Cozy Balcony Ideas

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Arizona Resource Realty BR518926000

Private outdoor space is a dream of most people living in city apartments—even if it's just a small balcony.  If you're lucky enough to have a balcony, then you owe it to yourself—and all your friends—to make the most of it. This means doing more than putting out a lawn chair and calling it a day. No matter how tiny it is, your balcony has plenty of design potential. 

 

INSTALL A SWING 

Swing benches aren't just for porches, you know. If your balcony has an overhang, secure a swing so you can relax and look at the view from a greater height. Just add some throw pillows for comfort.

 

DRAW THE EYE OUTSIDE 

If you have a great view and your living room opens right out onto the balcony, draw the eye outward with strategic furniture placement. 

 

TREAT IT LIKE A LIVING ROOM 

Use a living room design formula on your balcony to ensure it's a place you'll want to spend time. Translation: two armchairs, a comfy couch, coffee table, pendant light, and area rug. Since it's an outdoor area, weathered pieces, and flea market finds will fit right in.

 

START A PLANT COLLECTION 

Now's the time to let your inner plant parent shine. If you don't have space for a full-blown rooftop garden, your balcony is a great alternative.

 

BRING IT TO LIFE WITH BLOOMS 

Window boxes are your friends! Balcony blooms like these will beautify an entire neighborhood. Besides, they can be even more stunning than a ground-level alternative, as the vertical perspective brings an interesting, unexpected dimension. Plus, it's one of the most comfortable balcony-decorating ideas around.
