Add a lounge chair
Even if your balcony space is pretty small, there’s still ways to include furniture to allow you to lounge away a sunny Sunday afternoon with a good book.

Give yourself the choice to dine al fresco
There’s nothing better than a delicious meal (with an equally delicious glass of vino!) eaten on the balcony when the weather allows. Now size might be a barrier here, perhaps try a folding option if you’re running out of space.

Light it up!
Lights (especially hanging lights) add a certain je ne sais quoi to every space. If your balcony feels a little dull or dim, try a string of bulbs or twinkly lights to add some sparkle of an evening.

Contain your flowers in boxes and pots
Begonias, petunias, hydrangeas, whatever your fave flower – try putting it in a a decent sized pot (to give the roots some room!) on your balcony to bring some life to that outside space. Go big on colour and use a balcony planter if you’re short on floor space.

Experiment with different flooring
Now this might be for the more DIY savvy among us, but there’s actually some pretty easy ways to completely switch up the look of the balcony. Change the decking to astroturf, decking tiles in a different colour or an outdoor rug to really give your balcony some individuality.
