Ikea garden furniture, in fact, Ikea furniture in general, is often designed with smaller spaces in mind. They have options for every bijou balcony, petite patio or tiny terrace in vibrant modern designs or traditional wood tones. No wonder Ikea is always our first port of call for small space solutions.
So if you are getting your garden ready for summer (who isn't right now, since we are all going to be spending a lot more time in them) we have rounded up some of our fave Ikea picks below. Scroll on to see some great ways that Ikea garden furniture has been a saviour in the garden, or if it is garden furniture sales you are after we have you covered there too.
1. Pick out a compact bistro set
Love the traditional, romantic design of the Lacko set, we reckon it could transform a dreary patio into some Parisian style balcony – pots of lavender dotted around, French press and croissants on the table – yer, okay it might take a bit of imagination but still, nice idea.
2. Add style with an iconic outdoor chair
Twenty two pounds. We'll say it again: £22! That's all the Vago chair (above) costs! This is for sure one of those indoor/outdoor pieces: great on a balcony, great in the corner of the kitchen. The design is just a classic.
3. Go for modular Ikea garden furniture
Modular furniture has always been a small space dweller's friend. What we like so much about the Solleron series is you can really create a shape of sofa that fits with your space. You can build up how many seats you want, add armrests, corner sections, pick colours and cushions to go on top – just a really versatile piece of garden furniture.
This Tranaro table (above) is pretty cool, too. It's really versatile because you can either have just one, or pop two together so it can morph into side table, coffee table, bedside table. It can even be used as a stool! Not a fan of the red, but love the design? Check out our guide to painting metal garden furniture!
4. And pick Ikea garden furniture that has hidden storage
Look how much gorgeous Ikea garden furniture fits on to this tiny balcony! With any small space, indoor or out, furniture has to work hard and opting for multifunctional furniture is always going to help you save space. This lovely rattan effect two seater sofa has handy storage within the seat, so you won't need another piece of furniture to hide away cushions, throws, gardening paraphernalia.
5. Make use of vertical space
If we've said it once, and we will say it again, vertical gardening is your friend if you're looking to make the most of a small space. And this Salladskal Ladder Shelf, £50, is designed to help you do just that. Style with plenty of plants to ensure you maximise the potential of your outside space.
6. Create ambience with some Ikea garden lighting
Okay, so this isn't technically garden furniture, but it does have the potential to completely transform the look – and feel – of your outside space. Seriously, garden lighting can add a subtle sparkle to your space, creating all kinds of atmosphere as soon as the sun goes down.
