Small Balcony Décor that Offers a Big Impact


You may not have a big backyard, but that doesn't mean the potential isn't there to have an outdoor space you love to use. When you look at your apartment balcony it probably looks hopeless. Is there really anything you can do with that small space? Sure there is! You may be surprised at how cozy and functional you really can make this area.

  • Plant Stand - You might as well make the most of that natural light. Place a plant stand against the back wall or at one of the ends. You can grow everything from flowers to herbs to fresh greens for your salad.

  • Bio Fuel Fireplace for the Table - A small bio fuel fireplace for the table will create a relaxing ambiance and keep you warm out there when temperatures dip.

  • Bistro Table - These table and chairs sets are streamlined and take up minimal space. You and a guest will be able to enjoy breakfast or a bottle of wine on the balcony.

  • Bench Seating - Hoping to squeeze a few more guests on your balcony? Create an L-shaped bench against two walls. You could buy something, or you can probably build them with old pallets. Then, just put a couple outdoor cushions on top.

  • Folding Balcony Table - Folding terrace tables hang over the balcony railing and come in a wide variety of styles and colors. You can leave them down all the time to hold small plants, or just unfold one when you need somewhere to set your beverage or laptop.

  • Umbrella - To make your balcony a lot more comfortable, an umbrella should be at the top of your list. You can even buy umbrella mounts that fasten to the railing.

  • Railing Planters - If you don't want a plant stand, balcony railing planters will give you lots of growing space, too. Of course, you can certainly have both!

  • Meditation Accessories - You don't need traditional seating on your balcony. Perhaps you would rather place a rug on the ground with some cushions, and use this as a meditation space.

  • Solar Lights - If you are going to use solar lights, you want to make sure they don't bother any neighbors. A strand of string lights around your sliding door should be fine. You can also buy lights that mount inside your umbrella.

  • Wind Chimes - You might not notice noise from traffic, if you have some beautiful wind chimes to listen to.

  • Statuary - You don't need a backyard to have a gnome collection. Not a fan of gnomes? A few smaller statues of frogs, geckos, squirrels, elephants, or any other animal you love will put a nice personal touch on the space.
