The #PatioLife isn’t just for homeowners and people with large outdoor spaces, it can also be enjoyed by people with small balconies. In the city, the look of upscale balconies in areas such as Manhattan has grown in popularity. For apartment dwellers and condo owners, this is a look that’s worth imitating because it creates a luxurious outdoor space. Creating a relaxing balcony that doesn’t feel cramped and uncomfortable can be a real challenge but it’s not impossible. The best balcony designs make efficient use of space while creating a look that compliments the rest of the home. Check out the link below to watch video of a DIY Condo Balcony Makeover.
To begin with, consider the amount of available space on your balcony and how it can be used most efficiently. Depending on the activities you have planned, certain items will be necessary to accommodate your needs. An outdoor bistro set is great for enjoying a hot cup of coffee in the morning or romantic candle-lit dinners at dawn with a view of the skyline. Just be careful with the size to make sure it will be practical to use and move around.
The video in the link below does a great job of demonstrating how to do a small balcony makeover. Joel Bray wanted to give his balcony the feel of a city urban garden but with a touch of the upscale Manhattan lifestyle. One of the most distinct features of the design is the painted lattice wall that is used as a barrier between his and the neighbor’s balcony. Lattice panels are commonly used for adding privacy to a patio and it is used here to a similar effect. It helps separate the space from that of his neighbor’s while still allowing the flow of natural light. The Sunbrella awning is a nice touch and adds to the luxurious feeling.
