Spring has Sprung! It’s time to get outside and enjoy that sunshine! In my renting experience, any outdoor space that is not shared is absolutely tiny and because garden-retreat roof top spaces aren’t really feasible for many renters, I have decided to compile some drool worthy outdoor inspo for your seriously small balcony.

The Garden Retreat

If you love gardening or having greenery around these balconies are for you!

You can achieve the garden oasis look by choosing plants of different heights. A more vertical plant will draw the viewers eye upward, while plants placed around it will make the plants look cohesive. Be careful not to use too much valuable floor space if your balcony is particularly tiny.

An option for those who enjoy a lot of plants, but don’t want to use up valuable floor space would be to use planters that perch on the side (or railing) of your balcony, or utilizing vertical space for something like a vertical herb garden (Click here and here to see how to’s for these herb gardens)

Al Fresco Seating

Maybe seating is more important to you than a garden retreat. If that is the case, here are some balconies that make the most of their small space with some strategic seating.

Budget Friendly Idea: Crate/Palette Seating! Push two crates together to form a bench, cover with patio cushions (see examples below)
