It is all about getting creative and exploring new ideas while decorating your space. You can showcase your green thumb by placing a variety of plants at the corners of the balcony area.

You owe it to yourself and your friends to make it a place for enjoying your evenings. The balcony has the potential for becoming the most attractive place at your home. That doesn’t mean that you put an old lawn chair and be satisfied.
Nobody like an empty balcony. Whether we accept it or not, balconies make a part of our home and have a lot of design potential. Empty balconies can leave the home feeling unfinished. Our balcony was lying unused for over two years after we moved into the house. We didn’t care much for decorating it and used it either for hoarding broken furniture or as a space for things we no longer used at home. This year, we finally started sitting outside during evening tea and realised that it was the best place to relax when a cool breeze was present. After a few days of sitting regularly in the area, we decided to give it a makeover. It turned out to be a great decision.
I went to the market which is famous for it’s rustic outdoor furniture which is quite affordable and chose a few décor pieces which I felt would look great in the balcony. There was an old sofa lying at home which seemed like a good fit and we got the covers changed. There are a plethora of websites which sell animal figurines and pots perfect for any outdoor place, one of which was quite affordable. After collecting a variety of pendant lamps, we took to decorating the place. We started with putting a variety of plants in the corners. Creepers on the railings look great when fully grown. A café table along with four cane chairs went nicely with the sofa on the side. We felt a rustic looking mirror would be a nice touch. After hanging the lanterns and the pendant lamps in all corners, we were pretty much done. The place looked unrecognizable from what it was a week ago.
Earlier, I wouldn’t care to give the balcony a second look when I crossed it but now, I feel like it’s my favorite place to relax and unwind. A little bit of effort can sometimes lead to a very satisfying result even when we don’t expect it. There are so many things we can use it for now. We can use it as a dining area when the weather is nice. It would also serve as a great place for a hangout with friends.
You owe it to yourself and your friends to make it a place for enjoying your evenings. The balcony has the potential for becoming the most attractive place at your home. That doesn’t mean that you put an old lawn chair and be satisfied. Get creative and you’ll see the results.
