Ideas on decorating your very small balcony are endless.

See the awesome decorating ideas presented here, to inspire you with your balcony decoration.

While it might seem difficult at first, even the smallest balcony can be turned into a cozy retreat with some simple seating, plants, and a little imagination.

Small balconies present big challenges. What is the shape of your balcony: short and square or long and skinny? Enclosed, covered, or open to the elements? Deck-style flooring or concrete slab? Knowing these things will help you determine what kind of furniture, plants, or accessories will work best, and what won't work well at all. Putting a wide bench on a narrow balcony won't leave you much room for anything else.

A good rule of thumb would be to use furniture that mirrors the shape of the balcony.

Enjoy the beauty of nature. If your balcony is very small, consider turning it into a flower and herb garden. Mix up colorful perennials, seasonal delights, hardy ivies and herbs that you can use in the kitchen. Get a sturdy stool and a soft cushion for the seat so that you’ll enjoy working your own private garden. Make sure you water regularly, fertilize your plants, and keep them trimmed. This will keep it looking like paradise.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. One of the easiest way to make your balcony more comfortable is to add a chair or two and a small table. You’ll be able to have a place to sit and admire the view, have a pleasant conversation, or simply enjoy an afternoon snack.

Be creative. Express yourself and make the balcony your own—it’s your living space, after all.

Paint the walls. Then decorate as appropriate with pillows in complimentary colors, alternating shades and hues of the color, different fabrics, and different textures.

Hang pictures, window boxes, calendars, decorative thermometers and barometers, and things that make you smile. Of course, make sure they’re all weather-resistant.
