Whether big or small, it’s the perfect time to make your balcony space more inviting to enjoy and relax in the cooler weather. Here are 3 simple steps to turn any balcony into a new, cozy hangout.

Rugs – Extend your outdoor space with colorful rugs and decorative pillows. For a cozy effect, hang fabric from the underside of your neighbor’s balcony. Be sure to ask your neighbor ahead of time as a courtesy.

Trunks and Crates – Use sturdy box crates as extra seating or side tables. Paint them to add color or leave natural, depending on the look you desire. Add cushions for comfortable sitting. A charming trunk can double as storage, especially for outdoor cushions.

Pots – Breathe a little life into your balcony with potted chrysanthemums, pansies and/or ivy.
