Done up your balcony? Here’s a quick checklist to make sure you are ready to roll:
If you have plants, are they easy to maintain?
Are all your hanging pots high enough and secured properly?
Is all your furniture weather resistant? Even in winter, there is still plenty of sunshine and dust. Also, there could be rain showers at points in the season.
If your furnishings aren’t weatherresistant, take them off the balcony and store them safely inside once you have finished using them for the day. If you leave them outside then be prepared to replace them fairly regularly.
Are you consistently dusting and vacuuming the balcony? Don’t let dust settle into your furniture, rugs, cushions etc, as it will be very difficult to clean later.
