Small Garden, Big Impact: 5 Design Ideas for Small Outdoor Spaces

Are you looking to do more with your outdoor space? Are you struggling for garden inspiration? At Stove Supermarket, we’re all about helping you make the most out of your garden space and sharing our best tips to help you do just that.

Designing a garden with limited space can often be challenging. However, when you’ve got the design nailed, it’s also incredibly satisfying. A well-designed small garden can be a relaxing and welcoming space to host friends and family during the summer months. In this blog, we'll guide you through our best design ideas to help you transform your small garden into a beautiful outdoor oasis.

Create a focal point

To begin planning your outdoor space, we first need to think about a centre piece. A focal point. The star of the show. The focal point creates purpose in your garden and gives your guests something to gather around. A great way to do this would be to invest in an outdoor fire pit or fireplace. At Stove Supermarket we have a range of sizes to ensure the item you choose compliments your space perfectly. Take a look at the Morso Ignis Fire Pit – an affordable choice to create that cosy feature in the garden. If you’re looking for something more high-end and premium, try the Pacific Lifestyle Cosiloft Lounge Table Fire Pit, a beautiful piece that adds that chic feel to your garden.

Use vertical space

Using vertical space is a great way to decorate your garden if you have limited space – it adds something a little bit unique. Why not try adding hang planters to your walls or if you want to try a bit of DIY, install shelves to add colourful flowers to brighten up the space. There are many options when it comes to utilising vertical space. Consider using old ladders for instance. It’s something unique and is an easy way to add architectural interest. Tip: wrap plants around the frame to structure the space and add dimension.

Choose the right furniture

Choosing furniture that is appropriately sized for your garden is crucial to maximising the small space you have. We highly recommend taking a look at the Pacific Lifestyle Rio 3 piece set. Something as simple as a small table and chair set can elevate the space and add a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the area without taking up too much room. This 3-piece is available in blue, black, red and white, so if you are looking to add a bit of colour outside, opt for the Pacific Lifestyle Rio set. This set is not only comfortable, and high-quality but it’s fit for all year round. With its durable, synthetic weave and UV protection, it’s a piece that is completely weatherproof – perfect for the garden.

Use lighting

Outdoor lighting can create ambiance and make your space feel bigger. On those summer evenings, lighting creates a welcoming atmosphere for your friends and family to enjoy and feel relaxed in your space. Solar-powered lights or string lights are great options when working with small spaces.

Add greenery

Even if you don't have a lot of space, adding plants and flowers can bring your outdoor space truly to life. Adding small features like hanging baskets or a small herb garden can change up the feel instantly. Consider artificial plants. They’re low maintenance, effective, low cost and gives you the greener look you were hoping for with minimum effort.
