Decorating outdoor spaces is a dream come true. 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. There are reasons that we love spending time on balconies, having a cup of tea in the morning, enjoy evening meals and late-night conversations. You can design your own balconies without spending too much money and make your own private space.
Here are some ways to transform your small balcony into a cosy, stylish space:
Balconies look best when some greenery is added into it. Intensify with lush plants to create a fresh look. Add some herbs so that your balcony can smell good. You can place ice buckets and put flowers near the sittings. You can hang or place potted plants to finish the whole look and will add colour to it.
2.Install a swing
A swing will look exceptional in your balconies, you don’t need to buy so much furniture. It will also give you a great view as it will be on a certain height. Add pillows and cushions to make it more comfortable. This is easy to put together, looks great and keeps the design cohesive and smart.
For cosy and small spaces, a small table would be enough, it will take less space and sufficient for cups and small cutleries. You can decorate that table with candles, a small potted plant, a small cage with a tea candle, books or lanterns which will magnify the whole table setting.
4.Light it Up
To enjoy your late-night time with your friends or family, you can add fairy lights or bulb lights to illuminate the balcony. You can also go for string lights or outdoor lanterns or wrap some string lights around the railing. Lights add some different kind of vibe to the whole mood.
5. Opt for folding furniture
Try installing furniture that can be tucked or folded away when not in use. This folding table disappears to free up floor space. This will be easy for you if you have a small space or balconies.
6. Use Indian Furniture
If you like loud colours and bright balconies, you should choose Indian furniture that shines and doesn’t look boring. You can use handcrafted Indian cushions, rugs and throws to keep the vibe. Colourful potted plants, old trunks, frames, lanterns and wall hangings can be used to decorate your balcony. You can choose painted benches and cane chairs for your furniture.
7. Wall Space Decor
Walls are the focal point when someone enters the balcony. You can attach flower pots or plants, add a wood palette with mason jars and add plants inside it. Window boxes with blooms beautify an entire wall, attach frames with quotes, baskets full of flowers, ladder or wall rugs.
8. Go for Vibrant colours
If you have a dark background like intense greenery, or even dark timber flooring or furniture, add pops of colour to bring your space to life. You can do this by adding colourful cushions, throw rugs, flowers, and other pieces of decor.
