If you are lucky enough to have a balcony at your disposal and are looking for ideas to turn them into beautiful spaces instead of keeping them basic, we are here to help. Whether you want to enjoy some peace and quiet or throw parties on your balcony, a well-designed space can make all the difference. Here are some of the best and most enviable balconies from homes we’ve designed so far.

#1: The Perfect Outdoor Seating

Equip your balcony with a sunshade

Who said you cannot have meals on your balcony? With this simple setup, it is easy to enjoy the outdoors and yet stay safe from harsh weather conditions. Check out the sunshade that is a must when you are planning a setting like this. We also love the fresh green vertical garden that is such a great addition.

#2: That’s Ideal for a Luncheon

Check out the lovely backdrop of the vertical garden

Gather your friends and family and invite them over. Why? Well, when you have a balcony like this, the question is why not! The perfect setup for a barbeque night against the backdrop of the city skyline, this is one of our favourite balcony designs. And the wooden table sitting pretty on wooden flooring is a winner.

#3: For Families to Get Together

Pull out that parasol and get the party started

For everyone who has a balcony but does not have the provision to cover it up, this one’s for you. Get a free-hanging parasol that you can carry around with you when you move. It comes in various sizes and you are sure to find the right one for your balcony.

#6: Kids Get Their Space too

Place bean bags in fun colours

Divide those balconies if you enjoy a good amount of square footage in that space. Give the kids a corner and see them stuck there for hours during the day. All you need to do is place some colourful bean bags and pouffes in a corner of your balcony and you’re done. Also, a suspended swing is a must in every boho balcony!

#7: The Dining Table Comes Out

Outdoor dining at its finest

So you love dining outdoors but the current situation does not allow you to do that. We get it. Just ditch the conventional dining area at home and move your dining table to your balcony. Tada! Your very own outdoor dining experience is ready. Decorate the walls with frames and wall art to give it a personal touch.

#8: Bar or Breakfast Corner?

Cosy corner for two

Bored of your regular bar-and-breakfast counter inside? Take a cue from this cute high table setup right here. With bar stools for company, this corner calls for some cosy time with a drink in those balconies. This requires minimal effort and gives you the feeling of owning your own rooftop bar area.

#9: Plant Lovers, Where You At?

Line your balcony railing with plants

Got a green thumb? Then flaunt it! And what better way to do it than on your balcony. This way, your plants get their share of fresh air and water and you get to relax in lush greenery. A compact balcony need not be deprived of decor or beauty. Take a hint from this one right here!

#10: Leave Some Free Floor Space

Folding furniture is a good choice

When you have one of those huge balconies, you need not use up the entire floor space to place furniture. You can get compact folding garden furniture and place it in one corner, leaving the rest of the floor free for leisurely strolls. Learn from this balcony.

#11: A Cosy Corner for Two

Rattan furniture is the perfect material for balconies

Would you believe this is the same balcony as the previous one? Yes, even after leaving so much free floor space, you can have another sitout in the other corner. Here, we have placed a rattan sofa and a rug that looks so snug. You can remove it when it’s raining outside.

#12: A Fully Functional Deck Area

A relaxed lounging zone created in the balcony

This is one of those balconies that you will want to build from scratch, just as these homeowners have done. They built this deck area just outside their living room because they wanted to have a relaxed dining area and lounging zone at home. Check out the plush use of warm wood in abundance.

#13: Who Needs a Reading Corner?

This is how compact balconies are designed

For all the singles out there, this balcony is just for you. A single rattan chair with a coffee table for company is what this balcony is made of. The cute wall shelf with plants is a great addition as decor and to add that element of freshness.
