Are you on the hunt for small balcony ideas? You’re in the right place: our balcony and patio decorating ideas will help you get the look of luxury, even if your space is limited. Here are five ways to create a blissful balcony getaway fit for relaxing and entertaining.

Build Beautiful Hanging Gardens

If you have a small bungalow or are light on outdoor space, you can still build up décor on a tiny balcony or patio with hanging gardens. This is an easy way to add textural interest and color to the space, having leafy greens, colorful flowers, or bold succulent shapes in constant view.

Air plants, colorful mosses, decorative stones and shells are all great accents for these hanging terrariums, which reflect color and light as they dance mid-air.

Plan a Private Patio Getaway

Who of us doesn’t need an outside space all our own to relax, gather our thoughts, and enjoy some fresh air and possibly a killer view (if we’re lucky)? Even in a small apartment, house, or condo, you can create your own private sanctuary on a balcony, patio, or deck with these creative privacy screen and hedge ideas.

Make it Modern with Metal
