Spacious storage can be arranged by giving one of the walls under open shelves. It is easy to arrange books, flowers or other little things on them that could not be found in other parts of the apartment. Order will have to be maintained carefully so that the small space of the balcony does not seem cluttered.
To simplify cleaning, you can organize semi-open storage, that is, put all items in impenetrable baskets or boxes. So on the balcony there will always be visual cleanliness. By the way, shelves can be made not to the floor, leaving a little space to store bulky items, such as chairs, a small dryer or ironing board. For them, it is better to provide additional fasteners.

It is better to make a cabinet up to the ceiling so that useful centimeters do not disappear. If the width of the balcony does not fit standard, even small furniture sizes, you can make it to order. Consider all the nuances of architecture and try to create a form that maximizes the space against the wall. For example, if you have ledges or niches, store them as well. And if you make mirrored facades, the balcony will become visually larger.

5 In a chest of drawers
A closet may feel bulky or may not fit the windows, blocking out some of the light. If this is your case, take a closer look at the chest of drawers. The chest of drawers leaves part of the wall free, so the balcony looks more spacious, there is room for additional decor. It will take up space up to the windowsill. In such furniture there are fewer maneuvers for storage, but it looks visually lighter and will still help to unload cabinets in the apartment.
