5 Inspirational Small Apartment Patios

For those that reside in apartments, and are lucky enough to have a small patio or terrace, decorate those spaces to extend the living space of your small abode.

This space is really small. But the pink Adirondack chair makes it shine. Add a few plants and sit back and enjoy the view.

This one is larger. Able to accommodate two comfy wicker chairs and a table. What a nice spot to sit with a friend or loved one and have a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

In a sprawling urban area, you can still create your own little piece of heaven with seating and flowers.

A spot for one, with container plantings and a table with candles. Wouldn't it be nice to sit out there at night with flickering candlelight?

A bench with a cushion that sets the stage for a pretty rug in a certain shade of blue. Add some plants and a lantern with a candle inside. And you've got all you need in one little spot.

Some of us are apartment dwellers. This doesn't mean we can't enjoy the outdoors. 

If you have a patio or terrace, dress it up and make it a space that you love. 


  1. These are all beautiful, wonderful and I love them all!!
    I noticed one of the ads on your sidebar is Kinnucan's. The company was started in my hometown, right out the back door of where I work and has expanded nationally!!Their home office is still here and so is the founder's family. Coincidence!!

  2. These are all pretty spaces. I need to redo my patio, it could use some sprucing up.

  3. Thanks for this! We are moving to an apartment with a balcony so I'm really inspired now with these great ideas

  7. I would love to sit and drink diet coke on any of these patios.. Just beautiful!!
    I loved the pink chair. My husband made me 2 of them.. They are white right now. but I think I just might paint them again. Thanks for the photos.
    Happy Easter.

  8. So pretty, Brenda - love seeing all the beautiful flowers and greenery, too! Happy weekend!

  13. Beautiful and cozy ideas. Keeps me dreaming of spring and inspiration. Thank you.
    Praying that you and your family have a blessed Easter.

  14. It's amazing how much style those little patios have! It's nice to know that you don't have to have a lot of space to have something beautiful. Thanks for sharing those photos.

  15. A little style goes a long way, they are all just lovely!

  16. Great post, Brenda! Looks like you have already helped some folks here with a few ideas. I, myself, love the pink adirondack! Too cute!!

  17. These are all lovely. Now I see that I need a rug for my patio.

  18. Did you notice the grass carpet in the first photograph? That is a very fun idea for a tiny patio. Brenda, you patio is better than these though. Can you imagine your pups on one of those tiny balconies? I which I had a fence surrounding my tiny back yard patio. That's the truly important thing if everyone is walking by all day like the Frontier guys, the UPS guy, etc. Course, I do get to know them all! -Ginene

  19. I am so sad the women that were attacked on here for sharing their difficulties have not returned. These are for people with money to burn. I cannot afford to waste money on the patio.

  20. These are all great small spaces but I absolutely love the second one, with the wicker chairs. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Wonderful examples of perfect little outdoor retreats! Thank you!!
