Create a Perfect Patio

Add a fireplace

Add entertainment value to your patio with a fireplace or fire pit. A fire is a great way to add extra light, warmth, and ambience at night.

Create a lookout deck

Create a lookout deck by arranging furniture to face the view. Position the components of your patio with the view as the center.

Hang a hammock

Hammocks provide comfortable alternatives to regular furniture. Choose natural materials and neutral colors.

Keep it simple

Go for a minimalistic design. Leave an open space in the center and position any furniture along the outside perimeter.

Decorate with cushions

Use cushions to add color or a theme. Be bold with bright colors and animal prints or bring a gentle vibe with pastels and linen covers.

Small Rental Balcony Makeover: Before and After

When I moved to LA from the East coast, I was determined to make the most out of my small balcony to enjoy the beautiful weather year round, even though I'm renting. It was a lot of work but it was well worth it: not only has it given me more usable square footage, it's also provided a much better view to look at from the inside of my apartment!
