7 Ways to Dress Up a Small Deck

7 Ways to Dress Up a Small Deck

With the weather getting warmer, I’m seriously tempted to spend all my time lounging in the sunshine instead of cooped up indoors. I could grab a beach blanket and head to the park, but sometimes two blocks is farther than you want to walk, am I right? (Especially when you don’t feel like changing out of your PJs.) So it occurred to me that I should spruce up my deck, small though it may be! Urban living has its perks, but a surplus of square footage usually isn’t one of them. Right now all I’ve got out there is a tiny table and a couple of dusty chairs, so I went in search of inspiration…

How adorable is this hanging chair (and that disco ball votive)?


As you can see, just because a deck lacks square footage doesn’t mean it can’t be a stylish and inviting hangout spot! I think a colorful patterned rug, lantern lights and some comfy pillows are in my future. How would you decorate your small outdoor space?

    • Thanks, Kiki! I’m so glad you enjoyed this post 🙂 And I am in love with that sectional too! Sadly it rains too much here for that to be practical for me…

    • I’m so glad it inspired you! I really want to step it up a notch myself…it’s supposed to hit 80 later this week so that might be the perfect motivation 🙂

  1. Looks like we had the same idea! Oh Seattle with your tiny balconies. I love your picks. I’ll take one, two, four, and five for myself, thanks. I also love that you’re attracted to such bright colors. 🙂
