The minimalist option will work really well if you’re balcony is too small. This is because the minimalism is about making use of the space with only the things you really need. It can be budget-friendly, but this really depends on your taste too! Pick chairs and a coffee table you like and place them outside. Add few decorations to give more charm to the space, such as plants and pillows.
