There’s usually a small space either down the side of the house or at the bottom of the garden that seems too small to fill, so just goes to waste.
Instead of trying to fit oversized chairs or plants down there, why not create a small indoor/outdoor area with a pergola. You can hang lights across the beams and organise some makeshift seating with a wooden swing and cushions. To make the space feel even more homey, paint the outside wall and decorate with street art stencils, posters or industrial letters. It will be a great hang out right from spring through to autumn and can be quickly packed up and moved inside if the weather turns.
