You probably haven't noticed that all those plants you bought at the start of summer are looking a bit lacklustre, the patio furniture that's spent all year outside is falling apart and the festoon lights you strung up to add some ambience are drooping somewhere around eye level. Time for an end of summer spruce up? We think so.

5. Get a Parisian-style vibe with Ikea patio furniture

Love the traditional, romantic feel of the design of the Lacko set , we reckon it could transform a dreary balcony into some Parisian-esque veranda, think pots of lavender, french press on the table, croissants piled up on a tray – just dream with us here people. Plus, as well as making you feel like you are on the set of Amélie, it's great for small spaces as the chairs are stackable, so you can add more if you need to.

6. Go for a modular set up 

The Kungsholmen range of Ikea patio furniture is perfect for small or larger spaces as it's modular so you can just keep adding and adding. For a small balcony you could just pop two of the chairs together like you can see here to create a small, cozy, outdoor sofa.

7. Add some storage to your balcony 

Outdoor shelving is a genius invention. It's perfect if you don't have loads of floor space on your balcony but want to cram in plenty of greenery. Pop a shelving unit against a wall and fill it with potted plants to create a kind of vertical garden. It's perfect for growing herbs too.
