Decorating Ideas for Small Balcony Spaces

Living in an apartment or a condo generally means that your backyard is essentially your balcony. And not all balconies are made the same. But just because your balcony is small doesn’t mean you can’t spruce it up and decorate it in a cozy and stylish way.

Every balcony can become a small outdoor haven if you use the right touches to decorate. All you need to do is invest in the right items that offer space-saving practicality with style any designer would approve of. Here are some great ideas for your own small balcony that you can implement any time.

Hang Planters on The Walls

When you’re working with a small balcony, make use of your wall space. Hang planters on the walls to save room on the floor or your railing. Giving your balcony a nice touch of greenery is the perfect way to add a stylish touch, and with the plants surrounding you, you’ll feel like it’s your own little outdoor getaway. Plants are also great for helping you relax, keeping your stress levels under control, and adding a welcoming vibe.

Use String Lighting

Hang some string lights or lanterns to give your balcony a cozy, elegant glow. You won’t really need lights during the day, but at night you don’t want something too bright. String lights offer the perfect compromise, and come in a variety of styles to match your personality and the rest of your home. Hang them around the walls, or from the railing for a stylish effect.

Install Folding Furniture

If you’re really tight on space, but want to make your balcony more homey, consider installing folding furniture. Think a chair that folds down from the wall. If you don’t have the capability to do this, look for a folding chair that goes above your typical plastic lawn chair so you can have a bit of style in your space. This way, you can tuck it away when you don’t need it, but it’ll be ready for optimal comfort whenever you do need it.

Change The Flooring 

Try out some new flooring ideas that give your feet the comfort they deserve while also gaining points in the style department. There are plenty of options that can go right over the concrete, like decorative deck tiles. Even if you can’t change the floor, try throwing down a nice area rug that can stand up to the elements. Something as minor as a rug can make a major difference in comfort and style.

Use a Balcony Railing Table

If you don’t have room for a nice table, or you want to save floor space wherever possible, try a balcony railing table. Essentially, a balcony railing table is a shelf that works as a table that you can hang over the railing. This way, you can put your drinks or candles there and you still have room for a chair or two. There are plenty of varieties to choose from online, including different styles and price ranges, like these options from Wayfair.

Sit on Benches Instead of Chairs 

A balcony doesn’t need fancy chairs to be chic and practical. If you can, install some benches around your balcony so you don’t have to constantly worry about folding chairs. When that won’t work, invest in a few small wooden benches that you can sit on comfortably. These are great because they can move around and store easily when not in use, and you can throw a blanket over them to add a more decorative touch.
