Just because you rent does not mean you cannot enjoy your outdoor space. We understand that decorating a small space such as a balcony can come as a challenge. That is why we have come up with this simple five-step process that is sure to add some charm to any outdoor space!
Step 1. Decide what colors you will decorate your outdoor space around. Nothing brings a place to life like color! Choose a color pallet and then stick to it. Try painting existing patio furniture in a bold cheerful color. You will be amazed how far a little paint will go!
Step 2. Assemble all your balcony furniture. Determine the square footage of your outdoor space and then plan round it. Make sure it all fits. Add a space saving table or a patio bistro set or try creating your own seating. A simple create and cushions will easily transform into seating. Make sure you have enough seating, especially if you plan to entertain outdoors!
Step 3. Work on defining your space. Use an area rug, deck tiles or artificial turf to define your outdoor space. If your space is small then the expense should be minimal for these items. Resist the urge to cover the balcony with trinkets that will just create clutter. Make sure your accessories are purposeful.
Step 4. Add more lighting. Open up your space and improve the functionality by adding more lights to your balcony. String some outdoor lights on your balcony railing or hang some chinese lanterns overhead. It is easy and the impact will be huge!
Step 5: Sit back and enjoy!
