How To Maximize Your Outdoor Space — From Fire Escapes To Backyards

Our passion for spacial problem solving has deepened over the past two years — and now, as the weather warms, our outside areas (or lack thereof) are top of mind. For those of us without access to private open-air oases, investing in the right al-fresco finds can be a strategic move in maximizing whatever outdoor space we're working with. Whether you have a window sill, fire escape, shared rooftop, cramped concrete patio, front stoop, tiny grass patch, real backyard, or full-on meadow, we hunted down goods to help make the most out of them.
Ahead, find everything from makeshift windowsill daybeds to tote-able front-stoop folding chairs, compact inflatable pools, and full-on fire pits that will set up your own outside slice for optimal enjoyment.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
