A private outdoor area is the dream of most people living in urban apartments – even if it is just a small balcony. (Or, let’s face it, an emergency exit.) If you’re lucky enough to have a balcony, you owe it to yourself and all your friends to make the most of it. That means doing more than cleaning a garden chair and calling for a day. No matter how small it is, your balcony has a lot of design potential. Looking for balcony ideas? Read on to find 34 balcony ideas and see how you can change your outdoor space from top to bottom.
All you need to have breakfast on the balcony is a table and a chair. Choose one that folds easily so you can keep it when you need it. Maximize your square footage with built-in benches. You also never have to worry about strong winds knocking down your furniture – or worse, letting it fly.
