Install some bird feeders

Install various types of bird feeders and keep them filled year-round to attract a wide variety of birds. Some birds prefer suet feeders, so those can also be a great addition to your balcony.

Buy some nice balcony furniture 

You may not have enough space for a full table set and chairs but something like an outdoor chaise and a side table will offer a wonderful place to relax. If outdoor furniture just isn't in the budget, there are many DIY projects you can find online to make it yourself from recycled materials.

Light up

Add some decorative lighting in the form of paper lanterns or outdoor sconces. Candles also add to the atmosphere and can help deter bothersome insects.

Reserve a area for herbs

Reserve a special area for edibles such as herbs and container vegetables. There are many herbs like basil, chives and cilantro that do very well in small pots. Tomatoes and peppers are also great to grow in containers.

Add a splash of color
