5 Renter-Friendly Ways to Make over Your Balcony This Fall

Author: Lauren Ross


It’s like we blink and then summer’s officially over. I love summer, though, I love the fall season just a little bit more. With the cool air finally rolling in, now is the perfect time to make use of your balcony and give it a fall makeover. Here are some tips for an incredible fall feel.

Mums the Word

Mums (Chrysanthemums) are a relatively inexpensive fall flower that instantly add a pop of color to any outdoor living area. They come in numerous brilliant hues, including purple, red, orange, yellow and white. Be sure to add your favorite color combination in an aluminum or whiskey-barrel pot for a true fall-inspired look.

Gourd-geous Table Lanters

Your patio or balcony table should also get some fall love. Simply fill a lantern with miniature pumpkins, gourds and pine cones for a radiant seasonal table centerpiece.

Cozy and Comfy Outdoor Seating

Adding a rustic-style blanket and pillow top to your outdoor seating area can really enhance the coziness of your balcony. Fall favorites include burlap and plaid with fun phrases, such as “Happy Fall Y’all!” and “Fall Greetings”.

Personalize with a Monogrammed Wreath

Pretty up your apartment balcony/patio doors with a beautiful wreath! Wreathes that display fall foliage, berries, branches, apples or seasonal flowers are definitely a must for the season.

Create a Color Scheme

The classic colors (red, orange and yellow) are a great scheme for your fall décor. If you prefer softer colors, you may want to consider decorating with a unique shade of blue, gray, white and gold. This color scheme is super chic but still embodies all the wonderful things about fall.
