Spring is in its mid and I’m sure that many of you are already thinking of coming summer. In spring and summer everyone loves outdoor living – breathing fresh air, dipping into the sunlight or moonlight and enjoying the birds’ songs. That’s why it’s high time to think how to prep your balcony for summer, especially if you have some limitations. What do you need to enjoy fresh air in your balcony in summer?
A balcony can help to create the illusion of a larger space inside your home. It also looks classy when you decorate it in the same theme or color palette as the room from which it extends. When the doors opening onto the balcony are left open, the balcony looks like part of the room. This can enable you to use the balcony for extra storage space, such as a cabinet or coffee table, because it is part of the bedroom or room where it belongs.
So what’s the first thing you should consider when decorating your balcony? Why not start with the bare wall? You have the option of not leaving it bare and boring; look for interesting art that you can place against the wall. If you’re worried about the art pieces being too expensive, worry no more.
There are a lot of websites that sell relatively affordable art. You can even find websites that specialize in creating cheap wall art.Make a statement out of your balcony by adding something antique or old. A lot of antique furniture gives the feel of authenticity to the place where you display them.
Look for appropriate antique in thrift stores and you can surely find one that suits your style. Remember that your decorations should not always be expensive, sometimes it also depends on which furniture fits the design best.If you have that artistic drive in you, try to create crafts on your own. There is nothing more cost saving than DIY. Take up a simple DIY project that you can do and start working on it little by little. You can even take your time if you are not in a hurry.
