Outdoor Throw Rugs 

If you don’t like the look of concrete, try brightening the space with an outdoor throw rug. As a bonus, this will also be nicer to walk on barefoot than the concrete or wood deck/balcony you may have had before. 

 

Hanging Gardens

Generally speaking, space is limited when you have a balcony so traditional gardens aren’t an option, this allows for a great hanging garden space. You can use barely any space and yet have multiple baskets to grow veggies, flowers, herbs, etc. 

 

Rain Gutter Gardens

Ran Gutter Gardens have become quite the fad over the last year. Simply drill a few holes in the bottom of the gutters and attach them to either a fence, wall, or use twine to hang them outside. Shallow gutters are ideal for herbs as well as baby carrots and many different flowers and succulents.
