Are you thinking of ways to liven up your apartment balcony? Don’t worry about that small space! There are still a lot of things you can do to make sure you are putting it to good use. Here are some tips…
A Mini Garden
Taking care of houseplants can be therapeutic and can help contribute to our overall wellness. Plus, they give us as a brief escape from our busy lives. Whether you are working at home or in the office, taking care of plants allows you to take a moment and recharge with nature.
You can also plant herbs that you can use in your own meals. Start with small pots with holes at the bottom, fill them with soil, and plant your chosen herbs.
If you think you don’t have enough space, go for hanging pots! Not only are they space savers, they can also add some color to your décor. However, before you get excited with all the planting, you have to make sure this doesn’t violate any of your apartment policies.
A Reading Zone
Having a quiet reading nook is the perfect place for a quick getaway from all your daily activities. And it’s very simple to assemble. Just get your comfy chair, fluffy cushions, and your favorite blanket.
Don’t forget to add your personal touch, like a stack of your favorite magazines or some scented candles, to make it feel more homey. This setup is ideal especially if your apartment balcony is facing away from major roads.
A Tea Place
There’s nothing like a nice view while enjoying a cup of tea with friends, right? Your apartment balcony could be the perfect place to have your own tea room and invite guests over. Take out some comfy chairs, some pillows, a small table, and call your friends over.
And don’t forget to serve your favorite cup of tea and other refreshments! Arrange your plants around the space to have a little tea party or maybe small work meetings.
A Cozy Nap Area
If you love taking naps in the afternoon, then you’re going to love napping on your balcony. You can either install a hammock or place some cushions and blanket at the floor. You can also hang some fairy lights for a cozy feel and make it a perfect place for stargazing! Lastly, take out your rug and put lots of comfy pillows to start a great nap.
An Outdoor Barbeque
Barbeque weekends are not just for people with backyards, you can also do it on your apartment balcony! Start by getting some barbeque grills that you can attach to your balcony railing and invite your friends over for barbeque weekends! Of course, like the mini garden idea, make sure this doesn’t violate any of your apartment policies.
A Personal Place
Your apartment balcony can also be a private personal space just for you to enjoy. Use it to stretch in the morning, or for afternoon yoga. Make it look magical by adding candles to small glass jars, and watch as they light up your small space. Add your favorite scented candles, and get a glass of wine or beer.
After a long and tiring day, you deserve to just chill and relax in your own cozy place. And whatever you decide to do with it, as long as it has your personal touch, it will surely improve your overall lifestyle and create lasting memories.
