If you dont wanna paint the balcony or add a whole new balcony floor, then a new carpet is the best option. Take a look above and notice the BIG difference a balcony rug can do quickly and cheaply.

Do not get caught in that it MUST be a plastic carpet made for the outdoors. Experiment wildly with indoor carpets and fancy leather for a contemporary look. A small orient style rug can be like in the picture above, gorgeous and unexpectedly on a balcony.
