Balcony decorating ideas with natural stone
As small as it may seem, you can turn your balcony into a relaxed and open space: it is essential to define its purpose, according to your needs and desires. You can transfom the balcony into a dining area, a work desk or a small but colorful rich garden, able to inspire relaxation. And focus on the important aspects of this decoration project: the use of quality materials, while maintaining the interior design line.
First of all, it would be ideal to avoid the use of balcony as a storage space: you can turn it into a quiet corner, to be enjoyed during sunny days. You have many options for decoration elements: you can grow flowers in flower boxes hanging inside the terrace (if you choose a vertical garden, you will save space), you can add simple furniture pieces, or even a few colorful cushions for cheering up the place, or you can work on some DIY projects, for adding a personal touch to your balcony. Of course, if you can create a concept/theme that will serve as a starting point for the decoration project of this space, it's all the better!
You can use natural stone successfully for shaping a space praised by your visiting friends and you will realize that slowly it will turn into the favorite place of your apartment.
Here's an example of a stylish decoration project for a tiny balcony from a London apartment, project conceived by Celia James, interior designer.
Eclectic Patio by London Interior Designers & Decorators Celia James
Keep in mind that exterior wall is a bit taller, for allow the feeling of a cozier space from the beginning. The furniture is perfectly integrated into this concept of English garden, with simple, curved lines for a touch of elegance. The flooring and cladded wall will complete the clean and spacious atmosphere and an essential detail comes from the exterior flowers, thus avoiding cluttering.

Interior Wall Cladded with Fileti Tumbled Thassos Marble
Fileti Tumbled Thassos Marble from the image above is also recommended for the exterior, thus being also an option for balcony wall cladding. The white color creates the feeling of an open, bright space and the marble texture brings always a luxury touch.
For flooring, you can use Classic Travertine for exterior paving with brushed and chiseled edges (vintage look) for maintaining the fairytale look from the London decoration project. The travertine tile for the exterior is thicker (3 cm), for withstanding successfully the freeze/thaw cycles, rain or snow, if your balcony is open. Besides, this tile is also available in smaller size (15 x 30.5 cm) so that you can also take advantage of the narrower spaces.
Important: if you have a closed balcony, you can also use travertine with 1.2 cm thickness and for this we recommend Latte Brushed & Chiseled Travertine French Pattern Set 1.2 cm thickness, a compact material, durable in outdoor conditions.
