Got a small garden? Or even a balcony? A lack of square footage doesn't mean you have to write off your outside space entirely. In fact, this Ikea garden furniture  will give you a greater idea of exactly what can be achieved, no matter how little space you're working with.

Not only is it designed to be compact, it also makes the most of vertical space, which is key when you're designing a tiny garden. Plus, because it's from Ikea, it's all relatively affordable. And no, we wouldn't encourage you to head to the Swedish superstore right now, instead consider ordering online to abide by the current social distancing advice.

If you want to spend time in your garden, whether that's eating, working, or simply soaking up some sun, you'll need somewhere to sit.

This Tarno Dining Set, £35, is lightweight, compact and will fit in even the smallest of spaces. Plus, thanks to its classic bistro design, you won't have to worry about it looking outdated in a few summers time.

And when you want to make the most of your outside space, simply fold up your dining set and prop it against the wall.
