Your Balcony and Your Patio
When you have decided that your dream home would include a balcony on its top, you will have a lot of fun choosing the style of balcony that is right for you. Your decision will also depend upon the amount of space you have available for your balcony. Most models will offer comfortable seating along with an unobstructed view of the city or country outside. Just measure your balcony to determine how much space you have to work with; taking the other decorations and plants into consideration as well.
If you feel like there is too much space
Consider adding a small chair, stool, table, or any other piece of balcony furniture to really enjoy the space you created for yourself. Adding a small seat to your balcony will give you something comfortable to sit on and enjoy the beautiful panoramas beyond. Pinterest Content offers a great selection of stylish and functional stools for your deck and patio. You might want to try a wicker chair or chaise lounger; they are lovely and comfortable.
If you have a little more space and you’d like some additional seating, you may want to add a bench seating or planters. Bench seating allows you to lay back and relax while admiring the flowers or trees outside your window. A planter set can help you to enhance the look of your garden or keep your plants thriving. Planters are a nice addition because they can be used for a variety of plants; flowers, perennials, shrubs and many others.
There are several styles of lounge furniture that are offered by the pinterest content team including chairs, love seats, loveseats, recliners, loveseats, and sectionals. A favorite of mine is the sectional sofa. Sectionals allow you to place the furniture in any configuration you like including a small breakfast nook, a seating for two, a seating for three, a corner sofa, and even a loveseat along with an Ottoman for a comfortable perch.
The balcony is an outdoor space that can make your home special
Add a few well-chosen accessories and you’ll transform it from a bland and drab space into a lovely retreat. Your balcony ideas don’t have to stop at chairs and tables. A birdbath or waterfall, lights or candles, and bird or butterfly feeders can create a beautiful setting in your backyard. Plants are always an attractive feature and can give your backyard a natural appearance. Plants placed in containers on or near the balcony can also add warmth and color.
Pillows and ottomans are another favorite among people who are thinking about building their own balcony. They are convenient and functional and are usually fairly cheap. You don’t have to purchase or assemble them unless you want to do so. Some people like to customize pillows by adding additions such as photos, flower seeds, hearts, etc. Others choose not to have anything attached to the pillow. In addition to decorative pillows, outdoor furniture such as lounge chairs, swings, and ottomans can also be embellished with interest boards and interest patterns.
You can make the most of your balcony space by building a raised bed
You can make this space comfortable and inviting by using fabric slings or wooden frame planks for the bed frame. Fabric draped over the frame provides extra weight resistance, which prevents your furniture from tipping over. You can dress up your raised bed by hanging white potted plants on the frame. I’ve seen many people that have successfully painted ceramic candle holders and other pots in matching colors to match the slings and wood lounges that are part of their beds and apartments.
The final piece of your patio ensemble is
The furniture around your patio furniture. Rattan chairs, wicker chairs, and table and chair sets can all be decorated with plants and flowers. If your set has a table and chairs, you will want to display those items too. Again, choose lightweight, durable fabric pieces that won’t take up much of your storage space. Some of these pieces include benches and tables with arms that are made of iron or steel and these can either be left outdoors or covered with canvas on a rambler or tarp. Your furniture can be protected from rain, sun, wind, and snow by placing fabric covers over the chairs and tables when they are not being used.
