How to get a bigger balcony – 6 best tips ever

Not all of us have a balcony or patio larger than the planet, like those we are brainwashed with from Elle Decoration & Co. No, in reality (where we are), most of us have a very small balcony. Then you also have to use balcony decor that is smooth and does not steal even more of the already small balcony area.

Inredningsvis here gives you 6 tips on smart balcony furniture for a normal balcony where actually ordinary people live :)

1. Hanging balcony table

This balcony table must be one of the smartest inventions EVER. For the small balcony save it incredibly much room to avoid a table leg. You can also sit and work at it and have it as a computer.

And we just hope you do not have an equally curious neighbor like the one in my first apartment :)

You find the blue hanging table HERE

Hanging balcony tables also works great to use for lovely flowers :)

2. Use small balcony furniture

By that I mean less furniture in lightweight flexible material. Forget the big wooden furniture or bulky ugly plastic furniture EUWWWW. No Buy instead small cute balcony furniture in lightweight fun painted aluminum.

Another great tips for decorating small balcony is always use a round table. Round tables have the tendency to make all rooms look bigger, when they do not have bulky leg that takes huge place.

3. Smart balcony pots

As the ones above and their name is fittingly On the edge and they come from adessostockholm Co

Do you have common balcony pots or window box so turn it inward balcony ist. for outward. I mean it’s choice you to enjoy your flowers are NOT the neighbors :)


4. Decorate your own personal balcony corner

Do you have such a super small French balcony so put a cushion over the floor. Decorate ago with some pillows and voila, you’ve got a small utesoffa to eat breakfast on. Better put all effort into a corner that you really want to snuggle in than to make a balcony for everyone else.

No balcony is too small to make a cozy corner and it also reminds us of the building of a hut as kids :)

5. More colors to the balcony

When it comes to the balconies so do not apply to fresh and bright. No, because a balcony is often wooden or ash worn. Make sure to use happy colors and use bright summery colors. This gives lovely inviting balconies with vibes from the Mediterranean style.

Taking in more color generally when you decorate, dare more and win more is my motto. I mean it’s not the neighbor who will like your balcony you are.

6. Let balconies flourish in abundance

Forget all minimalist dreary trends and advice. No, do you want a really green balcony so let it grow, but if you want to enlarge then let the plants remain around the balcony walls and railings. Grow then spices, berries, fruits yes everything is possible on a balcony as it often is so sunny.

A real greenhouse is also possible to have even if it’s a small balcony. There are now special designed small balcony greenhouse is the wall. Everything is possible on a balcony and no limits to what is right and wrong there :)

ALWAYS decorate with your heart cause it is YOUR balcony and also your haven to rest, dream away and enjoy. What is the worst thing that can go wrong and that is not going to do all over again :)

More color to the balconies :)
