A breathtaking view, refreshing air and a relaxing setting are all reasons why we insist on getting a home with a balcony. So wouldn’t it be a crime if you didn’t do it up with good seating? We have a few balcony seating ideas that suit modern balconies. Sit back and enjoy the view as you lounge comfortably.

Balcony Seating Ideas #7: Outdoor Living

Variety is the spice of life

If you have a long and spacious balcony like this one, you can turn it into an outdoor living room of sorts. Add a rug, a console and centre table with a variety of seating arrangements. So you can have cushioned stools and ottomans as well as high chairs to enjoy a bird’s eye view. Also, it is important to keep the furniture light, so go for a wicker sofa and chairs.

Balcony Seating Ideas #8: Garden Seating

Poufs and stools for seating among greens

When space is scarce and you want to make your balcony as green as possible, go for poufs and stools. These seating options come in vibrant colours and are easily movable. So you can allot the maximum amount of space to growing plants in your balcony and carry a pouf or stool out whenever you want to enjoy sitting in your personal garden.

Balcony Seating Ideas #9: Flexible Setting

Time with nature

If you’re not comfortable leaving furniture on your balcony or are scared of exposing it to the rain or sun, opt for foldable seating. You can choose to rearrange them depending on your need and don’t have to worry about space constraints as it can be stacked away easily.

Balcony Seating Ideas #10: Lay it down

For more compact balconies, you can use a carpet or artificial grass that can comfortably seat you. You can add some floor cushions too for comfort. This way you won’t have to struggle with furniture and still spend quality time lounging on your balcony. Here’s a new spot for you to do those Suryanamaskars or for your kids to play.

Balcony Seating Ideas #11: A Comfortable Wooden Deck
