Design Inspiration: Small Apartment Balconies

By Simone Design Blog @HomeSpire

If you live in an apartment or condo, you may have a small balcony or back deck. If so, you probably spend time there enjoying some fresh air during the warmer months. By adding the right design elements, you can create a charming and appealing outdoor living space for entertaining friends or for relaxing by yourself. Balconies and decks are extensions of your home, so when considering their design and decor you should take this into account and make them consistent with the design elements from indoors. You don’t need to spend a lot of money or time to make your balcony/deck inviting and comfortable. Below are some pictures I’ve put together to help inspire you design this small but special space.
