“Decorating golden rule: Live with what you love.”
Listen up! If your apartment living space comes with a small balcony, there’s no reason not to transform that outdoor space into the comfort of a lounge space. Instead of wasting your balcony space with wilting plants or broken outdoor furniture, you can design a personal haven to retreat to when you want to relax!
Here are some design ideas for you to consider:
If you're a lover of the minimalist theme, we present you with two balcony ideas: the Chic and Modern Balcony or the Sleek Minimalist Balcony
Aside from the customary black and white, add in a few potted plants, either at the corner of the small balcony or on top of a small coffee table. Arrange a couple of seat cushions that complement both the space and style. This will create the perfect minimalist look without being too bland.

A well planned tiny balcony can double as a spot for dining and lounging!
Choosing the right design ideas can make your balcony appear roomier without being out of the era. Get a small bench with a few new throw pillows and place an outdoor rug or mat on top of the artificial grass. This balcony will give you the homey feeling you need when you return from work.

Not enough space for furniture?
Some of the best balcony decor ideas include outdoor furniture such as a storage bench with a wall panel. It can replicate as a small garden without occupying much floor space. Throw in some floor pillows, add a mat, and you’re good to go!
Get yourself an artificial vertical garden!

A nature lover? Well, show off that green thumb by turning your balcony into a mini jungle
Instead of the atypical potted plants, flaunt your creativity by getting yourself a vertical garden! After all, hanging planters are all the rage now and are the best space-saving solution for your tiny balcony. Install those planters along the balcony railing, and ta-da! You have successfully brought the suburbs to the city.
Why stop there? Maximize your experience with GreenTurf Asia's Green A.R.T., an artificial floral centrepiece steeped in Petrichor - the scent of earth after rain - to recreate the illusion of walking amongst the greenery!
Planning on having a romantic date night on your balcony?
While it is a little difficult to recreate the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, we recommend you get some string lights. Wrap them around the railing or hang them overhead, and you’ll create an intimate mood for a magical night.
Use colours and patterns to make your balcony stand out
Extroverts – go for a bold colour like red and match it with furniture made of woods – teak, cedar or redwood. It will create a warm and homely feeling for when your friends visit you! Alternatively, you can also opt for playful colours with small succulents that would showcase your balcony’s uniqueness.

For those who love a more abstract style, get outdoor tiles and decorative pillows that match your chosen colour scheme or palette. Make your balcony feel like a natural part of your living area with patterned tiles like the delightful geometric pattern. If you’re unsure what type of furniture will complement your themed balcony best, wicker furniture is always your safest bet!
