Looking for easy ways to spruce up the balcony garden in your apartment? Here are 7 fun, inexpensive tips!
Get some furniture specially designed for use in balconies, maybe a centre table and a couple of chairs or a reading sofa.If you are on a tight budget, you could turn some wooden crates into comfortable seating and table arrangements for your balcony!
Light up your balcony with soothing lights. You could use Christmas lights, paper lanterns, little glass chandeliers or small lanterns.
Putting some traditional Indian lamps or strings of lights in your balcony could do wonders to the way the place looks. A simple string of lights is also enough to turn even the simplest of furniture and decor pieces into a glamorous and romantic setting!
Even with quite a few potted plants, bare railings around the balcony give a wide scope to have a charming balcony garden design. Fix up a few planters on the railings, as many or as few as you like, choosing from the variety of plants available in different shapes and colours.
Dedicate a space for balcony gardening to grow different kinds of herbal plants. Many herbs aren’t easily available in the market and growing your own plants like rosemary, oregano, thyme or lemongrass isn’t difficult at all.
Choose little quirky decor items to add to your balcony – a small rug here, a ceramic frog there, a watering can to place it in a corner, a curtain for the window, or a few cushions for your reading sofa.
Get a bed or litter box for your pet, so they can enjoy your balcony garden with you!
