If you have a small decking space at your place, we have just the perfect design ideas to make that deck of yours the coziest place around the house. Following are some of the best decking ideas for small spaces.


If you have a small deck space, make sure to scale down the furniture. However, this does not mean that you need to remove every single furniture piece from the deck. It is all about placement. You can take a pair of sofas and create a cozy corner with a center table, while the rest of the space can be decorated with a variety of different plants.

Using Verticality

If you have an upright space, make use of it. Place wallpaper on the walls and cover parts of it with wooden shelves. You can make the entire vertical wall green as well. However, make sure it is the only part of designing that you address. On the deck itself, simply put a couple of chairs and a simply table that go with the surroundings.

Terra Cotta Pots

You can make use of the Terra Cotta Pots. The best way to make a place cozy and elegant in design is to put plants like roses and Lavender into terra cotta pots and spread them around the border of your deck. The trick is to use plants that will not grow to become too big to handle. Once you have the borders covered, set-up a nice dining area for two so the already small place does not get crowded.

Make the Most of Spacing

If you are not a fan of using plants, simply use other furniture smartly. The best way to make use of a small deck is to attach a bench to the wall. This creates a lot of space where you can place a narrow table and leave the rest of the place empty. If there is a wall, you can use it as a background that overlooks the entire decking.

Focus on Green

Another great way to design your small deck space is to use green chairs. It is not a rule to add additional furniture. Just place two green chairs that blend in with a few green plants in the background. Place a few cushions onto the sides to enjoy a cozier feeling.
