7 Small Balcony Ideas For Apartment Living

Vines that grow quickly can provide shade for your balcony from incoming sunlight and curious neighbors.  Grab a few trailing plants and let them run amok throughout your area for a striking effect. As they expand, a trellis or wire can support them. You can even use them to hang fairy lights for a mystical effect around the room.

Add Privacy with Vines

Make the most of your rooftop balcony, if you're fortunate enough to have one, by setting it up festively. Though the view is undoubtedly the main attraction, the outdoor chairs and string lights truly make the room pop. What about the sheer curtain that was blowing in the wind? We're taking this exact concept for our upcoming outdoor party!

Entertain Al Fresco

Is there anything more satisfying than being able to go outdoors and gather the ingredients for your dinner from off the vine? We believe not. All you need are your favorite herbs or vegetables, a few lightweight pots, and some high-quality soil.

Plant an Edible Garden

Ambient lighting is a powerful tool that you should never undervalue. There is an air of ethereality and dreaminess to the room due to the twinkling lights pouring down from the ceiling, and the transparent glass fence keeps the bright cityscape beyond clearly visible.

Light It Up!

You can still create a lavish look for your balcony by making the most of the vertical area even if it isn't large. Place a mirror or artwork up against the wall, or suspend plants and wind chimes from the balcony railing or ceiling.

Use Vertical Space

How can a simple pallet seat be transformed into a backyard haven? Textiles, naturally! If your balcony is lacking in blankets and pillows, this is one of the simplest and least expensive methods to update.

Stock up on Textiles

There's no reason your workplace space needs to be indoors if you work from home. Create a temporary desk to maximize the space on your balcony. Natural light and fresh air can greatly increase your productivity.
