While balconies serve perfectly to hang a clothesline, chat with neighbors and store all the junk, it is also the part of the house that is in full view of everybody. And believe it or not, people do judge books by their covers.

Here are six simple balcony decoration ideas that would make your balcony as beautiful as the rest of your house.


Planning a balcony interior design is tricky. You cannot go into a lot of elaborate details owing to factors like dust and lack of space. If you are facing such problems, need not worry.

All you need is a chair, a small tea-table, and a pretty little rag. Arrange the chair with the table in a corner and the rag in the next. If you play an instrument like the guitar, you can place it on a stand on the rag and strum away in your moments of solitude.

Go natural

Why not make your green spot in the space that is your balcony? It is rather simple to do. All you need are lots and lots of green plants potted innovatively— you can explore options like a tin can, and cold drink plastic bottles cut half from the top. You can add a sitting arrangement by using two sleek chairs with cushions. A rag is all that is needed to further the soothing effect.

Add a Small Table

All you need to enjoy your morning coffee on your balcony is a café table and a chair. Choose one that folds up easily so you can store it inside if necessary.

Give Yourself Some Privacy

If your balcony is right up against your neighbor’s, add tall plants like bamboo to create a natural wall. You can also hang bamboo shades that can be raised and lowered as needed.
