So you do not have a large yard with a swimming pool and a she-shed. If you do have a balcony, though, a little maintenance can transform it into a cherished outdoor hangout. Before you accessorize your balcony, there are a few things to consider.For starters, the materials you choose for outdoor furniture are critical and can mean the difference between a soggy mess and a long-lasting investment. Aside from furnishings, there are a few more features that will make your balcony stand out. Plants are a terrific way to liven up a room. On a balcony garden, you can grow flowers like geraniums and begonias and hardy plants like bamboo and fresh herbs.
Seating for All
Why not include an eating and lounging area if you have the space? This balcony includes plenty of seats and an outdoor mat and pillows for a relaxing atmosphere.Do you have a limited amount of space? It is no problem. By thinking beyond the box, you can still tailor the square footage you do have. Using plants, stack them and make a vertical garden instead of scattering them around the floor. Hanging plants and nesting tables are also excellent space savers.
Balcony with a Twist
This balcony in the Bay Area is unique because of its vibrant, eclectic combination of styles. The warm color palette, established by the Lucite chairs, is reminiscent of the 1970s. However, the mat, flower, and chiminea give the room a Tropical feel. It is the ideal combination of eccentric, fashionable, and relaxing qualities.What is black, white, and obscenely stylish all over? An opulent City balcony. Not only is the glossy black and white tile floor stunning, but I also adore how the rest of the decor complements it.
It is no secret that a balcony is a great spot to show off your small garden, but I challenge you to get a little more imaginative than just putting your petunias in a planter. I have strung plants from the balcony railing in an artistic manner. Vertical gardening has never been cooler!You enjoy applying a new coat of paint to brighten up your indoor area, so why should your balcony be any different? The light green decorations on the balcony of my apartment are completely natural.
Privacy Screen Made of Solid Fabric
With a strong privacy screen, you can protect yourself from the wind, the sun, and curious eyes. On my balcony, I have a crimson one. I have a basic cloth thrown over the structure that can be secured to provide additional seclusion without breaking the bank.
I transformed my relatively narrow balcony into a Parisian-style fantasy. The IKEA alternating deck tiles resulted from a DIY effort I completed to transform a concrete floor into something more appealing. Popularly called friendship furniture, the vintage dining set was once a set of four that she shared with a friend. This idea works especially well on small balconies when there is not enough room for a bigger number of chairs.It does not hurt to add something a little more whimsical—like an egg-shaped chair—rather than keeping with a standard set of chairs. This chair takes up just the right amount of space while remaining unobtrusive. In the side, I have piled flowerpots, and the folding lantern above adds a lovely stylish look that ties all this together.
Pallet Sofa for the Garden
Some things have a lot of potentials. The newest thing to add to my balcony is a wood pallet sectional frame that I acquired on the side of the road. I realized I would need some padding to make this a comfortable seating option, so I went online and found cushions intended expressly for palettes—a wonderful match. With the addition of some thrifted cushions, the transformation is complete.
A Small City Jungle
Turn your balcony into a mini-urban forest to exercise your green thumb. Mine is adorned with lovely greenery and seasonal flowers. Flower boxes have been used to cover the railing. I have a little accent table and chair that is ideal for one person, with a city view. The huge umbrella provides just the right amount of shade to shield you from the sun's rays.
Adding A Little Texture
No, you do not have to stick to robust canvas and vinyl for your balcony. I add some sheepskin to the outside patio to offer more texture. Before a big storm, I make sure to bring the more delicate materials inside. Color, texture, and pattern are all things I try to play around with. My area is full of life and vitality, thanks to the primary color palette, patterned tiles, and decorative designs on the pillows.
On A Final Note!
No matter how small, a neglected balcony is a terrible sight on wonderful bright days and calm summer evenings. So, if yours is now serving as a cemetery for dead plants or damaged outdoor furniture, pay attention. Try these wonderful ideas for changing an ugly balcony into a pleasant and entertaining hotspot.
