    Depending on the purpose of your patio or balcony, delegates how you will decorate it. A small table and a couple of chairs turns your space into an outside dining or general purpose seating area.

This is your space so create whatever atmosphere you want, but keep in mind apartment policies about hanging and painting.

    Apartments in Gainesville with Patios and Balconies: Choosing Patio vs. Balcony

    You may be wondering, is there a difference between a patio and a balcony. If so, what are those differences? A patio is a roofless area adjoined to the house and usually employed for entertainment and dining purposes. A balcony is a small platform that protrudes from a wall of an upper apartment floor and is usually enclosed by a railing. It must be clarified that unlike the patio, balcony is not at the street level. It is notable that either style of space can be manipulated into whatever you want that space to be: garden, dining area, or book nook, the choice is yours!
