If you have little space in open plan living, it is important to zone the space and define the separate areas. This can be achieved through a rug under the dining table or a sideboard behind a sofa.

Think about how the furnishings look from indoors…If another room has big views of the balcony, you want to enhance them rather than block them. Here, an artful statement chair by Patricia Urquiola adds a sculptural touch, while low tables keep the main view open.

Branch out with a balconyIf you have a balcony, as quite a few new-build apartments do, turn it into an extension of your living space by adding an outdoor rug, small-scale furniture and potted plants.“Keep the flow from inside to outside by using colours and textures that coordinate with the interior spaces to create a cohesive look and feeling of continuity,” says Painter. “Bringing a few potted plants inside will also make the balcony feel like an extension of your inside space, therefore making it appear more generous.”Alexeeva suggests installing low-level closed storage along the balcony wall. “It can function as a seating area and give you valuable storage solution,” she says.
