Creative Ways to Maximise Use of your Balcony

 

Balconies are integral to the condo lifestyle. While we appreciate the extra space and the wonderful views we get from balconies, we aren’t fully conscious of the many more possibilities we can make use of the space. Here are six wonderful ways we can maximise the use of condo balconies during our warmer months;

Breakfast Nook

Would it be wonderful to have your morning coffee while enjoying the views and the warm morning sun? The balcony gives you awesome views and ample natural lighting, perfect for a breakfast nook. Create your own cheerful breakfast nook in one corner of your balcony. Add a small table and a couple of chairs. 

BBQ Lounge

Partying and spending time with friends is possible in your condo. Use up the additional space on your balcony to set up a BBQ lounge. Most condo balconies already include BBQ implements like the grill and power outlets. Just add a small fridge for the beer and some comfy seats. Make sure to check your condo rules and regulations regarding balcony barbecues.

Pocket Garden

Planning to grow your own herbs and spices at home, cultivate your cactus collection or small flower garden? The balcony is the perfect spot for condo owners to start a garden. Live plants can also help purify indoor air and add colour to your home. Your balcony should have enough room for small potted plants.

Mini Bar

Transform your balcony from being the extra random space into your end-of-the-day haven by installing a minibar. The balcony is the ideal place to relax, enjoy the city views and cool breeze and dream of your future. Spend quality moments on your balcony, alone or with good company, while sipping your favourite wine.

Reading Corner

Convert one inner corner of your balcony into a reader’s nook. The ample lighting, cool and peaceful surroundings of the balcony are conducive to reading. Set up a couch or a comfy seat, a lamp for night reading and a few shelves to hold the books and other reading materials. Now, you’re ready for your next reading marathon.

​Extra Storage

One of the top condo lifestyle challenges is the lack of storage space. You can allocate a small section of your balcony to store rarely used or items you want out of the way.
