Living in a high-rise apartment and enjoy the luxury of having good breeze in the balcony? You should definitely add seating and throw in some colourful cushions to the scene!

A meditative spot

Your balcony can be a space for relaxation and meditation. Place a Buddha statue in front of a waterfall and add some ambient lighting. Your very own meditation/yoga spot is ready in no time.

For a casual, chic look, add a grass mat and some benches made out of reclaimed wood. Wall and railing planters will add to the look while keeping the vibe minimal.
