5 Ideas For Decorating An Apartment Balcony

Living in an apartment means no backyard or big outdoor space, but it doesn’t mean you have to settle for an ugly outdoor area. Even the tiniest apartment balconies can be transformed into a beautiful haven for you to enjoy cool evenings outside. Here are 5 ideas for decorating a small apartment balcony. 

1. Unique Flooring

Perhaps one of the most unsightly parts of an apartment balcony is the concrete slab that serves as the floor. Tiles and decking in all designs and colors can be purchased and cut to fit the size you need. For a softer, cozier option, rugs and mats are perfect.

2. Cozy Seating

A balcony isn’t very useful without a place for you and your friends to sit. Adirondack chairs are a durable and comfortable single-seater option. Outdoor couches with storage can help you make better use of your space, and if you’re low on floor space a swing will do the trick. Floor pillows and mats create dimension and can be used as extra seating in a pinch.

3. Privacy Screen

A privacy screen will make your balcony feel cozier and less concrete, and also give you privacy from surrounding neighbors. You can personalize the screen as much as you’d like to fit your style, and add string lights to bring in warmth.

4. Favorite Plants

Turn your balcony into an urban jungle. Being a plant person in an apartment can be hard if you don’t get good light, but it doesn’t mean you have to give up plants completely. Take them outside and make your balcony an oasis. 

5. A Place For Your Pet

If you have a pet, your balcony can be a great place for them to play and get fresh air. Add fake grass, toys, food, water, and a soft spot to sleep, and your pet is guaranteed to love you. 

Fall Gardening with Dramm!

The Spring and Summer season has come and gone but that doesn’t mean gardening has to stop. That said, my husband and I are giving Fall and Winter gardening. I’m not sure about where you live but here in Zone 8 there are many things that can still grow and be harvested to eat and be ready for the months ahead.

While getting our garden plot going for the season, we’ve again turned to DRAMM a company that produces exceptionally good watering tools, accessories and fertilizers for the garden. I have been using their products since 2017 and am pleased to say those are still going strong! Click here for my previous review on the Rain Wand.
