Brighten up Your Balcony

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Outdoor Living

So many apartments, studios, and even homes today come with small balconies. A balcony is a great added feature of your home, yet so many people do not give their balcony the same attention they give the indoors. Just because your balcony is small, do not let it stop you from adding your personal touch to it. Here are five ways to spruce up your tiny balcony:
 
Plants
Depending on where you live, your balcony may be your yard. Take advantage of the plot of land you have outdoors by adding a planter and even growing a garden. You can put decorative plants around to give a lively look to your balcony. Tall bamboo can be easily produced and is low maintenance. If your lease allows you, hang a planter with flowers from your balcony. If your balcony cannot get rainy access, remember to water your plants frequently or go with faux plants.
 
Lights
You have a couple different ways to add lighting to your balcony. Candles are fabulous to add and create an outdoor ambiance with their natural, low light emittance. You can also consider using fake candles or build a fake do-it-yourself firepit with Christmas lights wrapped around the logs. Respectively, Christmas lights do not have to be seasonal! Adding white Christmas lights is a great way to turn your balcony into a classy retreat. Outdoor paper lantern lights are also a great way to add character to your outdoor space.
 
Floor Panels
Composite decking board is an easy floor you can install right over your existing balcony. Most renters will not allow you to install glue down turf or other flooring options, but with a floating composite decking floor, you can add an incredible look to your space. There are so many different designs of composite deck flooring to choose from, allowing you to really customize your space. This can make a huge difference to the aesthetic look of your balcony.
 
Curtains
Curtains do not only belong indoors! Adding curtains to your balcony can give you some privacy. You can also use decorative blinds on the outside of your windows to add to your balcony design. If your balcony has a railing, consider installing decorative blinds. Curtains can do wonders for giving your balcony a sophisticated, exclusive feel.
 
Seating
With all this new-found beauty added to your balcony, you are going to want to be outside more. Adding a decorative bench, comfortable seating or whickered chairs can bring quality time outdoors. Outside cushions can make your outdoor oasis more cozy and welcoming. Seats with storage underneath are perfect multifunctioning tools and you can use them to amplify the space you are given.
 
Your balcony should be facilitated as part of your home space. Investing your balcony is a great way to get you to use your outdoor space. Make your balcony welcoming and a place to relax at home with these fun tips. You will be surprised how often you find yourself using your balcony after you finish it.
