Plants are always a good idea
Add plants. They will always bring a fresh air to every environment. And spring and summer flowers are really appealing, not only green and charged with vitality, but also colorful and, most likely, perfumed. Moreover, you don’t need to waste floor space for them; you can use vertical space to hang them, walls and the guard rail.
You could create a simple sitting bench that can also provide the role of a table. You can use pillows and coverings to make it more comfortable for reading or just enjoying your morning coffee, a lemonade in the afternoon, and, why not, a glass of wine in the evening. Depending on the length or width of you balcony, you could set it so that it will allow you to save a segment for turning it into a table.
