- Furniture for the small balcony
On the limited external surface you can logically not place large garden furniture. If you prefer smaller pieces of furniture, such as a round table and folding chairs, a small bench or just a few stools are enough in most cases. All furniture must be made of either wood or plastic, iron fittings here and there are also desirable. These materials are weather resistant so the hot summer sun does not damage them. In rain and wind you can leave them outside on the balcony. Only the textile things such as seat covers or small carpets you have to bring to the dry during the storm. Suspended tables, half tables or side tables are other options that are also possible in the design of the small balcony.
