The balcony is just as important as any other room in your house or apartment so, with a little imagination, you can turn it into something spectacular, no matter what size you have to work with. Here are a few ideas:
1. Convert the balcony into a garden
It’s very likely you are dreaming about that green garden where you can just relax in the sun. Well, the balcony can turn into such a place if you decorate it with potted (and climbing) plants and you pay attention to the furniture you purchase. You can opt for wooden tables and chairs and add colorful pillows, for both appearance and comfort purposes. If the space allows it, you can complete the design with a rocking chair or a small sofa. Add some interesting lighting and your oasis of tranquility is ready.
2. Convert the balcony into a storage place
Even a small balcony can be saving solution for storing items that you rarely use or that you do not bear to say goodbye to. Some rectangular boxes can hold many things and, at the same time, they can serve very well as a sofa; you just have to place on top of them than some padded cushions. And what’s a sofa without a corresponding coffee table? You can just embed a counter-top into one of the walls. This will serve as a table when it’s supposed to, without getting in your way in the remaining time.
3. Convert your balcony into an office
If the space allows it, you can transform the balcony into an extra room. Obviously, you first need to ensure that the balcony is properly insulated, and it can be equipped with lighting and heating. Only then, depending on your needs, you can move on to decorating it. Choose minimalist furniture, mount some shelves and don’t forget to surround yourself with flowers.
