When you picture spring and summer relaxation, you probably envision yourself lying on a hammock under the sun with a nice book.
Adding a hammock to your patio is a great way to set up a comfy environment that you’ll want to relax in every single day! Setting it up on your patio is great for those who have small yards or anyone who needs some extra outdoor seating.

2. Use Outdoor Stools For Space-Saving Tables
If you have a small patio, it can sometimes be a challenge to work with such limited space. However, with a little creativity, you can still work through some patio furniture ideas no matter how small your space is.
To create some space-saving tables, you can easily use tall stools as makeshift tabletops. These can also double as seating, making it even more convenient for your space.

4. Make Your Patio Comfortable With Outdoor Rugs
Sometimes you have to think outside the box when it comes to outdoor comfort. Outdoor rugs are an unexpected addition to your patio, but they’re well worth it to achieve the ultimate relaxation.
Rugs will not only add comfort to your patio, but they’ll also add a nice decorative element. You can easily match the rest of your decor or bring out a splash of color with the rug.
Make sure to only use rugs that are meant to be used outdoors. Certain materials won’t hold up very well through the rain and outdoor elements, so be careful if you want to use a rug that will last long.

There’s nothing like sitting on your patio, enjoying the sunshine with a cold drink in hand, and rocking back and forth in a nice chair. You’ll feel like you’re living the life this spring and summer!
Rocking chairs and benches can also add a lot of unique style to your patio and will look nice when combined with other outdoor decorations.

Small patios can benefit from portable furniture because sometimes you just need some simple, temporary seating and tables when entertaining.
Use foldable tables and chairs for your patio to save space. Simply set them out when you want to entertain for a backyard BBQ or outdoor gathering. Then store them away in your garage or shed when you’re not using them.
Foldable furniture can also be dressed up with tablecloths, placemats, and stylish drinkware and dishes. You can transform a simple table into a beautiful spring display.
