1. Hashtag Home Drayton Patio 5 Piece Bistro Set

Sure, having two chaise loungers would be nice, but when they’re not in use, they’re majorly in the way. These chairs and nesting ottomans are just as comfortable for kicking your feet up, but they slide under the table for easy storage. Plus, the entire set is made from weather- and rust-resistant metal, so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of lugging it all inside when it rains.

2. Freeport Park Gretchen 10' Cantilever Umbrella

Did you get your first sunburn of the season while “working” from the balcony? Same and we wish we’d invested in one of these umbrellas. The cantilever design is ideal for small spaces because the stand stays out of the way, rather than becoming the focal point.

3. Ebern Designs Cropsey Wicker/Rattan Balcony Table

OK, this idea is pretty genius. Rather than letting a stand-alone table take up precious outdoor space, just secure this wicker and rattan one to your balcony railing. Oh, and did we mention it folds down easily when not in use?
