How to design the small balcony…
Yes, unfortunately, not all of us can enjoy a spacious balcony. However, small balconies also have their charm and provide us with pleasant rest and relaxing moments in the fresh air. They are our relaxation oases, where we have a classic breakfast with coffee and the newspaper in hand, or in the evening a romantic Candle-light dinner for two can enjoy. That is why it is so important to make the balcony really cozy. Especially when the area is small, you notice it immediately, if the setting is not right. A small balcony can quickly overload, eg when the balcony furniture is too big or too much. A rule of thumb is to leave at least a third of the area free. This makes the balcony visually wider and offers enough room for movement. The most important point when setting up the small balcony is, of course, your own taste and personal preferences. In addition, one should also consider and address its specific needs.
The furnishing style? Clearly, also a significant aspect of the Balcony design . It would be ideal if you already know in advance whether your balcony should look rather minimalist, oriental or rather Mediterranean. If you have already clarified this question, then it is much easier to get the right balcony furniture and living accessories.

Rattan also looks great on the balcony. One should look at which impregnation would be applied. Because only with polyrattan do the furniture need no additional weather protection.
