Cushioned Bench

Many apartment balconies are small, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be royally adorned. While there may not be room for full size Muskoka chairs, a good bench, complete with outdoor-ready cushions, can be the perfect fit. A two seater will provide all the deck lounging you’ll need. Check it out.

Flowers and Veggies

Balconies are ideal for growing flowers and veggies. While exposure to sun is generally preferred, as long as there isn’t all-day shade you should be able to grow flowers and plants including edibles like herbs, tomatoes, cucumber, and hot peppers. With a little TLC they will blossom. Even the most space-limited patio can be turned into a micro-garden of eden. Read more.

Twinkle Lights

Despite the name, twinkle lights (better known as string or rope lights) are both hip and functional. Don’t be fooled, they’re not just for Christmas. A small balcony can get a lot of mileage out of just one string, adding atmosphere and a welcoming nighttime glow. The price is definitely right as well. Find out more.

Table for Two

Patios of any size, especially the small ones, should still be functional. While entertaining a host of friends might be tough, a table for two should be doable. A plethora of styes and options abound. Opt for options that are easy to store like folding, collapsible, and hanging versions. These are excellent for odd angled, small sized balconies that don’t have room for furniture to be out 24/7. Read more.

Outdoor rug

The majority of urban balconies are made of concrete, so it’s essential to warm them up a bit. Thankfully there’s a big range of sturdy yet fashionable outdoor rugs and carpeting that can make your balcony space feel more cozy and liveable. If you want to go vintage, don’t forget the old-school Florida-style throw-back, astroturf!

Timbercreek hopes this list has given you some fresh decor ideas for decking out your balcony this season. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.
