To some people the balcony is used as a storage room which is especially the case in small home, to some it's seen as merely and extension to the home and to others it's seen as a garden.

You can use your balcony to be both a storage space and also a garden, the key is how to arrange the elements.
A small balcony can be converted into a nest away such as this. All you need are some garden chairs or a couple of stools which don't take up too much space. To add a hint of freshness to the balcony, you can line pots along the window sill and hang up a painting perhaps.

The backyard can simply be decorated with bean bags or perhaps cushions for an added effect. You can experiment with colors, shapes and sizes.
