How to Create Two Outdoor Seating Areas in a Small Space
I’ll show you how to create two outdoor seatings areas in a small space today. I love having an eating area and a cozy spot to enjoy a glass of wine.
I’ve always liked the idea of having two outdoor seating areas. A table and chairs to eat and another area where you can sit and relax with a glass of wine.
My outdoor area isn’t the biggest and quite frankly it was ugly. It was just a bare concrete slab until we painted it to look like an outdoor rug.
By just using a small corner of this patio area, I was able to define a nice outdoor seating area where I could enjoy a glass of wine after dinner.
I wanted seats that were comfy but not overpowering for the area. To define the space I shimmied the outdoor dining table over a bit to the other side and used the corner of the patio area to create a cozy area for two.
I chose these two Medan Graphite lounge chairs. They are made from a durable synthetic wicker and have a powder coated aluminum frame. I don’t have a covered area in my backyard and I live in North Vancouver which means is rains more than it doesn’t rain!
I love that the chairs have the look of rattan but can withstand the weather!
They are even extra cozy with some faux white fur sheepskins that I already had in my house.
To make the cozy seating area more cohesive, I added a tea cart with planted herbs. I also added some mossy branches to a demijohn. You can see how I made them in this tutorial.

You have a very nice patio and you have managed in a very nice way. I just loved the decoration you have done with plants on that patio table. It’s just awesome.
Thank you for sharing this.
Thank you. I’m really enjoying this space.
We have a “hangout” area and an eating area on our back deck too, and it really does make such a difference! Love those gorgeous chairs you chose!!
It does make such a big difference! Thanks Abby.
Great read! I love those chairs for your cozy outdoor space.
Thanks Aaron! I’m glad you like it 😉
I’m reading this a few days after publishing – love the cosy sitting area but I really need a shed! Would you mind telling me where yours hails from? Thank you!
I got it at Home Depot, Wendi. They delivered it in a huge box to my house but it needs to be assembled.
Love it! I am always looking for more ideas to create multiple seating/conversation/etc. areas in our yard. People always gather in clusters, so more areas for that is always needed! And the pieces you chose are gorgeous!
Thanks, Jenna! Love that I have multiple seating areas now.
