In the city, where there is a lot of hectic everyday life, the balcony is our most beautiful corner of paradise at home. It can be small, but nevertheless it is the place where you can relax after a long stressful working day. Depending on its size and function, transform this outdoor space into a cozy and comfortable outdoor oasis where you can really relax. Take a look at our list of ideas and get even more inspiration from it!
A table for two
A small table with two chairs is the classic on the balcony. This is the most common facility – functional and pleasant. The reason for this is clear – this furniture does not take up much space, but is perfectly adequate for two people. This design is particularly suitable for smaller balconies and encourages hours of conversation with a friend or a romantic dinner in the summer with your Darling.
Comfortable storage and bench in one
The comfortable bench that mimics a chest is a very practical solution for a medium sized balcony, but where there is not enough space for pots, blankets, pillows and more. Outdoor stuff gives. Create storage space covered with this decision on the balcony and at the same time – comfortable seat for several people.
The folding furniture is the best solution for the small balcony where the space is limited. The advantageous furnishing options are a folding top instead of a table, folding picnic table and chairs, folding sun loungers with cushions. Save even more room on the balcony by mounting flower stands on the outside of the railing and placing all the flowerpots there. On the side wall you mount two shelves where you can store little things or decorate them with beautiful decoration.
Outdoor living room
If your balcony is quite spacious, we recommend a nice outdoor living room. Set it up with a table and four chairs, or put two chairs and a bench there. So you can receive your guests outside in summer. In case the balcony has a south or west orientation, consider the possibility of placing a parasol or awning there. Opt for colorful textiles in the overall concept – deco pillows, blankets, placemats, to create a cheerful and lively atmosphere in the outdoor area.
At the beach
Create a cozy summery atmosphere on the balcony as if you were on the beach. People do not choose this option as often as it is complicated to find real loneliness in the city. If you live on a higher floor, do not worry about it. But if you live on the first to third floors, decorate the railings with green plants, an opaque bamboo or textile wall. If you have enough space, you should definitely choose sun loungers and parasols. Create a cheerful mood outside with colorful decorative elements. Put a small side table for your refreshing drinks and do not forget the sunscreen!
