1. Clean It Up
2. Go Green
If you live in an apartment and your balcony is essentially your yard, then don’t be afraid to add some green scenery with plants. To permanently transform your balcony, choose perennials to get the same look year after year and plant them in railing planters. You can also change the scenery by having a few pots or planters for annuals that you switch throughout the year. You don’t have to overload your balcony with a forest of greens, but choose a few strategic places to put some stylish pots and have fun.

3. Replace Railings
If you are allowed to make such changes, swap worn out railings for a new look. Pickets with a colorful design can be a particularly welcoming sight in the wintertime when your colorful view is limited. There are many different kinds to choose from, so choose a picket style that suits you and paint it whatever color you please.
4. Add Lights
You don’t need much, but a little bit of lighting can go a long way on a balcony. Take some light strands and wrap them along the railing, or use tea lights, lanterns, and other small lights on or around your furniture to create just the right mood. For safety reasons, avoid using real candles.
5. Fix Something
can choose one thing each year, each month, each week, or each day. As you fix up your balcony, you may find yourself wanting to spend more time on it. Appeal to Yourself If you’ve been avoiding your balcony like the plague, refreshing it using these tips could make it appealing again. Freshen up your balcony to your personal tastes, and you may find yourself entertaining and lounging on it more than ever.

Love the tips Sherry….I so love all of the balconies in the cities you mentioned and I was amazed at the gorgeous balconies in France (mainly Paris)…I have an upper porch, I guess I can now call it my balcony if I change out the railing to a gorgeous iron railing like the inspiration pics. Have a great weekend!
Those are all such beautiful balconies. I don't have one on my house but I do have a front porch so maybe that counts. You shared some great ideas to make it pretty.
These are such great tips, Sherry. The balconies in Charleston were so pretty when we were there in the Fall. I can only imagine how beautiful they are now. Your inspiration pics are lovely.
