Quite often, the balcony is used as a storage area due to the lack of space in a home. Many items are kept in the balcony like discarded boxes, expired electronic items and books that sometimes clutter the space if they are not appropriately arranged. Whether a balcony is small or large, it can be used as a practical storage area with the right combination of open racks and cabinets. These can be used to store everything, ranging from books and old boxes to old electrical implements, toolbox and cleaning essentials.

If you use your balcony for drying clothes, remember to have large baskets nearby to keep washed and unwashed clothes that will give the region a clutter-free look. Here are some balcony storage ideas that you can implement to make the best use of the available space without taking away the charm of the relaxation zone.

1. Ethnic and simple

While the walls have been used to put up attractive ethnic decorative items, the balcony railings work as planter holders turning the region into a colourful paradise.

2. Home office

In today's scenario, when almost everyone around the world is working from home, sitting indoors alone can get a little tedious. Why not turn the balcony into a home office so you can enjoy the scene outside when the work gets too dull. A table like this that can be easily dismantled and fixed inside the house is the best solution.

3. Relaxation zone

A pretty mirror, few plants and attractive light fixtures have turned this balcony into a cosy relaxation zone. The table with a wide storage cabinet below it can be used for multiple purposes.

4. Baskets under seating area

Why waste floor space that can be utilized effectively? Here, large baskets come in handy to keep unsightly items that would otherwise litter the floor or gather dust in the corner of the balcony.

5. Floating table

Often we need a small table to keep items such as snacks and beverages when enjoying time out in the evenings. Here the space has been artfully designed with the help of an interior decorator to create a floating table and bar stools around it.

6. Bookshelf

When you have an enclosed balcony like this that does not allow any water seepage then why not use the region as a library to stack books neatly. Part of this space can also be used to set up another bookshelf to store essential files and official documents.

7. Enjoy a garden in the balcony

The challenge for the homeowners here was to enjoy the functionality of a full-fledged garden in a balcony, and the interior decorators have managed to transform the balcony to suit the need by using colourful plants on the railings and comfortable couches. The white planters are a perfect foil to the colourful furnishings, furniture and plants.

8. Stowable tools and furniture

The best way to manage balcony storage is to make smart utilization of space with creative arrangements. While garden tools here hang on hooks, the foldable table can be used to stack planters or for sitting to enjoy the weather. The combination of wall storage and floor space makes this a pretty place to relax.

9. Multi-functional seating ideas

The balcony here has multi-functional furniture wherein the seating arrangement has storage below it for multiple items that can be stashed in the region. Think about designing customized balcony seating with built-in storage like pull up seats or pull out drawers that can offer deep storage while acting as comfortable seating for discussions over coffee.
