A simple setup of small outdoor furniture on the patio

Outdoor Patio Furniture for Small Spaces

Thinking of creating an outdoor dining area? Or perhaps a place for afternoon lounging? Here are some small patio rattan furniture ideas to help you make the perfect arrangement for your space.

A wooden bistro chair with steel framework

Small patio bistro sets

Bistro sets often come with a round outdoor dining table along with two chairs. They make the perfect breakfast nook set up for narrow patio space, porch, or balcony.

Rattan bistro sets offer a place to sit down and enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon tea. The patio table may be small, but it’s enough to hold even small meals.

Another way you can make the most out of a bistro set is by sipping on a glass of wine with a sunset view. So, if you enjoy dining on your small patio, this type of garden furniture is perfect for you!

Note: If you want to know more about bistro sets, take a look at our handy guide here. We have a lot of exciting stuff to share with you about this garden furniture!

Conversation sets placed on the deck

Watching the sunset with your loved one or a friend in your outdoor space is such a priceless way to end the day. Pair this experience with a simple garden table and chair set; you couldn’t ask for more.

Small patio conversation sets can offer you this ultimate convenience. Like bistro sets, they usually come with two patio chairs and a side outdoor coffee table.

Generally, conversation sets are ideal for two people, but there are models with a larger seating capacity. There’s also a wide range of chair types for this type of garden furniture.

This includes the following:

  • Club chairs
  • Lounge chairs
  • Rockers
  • Small patio sectionals

Some sets even come with ottomans which is an excellent benefit for those who want a space-saving set. Most importantly, an ottoman lets you kick up your feet and unwind.

A luxurious outdoor corner sofa setup

When it comes to outdoor sofa (garden corner sofa) sets, one of the top choices in the UK is corner sofas. Also known as L-shaped garden furniture, they can be pushed easily into a corner. Thus, giving you extra space on your patio.

Patio corner sofas can also perfectly fit in the corner, hence the name. They usually come in two to four-seaters. Some corner garden sofas even include a coffee table and ottomans for extra foot room.

Thanks to their unique design, corner sofas are fantastic for socialising. And if you often change the setup of your patio, you can move this type of garden furniture around without a sweat!

Looking for ways to style and enhance the appeal of your small outdoor living space?

Patio decor and accessories can be your ideal choice; they can complement your space without a hitch. What’s more, some of these accessories can even benefit you and the whole family!

For one, a patio umbrella can provide shade and refuge from harmful UV rays. Whereas, an outdoor rug will add a pop of colour and style to your tiny patio or porch balcony.

There’s also a fantastic range of accessories that can help you make the most of your small rattan furniture set. Some of these extras can also keep your pieces of garden furniture in good shape for years to come.

  • Garden furniture covers. They act as shields, keeping your furniture protected from harsh weather conditions. Plus, garden furniture covers ensure your outdoor pieces are clean and dry when not in use.
  • Garden furniture cushions & pads. For ultimate comfort, adding cushions is key! They make any kind of garden furniture much more comfortable.

This includes rattan furniture sets, metal garden furniture, and wooden garden furniture. Even better, garden furniture cushions & pads can help extend the lifespan of your set.

  • Patio heaters. These are a great investment, especially if you enjoy spending time on your patio on cold evenings. With a patio heater, you can extend your time outdoors well into the night.
  • Storage boxes. Unless you already have ottomans to do the job, extra storage is ideal for cushions when not in use. Storage is also essential if you have a small patio, as this can help you maximise your space.
  • Plant pots and greens. This is optional, but we all know how greenery can add life to any space. If you don’t have room for a traditional garden, this is your chance!
  • Lighting. Nothing beats natural lighting, of course. But for chilly evening hangouts, hanging some string lights will make a difference.

Style Your Small Patio with Our Range of Rattan Garden Sets

Outdoor seating makes it so much better when spending time on patios or in the garden. But it can be tricky to add a furniture set if your outdoor living space is limited.

Luckily for you, outdoor rattan garden furniture has an excellent reputation for gardens of any size. So, you’re likely to find suitable pieces for you.

BillyOh Amalfi 7 Seater Outdoor Aluminium Garden Sofa Set

BillyOh Amalfi Aluminium Garden Sofa Set

Like the synthetic material in rattan furniture, aluminium is the most popular material in metal sets. And did you know that aluminium garden furniture is one of the favourite pieces in the UK?

The BillyOh Amalfi is no exception! Metal furniture that’s not powder-coated can become hot to touch during sunny days. Let alone to sit on; a bummer, isn’t it?

That’s why our Amalfi comes powder-coated. Offering great portability, this set comes with separate sofas for ultimate outdoor entertainment.

What we like about this aluminium sofa set is its black cast steel framework with wooden accents. This makes it one of the ideal buying choices for furniture that gives off a modern style.

The wooden touch offers a contemporary vibe as well as a great contrast with the bright cushions. The aluminium powder-coated frame is solid but lightweight, making the set easy to manoeuvre.

This 7-seater set also comes with a small table that features the same black aluminium framework and wooden top, matching the accents of the whole set.

What Can You Do With a Small Table?

Never underestimate the power of a small patio table. It may be small in size, but a small outdoor coffee table can be the focal point of your patio.

For garden spaces that are way too narrow and tight for a furniture set, an outdoor coffee table paired with a stool will do the trick. A small picnic table can provide you with someplace to put your wine and some little snacks while outdoors.

Or, if you enjoy hosting a BBQ party for family and friends, you can use a small outdoor table as a serving station. You can also use it as a decoration for your small front patio. Add flowers and put a sizable welcome mat underneath.

Small garden tables make a great addition to patios, especially those that are limited in space. They’re also helpful in decorating homes.

When it comes to maximising a small outdoor space, you can't go wrong with adding garden furniture. Not only does this help improve the appeal of your home, but also it provides the ideal space and comfort for outdoor entertainment.

First, you need to understand your space. Look for a potential area where you can squeeze in your rattan furniture (e.g. a bistro set), for instance.

Then, find balance while working with your small space. Don't limit your design vision when arranging your set just because you have a limited deck space.

Add in elements of ambience and comfort and styles that speak to your personality. This way, you can incorporate your own style into your tiny space.

Bistro garden furniture is a set that comes with a table, usually in a round shape, and two chairs. A bistro garden set is an ideal choice for those with very limited outdoor spaces.

Also, for those with restaurants and cafés, bistro sets are an excellent set-up for outdoor dining. You can place them on pavements outside your restaurant or coffee shop.

To keep your aluminium patio furniture set looking its best, here’s what you need to do.


  • Have a cleaning routine. Clean it with warm water and mild detergent. Let it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. If possible, and if there’s any, follow the specific cleaning instructions from your supplier.
  • Add cushions and furniture cover. You already know what we meant by this, so be sure to keep these two in mind!
  • Do touch-ups. If there are any chips on the surface, coat the affected area with a car paint kit in the appropriate colour.

Yes, but if you plan on leaving it out all year, it's best to cover it with PE or plastic covers for ultimate protection.

Synthetic rattan is a top-tier material for garden furniture. A corner sofa made from this material is guaranteed to withstand even the harsh British climate.

This includes humid or damp conditions and extreme weather conditions (harmful UV rays). All in all, it has weatherproof PVC rattan qualities, which the natural rattan don't have.
