and oh-so essential), a fire pit is a must! Our Denali Fire Pit features a wide surface around the glass-beaded fire pit that offers ample space for glasses and snack trays. Add on a tank cover and instantly upgrade your entire set with a coordinating side table that conceals a standard 20 lb. propane tank. When not in use, a flush lid is included to cover the fire pit to give even more surface space for entertaining.
Location. Location. Location.
The only issue your outdoor area should face is how to spend as much time outside as possible. A seating arrangement designed to fit into your life makes for the perfect place to start creating your own personal escape. So if you have a great outdoor space and live in a damp or overly sunny area, do your research. Weather-permitted enjoyment is a thing of the past, with compact dining, seating, and lounging sets made from rust-resistant aluminum and performance fabric cushions. With the right materials, fabrics, and easy care and maintenance, patio furniture can withstand any kind of weather. From torrential downpours to light snowfalls, our entire assortment comes complete with protective covers that are ready for any conditions - from top to bottom (accessories included!)
Your outlook on your small space may be skewed based on location, design options, and styling choices, but no matter where you live there’s a way to make your backyard a paradise. The foundational pieces of your space tie into the comfort level and look you want to achieve! Take creative liberties around weather-resistant materials that were made to stand out or blend in. Personalizing your space to enjoy all year round means easily navigating details that accentuate outdoor-ready seating. No matter where or how you live your outdoor space should be designed with comfort, care, and durability.
