This spring and summer, all we want to do is spend time outside, which can be easily accomplished if you have an outdoor space like a balcony. Aside from giving you access to fresh air, a balcony can also double as a cute hangout space where you lounge, eat, read, nap, and more. To see what we mean, check out the following balcony decor ideas we're stealing from Instagram.


1. Cozy Neutrals

Between the neutral palette, soft glowing lights, and fresh flowers, we can't get enough.

2. A Corner Sofa Hack

That corner sofa makes this balcony look way bigger than it actually is.

3. A Hammock Setup

Just looking at this balcony hammock is making us feel more relaxed. Genius.

4. A Sweet Bistro Set

By adding a bistro set to your balcony, you can make it feel like a homey outdoor cafe.

5. A Garden Oasis

This balcony garden is made even better with the lounge chair addition. Now, you can take an outdoor nap amongst the greenery.


6. Black Accents

These black balcony accents make the space feel more modern, yet still welcoming.

7. Think Pink

When paired with the china tableware and vintage-cooking pillows, those pink accents are giving us understated cottagecore vibes.

8. Wall Greenery

To make your balcony feel as outdoorsy as possible, consider adding greenery to the walls and beams.

9. A Makeshift Canopy

This DIY canopy is both fashionable and functional. While looking cute and cozy, it can also give you a bit of sun coverage.
