Iconic Decor Ideas to Brighten up any Balcony
A highly underrated component of a well thought and designed house is the Balcony. A space that is also a private access to fresh air is most often given the least credit. When it comes to designing a house, we see large rooms dominating and eventually suffocating the balcony into a tiny space that’s as good as a window. This probably happens because one does not know what to do with this space, when there are numerous creative ways of giving it that ‘oomph’ factor.
Swing your stress away
Can you think of a better way to relax after a tiresome day at work than to swing your stress away? Quite literally. Or maybe unwind on a holiday, a date between you and your books on a cane swing designed for one. Cane furniture is complimented best with wooden flooring, however, it never hurts to experiment. A book rack can be added as well, for easy access during those reading sessions. If you’re not a ‘Me time’ kind of person, you can always opt for the two-seater swing and chatter away into the night with your spouse.
After all, the balcony is the front yard/backyard of an upper storey living space. Why not, make it appear like one too? Lace your balcony with some delicate creepers for a picturesque view every morning. Bring in some pots and you might just develop a new hobby. Bonsai works best for those who are passionate about gardening and have time on hand to dedicate towards it. The lush green will have a relaxing effect on your eyes and you get fresh oxygen every day. A win-win situation for all. Flooring can be of any rough stone to give it a contemporary look and to flatter the breath-taking greenery.
