Almost all of us dream to have a cozy balcony, where we can spend a whole day for reading, napping and having fun. You’ll be able to turn your balcony in one of those areas that provide comfort and could become a place to have a romantic dinner there. If you aren’t interested in that you might turn it into a little home office or a small garden. You’ll learn that even though balconies usually aren’t very spacious they could be functional and cozy anyway.
There’s no better place than a balcony to bring the outside into your apartment. Here are some ideas you might want to consider designing your balcony:
Go vertical. Using balcony walls to hang pots or shelves on save might save you some space.
Consider using a fold-down table. If you want your balcony to become your breakfast nook without losing its other functions that might be a way to go.
Keep it simple. A tiny balcony doesn’t need lots of furniture.
Combine things. A daybed could feature lots of storage under those cozy cushions.
Create privacy. Don’t forget to add curtains. They might also protect you from sunlight if necessary.
I know I’m not the first to crave an outdoor escape in the midst of city life. For those lucky enough to have even the smallest balcony, here are some ideas for making it into a beautiful retreat. And for the rest of us, these dreamy pictures are here to provide a virtual getaway.
