Small, yet mighty, balconies are a dream of many city dwellers and homeowners. They are commonly underutilized spaces simply because people forget how many possibilities there are to decorate them. With curated outdoor balcony furniture and accessories, you can create a dreamy private space as an extension of your interiors that lets you take in fresh air and beautiful views from above.
With the weather warming up, now is the perfect time to give your balcony the makeover it needs. To provide some inspiration, we’ve pulled together three distinct designs with furniture from our favorite affordable home retailers. Whether your style is more modern, boho, or bright, we hope these looks help you fill your balcony with joy.
Outdoor Balcony Furniture Ideas
Look 1: Laid Back Contemporary
While the foundation of this balcony design is minimalist with neutral hues and clean lines, we’ve added funky textures and patterns to infuse this tiny space with dynamism. If you’re looking for outdoor balcony furniture for apartments, you should always think up rather than out. The focal point of this space is the vertical planter wall, which makes the space seem larger by emphasizing verticality rather than floor space.
To make the most of your space, forego large furniture in favor of chairs, like these lovely wicker ones from Target and a small side table. You can also add in a versatile floor cushion, like this braided jute version to serve as either an ottoman or additional seating whenever an extra guest is over. To tie together the colors of the rug and the floor cushion, add fun accessories like this geometric pillow.
Look 2: Urban Zen
Bringing together the city and nature, this blissful balcony setup is designed to promote ease in your everyday life. We’ve pulled together the best of both worlds – chunky shapes, exposed metal, and concrete to reflect the city and natural textures and materials like wicker, stone, and leafy plants to bring the element of nature.
Elevated and holistic, this balcony has striking details that create an even more striking appearance in person. For example, the coffee table is made with a carved acacia wood and a travertine top that is smooth and polished.
Imagine sinking into these comfy oval outdoor lounge chairs as you read the morning newspaper with a steaming mug of coffee. At night, you can light the candles in the black-coated iron lanterns and create a glowing oasis. This meditation on contemporary design creates a soothing balcony setup that we know you’re going to love!
Look 3: Blissful Haven
For those who appreciate a light, bright aesthetic, this stunning balcony set up provides a haven to relax. Intended for a larger balcony with space to accommodate a sofa and coffee table, this design creates a complete living room space in the fresh air. Everything has been curated to be easy on the eyes and lift the spirit.
As we’ve chosen to incorporate elements of beachy style with a large wicker sofa and braided area rug with fringe, this design would blend seamlessly in a coastal home. You’ll also enjoy the upscale boho features like the geometric print planters and marble candlesticks, which work well with chunky cream candles to create ambiance. Fill the planters with your favorite herbs or leafy houseplants to add a pop of green and a fresh scent to your space.
We’re all spending a bit more time indoors these days, so now, more than ever, our outdoor living spaces can…
We may be called interior designers, but we believe exteriors are just as important! Outdoor living areas are really fun…
