Sunny weather is here! And while we’re steering clear of the beach and the park until it’s safe to be around large groups of people, you better believe we’re going to be soaking up all the sun we can get from home. Which means taking advantage of our teeny tiny balcony, and turning it into a place we’d be happy to spend a lazy afternoon. Here, 10 pieces of small balcony furniture that’ll totally transform your outdoor space, no matter what size it is. Psst, you can totally put these items on a patio or porch too.

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 Anna 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?

4. Christopher Knight Home Teardrop Wicker Chair

5. Mercury Row Collingswood 3 Piece Seating Group with Cushions

Looking to complete your modern aesthetic, even from the exterior? This weather-resistant wicker set should do the trick. The chic chairs will make you feel like you’re sitting poolside at a fancy resort and with ultra-comfortable foam-filled cushions, you’ll never want to get up. Just keep in mind that the brand recommends storing all three pieces inside when they’re not in use, to keep them looking good as new. High maintenance, but worth it.

7. Armen Living Portals Natural Teak Wood Outdoor Sofa

Room for two people to sit, with a little ledge to rest a candle or your cocktail (or both). What more could you need? This solid wood frame will stand the test of time, becoming the mainstay of your outdoor space.

8. Modway Endeavor Wicker Outdoor Coffee Table

Technically, this coffee table is part of a larger set. But we love the idea of placing it on top of an outdoor rug, and using a few cushions for seating around it. Boho chic outdoor dinner, coming right up.

9. Closed Mondays Hanging Planter

Plants instantly pull your decor together, but they can take up a lot of room. That’s why we’re fans of this hanging planter. Secure it to the ceiling (provided part of your balcony has one) or to the wall and your plant baby will have a totally ‘gram-worthy new home.

10. Christopher Knight Home Sedona Mid Century Outdoor Chairs

Who needs bulky side tables when you have these chairs? They have ample space on either side of the cushions to hold your beer or your book. If you’d rather sit side-by-side, just push them together to create a makeshift loveseat.
