Your balcony lets you experience outdoor living without having to leave the comforts of home or perform the maintenance that comes with having a lawn. When you live in a condominium, you may not always have the most balcony space available to you though. While the inside of your condominium is decorated and full of your personal touches, the outdoor space is often left bare or may be occupied by a few chairs. These tips can help transform your balcony into a vibrant and cozy outdoor hangout.
- Furniture: The size of your balcony really has an effect on your choice of furniture. If you have some space to work with, a cushioned bench or outdoor couch are great choices to maximize the comfort level. Adding tables increases the functionality of the area, and side tables or one main table work just as well. If your balcony doesn’t have much in the way of extra room, try getting some fun, bright coloured folding furniture to hang on the walls. It will be accessible when you need it and serve as decoration when you put it away.
- Flooring: If the concrete or brick used to build your balcony doesn’t appeal to you, there are a few different ways you can liven up the floor. For a natural look, consider some artificial grass. It will help to add some greenery to the area and provide some insulation for your feet against the cold stone. If you prefer a more tropical style, bamboo mats are great and often inexpensive ways to spruce up your balcony. The most fun and customizable way to bring life to the floor is by using rugs. Available in a wide variety of patterns, colours, and piles, there is sure to be something to perfect your space.
- Accessories: This is where you can really make the space your own. Adding small touches that reflect your personality help to make your balcony feel like an extension of your home. Fun cushions, string lights, fountains, rock gardens, candles, outdoor lamps, interesting sculptures and décor pieces, and maybe some decorative plant pots all help bring life to your balcony and turn it into a comfortable and inviting place to spend time for both you and your guests.
- Plants: You can use your balcony to grow your own vegetable garden and save some money at the grocery store. If decorative plants are more your style, install a trellis for vines, or let them grow over your railing. Invest in some rail planters and beautiful flowers to add colour and vibrancy to your outdoor oasis. Even a small variety of tree would look great on a balcony. Whichever you choose, greenery is always a good option.
