17 Cute Balcony Decor ideas for the Balcony of your dreams:
1. Adding Greens:
Adding greens is such an easy way to bring your balcony to life. You could add planters and plants in different shapes and sizes to immediately give your balcony a face lift. Plants add such a calming vibe to your space and are extremely affordable and renter friendly too.
If you do not trust yourself enough to take care of living plans, add some fake plants. Just a touch of greenery will light up your balcony.
Speaking of lighting up your space, how about some fairy lights in your balcony. Or maybe even some lanterns or candles. Adding lights to your balcony will transform the space into a magical wonderland by evening and this will definitely be your hangout place to watch sunsets from now on.
Seating is probably the most crucial part while decorating a balcony. You want to be able to enjoy the space you have created in the balcony and you’d want some cozy seating for that. So think about when you’ll be using your balcony the most and figure out seating accordingly. If you want it to be a breakfast nook or a place for you to enjoy your morning coffee, then consider adding a rustic table and a few iron chairs, with cushions of course.
4. Grow some veggies:
This will need some maintenance at your end, but having a “kitchen garden” in your balcony is truly rewarding. It can be such a therapeutic time for you, when you spend your mornings harvesting fruits and veggies that you have grown yourself.
You’d be surprised to find out how many vegetables you can grow in pots. And if you want to take things slow, why not start with a small herb garden instead. they are super easy to maintain as well.
5. Vertical garden:
If you are short on space, try a vertical garden in your balcony. They are extremely popular right now and super easy to make using some old pvc pipes. They are extremely budget friendly as well. You could also make one with hanging wooden shelves and adding small planters.

7. A cozy romantic picnic:
If you do have a big balcony and have some space, consider turning it into a cozy romantic date spot. No need to buy a daybed even. We made ours using wooden palettes and an old foam mattress. Just add in a couple of cushions, a throw and some fairy lights and there you have it.
8. A Swing:
Adding a swing is such a cute balcony decor idea. And the best part is that swings come in all shapes and sizes. If you have a small balcony consider an egg swing, or maybe even a chair swing for a more bohemian look. If you do have a bigger space, you could opt for a daybed swing, which will make your balcony the perfect place to chill with friends.
9. Outdoor dining:
If you do have a bigger space, why not make the best use of it by turning it into a patio style outdoor dining space. Just make sure to get outdoor furniture and washable cushions and you’re good to go.
10. Reading nook:
Turning your balcony into a reading nook is a dream come true if you enjoy reading. I love spending my mornings sitting in my balcony, reading a good book and sipping on warm chai, before the busy work day begins.
