Complete Balcony Makeover for Home

Spacious balconies offer wide view of surroundings and the skies with a relaxing aesthetic. It offers ample amount of fresh air and sunlight where one can step out. The balcony space is often taken for granted while planning and executing interiors for houses and flat. We often fail to understand that this space can also be a useful area, just like any other facility inside a house. While many balconies remain unused, they can still be turned useful and practical with some makeover and hacks.

How to nail balcony makeover on a budget

Spruce up a boring balcony space with reasonably inexpensive tiles, a storage bench, plants, or a mini barbeque grill. We often focus on opulent living room decorations and neglect outdoor space, which can be turned into an alluring expanse within a low budget. Before starting to decorate balcony, make sure to measure the area and plan the furniture accordingly. Oversized furniture pieces can end up making the space all the more unusable. One of the best ways to make small balcony bigger is by adding glass doors, deck tiles, and rails for the balcony fence. Balcony railings are a graceful affluent in the traditional and contemporary architecture. Not only they create a visual harmony, it also creates a special view of the outdoor setting. These are a visual appreciation and elevate the space’s dimensions.

Decorating balcony with plants

Actor-jayasuryas-Balcony-Makeover-for-Home-in-Kochi-by-DLIFE-Home-Interiors-kochi-1024x683Sometimes all your balcony needs is a balcony garden with beautiful and original plants. Balcony plants can be in hanging baskets, clay pot or containers. Addition of a balcony garden will give a natural and organic vibe to the space. One can even create interesting effects in their balcony by combining herbs, vines, flowering plants, and vegetables. Bougainvillea, Indian Basil, Bonsai banana plant, Aloe Vera, creeping roses, money plant, Areca palms, and spider plants are some of the common plants for Indian balcony gardens.

Flowers in balcony are always a good idea for the complete balcony makeover. Bougainvillea; with its beautiful colors, large size and long flowering period introduces intense color to any design. While arranging plants in the balcony, make sure to place them in the shaded or sunny areas depending on the plants. Just like outdoor plants in the garden, this also needs good care. A proper drainage and placement aligned with the strength and direction of the wind gives the added benefit of being evergreen and the effect of a real garden.

The Ideal furniture for balcony

When considering buying balcony furniture, it is important to know the factors such as number of people to use the balcony regularly, location of furniture, and how you want the space to be. Considering all these factors will help you determine the right decorating ideas and the furniture best for you. It is important to buy furniture treated with UV stabilization, as balcony furniture is prone to ultra violet deterioration. A spot with a combination of metal and wood turns your contemporary balcony into a sleek spot. Wood is the ideal material for outdoor settings. If you are on the lookout for more reliable furniture, consider teak. With its high mold resistance, Teak creates a masculine vibe and a statement to the balcony space. Adding a great outdoor rug on the house/ apartment balconies is more inviting and cozy.

Seating with cushions are another aspect that we often forget to overlook. Chairs with lack of cushions can make it look unfinished and all the more uncomfortable. Thus, cushions have to be weatherproof, light, and easy to clean. Combine it with glass top coffee table, the balcony space become well functional and comfortable.
