Most apartments nowadays are pretty limited with space and having a small outside area is almost a luxury for many.
And, turning a small balcony into a functional space can be a bit of a challenge. But don’t worry – there are plenty of things you can do to make this space into a relaxing retreat.
The first thing you need to do is to use multi-functional furniture. For example, benches, chairs or coffee tables that have a storage compartment will save you a lot of space. Your balcony is also a valuable place for dining or hanging out with friends, so you’d also want to consider using portable chairs or tables.
Once you’ve dealt with functionality, you also have to think about the aesthetics of your balcony. Adding colors with stuff like cushions, blankets, different containers will give warmth to the space.
Creating a small garden, if it’s possible, is also a great way to visually lengthen the space. Hanging various plants on the wall will brighten up the space – and mood!
The list of options is endless, but keep in mind one thing – the only rule when decorating your favorite place is to give it a personal touch. You can’t go wrong with that!
