Which part of your house do you love after your bedroom?
Is it your comfortable and cozy balcony?
The answer could be yes, because practically speaking, many of us have fallen in love with the balcony since the pandemic began.
Since last year, we have seen summer, spring, autumn, monsoon, and winters pass by, from our balcony while chit-chatting with our family members. Sometimes we have prepared and eaten barbeque food, called up our friends and cousins while sitting on a swing and talked for hours, listened to songs, have read books, watched movies or series on the OTT platforms etc while sitting in the balcony.
Needless to say, our balconies have seen us in most of our moods and we share an emotional connection with it.
So here are some ideas to pay back to our balconies by recreating its look.
Add table in the balcony
Treat your balconies like you treat your living room. Add a sofa and table in that area too.
If you have a small balcony, do not worry! You can add a foldable table and chair then. Apart from this, look out for swings that can be easily hung there.
Make it green
Make your balcony more natural. Your balcony should be filled with planters carrying many plants on it. Add some herbal plants too, along with plants bearing flowers, fruits or vegetables. Along with mud pots for plants, put plants in old coffee mugs as well.
If you want to totally relax in your balcony, have beautiful and comfortable rugs there. Generally people tend to sit on the chairs, but there is no harm in changing this habit. Make your balcony the next living room of your house.
Add wall painting
Add one or two small wall paintings on the balcony. This helps you to beautify the decor of the balcony.
Coloured bright walls
Do not keep your balcony dull with just white colour. Choose vibrant colours like Green, Blue, Yellow and have a print of leaves, flowers on that.
Many people do not take the presence of shutters in the balcony very seriously. But start doing that.
In order to keep your balcony clean, insects, and birds free, fix shutters there. These shutters should be open for some time during day time to give natural sunlight to plants.
To lighten up the balcony during the night, fix lamps in the balcony. Either have lamps in the corners of the balcony or at the centre of the ceiling. Lamps will help to get a little light in the balcony and help to keep the atmosphere of night as well.
Texture of walls
Especially for the balcony, you can select a different texture of walls. The texture could be made of bricks or stones, as it will help to give a more natural and organic vibe to the balcony. Also, this kind of texture will pair with plants more.
Imagine how beautiful that balcony will look.
Though air will be all around the balcony but do not forget to hang a fan in the ceiling. A fan becomes a necessity during the summers in the balcony.
Wooden texture tiles
From the above points, we can see how the balcony can be turned into a natural arena of the house.
So here is the one last point to remember. Go for brown or wooden textured tiles for the flooring of the balcony.
So here are some points for revamping your balcony, even if it is just a small one.
