Your outdoor space is sacred, and a balcony is an ideal way to enjoy the outdoors. It’s one of the few spaces that allows you to experience stepping outside your home while still in your pajamas! Whether it’s a large deck outside your home or a smaller balcony from your apartment, designing a suitable space will help to better utilize the space so you can make the most of it. If you need help decorating this space, the following are a few suggestions you might try.
Add a Table
Once your space is ready, you should look for the perfect table. This table should be large enough to hold your morning coffee and a few plates if you plan to entertain but not so large as to make the space feel cramped. Think about how you’ll use the space and experiment with various table heights, depending on the type of seating arrangement that will work best for you. For example, if you plan on using floor cushions (a smart idea), you’ll want a table that isn’t too tall. A coffee table may work nicely in this situation.
If you’re not using the corner spaces on your balcony, constructing built-in seating is the perfect space-saving solution. It will use the space that usually goes to waste when you place stand-alone furniture, and you can’t make the most of the entire floor space. If your balcony is small, built-in seating opens up the space and allows you to entertain more people without running out of seating space.
Add Some Greenery
Adding plants will bring any space to life no matter how large or small the balcony or deck. If you have floor space, you can place pots around the corners of the balcony to add some greenery. If you need more space, you can add hanging plants that won’t take up floor space but will still add a pop of color. If you want to go a step further, you might use the area for a garden, growing herbs, fruits, and veggies. Herbs are great because they work well in cooking and make your balcony smell divine. A garden balcony works well when entertaining. Not only will your guests enjoy good food…they’ll also know where it came from.
Stock Up On Floor Pillows
If you love entertaining, but your balcony isn’t large enough to seat many people, get floor pillows instead. These can accommodate more people and you can simply put them away when you’re not entertaining to open up the space. These pillows are convenient, and you can place them over the railing of your balcony when not in use, too.
Set A Space For BBQ and Cocktails
When you’re entertaining, there must be good food and drinks. Instead of juggling between your kitchen, bar, and balcony, create a small space outdoors where you can mix drinks and BBQ your favorite foods, while you enjoy the company of friends and family.
No matter how you choose to use the space, protecting your balcony with best-in-class cable railings is always a fine idea. Bay Area Cable Railing are pioneers in designing railings that will stand the test of time and not sag or droop shoulda guest happen to lean against the rail.
