With the onset of spring, we want to spend more time outdoors, and if we don’t manage to get out of the city every day, then spending a pleasant evening or morning in a private balcony is a luxury available to almost everyone. In this article we will talk about how to turn a very small balcony with the warehouse of old things into a cozy and comfortable place to relax.
Organize a reading corner and privacy in the balcony
Even in the smallest balcony a cozy armchair or a comfortable chair may be placed on which you can always put soft pillows and a warm blanket. In this corner, surrounded by greenery, you will enjoy a cup of morning coffee or relaxing in the evening. Turn the balcony into a private space for relaxation and privacy.
Use natural materials in decoration
Balcony is a place between the house and the street that many people want to make close to nature as much as possible, for which cheap natural materials suit the best. Gazebo can be sheathed with clapboard, and the wall may be decorated with dried sedges. These materials do not require large expenditures, but will help to create the right atmosphere of a country house.
Use folding furniture
Very often the balcony is used for friendly or family gatherings, but placing lots of furniture in a small space is a very difficult task. Folding chairs that can be hung directly on the wall and removed, when necessary, and folding tables for terraces and balconies can be found in different finishes and price category.
Create a vertical garden
If you like houseplants, but there is not enough space to place them in the balcony, a trendy vertical garden may be a solution allowing to literally turn a wall into a flower bed or a bed. You can make tanks for vertical garden yourself or purchase ready-made ones.
Grow edible plants
In pallets on window sills and railings you can grow not only flowers and cacti, but also a variety of edible and useful plants, for example, various types of lettuce, parsley, dill and pepper chili. They will not look worse than decorative houseplants and will delight with “home” harvest.
Turn the balcony into a lounge area
In the balcony you can easily and inexpensively create a recreation area in the eastern style, with soft pillows on the floor. Pillows are easily removed and laid, for example, in case of bad weather they can accommodate many persons. This will definitely create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and will surely appeal to lovers of oriental tea ceremonies and hookahs.
Use bright textile
To refresh the appearance of even the most ordinary small balcony without repairs and costs just a few vivid strokes will do. The easiest way is to use textile decoration, for example, lay on the floor a colored floor covering and place colorful pillows and a blanket on the chairs.
Spring is the perfect time for repair and fresh ideas, do not be afraid to express your imagination, especially when it comes to seasonal cleaning and arrangement of balconies.
