In the warmer months the balcony comes into its own. It’s the perfect spot for coffee and catching up with friends or just enjoying quiet time with a book. We’ve collated some ideas on how to make the most of your balcony.
A Touch of Colour
The right colour palette can transform a balcony. Dark colours can make a space feel confining. Choose cool greys, light tones and a pop of colour to open it up.
Don’t be indoors when the weather calls for you to be outdoors. Whether you’re looking for a table to host a feast, or a smaller one for more intimate occasions, tables are available in all shapes and sizes and can turn your balcony into a destination.
The Balcony Garden
For most people the balcony becomes a surrogate garden. It’s a place where you can grow herbs in easy reach of the kitchen and where you can surround yourself with greenery. Australian natives, succulents and cacti love a sun-drenched balcony.
A Spot to Lounge
A balcony is where you can kick back and put your feet up. They are also places that cop the brunt of nature. Outdoor furniture must be durable and stand up to the elements. Choose your seating wisely and you’ll be sitting pretty.
