“Don’t un­der­es­ti­mate the value of good fur­ni­ture on a bal­cony. Choose some­thing that’s col­lapsi­ble to save space when needed.

You can also warm up your bal­cony by lay­ing down deck­ing. Use a colour-treated wood to add a warm, rich brown colour – with­out the messi­ness that comes with stain­ing.

Fi­nally, green plants in bright con­tain­ers are easy to main­tain and in­tro­duce colour for longer pe­ri­ods of time than flow­ers whose bloom may only last two weeks.”

Car­son Arthur, host of HGTV’s Crit­i­cal List­ing
