Summer is here and it's time to get outside! Here are 5 easy ways to transform your balcony into a summer oasis.
Light it up
If you want to transform your balcony into an oasis by night, light it up with a string of twinkle lights, add some LED lanterns and get ready to bathe in their glow. Lights make your space more practical and inviting. If you have no power outlets on the balcony, opt for solar powered lighting.
Add some greenery
You can transform your balcony into a lush garden in the sky with pots of plants on the ground, a trellis against the wall for plants that grow up on a vine, hanging planters for plants that hang low, and planter boxes that can adhere to the railing.
Make it comfortable
If you want to spend a lot of time on your balcony, make sure it's comfortable by adding outdoor cushions for your bench or furniture. For chilly nights, keep some throw blankets handy (and protected from the elements) in a storage box.
Change the floor
Most apartment balconies have concrete floors. If you want to change the look and feel, Ikea offers great interlocking wood floor panels that float on top of your existing balcony floor to make it look like hardwood.
We hope these tips help you transform your balcony!
