There’s no better place than a balcony to bring the outside into your apartment. Most European flats are small, and the balconies are even smaller, but it doesn’t have to feel claustrophobic. In fact, it can be very cozy indeed if you put some time into redecorating it properly.

Well thought-out decorating ideas can turn a balcony into an urban oasis full of greenery, or it can turn to be your favorite reading nook, at least for the summer. And of course, great balcony ideas can make your gallery the most popular hangout place for you and your crew!

We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of the coziest balconies we could find to give you all the inspiration you need to refine your home decor. Even I was inspired by these small balcony ideas to turn mine into something unusual after seeing these pics! Does your balcony already look this awesome? Then don’t hesitate to add your image to the list! I’ll be sure to add my own once...once I'm finished with the home decorating it, that is.

I love the wood floor idea. I live in Europe though and don't see many apartments (the none rich ones I mean) with wood floors. Most balconies in the cement style high rises have cement floors or tile or something. I wonder if you could lay wood floors down that is removable as you don't own the apartment...? I would love to do that for mine
