    Promising review: "This is a great little patio set for a small space. It looks perfect on the little patio I have at my condo. I bought a couple of small outdoor pillows to put on each chair and put a small outdoor lantern on the table and it is an adorable set." —kmarie83

    Get it from Amazon for $156.98+ (available in four cushion colors).

    A set of three tables of differing heights

    Get a set of three from Overstock for $146.99 (originally $172.99).

    4. A sofa that may not be as large as the one in your den but can fit perfectly on your back patio, even if it doesn't have too much room to spare. Plus, not only can you slide the ottoman under the sofa if you aren't using it, but you can also store stray items inside it.


    Promising review: "I am pleased with this product so far. The cushions are comfy and it's a good height for sitting. Assembly was easy and didn't take long. I can't wait to enjoy more days on my porch with this set." —Kathrin Kimmons

    Get it from Amazon for $309.99.

    5. This chic seating set because you'll be able to sit and sip your morning coffee and still give your pup enough room to curl up in front of your feet.

    Two round, white wicker chairs with a side table

    The set includes two chairs with cushions and a table.

    Promising review: "This is super easy to assemble and it looks great in my patio!" —Cynthia

    Get it from Wayfair for $399.99 (originally $779.99).

    6. Or this Adirondack chair, which makes for super cute outdoor seating but is also foldable so you can stow it away when you don't want it taking up what little walking space you have.

    A reviewer photo of the wood chair outside, which in classic Adirondack chair style, leans back somewhat and has two big armrests

    Promising review: "So, the chairs are great. They're quite comfortable, although low to the ground, which is common for Adirondack chairs. They're pretty easy to get out of. They definitely need to have a finish — if you like the color of the natural wood, a polyurethane would work. I suspect they would decay pretty rapidly if they were not finished. I specifically wanted red chairs, so I didn't mind painting them. These chairs are foldable, which is great. It makes it easy to move them around or get them out of the way for mowing." —Yellow

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    7. A wooden bench with built-in storage drawers so you don't have to choose between getting a cute new place to sit and adding some extra storage space.

    A bench with armrests and built-in storage drawers

    Promising review: "I ordered this bench for a small, empty area as you enter our home. I love it; it is the perfect size and looks really nice. Pros: It's sturdy and looks great. Cons: none" —luvcolorado14

    Get it from Wayfair for $199.99 (originally $265).

    8. This C-shaped side table that'll give you a helping hand when you need somewhere to rest your coffee, but will also stay out of the way when need to get up to make yourself another cup — the open design lets you slide it closer to chairs and tables.

    A square-shaped table with iron legs in the shape of a "C"

    Promising review: "This is a good piece that fits a plate and a drink without taking up tons of space on my apartment patio. It’s nice that it is outdoor friendly but the Texas weather will give it a true test." —Gabriella M.

    Get it from Overstock for $61.49 (originally $66.99).

    9. A resin storage box — it's perfect if you don't have space for a whole shed but need something to actually hold and shelter the items that you've been leaving strewn around your yard all this time.

    A model putting pillows inside the deck box

    Promising review: "I was very pleased with this box — it came well-packaged, had easy-to-follow directions, and took only minutes to put together. It is huge inside and will fit all of our patio cushions and then some. Best money I've spent in a while! We went with this particular model over others because this one looked easiest to clean. Other faux boxes have a wicker design, but that just creates more crevices for dirt to get suck. This one looks much easier to keep looking good." —Rustic MOB

    Get it from Amazon for $188 (available in two colors).

    10. Or this mini deck box that may seem unassuming until you realize how much of your gardening and cleaning tools you can store in here until you're ready to use 'em.

    Promising review: "I wanted a smallish box for my patio where I have furniture that is perfect for taking a nap. I wanted a place to store a pillow, a throw and other small stuff and this size is perfect for that. Took a few minutes to assemble — you may want to have a rubber mallet handy." —Texas Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $38+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    11. This cute, tiny bistro table and chair set because it's totally foldable so you can keep each piece out of sight and out of the way when you don't really need 'em.

    Two folding chairs and a folding table

    The set includes two chairs and a table.

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my small front porch, and so far I love it! It seems well-made, already comes assembled, and folds up for easy storage!" —Lady D

    Get it from Target for $200 (available in three colors).

    12. A set of four dining chairs you can stack on top of one another when you aren't chowing down outside with your fam. This way, you can save space and avoid making your already-small space look even smaller.

    The four chairs

    Promising review: "Perfect for my deck table! These chairs are lightweight and stackable. I didn’t want more folding chairs. These will work great for me." —Leia

    Get a set of four from Wayfair for $254.99 (available in three colors).

    13. This inflatable sofa cozy enough to make you feel like you're sleeping on an actual bed under the sun (except it takes up much less space).

    Amazon / Via, Amazon

    It doesn't require a pump either — all you have to do is whisk it through the air to blow it up. It's suggested that you close the sleeve opening before ending each movement and keep the mouth closed until you begin the next one. Once there's enough air inside, you'll be good to go!

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this product! I’ve been using it everyday to chill outside and it’s great! It's easy to set up, set down, and it's super comfy." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $46.98+ (available in 10 colors).

    14. And this foldable wooden table perfect for replacing the one you used to own before you realized that it barely left any space for you to actually walk around and enjoy the rest of your yard.

    A fold-up table

    Get it from Wayfair for $509.99 (originally $549.99).

    15. This half umbrella that's, well, half of an umbrella, in case you just have a small sliver of sunny space between the side of your house and your fence — the type of space that's much too small to comfortably accommodate a full-sized umbrella.

    The half umbrella against the side of a shed

    Just push it up against a flat surface and attach it to an umbrella base.

    Promising review: "This half umbrella is just what I needed for a small patio where we sit! I never knew they made half umbrellas! What a great idea! It's perfect!! And you would never know that it's half of an umbrella by looking at it. It's great for those areas where you want it flat up against house or wall. A+ — love it!" —jitz

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in four colors).

    16. A metal table just big enough for a pitcher of lemonade and a few glasses — because what else do you really need to relax outside in the middle of summer?

    The table with items on top

    Promising review: "This matches my rocking chairs and I love the color! I got a slate grey. It's a little smaller than I expected, but it's the perfect size for two cups of coffee and plate of cookies!" —Simona

    A model and their dog sitting in the chair

    Promising review: "I wish I had received this earlier as I got my first sunburn today! Gah! It's so comfortable and I'm so excited to have the ability to have my own little shade. This is so awesome. It is a tad heavier than my other chair but I will gladly handle the heft for a comfy seat and shade!" —LindaLaLa

    Get it from Amazon for $75+ (available in two colors).

    19. A wooden stool you might want to buy three of because it'll help you easily add seating without buying full-size chairs. Plus, there's a matching storage box that fits conveniently underneath this stool and can serve as a place to hold the small items you don't know where to store.

    The wooden stool

    BTW, Goodee is a Black-owned business that specializes in ethically-made, transparently-sourced home goods.

    Get it from Goodee for $439.

    20. This bar-style seating set because, clearly, it's totes possible to add that beautiful, rustic feel to your tiny, urban backyard without worrying about all the space other accessories can take up.

    The set includes a wood counter top and two tables.

    Get it from Target for $329.99.

    21. A comfy, cushion-y ottoman you can pull up to any outdoor couch or chair to rest your feet on. This way, you won't need to forego your free space for an outdoor recliner.

    A square-shaped ottoman with a cushion

    Promising review: "Love it! This can be used for extra seating but also turns an armchair into a chaise lounge when pushed together. It's classy, functional, and comfortable!" —Mary

    Get it from Wayfair for $142.99 (originally $204.99; available in two cushion colors).

    22. This swing chair because you don't have enough space to add both a soft, comfy couch and a light, airy hammock. This kinda hits that sweet spot right in the middle.

    Oval-shaped swing chair with a cushion

    Promising review: "I love this chair. My dogs love this chair. Everyone loves it! It’s sturdy and I’ve had it for a year now and it still looks brand-new even though it’s been outside and endured the Chicago winter (I brought cushion indoors). It was worth every penny. I spend a lot of time relaxing in it." —Mandi

    Get it from Amazon for $371.50.

    23. A pair of zero gravity chairs you can fall in love with in lieu of a giant day bed that's sure to be impossible to walk around. And, they fold up to avoid taking up space when not in use.

    The two chairs

    They make you feel almost weightless by supporting your back and elevating your legs, plus, they recline backward!

    Promising review: "These are better than I thought! My husband wanted a recliner for our outside porch, but they were out of my price range! He loves these and he actually fell asleep in it last night!" —Heather

    Get it from Wayfair for $158.99 (originally $169.99; available in four colors).

    24. This adorable porch swing because, alas, your backyard doesn't come with the expansive grassy space and a large tree to build an actual swing set on, so this will have to do.

    A white porch swing hovering above ground

    Promising review: "I'm so incredibly happy with this porch swing!!!! Not only was it simple to put together but it is also made of heavy, quality material!!!! I highly recommend! We chose to hang it with springs and I would also highly recommend doing so. It does make a nice difference!" —Heather

    Get it from Wayfair for $379 (originally $540; available in seven colors).

    25. This three-piece coffee table and bench set designed to let you slide the benches underneath the table to save space when you aren't sitting on 'em or using 'em to prop your feet up.

    Two models sitting on the slide-out chairs and playing Jenga with the table

    Promising review: "Loved this — it's smart, self-storing furniture that is easy to clean and has supportive cushions with covers that are removable and washable. The benches are comfy enough to sit on without the cushions when everyone’s wearing wet bathing suits and you want to keep the cushions dry. Even if they get wet, they are quick-drying in the sun. When it got too cold to lounge outside, I used the benches inside for extra seating at Thanksgiving dinner and they worked perfectly." —Francis D. McKee

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99.

    26. And this patterned outdoor rug perfect if you just have a few small, bland looking chairs and a tiny coffee table — this rug'll pull the objects in your small area together in a big, beautiful way.

    The coffee table with items on top and a sweater on the lower shelf

    Promising review: "This has great quality, is simple to assemble, and is easy to move. I chose this style because one of my dogs likes to sleep on top of our family room coffee table. Now he can use the bottom shelf on this one and leave the top for us." —tripedalpower

    Get it from Amazon for $150.99.

    28. A wooden bench that's the perfect size for you and your partner to share — admit it. You were totally gonna buy two new clunky chairs you probs don't have the space for before you saw this beauty.

    A wood bench with an iron back and legs

    Promising review: "Great looking bench and it's not too big!! It fits perfectly in my small space near our BBQ area and it's super easy to put together. The metal back a little uncomfortable to lean on, but great once we added a couple of cushions!" —Gilda D.

    Get it from Overstock for $184.99.

    A square-shaped table and set of chairs with high legs

    The set includes a table and four chairs.
