Make the most of your balcony with furniture that fits easily while it provides you with sufficient space to have a drink, a lunch, or use your laptop to do some work in the afternoon sun.
Adjustable furniture that nests or can be folded when not needed, items that hang from the balcony railing, and other clever balcony furniture designs help you enjoy the limited outdoor space you’ve got.
1. Folding Rope Lounge Chair
Imagine if you could infuse the comfort and coziness of a hammock into a lounge chair. Good news! You don’t need to imagine. The Folding Rope Lounge Chair is as comfy as it gets.
The seat and back are formed by cords that hold your body weight much like a hammock. It also helps that Element has a sturdy wooden frame that gives you full support as you sit back and relax. Looking for a more affordable option? Check out the Patio Sense Cording Folding Chair.
2. Keter All Weather Patio Set
This table and chair set is made from sturdy grey or brown resin wicker. The legs of this furniture set are made of metal giving it a modern outdoors look. But with its narrow footprint, it’s designed to fit easily on a balcony.
The Keter All Weather Patio Set has just enough space on the tabletop to hold a meal for two.
3. Adjustable Hanging Balcony table
If you live in a small apartment, you’ll probably find that putting a table on your balcony means you’ve got no room for anything else out there – including yourself.
This semi-circular table clips to the balcony railing, so there are no legs to get in your way. It’s height-adjustable, and flips down to lie flush against the railing when not in use. Hit the link to learn more about this Hanging Balcony Table.
4. 3-PIECE KNIT FURNITURE SET
This 3-Piece Knit Furniture Set has the cosy look of a chunky knit, but with the weather-resistant toughness of polypropylene.
Though they look like squishy cushions, the two poufs are actually hollow inside, and the matching end table can be fitted inside them for easy storage. The table has a removable tray top which hides a further 10 gallons of storage space inside.
5. The Balcony Bar 3-Piece
This powder-coated aluminium set consists of a narrow bar-style table and two stools and is designed so the stools nest under the table, to maximize floor space when not in use.
6. Viva Self-Watering Balcony Railing Planter
It can be a chore keeping plants alive on a balcony: strong winds and bright sunlight mean that planters can dry out in a matter of hours.
The Self-Watering Balcony Planter has an internal reservoir which releases water slowly into the soil, saving you from the chore of twice-daily watering in summer. It has a strong hook to suspend it from a railing, and is made of UV-stabilised polypropylene.
7. TAoTronics Touch Sensor Lamp
The TaoTronics Rechargeable Touch Sensor Lamp does it all. Use it as a outdoor light on your balcony or for your outdoor lighting for parties, but it also as a night light or bedside reading lamp.
Don’t miss these outdoor portable lanterns.
Even outdoor furniture can be multifunctional. Convert-A-Bench is both a regular bench and a table. You simply flip the backrest up and over to transform the bench into a table. Put two of them together to form a spacious picnic table for the family.
When you’re done, just flip it back! Convert-A-Bench is weather maintenance-free, so you don’t have to waterproof it, and cleaning is easy with a quick wipedown.
9. Flash Furniture Steel Folding Patio Table
Folding down to just a few inches thick, this balcony table is ideal for entertaining. At 25 pounds in weight with a top of 5mm tempered glass, it’s sturdy enough to put weight on, but light enough for one person to put up without help.
The Steel Folding Patio Table seats up to four, and its coated metal frame means you can leave it outside for long periods without worrying about rain damage.
10. EMSCO Easy Picker Grow Box
As a gardener, I understand the allure of growing your own food. However, it’s tough to have a green thumb when you live in a small space. It’s a piece of balcony furniture you can use to create your own garden in snug spaces.
EMSCO’s Grow Box comes equipped with a mulch cover, aeration screen, and water tube for easy, even watering. Caster wheels let you move the box inside during colder, harsher weather.
11. Folding Steel Bistro Set
This Grand Patio Bistro Set is constructed of painted stainless steel, weather resistant and is ideal for those with limited storage space.
They are foldable and lightweight and take up little space when closed, so you have several options as to where you can store them away neatly. Available in bright colors: black, white, red, yellow, mint green or blue.
