These Ideas Are Going to Give You Balconies the Makeover of Your Dreams

Most of our modern-day city apartments come with very few privileges (and space!). In homes that were available back in the day, like about two or three decades ago, we would fancy having an outdoor area, a garage to park our cars, a park that was common to everyone in the building and huge balconies and terraces attached. If you are a homeowner that has a balcony at home, count your blessings and make the most of it.  These 8 awesome ideas to amp up your balconies will speak volumes for your balconies and give them the makeover they deserve to have!

1.       Redo the wall paint: This one is the easiest way to give your balconies an instant makeover. All you need to do is to change the wall paint of your balcony to achieve a totally different look and feel for your space. Go with the colour of your choice and play around a little if you like to experiment. Even better, you can even draw a wall mural if you have an artist hidden inside you!

2.       Add cushions and other decor accents: If you're someone who wants to make smaller changes here and there without really having to move mountains then this idea is perfect for you. Sometimes little things make the most difference. So, add in a few decor items like frames, wall hangings or even a fancy overhead light to change it up a bit. You can also upholster the existing chairs or sofas that are placed in your balconies and change the pillow covers to brighter colours to add that pop to your balconies.

3.       Update the flooring of your balcony: Refurbishing the flooring of your balconies can dramatically change the look and feel of the balcony. You could either install faux grass or rugs or add decking to the floors or then just simply change the floor tiles and install new, unique looking tiles. This is definitely a game changer in how your balcony looks.

4.       Add foliage: Barely we may have seen a balcony that does not have any plants in it. Some foliage in your balcony enhances the look of the balconies and is also very pleasing to the eyes and the mind. If there is limited space, then hanging around a few plants is a great idea. You can also install a wall mounted system to hold dome planters. A small point to note-buy plants only after assessing the amount of sunlight coming in your balconies, else you may end up buying the wrong kind of plants that may not flourish.

5.       Redecorate the wall spaces: There are so many ways in which you can decorate the wall spaces. You can create a wall where you have a system of plug-in plant pots that will make the wall look like an accent wall that grows plants on it. Another way to redo your walls is to add some lighting on the walls and add some wall decor on it to make it look like a ‘highlight’ wall. You can also add some curtains on the walls to give it a homely feel and make it look like the perfect extension to your home.

6.       Install fencing: Installing fencing is another brilliant idea to create a cosy corner for yourself, which is not your bedroom. Not to mention that it will also add privacy to the balcony space and all those eyes can stay away from peeping into your balconies. It also will enhance the overall aesthetic of your spaces.

7.       Let there be light: Yet another easy way to amplify the cosiness and the ambience of the balcony is to add lights. They not only make the balcony look great but also add to the functionality in the evenings once the sun sets. You can find a variety of options in the market. From string lights to lanterns, from wall mounted lamp shades to LED ceiling lights, you can choose to have lighting that suits your taste and preference.

8.       Play around with the furniture: A lot of the balconies today might have limited space. In that case, less is more is the mantra that would work the best. You can consider having low seating with light chairs that don't clutter the area much. You can also choose to customise the furniture per your requisites. 

Remodelling balconies could get tricky and it may seem like a mission you can't accomplish. But thanks to the vast access that we have on the internet, it doesn't turn out to be as difficult as it seems. If you still feel like this is not enough, then it is always best to bring an expert on board who can design the balcony for you as per your requirements!
