How to Personalize Your Apartment Balcony

There are a few things you can add to both your balcony walls and floors.

First things first, your apartment balcony is a part of the square footage of your apartment, too! An unused balcony equates to waste space when it comes to apartment living. There are a few things you can add to both your balcony walls and floors. Read on to learn how you can transform your apartment balcony into your new favorite outdoor hangout spot!

Wall Garden

This could come in the form of a type of vertical herb garden made of landscape fabric, a few hanging planters, or a trellis display. There are a few different options for when it comes to a potential wall garden aesthetic, but to ensure there is as little damage done to your external apartment wall as humanly possible, those are the top three we guest. So pick out your style, plants, and there you go.

Apartment Balcony Lights

You’re probably already picturing the larger sphere-shaped strung lights, which we do highly recommend to transform any type of outdoor space, but indoor lighting does wonders too. Try suspending indoor lights vertically inside of your balcony-facing windows to brighten up your space without the worry of installation. If larger strung lights are more your speed, make sure you start your installation process closest to the power source and work your way up from there. If you are using removable outdoor clips, then make sure they can bear the weight of your lighting string.


There is quite a market these days when it comes to any outdoor rugs. Different styles, sizes, and shapes allow apartment nesters and balcony lovers alike to lay down a rug that adds some zing and a pop of color or one that neutralizes the space. Small-rug layering is also “in” right now. There are various options for rugs and mats for your balcony, so don’t feel afraid to lay out whatever you want!

Removable Deck Tiles

Many furniture companies sell interlocking removable deck tiles. They usually come in the form of bamboo tiles and are sold in different colors. These simple-to-install deck tiles are a nice way to add some character to outdoor spaces.

Balcony Bar Table

All you need to complete this type of space-saving project are some slats of wood measured and cut to your balcony length, a drill, two hooks, L-angle brackets, nuts and bolts set, wooden screws, and exterior polyurethane. What better way to transform your apartment balcony than by adding a mini bar outside for you and your guests to mingle around. It is especially perfect for the summertime.
