Those who have houses with a balcony area can feel lucky because this area can be used in various ways. They can also make the house look bigger as the balcony is the extension of its, it is vital to take care of the balcony not only in the summer period but in winter time too. There are some tips that are going to make the balcony look even more beautiful.
The first start you need to do is covering the perimeter of your balcony whether you have an iron railing or a concrete wall. In many store gardens, you will find a lot of financial shutters on a roller shutter that you can mount on your balcony rails by yourself using wire or tapes. If you want to put something else on your rails, more natural, you can choose bamboo cans or even more natural effect fencing of fine twigs. So you will camouflage the iron or cement that does not help at all to create a nice natural space.
Do something similar on the floor of your balcony. Whatever is the material, tile or mosaic,it’s good to cover it, in both cases for a more natural result. Wood is definitely a material that will transform your balcony. Take wooden square tiles that snap close together creating a durable floor. You can of course find more economical wooden square tiles made with imitation wood. Since the concrete tiles are only available in certain dimensions, you can fill the space and if a spot is left empty cover it with pebbles that can be picked from the beach.
If you want to paint your balcony you can paint the tiles in a bright color giving a great summer effect. To properly combine it place pillows on chairs and pots in a close tint and break the monotony with colored flowers in the pots.
In order to make your balcony look like your garden, you should put lawn on the floor. You can also buy a fake lawn carpet with a few money. You canbuy it in a roll and cut it according to the dimensions of your balcony. You can clean it like a carpet or even sweep it with a vacuum cleaner. Position it from side to side without leaving any place empty or cover the uncovered places with gaps with pebbles. A bamboo armchair and a pillow will complete the decoration of your balcony. Place perimeter plants higher than your armchair to feel like you are in your own garden.
Paint the walls on the terrace or on your balcony naturally by placing climbing plants. Screw wooden panels on the wall especially for climbing plants, choose plants that have flowers throughout the spring and summer and plant them at the points just below the panels. As they grow up your wall will transform into a vertical garden. If your balcony is small, select the left and right sides of the balcony to avoid losing the width of the balcony as your plants grow.
Another alternative is instead of putting climbing plants, you can hang on the potted panels. Buy pots with hooks so you can hang them in whatever layout you like. If the space is limited, hang the pots from 1 meter upwards and just below a large cushion and two smaller cushions to rest. The panel will serve as a back to the sofa you will make. Make sure the pots have a built-in saucer to keep the water draining from them when you water them.
Who said carpets are winter accessories for the house only? There are carpets, from materials such as plastic which are used equally as carpets in the balcony. Put a carpet on your balcony to give color and extend the interior decoration. See the balcony as one more room in the house.
There are small sofas ideal for small balconies. You can either buy one or you can make a sofa by yourself. A sofa made of panels is the ultimate trend not only for the house and you can place it everywhere in the house too. You can take some panels from a store, put them in the order you wish, place a lot of pillows above them and you will have a big and comfortable sofa. You can also use the panel in order to make a nice confortable table. Panels in general are used in order to make a lot of types of modern classic design .
There are a lot of tips that can be used in the decoration of your balcony. You just have to keep in mind that the balcony, is out of the house, and also part of the house and needs to be taken care of equally. You just have to use your imagination, so as you have a space that is confortable and peaceful too.
