Balconies or terraces are in fact a place with unlimited potential, which can be used as we want depending on our needs and ideas. How about a morning coffee on the terrace before going to work? Why not? What about a mug of cocoa and a warm blanket before going to bed? By all means. Let's meet friends to drink wine and play Scrabble. Sure! How about having a barbecue with friends? Yes! What about a romantic dinner together? Certainly. Let's have a Sunday dinner together. Of course. How about doing yoga on the terrace or in the domesticity of our garden? As we can see, there are a lot of ideas of spending time and the only things that limit us are our possibilities and our imagination.
It does not matter if it is a small balcony in a block of flats or a huge terrace with a beautiful view. Each of them can be a place where you want to sit down, invite your friends, sit with a cup of tea or read a favourite book.
We do not need much that a balcony in a block of flats or a small terrace become a bridge to nature and the oasis which shows our personality. We just need to pay attention to some issues.
First, we need to focus on the coherent unity. We should not combine too many colours, patterns or shapes in our balcony or terrace. It can only cause an impression of untidiness and it will create the chaos. After all, this place is supposed to give us the space and the breath. Designing our balcony or terrace, we should use natural advantages of this place such as insolation, a beautiful view or shadow. The charm of our balcony or terrace should be used as well.
Secondly, if we want to rearrange a metamorphosis of our balcony or terrace or design our place from scratch, we can achieve our goal by using accessories. Such things as pillows, lanterns, candles or flowerpot with flowers are perfectly suitable for it. The undeniable advantage of accessories is the fact that they do not require a lot of space and they have enormous power. This fact is important, especially in case of places like balconies which are usually very small. We do not need furniture or equipment requiring a lot of space. Nice things, optimistic colours and fragrant potted flowers are good enough to make our balcony a lovely place of a rest in the city.
Finally, the most important thing is the fact that your invention, ideas and creativity matter. We should remember that our balcony or terrace do not have to be like a place from a modern design magazine about houses and gardens. It is important to feel good calmly and comfortably in our balcony or terrace. It should be our place.
