Imagine tossing and turning in your bedroom or living room sofa and daydreaming about the beautiful outdoor view, with a gentle breeze caressing your skin.
This daydream can become a reality if your home comes with a balcony; there’s no need to sweat it out indoors all the time.
Allow yourself to enjoy your outdoor space by creating a seamless blend between your indoors and outdoors. It doesn’t matter the size of balcony you have (whether a generously sized deck or a tiny patio), it is possible to spruce it up to add lustre to your home, creating the intimacy and comfort you desire. Are you lacking inspiration for your balcony? We’ve got some ideas for you.
A touch of glass
There are few things more relaxing than taking a break on your balcony, enjoying the outside view, and watching the rest of the world go by, with your favourite drink by your side. If you love to enjoy your exterior view, consider using infinity glass and balustrades to help bring the outside view in; not only will your balcony space be enhanced, but it will also help you make the most of the view.
Plants are pretty much one of nature’s best gifts as far as home decor is concerned, and one plant can be enough to change your balcony’s ambience. From vines to potted plants in planters, you can choose from different varieties, depending on what meets your fancy. If space is an issue, stick with plants that will grow vertically.
Plants also come with added health benefits, as they exchange your carbon dioxide with oxygen; it’s a win-win situation.
It’s hard to imagine a relaxing balcony space without the right furniture. When shopping for furniture for your balcony, comfort and relaxation are the most important things to consider. A few items that will add a nice touch to your balcony if you have the space for it include:
- Rocking chairs
- Day beds
- Swing chairs
- A single sofa
- A hammock
You can also use something as simple as wooden crates for your furniture; just cover them with cushions, and you’re good to go. Let your outdoor furniture complement the ones indoors to help create a seamless transition.
Lighting up your balcony should be able to serve two primary purposes:
- Making it possible to spend beautiful nights in your outdoor space – You don’t need anything too bright; something warm-toned and stylish should do the trick. You can even opt for some candles to create a romantic touch.
- Serving as a form of security – You can use an electric lantern. The right number will depend on the space you have.
Bear in mind that the lighting shouldn’t be too harsh.
The right flooring choice may depend on where the balcony is located. For example, if it’s right after your kitchen, tiles may be the way to go. But if it connects to a wooden floor area, then a deck is appropriate. No matter the flooring you already have, you can always cover its centre space with a beautiful rug.
You can also add some shade if you expect to spend a lot of time on your balcony.
