The outdoor season is in full swing and we like to stay outdoors as much as possible. But what if you live in a big city and you have almost no outdoor space? If you have a balcony, that’s enough to enjoy the fresh air! Even if it is small, you can set it up and decorate it so that you can feel great there. Do you need ideas? Here you are!
Chairs + A table
A couple of chairs or stools and a small table are classics for every small balcony. This way you can accommodate two people and eat or drink there. We strongly recommend looking out for foldable furniture as it won’t take up space when you don’t need it. The table can only be a foldable wooden surface attached to the balcony side to save even more space. Choose lightweight looking furniture so as not to clutter the small balcony.
A bench + a table
A normal or a corner bench is a good solution for slightly larger balconies: They offer space for more people at the same time and often have storage space inside. Add a small table – foldable or not – and possibly a chair, stool, or ottoman to accommodate another person. All of these pieces of furniture can include additional storage space so that you can keep your balcony tidy.
