It's always been a requirement for most home owners to have balconies or porches in front of their houses which I completely understand. It's really nice to have a space to relax, drink coffee and get a breath of fresh air. However, the challenge in most cases is how to decorate a small balcony space and this is particularly true on apartments and condominiums where space is always limited.
You maybe surprised that there are a handful ways to design even a small balcony space but the common denominator on most designs I see, such as the designs here below is the presence of potted plants. To give your balcony space a "homey feel", plants should always be incorporated in your design. These should come in cute chic containers and painted anyway you like it.
Outdoor furniture should be kept to a minimum and should always consists of a coffee table and a couple of chairs. Other accessories, of course will be according to the space available but I guess, the lesser, the better. :)
Remember that fabrics and colors usually give a magic to your designs and depending on your personality and preference, this could definitely add to the overall impact and appearance of your small balcony. :)
Let not space define your limit!
