Whether you live in a condominium, apartment or house, you don’t have to limit landscaping to the interior of your residence. You can extend your landscape design to your balconies as well, no matter how small they are. Here are some tips for you to have a luxurious design for your small or spacious terrace.
Design tips for a small balcony
Just because you have a small terrace doesn’t mean you don’t have the option to decorate it anymore. As long as you have access to your terrace, you still can decorate it and make it look beautiful and have a homey and cozy feeling.
1. You can enjoy a warm breakfast outside on your balcony. How? You can purchase a few outdoor rugs and place them on your balcony however, you have to make sure that the colors of the outdoor rugs that you choose compliment and go with the color of your furniture and the rest of your house. On top of the rug, you can place a small, adorable table with matching small chairs or perhaps even reclining ones so that you can enjoy a hearty breakfast under the sun. You can even use pillows or maybe even a bean bag as chairs on your balcony, however, you have to cover them with plastic whenever you are not using them so that they will not get dirty.
2. If the tiny space on your terrace allows, you may even go shopping for outdoor fountains, however, make sure that you get the one that can fit on your balcony. Having an outdoor fountain on your terrace will make the atmosphere even more comfortable and peaceful, because you can just lay back, close your eyes and listen to the trickling water from your fountain and other forms of nature ring around you.
3. Put a few potted plants on your terrace. Their size depends entirely on you, as long as your balcony will still have some space after you are done decorating it. You can even opt for the plants that can be hung on the wall; this actually is a better option in terms of space. You can even have hanging baskets to further enhance your outdoor design.
Once you’re done decorating, your terrace can even be your open-air lounge whenever you feel like having some fresh air. Fresh air is good for your health, and being able to have a beautiful, nature-friendly surrounding while getting fresh air is a bonus!
