When not in use, they take up very little space, so you can use the balcony in the time when you do not need the balcony furniture, otherwise. You can change the furniture for the balcony e.g. hang it on a hook, which you hit in the wall beforehand, and stow it in a convenient corner.

Balcony furniture of a special kind: balcony bench from the ground
Who possesses a small balcony must be ultimately only inventive. Good that there are resourceful furniture designers who apparently had to do with a small balcony. The idea behind it is as simple as it is ingenious: The seat for the balcony is simply integrated into the floor, so that you can literally bring it out when you need it. Otherwise, the beautiful floor serves as a normal floor space and can be used. Only downside: the seat could be soiled by running around on it. So either always kick your feet off before you enter the balcony, or hold a rag. And if you can not imagine anything under this idea so far, we provide in this video the vivid example of how balcony furniture can look from the floor.

The size of your balcony leads to further decisions. It's not just about the right material - which incidentally should fit into the overall ambience - but also the possible size of the furniture that you can put on the balcony. Basically everybody wants to be able to sit at least on the balcony and the balcony is still so small.

With a balcony chair you have different possibilities. First, you should be aware of the number of possible chairs. Afterwards, you can decide whether to take large, heavy chairs that you store permanently on the balcony, or rather smaller variants in the form of folding chairs, which you can certainly use in your home.

A balcony table not only increases the comfort, but also the charm that a balcony can spray. Breakfast for two outdoors in the sunshine awakens the spirits and is relaxing at the same time. The given space, however, determines the size again: Should it rather be a small round table, which resembles those in Parisian cafes, or find a massive dining table, in which several people could dine at the same time?

While a small balcony table can be stowed, the large table is a permanent purchase for the outside area. Of course, the tabletop does not have to be round. Sometimes square variations are even better, because they better fit the cut of the balcony. In addition, if the balcony table is not mobile, you can also screw the table to the wall - if possible - and use the folding mechanism. In this way you can save space and only have to open the table when you really need it.
