Living in a high-rise city apartment? Then a balcony may be the only alternative to a garden and outdoor area you have access to, but that doesn't mean you need to feel restricted. The 14 chic balconies included in this feature are simple and attractive, allowing you to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. 

So, whether you are considering a simple garden, gorgeous seating or even an Al fresco dining area, our team of professionals included tips and tricks to make your balcony enchanting and eye-catching, regardless of your scenery.

1. The one with a wooden deck

This balcony is covered in a wooden deck, with a variety of modern chairs adding chic style to a comfortable space.

2. Potted plants

Be creative with your vertical garden and place potted plants against the wall. A hanging chair is essential for that enchanting romantic flair too.

3. Pallet it

Wooden pallets are affordable and easy to come by, allowing you to be creative with some DIY furniture.

4. Another dining room

Decorate your balcony as you would your interior, with a colourful rug, comfortable chairs and spacious dining table and you'll always have space for entertaining and socialising.

5. Sofa sophistication

Or opt for a light-coloured wooden floor and lovely L-shaped sofa to maximise space, while soft lighting is perfect for a romantic environment.

6. Sensational sea views
