While decorating your home, you always consider the living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen to come up with the best results. But, amidst all, most people forget about a very important part of the home, i.e., the balcony.
Just like any other room, your balcony, when decorated beautifully, can add more innovation to the overall outlook of the home. In fact, you can make it a space that’s perfect for relaxing your mind after a long hard working day.
So, how do you do it? What are some incredible ways to get the best out of your balcony? If you want to know the same, then here are some ideas:
1. Add Plants
If you do not have a garden of your own, you can give your balcony a similar touch. And trust us on this! You won’t regret it.
First things first, let’s discuss what plants you can add up to your balcony. Now, if you are living a busy life, we know it wouldn’t be possible for you to maintain the plants every day. In that case, you should choose plant types that do not require too much maintenance.
You can try out plant types like Aloe vera, which isn’t just useful for hair and skin but also works as a green adornment for your balcony. Just like that, you can get plants like snake plants, succulents, pothos, ZZ plants, and Chinese monkey plants. If your balcony is a bit short of light, cast iron plants will make a great pick.
If your balcony is spacious and you have time to maintain the plants, you can step up the game and get plants like Golden Bamboo, Lavender, and Gardenia. You can also try out Verbena and Geranium, as they give that burst of colors to the balcony ambiance.
Moving on, how to arrange these plants on your balcony. Well, the best way to decorate the pots and planters is by simply putting them on a shelf or a corner of the balcony. For small plants, you can also make a plant wall or add to the hanging basket and attach it to the ceiling.
If you want to give your simple balcony a subtle, minimalistic, and modern look, you shouldn’t miss out on adding paintings to the same. This is because paintings compliment all the accessories of the balcony and enhance the ambiance even more! While you can select from several genres of paintings, the best out of all (according to us) has to be beach wall paintings.
Beach wall paintings have the touch of nature already in them! So, you wouldn’t have to look around much for the same. Besides, there are several types of beach paintings to try out.
Consider this colorful beach painting (below), for example. It beautifully features the captivating hues of a beach sky and ocean. The beach rocks that are highlighted through vibrant colors look top-notch! All in all, this arrangement would look fantastic on your balcony wall.
Similarly, if you want something serene and relaxing for your balcony, then this dark sunset painting (below) is the one to choose. Just look at it!
Whether it’s the orange sky, the long grass, or the flowing water, the entire scenario is so mesmerizing that you can spend your time just looking at it. A cup of coffee, a rainy day, your balcony, and this painting. The combination would be oh-so-perfect!
If not, you can also add a touch of Greece to your balcony with the enchanting Santorini oil painting (above). The white house amidst the blue ocean isn’t worth the miss for a sophisticated look. You can also find out more similar paintings to get the best out of your balcony.
It’s nothing like sitting on your balcony on the weekend, reading a book, and enjoying the beautiful view of the world outside. And to enjoy this “me-time,” a chair is a must.
From hanging basket chair swings to premium rocking chairs, there are several options to try out when buying a chair for your balcony. But, the main point to keep in mind here is to get a durable and high-quality product for your use.
You can buy chairs made of wood, plastic, or even bamboo cane. This reminds us of the chic bamboo cane garden chair that would look outstanding, especially if your balcony has lots of plants.
We would recommend you to buy a chair as per your balcony space. If it does not have much space, do not buy large products like a rocking chair. Make sure to decide on the chair color that contrasts with other accessories on your balcony.
4. Grass Carpet
An incredible way to decorate your balcony floors is by using the grass carpet. It gives a vibrant green look to the balcony and also resembles the natural grass. We know many people must be thinking about how it could skid easily during the rainy season. But that’s not the case here!
Most of these carpets are made with anti-skid latex that can ensure the carpet is in place, even during wet conditions. Its non-slip backing is durable, so you wouldn’t have to struggle with its fading.
The balcony doesn’t require lights during the day, as the sunlight is sufficient. But, for the night times, you can go for lamps and string lights to add to your balcony.
We recommend you to twist the string lights on the balcony railings or hang them on the ceilings. You can also add a small chandelier if you want, although it may cost a little higher.
6. Iron Balcony Railing
If you’re looking for a beautiful addition to your home that will undoubtedly stand out, then wrought iron balcony railings might be the best option for you.So, if you want something unique that will instantly add value and aesthetic appeal, a modern wrought iron railing for your balcony might be the way to go.
While it may cost a little more than a traditional wood railing, a modern balcony wrought iron railing will not only last longer but will also look better. It is simple to install and come in a variety of styles and it is also affordable. Iron railings can be easily maintained. Coating them with paint every now and then will keep them from corroding. It’s easy to make your favorite design with this material since it can be molded into different shapes and patterns.
So these are some unique ways by which you can decorate your home balcony. Ofcourse, these tips are just to give you an idea. You can try out any element that you think would look good on your balcony.
Just make sure that the accessories you add look promising altogether. That’s it!
