So you think your garden is small and simple with very little room for imagination. Well, in this homify feature we look at 11 small outdoor spaces that may be equally petite, but there's a lot of creativity and charm going on to make it chic and amazing. With the help from homify, there's no excuse not to have a stylish garden or terrace, let's just take a look!

1. Welcoming

A small wooden table with matching chairs will be your best bet for a garden area that is comfortable and welcoming. It's the perfect spot to enjoy summer nights under the moonlight with your closest friends and family.

2. Wicker it

Wicker patio furniture is affordable, easy to find and absolutely durable. You'll just need to make sure your pillows are inside if you expect a stormy night.

3. Fire pit

Seating around a fire pit, well there's no way easier to enjoy the winter in style.

4. Undercover

This terrace is sheltered from the harsh sun, making it an awesome spot to catch up on the news with a cup of coffee at your side.

5. Pretty pond

A pretty pond is a fantastic addition to your garden for that babbling brook effect, now just invest in some Koi fish too.

6. With a view

Use your view as part of your terrace decor, especially if you're close to the seaside.

7. Benched

A rustic picnic style bench is another fantastic option for your outdoor decor, and it's perfectly weather resistant too.

8. Minimalist
