Take care of plant managementThe first rule of thumb when you have a small balcony is of course to make the most of every square inch. Since you have few ... garden vertically. Of course, not all plants are cultivable this way. But a green wall allows you to save space while limiting the small annoyances frequent when gardening: too full of water, harmful ... To garden vertically, you can turn to supports sold commercially or create your own wall of greenery from a wooden pallet, a diverted gutter or plastic bottles. Another option, you turn to fences or palisades. If they are very practical to protect from vis-à-vis, they also prove to be great supports for climbing plants! However, be careful not to abuse it and cover it with plants so as not to give the feeling of a partitioned space. Finally, think of the planters to hang on the railing to accommodate greenery, giving the illusion of extending the space of your balcony.

Look after the decorationDo not think that, because your surface is limited, you will have to limit yourself on the decoration side. On the contrary, you will have to take even more care. If you really run out of space, do not give up the dining area but opt for a shelf that hangs from the railing, framed by two folding chairs that you will take out only if necessary. Always with the idea of investing height and injecting style into your balcony, why not have an arch? This strong decorative element will not take up any space and you can hang plants on it. Also play on recuperation for example by using wine boxes as planters or by turning a ladder to create a vertical garden. As for your interior, color can prove to be a precious ally to enlarge your small balcony! For example, to camouflage your ugly concrete floor, prefer grating to the outdoor carpet or synthetic grass. You can then paint them in a light and bright color. Less DIY enthusiasts can also opt for a special concrete color. Again, let yourself be tempted by a rather light shade without being too messy. If you really want to bring bright and invigorating color, like pink, blue or red, do it sparingly, on small decorative objects only: a candle holder, a mini cushion placed on a chair, a pot holder , a hanging lantern ... The contrast obtained will then promote the illusion of a larger space.
