Balcony chairs

Comfy garden chairs

Have your morning cuppa out in the fresh air, or while away the hours curling up with a summer read and watching the world go by. Try a stackable garden chair on small balconies or create a holiday-space-at-home with a deck chair.

Add a small side table as a spot for your coffee, plants or maybe a candle or two.

Small balcony ideas

If space is tight, you'll want to maximise every square foot you have - including your balcony. Here are three ideas for how to transform an underused balcony, whether you want a space to socialise, an outdoors retreat, or a miniature garden.

Choose a small but mighty bistro set

Make room for two with balcony-friendly garden furniture. This is ideal for dining outdoors in the evenings or enjoying a few drinks with friends on a sunny afternoon.

Plant some greenery

Want a garden of your own? Why not create one on your balcony? With some outdoor-proof planters and a few tools, you can carve out a space for bright and beautiful flowers, some lush greens or maybe your own private herb garden.

Get foldable furniture

Extra seating without losing floor space? Yes, please. Make room for more with patio sets and sun loungers that fold flat and can be stored away. Perfect to pull out when you're hosting or want to catch some sun.

Make it your own with outdoor accessories

Get cosy with cushions and rugs

Be extra comfy with cushions to suit your style: try a clean, minimal look or vibrant prints. Floor cushions or outdoor rugs are ideal for renters who don't want to invest in furniture.

Add personality with solar lighting

Solar lighting is an easy, energy-efficient way to transform your balcony. Pick a conversation-starting lantern or add ambience by wrapping some string lights around your railings.
