Summer time is finally here and we're looking forward to sunny days and reading out on our balcony or our small patio. Just imagine the relaxing feeling of the sun, a comfy chair, and a nice book! Now, there are a lot of amazing small outdoor space designs out there both big and small, some simple and elegant, some busy and comfy. These just happen to be SOME of our favorite patio designs for summer 2018!
Embrace the boho style with this comfy patio design. Since the space is outdoor, it makes it easier to add a variety of plants you may not be able to keep alive indoor. Always make sure to use outdoor fabrics. It may be summer but they don't call them June showers for nothin'.
The perfect setting for a romantic evening. A hammock is a great idea for anyone with a space that's not too big! Add some fake candles (Best to avoid accidentally lighting your deck on fire) and some wine for a romantic evening with your loved one!
Having Guests over? These benches make the perfect setting for a party. Fill a wicker basket with some blankets for when it gets cold at night! Adding some bulb lights would also make it the perfect scene for when it gets darker.
This is the perfect little reading nook. Get any old mattress (maybe even an inflatable one!) wrap it in some outdoor or waterproof fabric, and grab some outdoor pillows for this cozy setting. Don't forget your lighting! Bulb lights and some candle boxes are a perfect way to light up your summer reading.
Add some color to your new favorite summer spot! The colorful rug and bright seating make this a space suitable for the cheerful summer sun! Accent your balcony with some plants like this vertical garden, for a more natural feel in an industrial space.
Add a little privacy to your outdoor space with some bamboo fencing. Then, add some more natural elements such as wooden furniture and a plant or two to complete the look. Give it a camp feel with some lanterns as well!
This outdoor space is swimming with pattern. Go crazy with rugs (make sure they're outdoor rugs) to add some character to your space. Grab a seat and a pouf for some comfy outdoor reading or a nice conversation with a friend. This are also makes for a perfect craft space!
This is a great DIY space! Use some pallets and some outdoor cushions for some comfortable seating! The best part about using pallets is being able to add as many furnishings as you want! To perfect this boho style DIY, add a variety of plants and some patterned art!
Want a more coastal outdoor space? Try adding some blue and white, this will give it a nautical look (and maybe add some anchors!). Turn this into a DIY by painting some old folding chairs white and adding an outdoor seat cushion for some extra comfort.
Add natural elements to your outdoor space (along with some privacy) with a wooden pallet fence and a beautiful table of plants! You can also double up on storage and living space with some storage benches. A nice patterned rug and coffee table also give this outdoor space a comfortable feel. This is the perfect space to have friends over!
Don't feel like wearing shoes? No problem! Get a rug that covers your entire outdoor space so you can casually walk around in some house slippers or some socks. Add a nice bench and a table for the perfect dining space for one.
