Balcony chairs come in various materials and styles, made for various balcony designs. Chaise lounge balcony chairs recline to several positions and are often used on large balconies. For smaller balconies, a simple patio-style chair made of resin or wood can be used. Bistro sets often include folding chairs. Some balcony chairs are also stackable, making them convenient for storing when not in use.

Resin balcony armchairs come in styles for adults and children. Children's styles often are seen in bright colors, such as red or purple. Balcony chairs made of durable resin are generally resistant to the sun's ultraviolet rays. These styles are low maintenance and can easily be wiped down with a damp cloth. People prefer resin chairs for the balcony or patio because they are suitable for all weather conditions and are waterproof. Plastic resin chairs for the balcony also do not rust, fade, or chip as wood and metal chairs can.

Beanbag chairs are sometimes used for large balconies and for homes with young children. Beanbag balcony chairs are comfortable for children and teenagers, weatherproof, and easy to clean. These are typically made of durable vinyl material and may be found in various colors.


Foam block chairs have a streamlined appearance and are usually teamed with contemporary outdoor furniture. These are popular choices for the balcony due to the compact size of the chair. People also prefer foam block balcony chairs because they are relatively easy to clean and very comfortable. These styles of balcony chairs do not have a back or arms.

Rocking chairs are often used on balconies of all sizes. These chairs are typically made of wood, metal, or plastic resin. Rocker-gliders are balcony chairs that move as a rocking chair with a gliding-type mechanism.

Wicker patio and balcony chairs are often used as a set that includes two chairs and a table. Some wicker chairs are made with other material such as resin, and include soft padded cushions. These chairs are often used as part of modern balcony decor. Outdoor club chairs are often used on home balconies and many are made of wicker. These balcony chairs generally have a contemporary design and may be used for dining or lounging.

Those who own a mountain or rustic country home often use Adirondack chairs on the balcony. Cedar wood is commonly used for this style of home balcony chair. The Adirondack chair typically has a high slotted back and some are a folding design. Adirondack chairs may also be constructed of high quality plastic or resin.
