Balcony is a place that can be used as a convenient place to gather with family or even your friends. Just because you have a small balcony doesn’t mean you don’t have the option to decorate it anymore. As long as you have access to your terrace, you still can decorate it and make it look beautiful and have a homey and cozy feeling.
As an outdoor space, there may be some challenges to finding the right decor for your small balcony, but treating it as an extension of your home may help you decide on some creative ideas. You can also use your balcony’s design to compensate for a small-sized yard by incorporating natural elements to go with the outdoor scenery.
You can enjoy a warm breakfast outside on your balcony. How? You can purchase a few outdoor rugs and place them on your balcony however, you have to make sure that the colors of the outdoor rugs that you choose compliment and go with the color of your furniture and the rest of your house. On top of the rug, you can place a small, adorable table with matching small chairs or perhaps even reclining ones so that you can enjoy a hearty breakfast under the sun. You can even use pillows or maybe even a bean bag as chairs on your balcony, however, you have to cover them with plastic whenever you are not using them so that they will not get dirty.
If the tiny space on your balcony allows, you may even go shopping for outdoor fountains, however, make sure that you get the one that can fit on your balcony. Having an outdoor fountain on your terrace will make the atmosphere even more comfortable and peaceful, because you can just lay back, close your eyes and listen to the trickling water from your fountain and other forms of nature ring around you.
One of the easiest, and most attractive things you can add to your apartment balcony is green plants. Even the tiniest balcony has room for a pot or two. Consider growing vegetables or herbs as a fresh alternative to store-bought produce. Put a few potted plants on your terrace. Their size depends entirely on you, as long as your balcony will still have some space after you are done decorating it. You can even opt for the plants that can be hung on the wall; this actually is a better option in terms of space. You can even have hanging baskets to further enhance your outdoor design.
