- Having a balcony is amazing, but it’s also not unheard of for it to be small and cramped.
- If you’re wondering what to do with your tiny outdoor space, here are 12 furniture and decor ideas designed to help maximize your balcony.
Having your own private balcony is a huge plus. You begin to dream of all the coffee and little croissants (in your robe, of course) or the intimate dinners you can enjoy, and your daydream is in full force, but it never dawns on you that you’re currently looking at a 15-square-foot balcony.
Many balconies have exceptionally little wiggle room, but that doesn’t mean you can’t jazz it up tiny-house style with furniture designed for small areas and even decor that can hang from the walls or railings so it’s not taking up precious floor space.
Keep day dreaming because your little coffee and croissant date is about to come true.
Here are 12 pieces of furniture and decor for your small balcony:
A personal table that can attach to a railing
This foldable wicker table attaches directly the railing of a balcony, porch, or deck to be used as a personal desk or coffee table. It can be folded down when it’s not in use, and is weather-resistant and waterproof so you won’t have to worry leaving it outside either.
A vertical wall garden
Construct a vertical wall garden that can fit eight plants however you want both horizontally and vertically. This wall garden also comes with a built-in irrigation drip system that isn’t an eyesore.
A compact table and chair set
This compact bistro set is long and narrow, so it can easily fit on the smallest of balconies. And when you’re done eating, the chairs slide completely under the table so they’re out of the way. All three pieces are weather- and rust-resistant.
