Sleek and minimalist, modern balconies keep the focus on the view. With their clean lines, natural materials and smart use of space, it’s almost as if they prompt you to go outside and savor the fresh air. But how do you achieve this look on your own? Essentially, it’s all about the materials you choose and not overburdening the space with more than it can handle. To get started, allow the following modern balcony ideas and photos to inspire you.


Choose a Design that Flows

If you’re starting from scratch and building your own balcony, choose your design wisely! You’ll want something that complements the environment around it, whether you’re in a forest or a city. There are a few types of modern balcony railings you can choose from, including all-glass versions or those with metal slats and cable wiring. Both of these options have a low-profile aesthetic that’ll maximize your view.


It’s also wise to match your railing design, materials and finishes with your home’s surroundings. Dark metals and earthy woods look gorgeous in wooded or leafy suburban areas. On the other hand, if you’ve got a view of the ocean or a lake, you might opt for a glass railing, with a simple metal or wood border around it. That way, the blue of the water will show through uninterrupted.


Use Furniture and Decor with Purpose

To achieve a modern aesthetic, it’s best to keep decor to a minimum. That way, you’ll have an uncluttered, restful spot to kick back in. One of the best ways to add character to the space is with pots and planters full of flowers and greenery. Go for those with simple square, rectangular or round designs.


When it comes to choosing modern balcony furniture, you have a number of options. To take things in a playful, midcentury direction, opt for colorful Acapulco chairs. If lounging in maximum comfort is important to you, opt for a basic chair or loveseat with straight lines and thick cushions. You could even set out one or two chaise lounge chairs if you plan on using your balcony for sunbathing.


Lighting is another consideration when planning out your outdoor escape. Recessed lights won’t draw attention to themselves, and work great if you’ve got a ceiling overhead. Alternatively, string lights or even a couple of large hanging lanterns can add welcome ambiance to an otherwise plain balcony.


What Will You Use the Balcony For?

Most balconies are connected to a bedroom, though not all, particularly if you live in an apartment. While you sift through various modern balcony ideas, consider what exactly you want to use yours for, and fill it with furniture and decor accordingly. If yours is off a bedroom, you might want a couple of chairs and a small table to enjoy lazy breakfasts or a nightcap. Alternatively, for those balconies that shoot off of a living room, optimize the space for socializing with a larger dining table or a sofa and chair set.
