Balconies are all about space
Have a great balcony? Create the perfect rest and relaxation space with planters, glass railings and more
Your home is a reflection of your personality. Besides making your home fit your daily needs, having a special corner that not only makes your house look aesthetically pleasing but brings you closer to nature is important. A balcony is the only place that serves the purpose.
Here are a few things to keep in mind before doing up your balcony:
A balcony must have a sitting corner that opens to a park or garden. If there’s no park view, then you can create an eco-friendly green effect with planters and creepers on the alls. Plants should be kept closer to drain traps to avoid water spills on the floor Maintenance free furniture such as ceiling mounted swing chairs will free up extra space.
A glass railing is transparent and can easily be cleaned with a sponge or paper. You can use frosted glass to avoid stains Also, avoid placing airconditioning outdoor units as pigeons usually like to nest there and make the place dirty. Let the dish TV antennas and laundry hanging be limited to terrace. Hanging pendant lights can add that touch of space to your outdoor space.
Keep the railings high and make sure the gaps between railings are not wider than four inches for children’s safety. You can cover them with plastic garden fencing, shade cloth, plastic or acrylic sheet to avoid any accidents
