If you have a small balcony, however, it may seem impossible to come up with the right design in such a confined area. No matter how small your balcony is, though, there are ways to maximize the space you have and create a functional outdoor room that suits your family’s needs. Here are several ways to decorate your small balcony. First, go green. One of the easiest, and most attractive things you can add to your apartment balcony is green plants. Even the tiniest balcony has room for a pot or two. Consider growing vegetables or herbs as a fresh alternative to store-bought produce. Then, add seating. If your balcony is large enough, adding a chair or two will give you a place to sit and relax while enjoying your outdoor space. For tiny balconies, consider an ottoman or stool instead of a chair.
Consider carpeting. Outdoor carpets and rugs have come of age. No longer limited to that rough, green indoor/outdoor turf, outdoor rugs now come in a variety of stylish patterns and textures. For a small balcony, such rugs are surprisingly affordable and make the space feel more finished and inviting. And also, don’t forget to light it up. Get your small balcony a little light with candles, both large and small, as well as battery-run lanterns. The soft light will give the space a romantic feel.
