If you’re currently living in an apartment, you already know that space is limited. When you moved in, you had big plans for your apartment balcony, but in the hustle and bustle of your busy life, those plans more than likely got shoved to the bottom of your to-do list. Now is the time to transform your apartment balcony into space for both you, your guests, and pets to enjoy. Here is how to turn your apartment balcony into a cozy space for reading, socializing, writing, or even a candlelit dinner!
Add Comfortable Seating
If you want to create an inviting outdoor space for your apartment balcony, the first thing you’ll need is somewhere to sit down and relax. To start, find some patio furniture that suits the size of your balcony, as well as your lifestyle needs. Opt for some smaller tables or chairs that can fold up for storage when they’re not in use. If you’re looking to create a private getaway space, choose an oversized comfy chair rather than smaller seats that are more suited for groups.
Lay Out Some Snug Rugs
When you’re looking for potential apartment balcony ideas, remember that your goal is to add extra living space to your apartment. One way to do this is by adding some cozy outdoor rugs to your apartment balcony, which adds visual color and interest. If a larger outdoor rug is out of your budget, lay some smaller rugs, and get creative.
Whether you’re using your apartment balcony as a space for relaxation or entertainment, you’ll want lighting options that allow you to truly enjoy it after sunset. Holiday lights are a fantastic option if you’re on a budget, but if you’ve got some money to spend, choose string lights with replaceable bulbs. These stands tend to last a bit longer, and look slightly more upscale. If you have space for smaller tables, consider adding some outdoor lamps on top of them to light up your apartment balcony even more.
Do you happen to have some nosy neighbors? If so, there are some solutions. Shield all of your apartment balcony shenanigans from snoopy eyes with a balcony privacy screen. Purchase an inexpensive fabric screen online, or place down a couple of tall plants (such as bamboo or a smaller potted tree) to create a privacy barrier that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
