Due to rising building and land costs, along with the advent of modern conveniences such as air conditioning, large wrap around porches and flowing lawns like our grandparents had have fallen by the wayside. Many homeowners or renters find themselves with only a small balcony, porch or patio as a means to enjoy their great outdoors. However, decorating a small patio or balcony area can be even more fun than dealing with a huge porch.
A smaller space is much more intimate for gatherings or private reflection, and can be much more inexpensive to furnish and decorate than a large space. Whether you are hoping to use your small patio for entertaining or are yearning for a private place to unwind, these small patio ideas can help you make the most of your small space.
