With a little imagination and a knack for decorating, the once empty and ugly balcony can be transformed into a gorgeous space. In case you lack inspiration at the moment, but you still want to make a dramatic and impactful change when it comes to the design and decor of the balcony, read the following lines. Here, you will find out some gorgeous balcony decorating ideas from which you can draw your inspiration.
Coffee and relaxation area
Would you like to sit on the balcony, relaxing and admiring the breathtaking view of the city you live in while enjoying your delicious cup of coffee? Of course you do! This area of your home can become the new spot where you drink coffee in the morning and relax in the evening when you come from work by making some simple additions. First of all, you need to place a small table and two chairs in the balcony. Also, you can put a hanging seat like the one shown in the picture above in order to have a place where you can enjoy reading a book when the time allows it. Other important additions that you can make if you’re going with this idea are a couple of plants in containers, which will add to the beauty of the space, putting you more in touch with nature.
Just because you have guests over, it doesn’t mean that you all have to sit in the living room. If you turn the balcony into a hangout spot, whenever you have friends over you can sit, talk, and share a laugh here, all while breathing fresh air and admiring the gorgeous view. For this, you should place a comfortable outdoor sofa and at least one chair, like it’s shown in the picture above. In the middle, put a small coffee table where you can all place of your drinks and snacks. Also, don’t forget to put a lighting source here to have a more romantic and serene ambiance when night comes.
Cute balcony garden
Another gorgeous decorating idea that you can go with for the balcony is to fill it with flowers and plants. Sure, this won’t leave much space for you to place furniture pieces like sofas or chairs, but it will give this space a very natural and relaxing appearance. Also, it will free up room in the house in case you move plants in containers that you had laying around the living room and bedroom.
