Tip #1 Add some color

Your balcony space is definitely in need of some color with a gray concrete floor and plain white walls. There are plenty of ways to add some color and bring your space to life! Try adding a colorful patterned rug to cover up that gray concrete and also create the illusion of more space. Find some fun colored outdoor furniture, colored throw pillows, or other colored decorations from Pier1 Imports to brighten up your patio space.  


Tip #2 Cozy Furniture

Make your balcony somewhere to enjoy relaxing and lounging after a long day. Consider adding an outdoor daybed or a comfy cushioned chair. With the addition of some comfortable furniture your balcony is now the perfect spot for an outdoor nap or for curling up with a good book. Hammocks are also the perfect addition to any balcony.
