The rapid wave of urbanization has converted our cities into nothing more than a concrete jungle and an urban lifestyle is pretty much starved of greenery and natural beauty. We fail to realize this but a ‘balcony’ is the only place that connects our box-like apartments to the beauty of the outside world. Sitting in your balcony, you can get the breath of fresh air while having the feel of being inside your own home. You try several home decor ideas to make your living room, bedroom and other parts of your house look better. But when was the last time you thought of a balcony décor?
Given below are a few tips to help you spruce up your balcony:
Make Wise Use of Space- Since a balcony is a very small part of the house, space utilization holds utmost importance for its decor. You need to decide the purpose of the decor- whether you want to set up a garden out there or a place for relaxing. Also, the decor you are planning should be in proportion to the size of your room. Do not place too many stuff in the balcony.
Place the Right Furniture- The choice of furniture also depends on how you intend to use the space. If it’s for relaxing, a pair of armchairs would be perfect. But if you have a bigger balcony and want to use it for night-time entertainment with friends, a sturdy set of small dining furniture would be a good idea.
Be Sure about its Strength- A balcony might not have a strong base like the other rooms. Make sure that you use light-weight furniture. Also place it in a manner that leaves enough space for you to manoeuvre.
Add a Touch of Nature- A balcony would be incomplete without a little touch of greenery. Depending on the size of your balcony, you can place plant pots on either side of it. Choose plants that stay blooming throughout the year as you wouldn’t like the plants in your balcony to be dead and destroy the whole beauty of it.
Give it a Personal Touch- A decorative screening is all you need to add a personal touch to your balcony. If you are a music lover, an attractive picture of your favorite musical instrument or a musical band would be good for the backdrop. Art lovers can adorn the balcony with different works of art.
Like any other part of your home, your balcony should also attract the attention of the guests. It is the best place to relax after a tiring day, so jazz it up with a creative decor!
