Relive the Tropics Everyday – Balcony Decor Ideas
Start out with a rug. Protect your feet from the intensity of the hot Summer sun. Of course, outdoor floors can be cold too. An outdoor rug provides a barrier between your feet and the floor no matter the temperature. Don’t you love this set up? Warm beige, sand, and white colored decor with just a little greenery.
2. Build a Dual Purpose Screen for Garden Plants and Privacy
Build a dual purpose screen to divide a balcony that is shared with a neighbor. The plant stand not only holds plants but acts as a privacy screen. Grow plants that either cascade down or upright Sun loving plants for even more privacy. As the plants mature, they fill in any openings in the screen.
3. Go Natural with Reed Fencing as a Privacy Barrier
As an alternative to a plant stand screen for privacy, install a natural reed fencing section. The natural reed is beautiful however, not as sturdy as the plant stand so secure it well to your balcony rail structure. We love the mix of linen fabrics and natural textures of the reed and rattan.
4. Drape Fabric from the Ceiling for Warmth
On cooler days, drape a piece of fabric to protect you from the cold and wind. Not to mention that this fabric will come in handy on days when the sun is at its full strength over the Summer months.
