Having a balcony on your home really is a dream, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to function. There are so many ways to decorate and furnish it, and you, too, can transform your balcony into the most-used and loved space in your home with these easy-to-follow recommendations.
Decide how you’d like to use the space. Will it be your summer WOH office? Is it your favorite spot for al fresco dining? Is this your only at-home outdoor space for gardening?
Then, identify your biggest needs: do you need privacy, multiple seating options, a surface for working, shade, a garden space? How you plan to utilize your space will influence your furnishings and decor. If you’re wanting it to be a functional space for entertaining, focus on seating. If you’re limited on space and just want the ability to pop outside for privacy, 1-2 chairs is sufficient.
Measure your balcony before purchasing furniture. A full patio set likely won’t be an efficient use of space, so make sure you know the size of the space before making any big purchases.
