When looking to design the outdoor oasis of your dreams, especially on a balcony, you want to choose the right patio furniture for small spaces. While it may be tempting to press "buy now" on larger sets, patio furniture that's too oversized can make it feel cramped and crowded if you have a small space. Instead, look for pieces that complement the area, making it feel light, breezy, and comfortable.
Small balcony furniture doesn't have to sacrifice any style. Patio furniture for small spaces is just as trendy, stylish, and versatile as full-sized sets. However, there are a few tips to keep in mind when designing your balcony. Teak and Table provides a variety of luxurious collections to choose from, delivering fine outdoor furniture straight to your door.

How to Pick the Right Outdoor Furniture
Picking the right outdoor furniture comes down to a few things. Those things include personal taste, correct measurements, and selecting the best pieces to accommodate your needs.
Choosing Your Style
The first thing to do is decide on one cohesive style for your balcony or small patio. For example, do you want to create a forest feel with lots of natural wood materials and outdoor plants? Or, you may be looking for something modern featuring dark neutral colors and straight lines. One thing is for sure, no matter what patio for small spaces you choose, you want to ensure that it's both comfortable and durable.
Measuring Your Space
After you choose the style you're going for, the next thing to do is measure your balcony. Remember that you'll need to leave room for any doors to open and for people to navigate the small floor space available outside without bumping into things.
The general rule is that you need 36-inches to 2-feet of walking space on your pathways. Remember to measure door clearance if you don't have sliders and to leave room for any additional decor items you may want to add, such as greenery, tables, lighting, and more.
Once you know the patio furniture style you want on your balcony and know how much you have room for, it's much easier to begin your search and narrow down your options.
Choosing Materials & Other Considerations
The last step in learning how to choose small space patio furniture is to decide what materials you want the pieces to be, the accents you want to add, and what must-have features you need from the items.
Some people go for the classic all-natural light wood look, which is coming back in style. Others go for pieces with a metal base or even pieces made from marble. There's no wrong way to go as long as you're getting the furniture that meets your needs and helps create the balcony of your dreams.
Also, consider additional items you may want to add to the space, such as an electric fire pit, an umbrella, side tables, patio lanterns, and more.

The Relax Teak Lantern
At Teak and Table, we won't leave you with just the furniture. We also have a wide range of accessories and decor items to complete your space. We have it all, from warm glowing lanterns that create evening ambiance to umbrellas and fire tables.
The Levante Bamboo Center Pole Umbrella
Using compact outdoor lighting is essential when choosing patio furniture for small spaces. You can place it right on your center or end table, so it doesn't take up more room on the floor. Umbrellas provide shade on those days that may seem just too hot to handle, and a fire table can bring people together for great conversation and laughs.
The Lunar Fire Bowl
Bear in mind that when selecting patio furniture for a patio, you may have to sacrifice some of your wants to meet all of your needs. For example, your balcony may need four seats, which leaves less room for extras like a fire table. However, should you have limited seating needs, you'll have more room to add some fun and stylish additions.
