When you're working with a small outdoor space, garden furniture that serves more than one purpose is something of a lifesaver. Particularly at the moment, when we should all be following the governments advice to stay at home, and may need to think of new ways to maximise the space that we do have.

So, when we spotted this multi-use garden bench, we were pretty excited to share it with our fellow small space dwellers. After all, not only does the Svano Arbor Bench, £90, provide a spot to soak up some sun and escape the confines of your own home, it also double up as a handy spot to dry laundry, trail plants or hand stylish outdoor lighting. And if that wasn't enough reason to shop, Ikea can even deliver this beauty straight to your front door.

Sturdy, durable and easy to care for, this bench can be stored outdoors all year around, which will likely be music to your ears if you only have a small garden. 

We love the idea of making it feel extra cosy with the help of plenty of cushions and blankets. You could even wrap a string of fairy-lights around it to add a subtle glow and allows you to enjoy your outside space, even when the sun goes down.

And if you're working with a slightly unattractive area of your garden, why not pop this bench against the wall and encourage trailing plants to crawl up the the metal supports, it's the easiest way to disguise aesthetically unappealing areas without spending too much money.
