How to Decorate A Tiny Apartment Balcony

Whether you're an avid host who entertains regularly, or you prefer to keep your space all your own, here are nine ways to amp up your apartment's balcony.

So you're blessed with an apartment balcony, but there's just one problem — it's tiny. Fret not, you can still style it like you've got an entire backyard. (OK, maybe not really, but you can try.)

Before getting lost on Pinterest for hours (or let's be real, days), check out the nine design inspiration ideas below. Happy decorating, and may your balcony be the best in the building. 

1. Table and chair set

Choose a table and chair set with a vibrant hue for a refreshing pop of color on an otherwise neutral balcony. 

2. Plants and pillows

Potted plants next to pillows make for an earthy and relaxing vibe.

3. Lighted Mason Jar

Strategically place a lighted Mason jar (or three) on a side table for a romantic feel.

4. String lights  

These aren't just for the holidays — wrap a set of string lights around your space to add a certain je ne sais quoi.

5. Hanging plants

Because no one ever tires of looking at plants that defy gravity. 

6. Mini palms

Upgrade your candle game with a mosaic votive holder (or any other stylish centerpiece). 

8. A little fountain

What better way to wind down at the end of a long day? The best part is they take up no floor space so you can add a carpet, candles, or other design elements.
