On glorious winter evenings and vibrant sunny afternoons, an unloved balcony no matter it’s size, is a sad sight to lay eyes on. For all the ones currently using their balcony as an attic or storing their unused furniture in there along with a pile of old newspapers, just know this – you can transform that graveyard for dead plants into something magical.
If you have a balcony space, the right styling can turn it into a cosy little spot you can relax and even entertain your guests in. Scroll through this list of 10 ideas that will help you make the most of your balcony space and you will thank us later.
1. Planter wall :
A planter wall can be a beautiful addition to your balcony, setting a distinctive tone to your outdoor setting. Add some fairy lights to it, giving the whole space a festive feel.
2. The right light:
It’s true that candles set the stage for romance on the balcony. But a statement hanging light can also cast an equally magical glow. And what’s really cool about them is that a cool winter breeze can’t put them off.
3. A collapsible balcony dining set:
Want to enjoy your breakfast spread with bae but your balcony doesn’t have space to accommodate a table and chair set? We have just the right
recommendation for you. Get yourself a collapsible table that can be put out afterwards.
4. Turn your tiny balcony into a garden:
If you are not a fan of putting a table and chair on your balcony, you can always decorate it with a couple of planters. Pack your balcony with planters filled with lush plants to create the feel of that backyard you’ve always wanted. Add some herbs to make your balcony smell as good as it looks.
5. Get in a folding furniture:
If you’re short on space, try installing furniture that can be tucked or folded away when not in use. This folding table disappears to free up floor space.
6. A spot for dinner with family and friends:
If you are one of the lucky ones to have a balcony that has a space for putting in a dining set, by all means get one in. After all, what’s better than enjoying a quiet meal while catching up with your peeps while the world passes by below.
7. A vertical affair:
Small balcony? No problem. You can style what square footage you do have by opting for some smart pieces that go up vertically. If you are a plant lover, just opt for a stacked planter for your plant babies and create a vertical garden rather than spreading planters out across the floor.
