Ideas for decorating your balcony

Whoever thinks that balconies are awkward, cramped and should only be used to hang the laundry has not seen the clever ideas of these designers. Even those who picture concrete, brick and cold steel will be surprised by the many ways that a stylish and natural atmosphere can be created on such a small structure high above the ground. Below are some ideas for all types of balconies and other small outdoor spaces.

The first smart idea that we want to show you is this piece of multifunctional balcony furniture, which is perfect for those who like to sit outside working, playing games or reading. Now even the smallest balcony can serve a living room or office with this brilliantly thought-out balcony table. Sturdy, stylish and multifunctional, this desk is available in many different colours to match any style. The integrated planter also means that you can sit in front of green plants and flowers, enjoying nature while you work.

Focus on the floor

One way to spruce up your balcony is to focus on the ground. The floor under your feet does not have to be boring concrete broken only by a mat to wipe your feet. Even for a small balcony, there are many possibilities. Try ornate tiles or wooden plank for a slight change that will make a big difference. You can also consider putting down gravel or simply giving the concrete a cheerful colour with a good exterior paint. You’ll be surprised at what a difference a little change can make!

For many people, especially those who live in cities but have green thumbs, a balcony is a surrogate garden. Often, you see planters in all shapes and sizes hanging from the railing or sitting on the balcony floor. For those who do not have space for a collection of planted pots, this Green Wall is a beautiful, original and space-saving way to still have a green and natural balcony.

You could also use these stacked planters to dress your balcony in flowers in a space-saving manner. This vertical garden holds everything that grows and blooms in a stylish and natural way, leaving you room to spare!

A mini fire

A campfire, fireplace or fire pit is no longer just for large gardens or the beach. You can also enjoy a roaring fire on your balcony with this stylish and safe ceramic fire bowl. Its compact size allows for just enough flame to bring a little warmth and romance to those chilly outdoor evenings.

You can also make use of the entire length and width of your balcony to lie down comfortably in this stable, modern hammock chair. The simple suspension system, attached at both ends allows you to be safe and secure as you lounge in the warm sun. And if you want to use your balcony one time for other activities, this hammock is easily removed, folded and hidden away! What a lovely, luxurious outdoor accessory!
