Create your own paradise where you just want to spend your days, and cannot wait to return to after a long day at work. You do not have to travel far, or spend a lot of money, to have your own little slice of heaven if you are one of the lucky ones to have your own balcony. Change your outdoor space, however tiny it is, into a stylish spot to have a mini break whenever you want to.

Artificial grass is great for two reasons. First of all it is budget friendly, and second of all it transforms a space within minutes.

Outdoor Half Umbrella

Watch out for the sun! Half umbrellas are perfect for tiny spaces.

Outdoor Curtains

Great to keep nosy neighbours away and add character with curtains. The timeless 60-30-10 rule might be useful when you are planning what colours to pick. 60% of a main colour, 30% secondary colour, and 10% of chosen accent colour.

Bench

Possibly for a slightly bigger spaces, benches are a very practical addition especially when you can store things inside them. The rule 60-30-10 is easily visible here, white acts as main colour, beige is secondary, and green adds an accent. Picking colours with this rule provide an easy guide and balance for anyone new to interior design. Of course you can be adventurous and find your own perfect balance.

Dreams can come true in the form of a cosy hammock.

Cushions

When things get tough, just jump on one of big cushions. Pillows can absolutely work as a something to seat on if there is not enough space for a bench. In the mood for a bit more of a boho style?

Hanging Balcony Table

Another great space saver! No, I am not talking about the hanging chair. Instead of usual table a hanging one is out of the way, and even better when it is a foldable. Breakfast with a view? Anytime and anywhere! Yes, please!

Hanging Chair

My personal favourite without a doubt, I love how stylish the whole space looks with neutral colours and a hanging chair. Just think about those countless hours spent with a book slightly swinging.

Hanging Barbecue 

If we have a table the next logical thing to have is obviously hanging a BBQ! Yay for the idea!

Mini Garden

Time to visit your grandparents and check if there is an unwanted wooden vegetable crate. It will add a rustic touch to any balcony.

Fairy Lights

Is there something better than sipping a glass of wine in such a romantic settings, which by the way, everyone can create? I did not think so! Simple fairy lights, often easy to find in your local Poundshop, magically transform any space.

Fairy lights allow anyone to get creative with how and where they are hanging. If there is an unused ladder, this might be one of the ways to lighten up a space.

Did I miss anything? What else can help transforming balcony into a little paradise?
