We never imagined that the day would come when the balcony would become the most important place in our home. We do not even think that its value would grow like foam and would be considered a luxury. “You at least have a balcony” or “Don’t complain, you have a balcony”, I have heard several times these days. And I have thought “how lucky I am, I am rich” Because in these times who have a balcony has a treasure. And I want to share that today, my amazement at the upward price of the balconies, and my reflection on how lucky you are if you also have one, no matter how small. Because the time has come to give the balcony its place. Before today, that small space was not part of our home, but today it is essential. We encourage you to enjoy your balcony like never before and give you keys to make your balcony beautiful. Although this is not important, the decoration stays in the background, but if it entertains you or makes you happy to decorate it, we show you ideas. Inspiring images to take your outings to the balcony one point further. And we assure you that you will not go out alone at the time of the applause, no, you will want to make life in it. We hope you like our proposals and that the balcony lives!
And one day homes won a balcony
At that very moment, we were not aware, but in a few hours, we were all turning our eyes towards that forgotten space in our home. And the ugly duckling became a beautiful swan. In just a week of confinement, we have lived more on the balconies than in our entire lives. Did you ever think that you would spend so many hours on the balcony? And we have dedicated ourselves seriously, first with a thorough cleaning, and then adding those special touches that make a space have “soul”. Do you want to make your balcony nice too? We tell you everything you can do for your balcony because you are already enjoying everything that the balcony can do for you.
Guide to make your balcony beautiful
Are you excited to decorate your balcony? We tell you the essentials to enjoy this space and some very decorative tips. Join us!
1- You need a table and two chairs Now!
In our recommendations to put your beautiful balcony, you can not miss, however small, a table and its two chairs. Because these days you are going to want to have breakfast on the balcony, read on the balcony, have a beer on Friday on the balcony … As we imagine that you have never enjoyed the balcony, surely you have never bought the table and chairs, so we suggest you plan good, nice and cheap this Ikea model. And we propose it knowingly because it is the one we have on our balconies. Small, practical and resistant. Perfect for small balconies. Although you are not left alone with this proposal, investigate what other options in small size the Swedish giant gives us. Well, there are really cute in terms of outdoor furniture. And now that Ikea makes home deliveries, you have no excuse, because it won’t be priced.
2- Plants, please
After the table and chairs, what any self-respecting balcony needs are a few small plants. Yes, in Ikea there is also, hehehehe … But let’s go step by step. I don’t think you don’t even have a humble plant in your home. Well, the time has come to pamper your plants. Clean the dead leaves, fill the pots with soil, water carefully and give them lots of love. Cacti are also worth it if you are one of those people denied for plants. And if you have never had plants, turn to family and neighbors. Be careful, the plants are left in the common spaces. And be very careful with washing your hands well at all times. And the talks about how beautiful the geranium has, or what you do to make the bougainvillea grow so much, that they are from balcony to balcony please, as in the past.
3- Textiles on the balcony
Because there is nothing more dressing, and that confers as much personality as textiles. Cushions, tablecloths, and napkins, rugs, blankets, etc. Dress your balcony with beautiful fabrics and you will turn it into an extension of the interior. Ideally, you should buy accessories designed for outdoors, resistant fabrics, but you can start by using what you have at home. Take a look, surely with what you have in your home, you can make your balcony beautiful without spending.
4- The lighting
Lighting is as important as the rest of the aspects, in order to fully enjoy our balcony. Thanks to the lighting elements you can add a romantic and relaxed touch to your balcony. Luminous garlands are our favorites to decorate balconies, but if you are going to do many activities on the balcony you will have to integrate the appropriate light. For example, if you are going to read on the balcony you will need a reading point.
Another idea that we love is lighting the balcony with candles, how beautiful!
5- The warmth of the wood
We agree that the fresh breath to your balcony will come from the plants, but the warm touch can be achieved with the wood. In addition to the wooden tiles prepared to cover the floors, which we have to say are fantastic and insulate from low temperatures, you can cover your walls with wood. Look at what cozy wooden balconies.
There are few positive things we can draw from this crisis, it is true, but the discovery of the balconies is one of them. Get out on the balcony! You will not believe the number of nice neighbors in your building. Courage and strength!
