If you're in need of patio storage ideas, start with the furnishings you already have. Many of your existing furniture pieces or decorative pieces can be upgraded or replaced by alternatives with hidden storage areas. The best part is, these outdoor items might take even less floor space while still providing convenient storage.

To help you squeeze every bit of storage from your patio, here are some ideas to try:

Folding furniture

The best part of summer is enjoying outdoor dining outdoors. However, finding a good table is a challenge when it comes to a small porch. Folding furniture can be a great option if you're short on space. Try a folding patio table with built-in shelves for extra storage potential. When dinner's over, simply fold up the table and tuck it out of sight.

Storage benches & chairs

Patio benches and chairs with hidden storage are one of the most efficient ways to decorate your porch or patio. These furnishings give you both seating space and storage in the same footprint, leaving more space leftover for decor. As a bonus, this type of bench or chair is simple to DIY using crates or reclaimed wood.

Storage tables

If you don't already have an outdoor coffee table or side table in your outdoor living space, consider adding one for an extra surface with bonus outdoor storage. A simple table is another excellent example of a possible DIY outdoor storage solution, too. Use it to hide entertaining supplies, outdoor toys or tools while adding the extra convenience of a flat surface.

Storage planters

Planters with hidden storage compartments are slightly harder to find than furniture storage, but might be worth the effort to search for. These planters feature empty compartments below the soil, and make the perfect place to store your gardening tools. Who knew potted plants could also help you save space?

Mini sheds

Garden sheds provide a secure, enclosed space for securing just about anything. Of course, not every homeowner has enough room for a garden shed. A mini shed may be a better solution for people who have a small yard or limited budget. When tucked away in a corner, a mini shed serves as an easily accessible storage solution for larger items.

No matter the size of your patio, you can use these ideas to create a more efficient and functional outdoor living area.
