Balcony plants and warm wood bring cosiness to this small outdoor space

This tiny balcony almost feels like an extra room; it’s warm, cosy, and has that enveloping room-like feeling as if you’re indoors. Featuring traditional-style outdoor furniture, wooden details, dangling plants, and plenty of style and space-saving tips, this outdoor space is a joy to spend time in.

The warmth of wood and the company of plants

The design of this outdoor dining set – with its thin legs and wooden material – gives a light and airy look, and brings warmth to the space. Note how we chose dangling plants and arranged them in such a way that it gives a cocooning, room-like feeling. Simply fold away the chairs and table for extra space.

Style a beautiful outdoor shelving unit

Outdoor shelves are not just for storing forgotten plant pots – why not display your plants and store items in an artful and inspiring way? Here, we placed light chains in a lantern, added plants with trailing leaves for a rustic feel, and stored chair pads vertically (just like books) for easy access.

The small details that make a big impression

Notice how a simple tea towel made this outdoor table into a rustic work of art. And check out how the floor decking instantly elevates the space with its light colour and subtle pattern. An odd empty floor space? We simply clicked on a cut-out piece of artificial grass to fill it in.

Let your balcony twinkle

This balcony exudes that warm, inviting feeling; it’s like a hug but in architectural form. What makes it oh-so-cosy is that it uses the magic of light in almost every corner. Light chains are strung on the railings, against the walls, and even jumbled in a lantern. Get all the lamps and let it glow!

Almost like an extra room in the house

The parasol not only provides shade but also adds to the sense of cosiness, and gives a room-like feeling to the space. The base is designed especially for small spaces, and can be placed flat against the railing. Add dangling plants, a soft colour palette, and plenty of lamps for balcony zen.
