Apartment Balconies are the best place to get some sun, fresh air and connect with nature. But they are often neglected in our houses and we end up using them as a storage space or even a dump yard! Imagine reclaiming that extra 50 to 60sqft of expensive urban real estate and putting it to use.
Here are the basic elements you will need to create that perfect space!
Right Plants: It is very important to pick the right plants, as weather plays an important role. Everyone has a different taste for plants, some like Succulents, some like more flowery plants and some may like seasonal plants. If you have limited balcony space, use a vertical display as shown in the images below. Or hang up planters on your railing or from the wall. Keep in mind the amount of sunlight that your balcony receives. If you get ample sunlight, load it up with flowery plants which will also colour up your balcony. If there is no direct sunlight, look for greens that thrive in diffused lighting conditions. Consider misting your plants regularly, especially during extreme summers, so that they do not lose moisture
Seating – With a beautiful balcony, you would love to spend time there and enjoy the breeze and your favourite cup of coffee. Two most important things to keep in mind while Picking balcony seating are for it to be
1.Weather-Resistant– Since most wood can be damaged by continuous exposure to sun and rain, waterproof your furniture whenever it starts to wear off.
2. Easy to move– Keep the furniture easy to move so the balcony can be cleaned thoroughly when needed. You can opt-in for space-saving furniture which can fold up when not in use or versatile furniture which can be used back inside the home when not in use outside.
Decor: Since balcony spaces are usually small, use up your wall space for decor. Add decorative mirrors or wall art. You can also use decorative stands to store or display souvenirs. To add glamour to your balcony when the sun goes down, wrap some string lights around the railing. Line up some large candles to create a cosy and warm atmosphere. Candles are best and safe when kept inside a candle holder or opt-in for candles in a jar.
