Small Balcony Design Ideas

Most of us are guilty of avoiding our balconies and not maintaining them in the same way that we care for our house interiors. This is probably due to their limited spaces and scarce decoration options. However, do not worry! We have come up with some cool small balcony design ideas to redo your balconies irrespective of its size and live it up to its full potential!

Vertical gardens are unarguably one of the most trending balcony design ideas ! They are extremely picturesque and instantly provide your balcony with that greenery that it was missing! It is also one of the smartest ideas in case you have a small balcony and limited space. Rather than putting pots on the floor, you can just have them on the walls, and therefore, circulation and movement becomes more free flowing. We absolutely love vertical gardens in Parineeti Chopra’s home and how it adds that bit of character.

In case you are someone who wants to include a bit of color, then you can even go for colored pots as they really add a bit of spark!


A greater number of people are becoming health and hygiene conscious and that has led them to growing various herbs and spices in their own homes. You can even indulge in those home grown herbs in your balcony’s vertical gardens and have an organic garden with its fresh aroma wafting through your house!

Balconies are small spaces and are utility oriented and therefore, sometimes it becomes difficult to give it the right aesthetic makeover. This is where an alluring flooring comes into play! Wooden deck flooring is one of the best options for a balcony. They look so magnificent and bring a debonair class to the entire space. You can even mix it up with a section of pebbles to give it a rustic look!

Artificial grass floor is another trend that has been on the rise as it gives the entire balcony an exceedingly fresh and niche look and does not require any maintenance as well!

Our love for patterned tiles is not dying anytime soon! Just look how it provides such an interesting personality to the whole space in the picture above. If any of you are struggling with finding the right type of patterned tiles for your house then do check out our blog on home trends.

Of the most important things to be kept in mind is finding the correct furniture for your balconies. We generally come across metal chairs in balconies but move on and get yourself a wooden bench as it looks so rustic and natural! Make it interesting by playing with various colors and upholstery! We confessed our love for Irffan Khan’s colorful, homely balcony seating in our previous article on Irrfan Khan’s House and especially his unique tiled center table.

Who doesn’t enjoy relaxing and unwinding on a swing after a stressful day. Pamper yourself with these balcony swings and decorate them with pretty cushions to enjoy a good book in the natural light!

Balconies have a never ending supply of natural light and therefore, people do not pay a lot of attention to the sort of lighting that is needed in this area which generally consists of one ceiling light which acts as the ambient light. We came up with an article to discuss the various forms of lighting and its importance in various spaces as well! So do check it out if you believe that the lighting in your house is insufficient.

One of our personal favorites are lanterns! They give a very contemporary character and look so regal and majestic. You can hang them from the ceiling or also place them in various nooks and corners!
