Spruce up Your Balcony with These Tips
Here at Willington Lakes Phase 1, we have balconies for you to enjoy. Your balcony can be a great place to relax and get some fresh air. We want to help you make the most of this space by sharing some tips and ideas with you on how to spruce it up. Check out our ideas below. Enjoy your month here in Orangeburg, SC!
Add seating. Sometimes all you need for a relaxing evening is a breath of fresh air — without venturing out of your apartment! A balcony lets you meet these needs easily, so give yourself a spot to relax by choosing furniture you’ll be excited to use. Use seating for entertaining guests, reading a book by yourself, or resting outdoors. Choose furniture that will let you achieve your vision. We love the small space patio furniture options at Target.
Add plants. Bring a touch of the outdoors into your apartment via your balcony or patio. An easy way to do so is to add some plants. Depending on the plants you choose, you can also add a pleasant aroma at the same time. HGTV provides a handy guide for choosing Fragrant Flowers and Plants. Another way to add some greenery, as well as helping out your cooking, is to plant an herb garden. We like these ideas for Vertical Herb Garden Ideas from Decoist.
Focus on the aesthetics. Having a beautiful space to decorate is a great way to extend your decorating skills from your apartment to the outside world through your balcony. Add your personality to it by decorating it like you might any other room! Use a rug in a design you love to warm you up. (Just measure your space beforehand to ensure your rug fits well.) Check out these patterned rugs from Target, available in several different sizes. Add other items to your space to make it your own such as pillows, vases, wall decor, curtains, and more.
