A BAL­CONY that’s out of the box

HAVE THE BEST LIT­TLE OUT­DOOR ROOM IN YOUR BLOCK

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Patioscapi­ng Ideas -

Put your per­sonal touch on a soul­less, small, rented apart­ment bal­cony. Trans­form that lit­tle gasp of fresh air from a cor­ner for a makeshift clothes line or the kitty lit­ter into an out­door room filled with light, where you can work, play, ex­er­cise, re­lax… and gar­den – think green walls and lots of pots!

Then, when it’s time to move on and up, you can take it all with you and the land­lord will never know about your tem­po­rary changes. Here’s how you can trans­form a bleak and of­ten wasted space into an­other room where med­i­ta­tion meets home of­fice, meets bar/en­ter­tain­ment space. BE­FORE

You can have it both ways with this grow box – an in­door/out­door gar­den in one that adds dra­matic flair to your new space.

This sim­ple struc­ture is a mul­ti­tasker. It’s a break­fast bar in the morn­ing, a sun-soaked of­fice dur­ing the day and an en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre in the evening.

BE­FORE
