Decorating Tips for Your Patio or Balcony

Palisade Rental Home with a Retro Style Balcony As a tenant, creating a comfortable living space is an important part of making your Palisade rental feel like home. The same holds for your outdoor living spaces, too. If your rental home has a patio or balcony, it may seem like a challenge to decorate it. But, in reality, with only a few creative touches, you can add décor that will make your home’s exterior just as inviting as the inside.

One effective and creative measure to decorating a patio or balcony is to add some greenery. Plants are a great addition to any room, inside or out. On a balcony or patio, it is easy and uncomplicated to fashion fascinating groups of pots, flower boxes, or other green elements. By doing so, you invite natural beauty into your outdoor living spot.

Another constructive and creative practice to dress up a patio or balcony is with colorful furniture, cushions, or even curtain panels. Just because your patio or balcony is outside doesn’t mean it can’t be just as comfortable as a living room. Put in several durable outdoor furniture pieces to invite relaxation, paired with some bright pillows. To fortify the feel of the space, consider adding an outdoor rug.

Outdoor rugs are weather-resistant and washable, making them a great option for those added touches of comfort. For still greater drama, look into incorporating outdoor curtains or even sheer curtain panels to one or more sides of your patio or balcony. Filmy curtains flowing in a cool breeze may be just what you need to completely make your outdoor spaces appear and feel like a home.

For an extra whimsical approach to a patio or balcony décor, try hanging a porch swing, hammock, or strings of lights. Hanging swings, chairs, and hammocks can promote both comfort and relaxation while adding the vibes of a beach getaway to your home’s exterior. Hanging décor like lights, paper lanterns, or even pottery can add both beauty and whimsy to a balcony or patio, forming a fascinating space easily accessible to use day or night.

If you have a very small patio or balcony, that doesn’t mean you can’t improve it. For small spaces, think vertically. You definitely could hang a decorative shelf on one wall and fill it with potted plants, ceramics, and other knick-knacks. An additional effective option may be to put an awning or decorative screen. Either will help provide both shade and privacy, and give your outdoor space a customized overall look and feel.

If your patio or balcony is your favorite gathering place with family and friends, continue and design your outdoor décor around entertaining. You could integrate a rolling bar cart for easy access to cold drinks and other refreshments. If big outdoor furniture isn’t your style (or in your budget), consider adding pops of color with decorative footstools, ottomans, or even large floor cushions. In such a way, you present both seating and eye-pleasing decorative elements for your guests at once.

Regardless of how you yearn to use your balcony or patio, innovative and creative touches such as these can make it fun and easy to give it both the form you want and the function you desire.
