Small ar­eas such as bal­conies are no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult to work with. When you’re tight on space, think prac­ti­cal and make sure each piece you in­cor­po­rate works ex­tra hard. ‘Pick some­thing which has a dual pur­pose,’ says Block & chisel owner Lynn Mcadam. ‘Two stools to­gether can dou­ble up as ex­tra seat­ing, footrests or even a cof­fee ta­ble.’  blockand­chisel.co.za

Tiny spa­ces can feel re­strict­ing, and the nat­u­ral so­lu­tion is to play it safe. how­ever, bold, in­ter­est­ing de­sign pieces bring char­ac­ter and life to city apart­ment bal­conies and small nooks in the gar­den.
