Who doesn’t love a great balcony or patio? It’s all about getting creative with your balcony décor. With the right inspiration, these spaces can be transformed into a peaceful retreat, an oasis of serenity, or the perfect spot to enjoy a drink.
Regardless of the size of your balcony or patio, we’ve got 5 can’t-miss balcony décor ideas for you!
Indoor and Outdoor Living
Make your patio or balcony feel like an extension of your apartment with comfy and durable outdoor furniture. You can extend your living space outdoors with pillows and great pops of color. Don’t forget plants too! The Spruce has tons of great tips to maximize your balcony and create that indoor/outdoor environment.
Make It Bright and Welcoming
Nature is so vibrant and you should consider reflecting that brightness in your balcony décor. We love that House Beautiful recommends that you choose bright furniture for your balcony or patio. It can be so welcoming! Plus, think about how furniture can be multi-functional. For example, rather than a coffee table, opt for an ottoman that can serve as a table or footrest.
Don’t Forget the Rug
Simple touches can make a big difference when it comes to balcony décor. One example? Apartment Therapy reminds us not to forget the rug. Choose an outdoor rug that can help tie your outdoor space together. You can be bold and colorful, play with textures, or go the minimalist route. No matter what you choose, a rug can be central to your design success.
Maximize Your Space
No matter how large or small your outdoor space is, it’s important to think about how you can maximize that space to make it as efficient as possible. Architectural Digest has some great ideas, including small tables, floor pillows, and folding furniture. Focus on making your balcony or patio work for you.
Bring the Green with a Garden
Reimagine your balcony or patio by planting a garden. You can enjoy the added greenery and even grown herbs and vegetables to use in your kitchen! A balcony or patio offers an ideal space to plan and plant your very own garden. The best part is that planting a balcony garden doesn’t have to be difficult. We shared some great tips for planting a garden in a previous blog post. Check it out!
We believe it’s how you live that matters. All our apartment homes come with a patio or balcony and you should maximize this space. We hope these balcony décor ideas bring you some inspiration. Happy decorating and designing!
