Modern apartments are some of the most popular properties today may be because they are affordable to the young adults they target and are usually in close proximity to what matters most to them. Apartments are also very popular residential options for other target groups for a number of reasons.
Unfortunately most come with very small balconies making it hard for some to find the relaxation that should be offered by this area. But with a little creativity, you can still enjoy chilling out on the balcony and have it looking amazing the size notwithstanding. Here are some very simple things you can do to transform that tight space.
Choose few but multipurpose furniture pieces
Chairs, a table or a lounger are some of the items that can be on the balcony considering that is it supposed to be your relaxation spot. But with only a small space available in your apartment, it can be hard to even have more than a chair there and still leave some walking space. To counter the size challenge, choose a sitting area or a table that can also serve as a storage area for magazines, books or shoes. You can have few multifunctional pieces well-organized to make all the difference.
Bring in warmth with hanged flowers and plants
Looking at the space you might think that there is nothing much you can do as far as flowers and plants go. The space might be too small for potted plants but you definitely can still enjoy a beautiful with hanged flowers so you do not interfere with the small floor space available. The options are numerous but you should ensure that you select ideal sizes and number of plants or flowers so you do not end up overwhelming the tiny space. The point is to make it welcoming and appealing.
Improvise whenever possible
The good thing about being creative with your balcony is that you can serve more than one purpose without being too expensive. For instance, if it is too much of a challenge to have a lounger on the balcony or a set of chairs, what about using sturdy wooden crates as your sitting area?
They will take up very minimal space and still offer you a comfortable area to relax; you just have to throw a few comfortable cushions and pillows and you are done. The open areas of such crates can serve as storage spaces for other items; you can stack few books or place other items as necessary.
Creativity can transform your small balcony into a peaceful functional haven. Instead of constantly feeling frustrated with what you cannot do with the balcony, find out what you can easily do to create a space you will love chilling out in. The options are numerous even for such tiny spaces and you just need to think a little outside the box to have it working to you preferences. You just need to be easy with the number of items otherwise it could end up looking crumped up.
